Listing Your Home and Competing for Buyer
|Posted by Joe B. Nester on March 30, 2015 at 6:35 AM|
Listing a home and placing it on the market is a multiple step process that a real estate agent performs with the help of the seller. One of the most important aspects of selling a home is setting the asking price. There are a lot of factors that can affect the fair market value of a home and having a experienced agent guide you through this step will dramatically increase your chance for a sale.
The nuts and bolts of the listing agreement consists of an accurate inventory of everything in and around your property that is going to convey to the purchaser. This inventory will be categorized within the Multiple Listing Service and will give all member agents a snapshot of size, number of bedrooms, number of baths and all the other features your home has to offer. This information is used as agents research properties for their buyer clients.
Once the price has been determined and the property is listed, it is time to show it off. This is where creativity, quality images, virtual tours, video and great descriptions can be produced to make your property a stand-out among the competition. A buyer searching on the internet today can look at dozens of properties within minutes so your property will need good internet visibility and look its best to get noticed.
The instructions for agents to show your property are also determined by the seller and that information is placed in a secure data base that only agents have access to. As a seller you will want to make the showing process as simple as possible. Too many restrictions will limit your number of showings and reduce your chance for a sale.
Keeping a home in show condition can be a challenge while living there but it can pay-off. If an agent is in your neighborhood showing other properties and the buyer wants to see yours at the last minute it will create another opportunity for a sale if it can be shown.
