Tips for First Time Home Sellers
If the time has come to sell your home and you’ve never been a seller before, here are some tips for
getting it right the first time:
Make sure your property is in “tip-top” shape so it creates a great first impression.
Thoroughly clean your home and make sure all mechanical systems are in good working order.
Use a REALTOR®… don’t try doing it yourself… and be sure to let your REALTOR® know that this is
your first experience as a home seller. Your REALTOR® will develop an effective marketing plan to
maximize exposure. They will also research the competition and help you price your home
competitively. REALTORS® Know what homes have recently sold for and what others are asking.
Cooperate with your REALTOR® to make your home readily available to prospective buyers and other
real estate professionals. Stay in touch regularly with your agent to review buyer activity and comments
– and to hear the agent’s suggestions.
Selling your first home can be an emotional event but having a professional by your side to assist you
will make it easier.
