FAQ for Home Sellers
Whether you’re moving or your family’s situation has changed, we’re sure you have questions about selling your home. Your Dream Home Partner, Christopher Evans, is happy to answer some of the most frequently asked questions related to home selling.
What Is the Best Time to Sell?
The ideal time to sell your property is when there are more buyers than houses available. There are many factors that contribute to this — the warm seasons, a good economy with a positive outlook, and low interest rates are just a few.
The good news is that Columbus, Ohio, is a hot market, with properties selling quickly.
Do I Really Need to Hire a Real Estate Agent?
While most states do not require you to have a realtor to sell your home, it’s a good idea if you want to get the best deal on the sale of your property. Selling a house can be a long and exhausting process, and the realtor handles many of the tasks — like paperwork — that may feel like a second job if you were to do it yourself.
How Do I Prepare My Home For Selling?
Get a home inspection. When you purchase a home, a home inspector will go through the building and make sure everything works properly and point out areas of concern for the future. It’s a good idea to have this done as a seller too, so you can address any issues in the disclosure or shore up any problem areas that might end a sale.
Additionally, by staging your house, you’ll be able to show prospective buyers what it’s like to live there. Homes that are staged tend to sell faster — and some for more money — than non-staged ones, so taking the time to choose neutral paint colors and removing family photos can be the difference your home needs to sell.
How Much Is My Home Worth?
By comparing your home to similar ones in the area, you’ll get a fair market value of your current home. There are a number of other factors to consider as well, such as the size, neighborhood, and lot. Other aspects to consider are if you’ve recently done some remodeling on the interior, added a large patio space out back or had significant repairs done. Christopher Evans will work with you to ensure you get the best value for your home.
