3 Important Details to Know Before Selling Your House, Red Wing, Minnesota

Deciding to move is a huge and often overwhelming choice for many people, which is why it’s easy for sellers to make mistakes along the way. However, by knowing how to navigate the complex real estate market, you can get more for your listing and make the transition to a new home easier. If you’re looking to move, here are three aspects you should know before selling your house.

What to Remember When Selling a Home

1. Timing Matters

Nobody likes to move in the dead of winter, which is why timing matters when selling your place. In fact, while only 16% of homes sell above list price in December, that number rises dramatically in the spring, with 25% of homes selling above the listing price in May. Before you start the process of selling your house, think about when you would likely attract the most offers. For instance, if your landscaping looks incredible in the spring and summer but a little dull in the fall and winter, think about listing your home in April or May instead of September or October.

2. Buyers Notice Details 

selling your houseWhen potential buyers walk through your home, they will notice small details like inconsistencies with carpet, paint, and trim. To prevent something small from impacting offers, walk through your home with a friend, and ask them to point out problems they notice. Additionally, paying for a pre-listing home inspection can help you to target issues proactively.

3. Working With Real Estate Agents Helps

Selling your house is all about exposure, which is why working with a real estate agent is so helpful. In addition to listing your home on national databases that make it easy for people to find your place online, real estate agents also represent buyers that might be perfect for your place.
