Answers to Common Questions You Might Ask Before Putting Your Home on The Market

Homeowners everywhere will undoubtedly have questions about the process of selling their homes. Meeting with a Realtor for the first time can be overwhelming, as there are many factors to consider and details to navigate. Don't worry. We've compiled a list of some essential questions you should be sure to ask when meeting with your Realtor. The Swan Agency Real Estate team can help make the transition as smooth as possible.

Questions To Ask a Selling Realtor Before Putting Your Home on the Market

As you're meeting with a Realtor for the first time, the following questions become imperative to help you navigate the process and make the best decisions for your home.

  1. How much is my home worth? This is probably one of the most important questions to ask, as you'll want to know how much your home can realistically sell for. Your Realtor will consider several factors when estimating this, such as location and market conditions.
  2. Is now the right time? You must weigh personal factors when determining the best time to sell a home, but your Realtor can give you more insight into the current housing market. A "buyer's" market means that there are more homes for sale than buyers, giving buyers the advantage. A "seller's" market means the opposite. Your Realtor will help you understand how your home fits into this dynamic and what that could mean for your listing price and selling time.
  3. What should I do to prepare my home? If you want to make sure your house is ready to show, several tasks need to be completed beforehand. First, declutter and organize your home to make it appear more spacious. You may also require minor repairs and upgrades like repainting, repairing cracked tiles or fixtures, and making the yard more appealing. You'll also need a plan to stage your home, including having the right furniture, fresh flowers in vases, and keeping everything clean and tidy.
  4. How long will it take to sell my home? This truly depends on various factors, including market conditions and how well your home is prepared to sell. Your Realtor can give you an estimate based on their knowledge and expertise, so don't hesitate to ask.
