A home is typically a family's most expensive possession. Yet, when it comes to selling, many folks make a costly mistake by simply hiring the Realtor who is a relative or social acquaintance rather than seeking out the most qualified professional.
Here are some basic tips for a successful home sale:
PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR PICTURES AND SHOWINGS
This is an actual photo of a past listing on the Ulster County MLS. Your chosen agent MUST be insistent on properly preparing your home for sale. A reasonably staged house typically results in a quicker sale at a significantly higher price. Ken provides the basics of home preparation and also utilizes a professional home stager (as seen on HGTV) for special needs.
SELLING WITHOUT AN AGENT
If you are not in a rush, are comfortable screening buyers for security and ability to pay, are available to answer calls and show the property on short notice, know how to prepare your property for sale, have the self confidence to negotiate with buyers expecting below market pricing, know how to get your home listed on dozens of real estate websites, have great photography/videography skills, can write and design content for brochures and can help resolve complications with government backed mortgages---- you may not need a Realtor. For Help, CALL KEN (845) 750-6270.
