Selling your Bend Oregon Home is an important step towards moving on to your next home but many people don’t know what to expect once they decide to hire a Real Estate agent.
In today’s post we will cover what you can expect when you decide to sell your home:
Step 1 – Getting Your Home Ready For Sale
Before listing your home the first thing a qualified Bend Oregon Realtor will do is recommend things you can do to get your home ready for sale including the following:
- Thoroughly clean your home inside and outside.
- Remove all clutter from the home.
- Stage your home to sell by removing excess furniture.
Once the home is cleaned, clutter is removed, and it’s staged, your Real Estate agent will then inspect your home and make recommendations for changes and or improvements you can do to avoid having to sell your home for less money than it’s worth.
Making small repairs or improvements to your home now will help you to avoid having to accept less money from buyers if there’s work which needs to be done before they can move in.
Step 2 – Listing Your Bend Oregon Home
After you’ve taken the advice of your Bend Oregon Real Estate Agent the next step will be for your Realtor to list your home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
Besides listing your Bend Oregon town home, condo or single family home on the MLS your Realtor will also market your home online on websites like Trulia, Zillow, Activerain and their own personal Real Estate website.
Step 3 – Day To Day Responsibilities
Now that your home is listed the final thing to do is sit back, wait and deal with the day-to-day responsibilities of selling a home.
Some of this things which you can expect day to day include having a lock box placed on your front door, sign in your front yard, leaving when it’s time for an open house, and being ready to schedule times for your Realtor to show your home.
It could take up to 120 days to sell your Bend Oregon Home depending on the demand for homes at the time you decide to sell it but the hard work will be worth it once you sell and are able to move onto your next home.
