1. Determine Your Home’s Market Value

The first step is to determine your home’s market value. This will help you set a reasonable price for your home when you list it for sale. Research similar homes that have recently sold in your area and see what they sold for. Hiring a real estate agent during this step is also very helpful in saving you time and stress.

2. Prepare Your Home
Preparing your home for open houses and viewing is paramount to successfully selling your home. Start with decluttering and deep cleaning your home. Consider making minor home improvements to make your home more attractive to potential buyers.
3. List Your Home on the Market
Now that your home is ready for sale, you should list it on the market. This step is a lot easier with a trustworthy Realtor by your side! They will help you describe the property, take professional photos, and market it to potential buyers.
4. Let the Offers Roll In
Once your home is listed, you will get offers from interested buyers. Review each offer carefully and consider if they are offering enough to make selling worth it for you. You can also make a counteroffer if you feel the offer is too low or doesn’t meet your needs.
5. Closing the Deal
Once you accept an offer, it’s time to move into the final steps of the home-selling process. These include closing on the sale, signing paperwork, and ensuring everything is complete for the sale to be finalized. Cook & Company Real Estate Team is here to make this process run smoothly with their experience and relationships with lenders, attorneys, and appraisers throughout the Merrimack Valley.
