Sell your Home in the DFW Area

Looking to sell your home in the DFW Area

The Wall Street Journal announced that the housing recovery is officially underway! So what does this mean to you if you are looking to sell your home in the DFW Area?

If you are looking to sell your home in DFW, the recovery means that prices are beginning to rise broadly across the market. With rising prices your home is likely worth more than it was just a few months ago. Housing numbers in DFW also show a considerably lower number of foreclosed homes available in DFW. Buyers are incredibly active and homes that are priced correctly are selling quickly sometimes with multiple offers that are netting sellers above and beyond asking price. This is the recipe for the sellers housing market!

If you are looking to sell your home in the DFW Area the first step to take is to find an aggressive and talented REALTOR. In all real estate markets marketing your home is key, but now a great marketing plan will help you net top dollar. This is the job your REALTOR does, so they better do it well. Make sure that there is a clear plan for marketing and that you will be in the loop every step of the way. Your REALTOR should ask you questions about what your plans are when you sell your home in DFW and how fast do you need to and want to move. Be prepared to discuss the condition of your home and the price you want and the price you realistically need. Condition will affect the offer price and speed at which you receive offers on your home. It is a good idea to make repairs before listing your home as repairing now can be considerably less than the reduction in offer price may be. Remember your REALTOR does not determine the price you sell your home for you do. The REALTORS job is to show you where the market suggests price should be so that you can make an informed decision about listing your home.

Once you find the REALTOR you want to sell your home in the DFW Area, follow up with them and make sure they implement the marketing plan that you have discussed, and most importantly that they follow up both with you and perspective buyers and their agents. Deciding to sell your home in the DFW Area is a great idea right now and offers you the chance to make more money selling than you have had in Years!
