Are you planning on selling your home? Congratulations! You’re making a smart decision to sell now and take advantage of the demand for homes in Orange County.
In this post we will cover the home selling process so you will know what to expect and be prepared for every step of the home selling process.
Get It Ready to Sell
The most essential step to the home selling process is getting it ready to sell. This process should include:
• Cleaning – Make sure that your home is thoroughly cleaned on the inside and outside of the home.
• Consolidation – Go through every room of your home and remove any unused items, then place those items in storage because, the more storage space that your home has, the more desirable it will be to buyers who are looking for homes with a lot of square footage.
• Repairs – Have you been planning on fixing your broken fence, re-roofing your home or replacing doors? Make these repairs now because, the fewer repairs a buyer has to make means that the closer you will come to getting the full asking price for your home.
Hire a Realtor
Once your home is ready for sale the next step in the home selling process is to hire a qualified Orange County Realtor who will list your home and get it sold.
During the process of hiring a Realtor make sure that you hire someone who has verifiable experience, great references, and most important of all, a marketing plan for selling your home that includes online advertising, local advertising, open houses and more.
Be a Part of the Process
When your home is on the market it’s going to get a lot of potential buyers driving by it, and attending open houses, you must be prepared to be a part of the home sale process because, you want to choose a buyer that you feel 100% comfortable with and you want to be able to leave your home knowing that the buyer will love it just as much as you have for years to come.
