Although we are smack in the middle of holiday season, now can be the perfect time to start planning for selling your home in 2017. This is the case, even if you have not yet fully decided whether or not you’re going to move.
For example, just as in any other major endeavor, one of the first steps in the process is to set your goals. Here, you will nail down what you hope to accomplish with the sale of your property, such as to downsize, expand, or simply go to a different location. By having these goals in writing, they can essentially become more real. And this can allow you to more easily move forward.
Planning now can also mean that you will have some time to repair or replace any items that may hinder a potential sale – and, if you plan to paint, de-clutter, and / or stage your current abode, getting a head start now can allow you to start showing the property to potential purchasers more quickly.
It’s been said that success comes to those who are well prepared. This isn’t likely a coincidence. So, even if you are still on the fence about whether or not you really want to move, doing some advance planning can mean that you are that much more ready if the time should come.
It can also be essential to work with an experienced realtor. In doing so, you can get a good idea of the current value of your home, and figures on what similar homes in the area have sold for recently. This, in turn, can help you to set a realistic price in order to attract the right buyers.
