How To Sell Your Home

The decision to sell your home is an important one and not to be entered into lightly. Many homeowners have trouble deciding whether or not they want to sell their home.

If you are a homeowner who is at the point where you feel like selling your home is the right decision, there are three important next steps you should take to get the process rolling.

1. Talk to a Professional – 

This is where our team at Big Block Realty comes in. If you or someone you know is thinking about selling your house, the first step is to get a real estate agent involved.

A real estate professional, like a member of our team here at Big Block Realty, can advise you through the selling process. A real estate agent will also serve as your advocate and help you avoid costly mistakes.

Always choose an agent you trust with the knowledge and expertise to get the job done!

2. Set up a Walk Through –

Now that you’ve chosen a real estate agent, it’s time for you to have a walk through of your home or property. During the walk through, your agent can advise you on any possible repairs or improvements that need to be done.

This is also a time when you can ask questions about how to stage your home in a way that will attract potential buyers.

3. Set the Price –

How a home is priced is very important. You must set the right selling price in order to attract the right buyers. An agent can help you set the price and make sure you have realistic expectations about it.

The process of selling a home or property has many elements, and these are just the first three steps to take.

To learn more about how to sell your house or to find your next dream home, contact us at Big Block Realty!

Why Hire A Realtor?

So why do you want to hire a Realtor® when buying a house anyway?

Well…

There are many advantages of hiring a Realtor® to represent you as the home buyer.  By working with your own personal Realtor your best interest is always being looked after.

Signing a Buyer Broker Agreement (the agreement used to hire a Realtor®) guarantees the highest form of consumer protection available to a real estate buyer.  By signing the buyer broker agreement, you are essentially hiring the elected buyer’s agent to represent you and your best interest during the transaction.

It’s important to work with a personal buyer’s broker (Realtor®) because…

Satisfied Customers Realtors–> As your buyer agent, we have a fiduciary duty to help you the home buyer locate the best home for your needs and to negotiate the best deal possible. With a Realtor on your side, buyers are assured of the greatest range of choices – the entire market.

–> As your buyer’s agent, we will provide you with Value, Sales Statistics, Local Market & Neighborhood Conditions and evident physical defects.

–> We will also provide you with the facts on the neighborhood specifics and appreciation/depreciation values.

–> Your buyer’s agent will also assist you in arranging financing with a Mortgage Lender (if necessary).

On this site you will find a wide variety of useful information to help you buy or sell a home in San Diego. From information on the local community, to advice about finding a mortgage or preparing your home to sell, it’s all available here on our site.

You can also search for a San Diego home for sale by viewing current listings with detailed descriptions and photos here –> www.FreeSDHomeSearch.com .
