Selling Your Home #1: Research The Market

Selling your home can be a challenge and requires some research on your end prior to start the process. It is important to do your homework on what’s going on with the real estate market in your neighborhood. Always remember, knowledge is power, however we have so much information out there in the internet that it’s difficult to understand it. There are many tools available that you can use to get a sense of the market activity.

For example, you can use property listing sites, like realtor.com, or you can look at your county’s website and public records to find information on sales that happened outside the MLS that can have an impact in your final price. Look how many homes are for sale in your neighborhood, how long they are staying on the market before being sold, and how others are pricing their homes. Visiting open houses can give you a good idea of the condition of your home compared to others, which helps you to determine your price range. You can use our MAP SEARCH and get accurate information on current active properties and sold homes in your location.
