If you are not already, become familiar with such facts about your property as property taxes, lot size, square footage and average monthly utility costs. Ensure you have a current “Real Property Report”.
Look at it from the perspective of both the prospective buyer and the inspector. Take notes on all items that need to be repaired or replaced. Never cover up any latent defects. Things to consider include:
Set up interviews, get referrals from friends and family. Have the Real Estate Professional provide a comparable market analysis and listing presentation. Make sure you feel comfortable with the Real Estate Professional, see what they oﬀer for services and how will they market your home.
Unless you have already built or bought a new residence, you’ll need to be the “buyer” for a new property while simultaneously being the “seller” for your current one. If possible, schedule both transactions to close at the same time, or else close your purchase shortly before closing your sale. You need to be moved out before the new owners take possession.
