Selling your home is sometimes as easy or as hard as buying one. There are many factors to consider when you want to get rid of that house and maybe move on to something better. Here are a few simple steps to sell that property. First things first: you need to decide whether you want to go for the “sale by owner” route or lean towards the real estate agent. Usually when the owner wants to sell the house on their own it is a little bit more challenging. The only downfall of going with a real estate agent is that they will normally charge 6% of the sale price for their commission and fees. So, choose what best suits you. Make the house presentable. Have that place spotless, yard mowed and trimmed. You need to put yourself in the buyers shoes….would you buy a house that was filthy on the inside and didn’t look like it was taken care of at all? If you are still living in the house while you are trying to sell it…do the same thing. Trying to sell the house while you are occupying it will be difficult because buyers like to come in and picture their own belongings in there. Be patient. Selling your house overnight is only a thing based on pure luck. Sometimes it could take a few months or maybe even years, it all depends on how good the market is, condition of home , location, and price. I guess nobody was lying when they said patience is a virtue.
