Now that you have determined it is a good idea to put your house on the market, or have decided to buy a new home, what should you do before you even call your realtor? Smart home sellers make their realtors’ jobs easier so their realtor can focus on finding a buyer who will pay the full asking price for the home. What can you do to make the job easier? You can do many things, like cleaning the inside of the house and taking care of the yard.

As a buyer or seller, there are several things you can do to be better prepared when you contact your realtor, such as The Jana Caudill Team in Crown Point. It is in your best interest to be as prepared as you can be when you go to sell your home or purchase a new one.
Here are the top three items a seller should before you call the realtor:
Home Values — Find out the home values in your neighborhood. Remember if you and your agent agree on the value of your home, a sale will happen quickly. As you research, you will find a realistic price point for your home.
Mortgage and Liens — Know the amount left on your mortgage that needs to be paid. This information is another tool that you and your realtor can use to determine the optimal price for your home. If you have a lien on your home tell your realtor up front. It is not the end of the world if you do have a lien, and this type of information is best dealt with upfront.
Clean up and Share any Upgrades — Clean your house from ceiling to floor, so it presents well to potential buyers. If you recently put on a new roof or installed a new furnace tell your realtor, these are selling points and things that can be mentioned on the listing to attract attention.
No house will be perfect and you will find a defect. The defect can be brought to the seller’s attention and you may get the price of the home reduced. You just want to make sure that most items in the house are running well. A good foundation is key.
