How to Avoid a Complex House Selling Journey

by Cindy Poulsen Real Estate 03/15/2019

The home selling journey offers no guarantees. Thus, if you fail to prepare to sell your house, you risk encountering problems that may make it tough for you to maximize your home sale earnings.

Ultimately, there are many things you can do to avoid a complex house selling journey. These include:

1. Price Your Home Competitively

The initial asking price for your home may dictate your house selling success. If you set an aggressive initial asking price for your residence, you may be better equipped than other sellers to enjoy a seamless house selling experience.

Oftentimes, it helps to review the housing market in your city or town. If you evaluate the prices of available houses in your area that are similar to your own, for instance, you may be able to determine a price range for your house.

You also may want to conduct an appraisal before you list your residence. An appraisal enables you to obtain a property valuation that could help you set a competitive initial asking price for your home.

2. Upgrade Your Home's Curb Appeal

How your home looks to buyers may have far-flung effects on the house selling journey. If your residence boasts amazing curb appeal, you could accelerate the home selling journey and boost the likelihood of getting the best price for your residence.

To bolster your home's curb appeal, it generally is a good idea to mow the lawn, fix any damaged siding and perform other house exterior upgrades. Of course, if you need help with home exterior enhancements, you can always reach out to local house improvement professionals for assistance.

3. Work with a Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent knows what it takes to promote a home to the right groups of buyers, along with ensure a seller can optimize his or her property sale earnings. Plus, a real estate agent takes the guesswork out of navigating each stage of the house selling journey.

Let's not forget about the home selling guidance a real estate agent can provide, either. If you are uncertain about how to price your house, for instance, a real estate agent can offer a data-driven recommendation. Or, if you are searching for quick, easy ways to enhance your home's curb appeal, a real estate agent is happy to provide you with home exterior improvement tips.

In addition, a real estate agent is an expert housing market resource. He or she is prepared to respond to your home selling concerns and questions at any time. And if you are worried at any point during the home selling journey, a real estate agent will work with you to alleviate stress, too.

Navigating the home selling journey can be difficult, regardless of whether you are an experienced or first-time house seller. Thanks to the aforementioned tips, you can streamline the home selling journey. Perhaps best of all, these tips could make it easy for you to enjoy a fast, profitable home selling experience.

Hello! I'm Cindy Poulsen and I'd love to meet you. Whether you're in the research phase at the beginning of your real estate search or you know exactly what you're looking for, I would love to be an advocate for you and turning your home ownership goals into reality. I'd love to put my real estate experience to work for you!

I decided to get into real estate because I saw and experienced a lack of service, attention to detail and just sub-par business practices. I did not want to pay someone the amount of money I was paying and have that kind of service. I KNEW I could do better and I set out to make a real estate business based on good work ethic, genuine concern for individuals, a high level of service, services like staging, housecleaning and professional photography included at my expense and a continued friendship with my clients. I was not interested in transaction type of relationships, I want to be in for the long haul! So that is what my work ethic and business are built on. In short, I wanted to offer "Nordstrom" type services and be so good at it that you couldn't help but tell your friends and relatives. I have been offering this service and continually honing it since 2008. If you don't believe me, click here and see what a few of my past clients have to say about me. http://www.zillow.com/profile/cindypoulsen/

About me personally: I live in Eagle, Idaho with my husband, Glade and Golden Retriever, Lily. We have 7 children & 14 grandchildren (combined efforts)! I grew up in Glendale, Arizona and lived there until 2006 when we made the move to Idaho. I LOVE Idaho. The outdoor lifestyle, the 4 seasons and the mildness of them, the smell of the river in the air, the amazing, the safe neighborhoods, friendly people and the camaraderie of the community.
