1. Hire me, Lisa Giller, Realtor® as your seller's agent. Why? Read on...
The experience and knowledge of a dedicated real estate professional can be priceless. I take pride in forming a powerful team with my clients that makes it possible for them to have a smooth, successful, stress-free sale.
2. Determine your needs/wants for the sale and for your new home in Greater Hartford CT.
Selling your primary residence can be tricky because you have to simultaneously be thinking about where you would like to buy. First weigh your priorities – selling price is certainly important, but having a quick and efficient sale can often be worth accepting a slightly lower offer. Talk to your agent and make sure you’re comfortable with where your priorities are.
At the same time, you should be compiling a needs/wants list for the home you will buy. You will probably have to act fairly quickly when your house sells, so any amount of preparation you can do will serve you well.
3. Prepare your house for showing.
Underprepared homes can be sales disasters. Your home will never get as much attention from potential buyers as when it is first listed, so clearing clutter, cleaning, making repairs, and putting your home’s best foot forward is essential. Don’t “open for business” until your home is ready to be seen as favorably as possible.
4. Find out what your local market looks like.
The key to a smooth sale is being realistic about your neighborhood, whether it's Rocky Hill real estate, Windsor real estate, Cromwell real estate, Windsor Locks real estate, East Windsor real estate market or elsewhere. There is no substitute for my professional real estate representation when it comes to local market knowledge.
5. List away!
Lots of photos including a virtual tour and online exposure are the key to getting a good response for your listing. I use software and the syndication of my listings along with my website to achieve maximum exposure. Now just “open” the house and sit back and wait for the flood of eager home buyers!
