Ready to sell your house?

Selling a home is not an easy decision at all. Sometimes we think about selling the house because we need to buy a bigger or smaller house, or we just want to live in a different area, but have you ever wondered if you are really ready to sell your house?

In this guide we share some guidelines for you to identify if you are ready to sell your house.

Before putting your house up for sale

Before placing your house on the market, you must be 100% sure of the step you are going to take. You must prepare yourself emotionally to leave the house, since surely there are many memories that will make it difficult for you to part with it.

If you are still paying part of the house, you should be sure that by selling it you will get a good return and that your debt does not exceed the amount for which you will sell it.

How is the market?

It is important that you analyze the market situation, if it is in favor of the buyer or the seller. A buyer’s market occurs when the supply of properties exceeds the demand, which gives buyers certain advantages over sellers in relation to the purchase-sale price. The opposite case is the seller’s market, where demand exceeds supply and the seller has price advantages over the buyer.

It is also necessary to know the situation of the last houses that have been sold in your community. If you identify that homes are currently high in value but that there is a threat of a financial crisis possibly affecting the value of the home, you will want to sell it before your home is devalued as a result of the crisis. Otherwise, if there is a tendency for its value to increase, you may have to wait for your house to increase in value before putting it up for sale.

To know the market situation, it is good that you work hand in hand with a real estate agent, who can advise you to get the best benefit from the sale of the house.

Do you need advice to sell your home?

Sell one house to buy another?

If you want to sell your house to buy another because you would like to live in another area or because you want a different size, it is essential, before putting your house up for sale, that you make some inquiries about the prices of houses in the area that you want. You would not like to sell your house and then find out that you do not have the money to buy the one you want. You would end up paying rent on a house and spend the profit you got from selling your house.

Your real estate agent could also advise you with these investigations. It would be a good option for you if the same agent that helps you sell your house, also advises you on the purchase of the new property.

When you first buy a home, my wife and I had a lot of questions, fears, anxiety, which is why we spoke to many realtors in Orlando before taking the plunge and we were happy to take that plunge with Alexander and Monica. Their customer service, attitude, and knowledge are unmatched. Thank you for all of your time and advice. You both were a tremendous help!

My wife and I have moved 10 times in the last 30 years due to my work, and obviously we have dealt with many Realtors both for sale and purchase. I must say that Orlando Homes Sales has been by far the best team of real estate agents we have worked with, their professionalism, experience, responsibility, attention to detail was exceptional! Do yourself a favor and buy or sell with them.

After working with Orlando Homes Sales to sell my house, I was convinced that I would always work with them. Since then I have bought 2 properties and sold one, and in each process I have obtained the best results. It really is a pleasure to work with real estate agents who care about the interests of their clients.

Our experience with Orlando Homes Sales could not have been better. We were first time home buyers with very little knowledge of how to find the perfect home. As soon as we met Monica and Alex we realized that they were the right Realtors to buy our house in Orlando.

We couldn't be happier with the way the Orlando Homes Sales team worked with us on our investment in buying a home in Orlando. They are extremely responsive and proactive. We weren't sure what the home buying process would entail or how much work it would take, but with the experience they have, everything went smoothly. We have our house rented for $ 2,100 and we pay $ 1,450 in mortgage.

I recently sold my Hunters Creek home through Orlando Homes Sales, and while this is a very stressful process, I felt 110% confident in going through this process with Monica. He shared a lot of really helpful advice with me, and he negotiated and closed the sale brilliantly.

I live in South America but I always had the dream of investing in a vacation home in Orlando, where I could get a financial benefit and at the same time take my family to the parks every year. I found Orlando Homes Sales through Google and when Monica called me, I realized right away that she was the Realtor I needed to invest in Orlando.

List your house for sale

Once you are ready to part with your house and you have analyzed that it is a good opportune time to sell, it is time to get your house ready without making any major improvements. To sell your house in the shortest possible time, you must organize it in such a way that it is as attractive as possible, but you must do an analysis to modify only the things that will add value to your house. For example, if you build a pool that costs you $ 30,000 and at the time of appraising the house only increases $ 15,000, you would be making improvements and losing money. Each house is different, therefore we could not tell you general aspects on what you should modify or not, just keep in mind that the kitchen and  the bathrooms are one of the crucial points that buyers always analyze when buying a home.

Contact a real estate agent, who can advise you on the adjustments that your home needs to obtain a higher profitability.
