Guide to Selling a Home in Connecticut

November 16th, 2015 | Higgins Group Real Estate

Selling a home is a huge decision, and it can definitely be challenging, especially if you’re a first-time seller. By planning ahead and getting yourself familiarized with the process, you get information that allows you to create a solid strategy, making you better-prepared to deal with anything that comes your way.

If you’re considering selling your home in Connecticut, here are a few tips that can help you out:

Plan ahead

SoldBefore you actually start selling your home, don’t forget to plan ahead – you need to think about your own purchase. You need to consider where you’re about to relocate to, and what budget you’ll be working with. Use this time to get pre-approval for a mortgage, so get a good idea of your current financial capability.

Make your home move-in ready

Majority of buyers want a home that’s move-in ready, so prepare to make a few changes. Replace old or damaged tiles, repair faulty plumbing, and give your home a few aesthetic upgrades. Less issues means better chances of successfully closing a deal.

Hire a real estate professional

Working with a professional realtor who’s familiar with the area as well as the entire selling process is a huge advantage when selling your home. With a professional at your side, you’ll have someone representing your best interests during negotiations, and will help you deal with legal issues and paperwork.

Price your home realistically

An overpriced home will alienate a lot of buyers. Consult your agent and look at similar properties in the area to get an idea of a good price range for your home.

Take your time when reviewing offer

The process of selling a home can take several months – be prepared to go through a lot of back-and-forth negotiations during this period. Keep in mind that no one’s rushing you. When faced with a difficult decision, it helps to take a step back, consult your agent, and take a bit of time to come up with a smart decision.
