What is the first thing to do when selling a house?
The first thing to do when selling a house is to collect information and not rush to make important decisions. Why? Because, thanks to seller-friendly home sale innovations, you may have better options than the traditional, expensive way of selling your home with an agent.
Important things to research and consider:
- Does it make sense to list with an agent or list for sale by owner? Are you willing to give a zero commission, low cost home sale platform like OfferMarket a shot?
- What is the state of your local market? How much inventory is there, what have similar homes sold for recently? (see comps)
- What net proceeds are you looking to receive from your sale? After all of your costs and loan payoff, what amount do you think is feasible? How much with a zero commission home sale contribute to your net proceeds?
- How much is is going to cost to sell a house the traditional way with a broker or agent? This includes 5-6% commissions, closing costs, repairs, staging, concessions, etc.
Our mission is to empower everyone to sell their house without agents or commissions. Let us know if you have any questions!
