So you’ve noticed a number of “Coming Soon” signs around town and they’ve got you thinking about selling your home or at least thought about what you could potentially get for your home? It has never been more important to be armed with some very important information. One of the most important items is to know your market value. Working with a skilled realtor with a deep local knowledge of the area market is paramount. He should be able to provide you with a comprehensive comparative market analysis (CMA) detailing home and area details, neighborhood trends, area school data and so much more. It’s important however to understand the most important factor is that the market value is essentially dictated by what the buyer is willing to pay.
In an extremely strong seller’s market like in Maplewood and South Orange, too often, sellers tend to overlook very apparent issues in their home. Paying attention and properly addressing concerns about your home could make the difference between spending an extended period of time on the open market of selling at the average price and selling at a heightened value.
A skilled agent will help answer some very important questions:
- What is my home worth?
- Is there a best time to sell my house?
- Are there important factors to consider when selling a home?
- What should I do to get my house ready?
- Should I make repairs?
- What are my obligations to disclose?
- Are there standard contingencies in an offer?
- Should I be flexible in granting contingencies?
- What do I do if my house isn’t getting activity?
