Get a good real estate agent.
Some questions you should ask your prospective realtor are as follows:
Be observant about your real estate agent. Does the realtor agent pay close attention to details. Do they seem organized. You'll want to be comfortable about your realtor's abilities to maximize your home's selling price.
Getting your home inspected and appraised.
You may also want to get your home appraised to ensure that you are selling the home for what it is worth and also according to what other similar homes in your area are selling for. You can't sell a home for $200,000 when a similar home and property is selling for $165,000. The same is true for a home selling at too low of a price. An appraiser will be more objective. However, be sure to point out the important upgrades and added features of your home to the appraiser.
Factors in pricing your home.
Immediate locations also influence the worth of the home. Remote locations are not as desirable as closer in-town locations providing quick access to stores and services. A home in a culdesac will be worth more than a home on a busy street. Visual surroundings like back yards facing a forested area, mature trees on the lot, or nearby streams can enhance the home's market value.
