Ready to sell? 3 Ways an Agent Helps Get You Started
Ready to sell? 3 Ways an Agent Helps Get You Started

Mon, February 29, 2016

The process of putting your home on the market and finding your next place can be overwhelming. Fortunately, an experienced agent can help you weigh all your options. Here’s where a professional might start:

1. Researching your home’s value
An agent will have the pulse on the current market. Together, you can review how much comparable properties have been selling for and how long they lingered on the market. The agent can provide a realistic idea of what your home is worth, and how fast (or long) it could take to find a buyer.

2. Working with your budget
After you learn what your current home is worth, you’ll be able to hone in your options for your next one. An agent can give you an idea of what types of properties and which neighborhoods are in your budget. A good agent who knows the area will also be aware of local housing trends. He or she can advise you when might be a good time to buy.

3. Making your home market-ready
There may be work to do before you put your house on the market. A Realtor can help you prioritize repairs. He or she can also recommend a home inspector for an expert opinion on features like roofs and HVAC.
