Top tips for selling your house

On Behalf of | Mar 2, 2023 | Real Estate

When you’re looking into selling your home in Rhode Island, there are a few tips that you should consider. Residential real estate has fluctuated rapidly over the last few years, and there are a number of reasons that you should ensure that you’re in the know about how to sell your house in a smart way.

Top tips to help sell your house

Residential real estate has fluctuated drastically, and selling your house is becoming more difficult, so it’s more important now to incorporate some home-selling best practices.

  • Get a qualified agent: The right agent can help you make smart decisions so that you get maximum sale value and sell in a short amount of time.
  • Clean and repair: When you sell your house, you need to have it up to a standard that people in your area expect. Make sure the house is clean and in good repair.
  • Staging: Make sure that you do proper staging, including removing personal items. Family photos can distract buyers and make the house feel like they’re in someone else’s house rather than they’re new home.
  • Make smart pricing decisions: Pricing your house competitively is more important than in recent years as the market is turning away from a seller’s market.

Get a real estate disclosure agreement

Getting your house ready to sell is important, but there are sometimes defects that you can’t fix. A real estate disclosure agreement is important when you as the seller want to ensure that the buyer doesn’t come back later and say that you didn’t disclose that there was something wrong with the house or property.

If you’re ready to sell your house, you should have a plan so that you can get maximum value for your home and so that you avoid any of the potential legal consequences of being unprepared.
