From deciding on the sale price to closing the final deal, the role of your Santa Cruz real estate agent is to make sure every aspect of the sale process goes smoothly. In order to accomplish this goal, you and your property expert need to be on the same page. Below are a few questions to ask your Realtor before putting your home on the market.
Is my home ready to be sold?
Ask your Realtor their professional opinion as to whether your home is ready to be sold in its current condition or if it would be advantageous to make improvements first. In some cases, a simple renovation can ensure that you get a much better sale price on the home.
How much have other comparable homes sold for in my area?
The answer to this question will help you to get a clear picture of what your house is worth and what kind of competition you’re up against. Your Realtor will help you to determine the right price for your home.
Is this the right time to sell?
Your Realtor will have their finger on the pulse of the current market. They will be able to tell you whether this is the right time to sell or if you should wait for the economy to improve.
What is the best method for selling my home?
Your Santa Cruz real estate agent might suggest that you sell your home the traditional way or they might say that your home would be better sold by auction. He or she should be able to outline the advantages and disadvantages of each option.
These are just a few of the important questions you should ask your Santa Cruz real estate agent before they sell your home. An informed professional will be happy to answer all of your questions and provide any clarification you might need.
