Tip 7: Deciding On A REALTOR

According to the National Association of REALTORS®, nearly two-thirds of the people surveyed who sell their own homes say they wouldn't do it again themselves. Primarily reasons include setting a price, marketing handicaps, liability concerns, and time constraints. When decidind on a REALTOR®, consider two or three, be as wary of quoted that are too low and those that are too high.

All REALTORS® are not the same! A professional REALTOR® knows the market and has information on past sales, current listings, a marketing plan, and will provide their background and references. Evaluate each candidate carefully on the basis of their experience, qualifications, enthusiasm, and personality. Be sure to choose someone that you turst and feel confident they will do a good job on your behalf.

Tip 8: Ensure You Have Room To Negotiate 

Before setting on your asking price, make sure you level yourself enough room in which to bargain. For example, set your lowest and highest selling price. Then check your priorities to know if you'll price high to maximize profit or price closer to market value if you want to sell quickly.

But be sure to price your home properly, you don't want to price your home too high and sit on the market for a long period...finding that your home has become stale on the market.
