Couple with sold home sign Selling a home is an event that you want to complete as soon as possible. When you have an experienced real estate agent on your side, you can get your home off the market quickly and for the highest possible price. This is particularly helpful if you are looking to sell in an effort to move to a more desirable home or because you have to move elsewhere for work or other reasons.

How Do You Price Your Home?

The biggest question that you have to ask yourself is how much you want for your home. Just as importantly, you have to determine is how much your home may be worth. In a sellers market, you may be able to get more than the home is appraised for because you will get multiple offers from buyers jockeying for the house.

In a buyers market, you may get at or slightly below list price because demand may be limited. To get a good idea as to where you want to initially list your home, you can look at recent home sales and how much they were priced per square foot. You can then alter your price higher or lower based on features your home has or lacks as well as its location.

How Do You Sell Your Home Quickly?

If your goal is to sell your home quickly, there are many things that you can do to meet that goal. One idea may be to price the home slightly below its appraised value to attract an offer as soon as possible after listing.

You may also want to hold open houses and work yourself to market the property. In addition to your own marketing efforts, your agent can take steps to put your listing in front of qualified buyers.

Another option may be to advertise the fact that you are willing to make sellers concessions or keep furniture and appliances in the home. This increases the attractiveness of your home and makes it a better value for the buyer's dollar. Talking to a real estate agent can provide you with a wealth of sellers resources to help you complete the transaction in a timely manner.
