Real Estate Matters 12.15.2020
PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) -Selling your home can be surprisingly time-consuming and emotionally challenging, especially if you’ve never done it before. But as Shawn Cunningham reports in this week’s Real Estate Matters, a local realtor offers some insight to make the process a bit easier.
Buying or selling a home can either be a smooth ride...or a destination over the cliff without the proper guidance to avoid any unexpected pitfalls.
Stephanie Fields Realtor, Fields Realty LLC.
“selling your home can be a surprisingly time consuming and emotional challenge especially if you’ve never done it before at times you might feel like its an invasion of your privacy because strangers are coming into your home opening your closets...keeping your emotions in check and staying focused on the business aspect of selling the home its easier if you keep it a business aspect.”
Shawn Cunningham NO STANDUP
Next she talks about the pros of having a real estate agent on board...
“a real estate agent will have your best interest at heart they will help you set a fair and competitive selling price for your home increasing your odds for a quick sale and they can help reduce the tire kickers who only want to look at the property and have no intentions of even making an offer.”
Next she talks about setting a realistic price for the property...
“the buyers are going to do the same that you did when you bought the home so as a seller you wanna be one step ahead of the buyer and you wanna know what your home is worth you may think its worth more but remember to set a realistic price..”
And try to...
“negotiate and if you want to complete the sale you may have to play ball and most people want to list their home and set a price that will attract buyers but at the same time leaving room to negotiate.”
And finally use that smartphone or camera for a specific purpose...take lots of pictures...
“you don’t want to do yourself a disservice and have darkers photos or not as many photos its a real service if you have good visuals of your home good photos have a crisp and clear look taken during the daylight when there’s plenty of natural light and this will help showcase your home. its your best asset.”
Your best asset to get your home sold and you onto your next destination. Shawn Cunningham, NS 8.
