You see many people when they decide to sell a house themselves they forget the steps that are necessary to sell something. The game plan will help you review all the steps and make sure that you have a plan for each. When putting together a game plan ask yourself these questions to get you started.
1. What type of media will I use to market selling my house?
You will definitely need some media to give your house some exposure, there are plenty of options… the shopper, Craigslist, signage in front of the house, classified ad’s in a major metro paper, fliers in the area, etc. Just to name a few of the things you can do. Also don’t forget to take into account your budget for these items.
2. How will I show my house to interested people?
You must figure out how will you show the house. Will you hold one open house and let everyone interested come at that time, or show the house to people individually as they call you.
3. What price should I try to sell my house at?
Many people when considering a price they don’t put much effort into it. They figure out how much they owe on the property and how much money they would like for themselves and set the price there. You should take much more consideration when trying to sell a house. Call a local Realtor and ask them to do a property comparable analysis on your home. This will allow you to see what other similar houses are selling for in the area. This will give you a much more realistic picture of what you can expect for your house.These are just some of the thing that you need to consider when selling your house.
