The team at EXIT Realty Urban Living has helped countless residents throughout Hudson County, NJ, sell their houses. Here, they outline a brief guide to what’s involved in the sales process.

What to Discuss With Your Agent

You’ll also discuss any goals for the sale, like a specific time frame or a willingness to wait for a higher bid. Ask the agent if they have any recommendations for preparing the home in addition to the tasks listed below.
