Selling your home is an exciting time. It can also be a bit intimidating. How do you make your house stand out from the competition? How do you juggle selling price alongside taxes and the new home you plan to move into?

Here are some tips Lynsie recommends:

  • Consider your ideal time to move

When do you want to be moving on to your next adventure? Knowing the average days on market and prep time before going on the market will help to work the calendar backward to find the ideal time to begin marketing your home.

  • Know the current market conditions

You need to be aware of average days on market, the ratio or list price vs. sales price, then number of homes on the market, then number of homes pending, and more.  These market stats will help as you determine a future list price for your home.

  • Consult your CPA regarding taxes

Are you aware of any tax implications you may incur by selling your home? Have you factored in capital gains? Are you fully utilizing all of your possible tax write-offs? Include your tax advisor to make the most of your proceeds.

  • Select an incredible team to represent you

Be confident in the strategy, marketing plan and negotiating power of your realtor.  There are many details to be managed during the listing and selling of your home and every detail should be treated with the utmost care - from photography to disclosure documents.
