Research for Selling Your Home

There is a lot to be done behind the scenes of selling your home. The most helpful thing you can do is to hire a real estate agent to help guide you! Finding a trusted realtor to help you through the process of selling your home will give you the peace of mind that everything that needs to be taken care of will be. But, if you do want to do a little homework yourself, that is okay! It will most likely be helpful if you understand certain things like why to price your home to sell. 

So how can you do your own research when selling your home? Do some home shopping yourself! Find out what this entails in the next sections below.

Let’s find out what kind of research to do before listing your home in the next section.

What to Do to Research Selling Your House

Now that you know you’re going to sell your home, you can do a little bit of homework on your own! Your real estate agent should help you compare similar listings that are currently on the market and those that have recently sold. If you want to do some preparation on your end, here’s how.

Attend open houses or schedule showings for listings in your area that are similar to your home. You’ll find out what your competition is and how much the sellers are asking for. Take note of the home sizes, lot sizes, home condition, appearance, floor plans, location, amenities, and other features.

The next thing you want to do is not only figure out what sellers that are currently on the market are selling their homes for, but what homes have sold for. Compare the listing versus the sold prices of similar homes to yours in your neighborhood, community, or general area. This will help you get an idea of what price you can ask for when you list your home.

Keep in mind from our previous post, if you’re serious about selling your home, don’t price your home too high!
