When it’s Time to Sell a Property, You want it to Show at its Best
Selling a property successfully requires a good focus on just a few important steps. With your selling requirements in order, you will be ready to enjoy the process of marketing your property to find the property’s next owner. Here are some helpful seller information.
Here are Four Steps to take when you are ready to sell your property:
1. Hire a Real Estate Agent
Studies show that property sellers who use a real estate agent to represent them, usually get a better price than those who have decided to sell their property themselves. Active Realtors stay up-to-date on critical real estate processes and we at the LeAneSUAREZGROUP, Realtors will help to keep your sales experience positive. We will also assist to get your property sold at the best price in the right time frame.
Equally as important, is how real estate agents will add valuable objectivity to what is an inherently, emotional transaction: The sale of your property.
2. Let the LeAneSUAREZGroup Market Your Property

At our direction, your property listing will be promotionally presented to the real estate network that reaches across the US and elsewhere with our exceptional marketing campaign.
3. Before Your Property Is Listed for Sale
It’s important to have your property in good showing condition before buyers start going through it. Here are few recommended steps to consider:
- Touch up interior and exterior paint as needed.
- Make sure the front is clean and spruced up – curb appeal will create a favorable first impression.
- Trim bushes and plants as needed, and make sure the lawn is kept mowed and trimmed.
- Keep the interior clean, clutter and odor-free. Eliminate evidence of pets.
- Minimize personal items like photos. You want buyers to see themselves owning the property.
- Consider putting excess items in storage.
- Consider having a pre-listing inspection performed to address problems in advance. Typically buyers will hire a professional inspector of their own.
- If applicable, consider engaging a professional stager to give your property the right emotional appeal.
4. During the Listing Period
- When potential buyers visit your property, it’s best to be absent.
- If applicable, have fresh flowers in the entryway. It makes for a friendly introduction into your property.
- If offers are presented that don’t match your hoped-for price, don’t reject them offhand. Pay attention to your agent’s advice.
- Within 90 days if there have been no offers, consider adjusting the price. Market conditions, micro-markets can affect this decision however, if you and your agent have priced your home properly from the start, a price drop shouldn’t be necessary.
- Don’t get discouraged. In a buyer’s market, properties may take longer to sell than during boom times.
