Seller Jitters!

By Sharon Bloudek, November 4, 2019

Selling your home is often a scary prospect, but trust in your Realtor to guide the way, and remember these few tips below. If you’d like some insight on the market, or your home, feel free to call me at 503-701-1000.

Bare Your Soul! Share the truth about your home to the buyers, and your Realtor. Build trust, ensuring quality deals.

Get Ready to Rumble! Plan in case a deal falls through. Preparing for all contingencies can allow you to land softly.

Stay Calm and Carry on! An experienced Realtor can help you navigate the tricky dance of concessions like ‘rent-back’, without scaring off a buyer.

Act Pretty! Get the best price for your home with a staging expert who can dress your home for every buyer.

Success Comes at a Price! Smart pricing strengthens negotiations, and stops your house-sale from gathering dust and perceptions of nonexistent flaws.

Don’t be Left Hanging! Low inventory means multiple offers. Consider asking potential buyers for more possession time, to facilitate moving and replacement of your home.

Let Go! Selling your home brings up a lot of emotions. Find ways to allow yourself to let go…. This could be a new chapter full of awesome possibilities.
