Three Tips When Selling Your Home in 2023

Getting ready to sell your home and buy your new home in 2023? Here are 3 Tips to get ready for the Spring 2023 Real Estate Market.

Tip #1: Talk to Your REALTOR®. One of the first things you should do when planning to sell your home is to talk with your REALTOR®. Your REALTOR® should be able to put together a plan for you, create exciting marketing for your home, and help you with finding your next home. Selling and buying a home is a complex process and takes time. Having this conversation early in the process helps you, as a seller, leverage the best sale possible.

Tip #2: Consider a Pre-Listing Inspection. If you’ve owned your home for a long period of time, a pre-listing inspection can help you to put together a priority list before you are ready to put your home on the market. This can give you an advantage when it’s on your own time and your dime, instead of paying top dollar for a repair when you are under a tight contract timeline.

Tip #3: Talk to Your Lender. Your lender can help you to outline what you need to do prior to listing your home for sale, especially if you are selling your home and buying a new home. They can review your entire financial picture and make recommendations on whether or not you should sell your home first, hold on to your current property and rent it out as an investment property, or if other options like a bridge loan are helpful to you as a seller. Your lender can help you to determine a plan, along with your real estate agent, to leverage the best sale possible and help you sell your home for top dollar.
