Steps to Take Before You List
If you are planning on listing your St George real estate in the near future, make sure you take the proper steps to ensure it shows well and gets listed for the right price. Our staging tips can help but before you even begin that process make sure you are prepared to get out of it what you need.
For an idea of what your home may be worth, you can fill out our home value form or simply search for homes in your area that are similar. This can be somewhat deceptive right now because what people list for is usually not what they sell for expecially in this market. Its a better idea to get a list of SOLDS from our team to get a better idea of what type of price is actually selling.
But for starters, take a look at what some homes with the same square footage, bedroom and bathroom quantities and lot size as your own and see where the range is. If you have something the other don't, you maybe able to add a little, if they have something you don't, you can deduct slightly. The worst thing to do would be to price it higher than everything comparable. You not only will not get offers but you won't get showings as well.
Consider too how much you need out of the home. Remember, selling a home doesn't just involve the cost of the home. There are realtor's fees, taxes and closing costs. These along can range quite high so make sure you can cover those in your price. Get an idea of how much you need out of the home and how much you want. You will need to pay off any existing loans or liens on the home first, closing costs to the lenders, banks, escrow and county and any realtors fees. These last fees are negotiable so make sure you talk with us before putting all your eggs in one basket.
Once you have an idea of what you need from the home, ask yourself if your home is worth what you need out of it. Does it need repairs to really compare to whats down the street for sale for the same price? If you come in lower priced, better amenties and more well designed than your competitor, you will get a sale.
