Selling your Dallas home isn’t just selling your home. It’s protecting and capitalizing on your most important investment and maximizing your profit, while trying to make the process as stress-free as possible. Before you start selling, here are a few tips to keep in mind when you’re selling your Dallas home. BEFORE SELLING: Do Your Research: During this phase it’s important to consult with your real estate agent. You want to make sure that you talk to your neighborhood expert so that they can give you a rundown of the properties in your area that you’ll be competing with. We can also give you a projection of where your home should be listed and at what price you can most likely sell it for. These numbers vary with each different home, which is why relying on a real estate agent’s expertise can be helpful in guiding you along the right path. Keep Your Reason to Sell To Yourself: When you’re ready to sell, don’t be tempted to talk about the reasons why you’re choosing to sell. Too much information in this case is not a good thing. In fact, in many cases it can provide ammunition to your prospective buyer. Whether you can’t afford the mortgage or because you need to move quickly, these reasons should be kept to yourself. WHILE SELLING: Think about it from your buyer’s perspective: When your buyer considers your purchasing your home, it’s important for themselves to truly see their family in the house. If they feel that they’re intruding upon your house, they won’t be able to visualize themselves in your house and that can affect a prospective buyer’s purchasing decision. Make sure the house is kept tidy and that any personal knick-knacks are stowed away for safekeeping. Keep the house uncluttered to increase the attractiveness of your home (and don’t forget: home decorating magazines always have great, budget-friendly tips!) DURING SELLING: Watch Your Emotions During Selling: It’s likely that your emotions will get in the way during the selling process. Your home will be more valuable to you because you’ve enjoyed so many memories in it. It’s important to let go of your emotions and approach selling the house from a business perspective in your negotiations. By having a clear vision of the situation, without the cloud of emotions, you’ll be able to clearly communicate with buyers in an effort to make the most of the investment in selling your house. Each phase of your home buying process comes with it’s own difficulties and challenges and being adequately prepared to face them is one of the most important aspects of selling your home.
