Do you know what you need to know when selling your home? You may know some of it – but SellForSure.com contains information on literally every aspect of the home selling process.
Every homeowner needs to know certain information when selling their house. First, how much is your home worth in the present market? It’s crucial to have a realistic understanding of your home’s present market price before you do anything else, as knowing this will set the direction of every step you take after that.
Once the current market price is known, the next question is, what cost-effective things can be done to increase that price? You see, it might be that just a few changes to your home may increase the bottom line when you sell. Depending on your home, it’s not unreasonable to expect you could enhance it’s resale price by 5 or 10% in the eyes of buyers with some smart tweaks and improvements.

The cost of selling a home is another important factor. How much will the whole process really cost? Or, looking at it another way, how much will you walk away with after the sale closes?
Another common question is, should you try to sell the home yourself and save the commission, or should you use a real estate agent? What are the advantages and disadvantages to both? What are the pitfalls you should watch out for with either approach?
Many homeowners have plans to upsize or downsize – that is, they want to sell their home, and then buy another bigger, or smaller, home at the same time – ideally without having to move twice, first into a temporary rental, and then later into another home they buy. This approach is far from ideal, as it involves additional hassle and cost – so what are the strategies you can use to avoid that, while at the same time not running the risk of paying two mortgages?
Many homeowners have heard varying advice about when to put their home on the market. What’s the best time of year to sell your home? Are spring and summer really the best times, or is there a real disadvantage if you put your home up for sale in the fall or winter? What if you need to sell immediately?
Buying and selling homes today is a different beast than it was 20. 15. or even 10 years ago. What strategies, techniques, and systems work best to get a home sold today in the 21st Century? What do you need to do to set yourself apart from the competition?
Legal issues surrounding the home buying and selling process are in constant flux. How can you keep up with them? What kind of paperwork will you need to fill out to make sure that all your legal obligations as a seller are met and to protect you from liability and lawsuits? What other pitfalls do you need to avoid?
Many homeowners are selling their home for the first time and aren’t sure what to expect during the sales process. What do you need to know to make everything happen as quickly and smoothly as possible? What are some of the mistakes that homeowners make when selling their homes, and how can you avoid them?
