How to Sell Your Home from Another State

The home selling process is difficult as it is, but when you are in selling from out of state, it can make the job even more complicated. If you had to move because of your job or are working at selling the home of one of your relatives, there are steps you should follow to make sure you are able to sell the home fast and at the price you want. Homes that are not being lived in tend to have extra maintenance costs, meaning the faster the home is sold the less additional costs that will need to be paid. Here are four tips:

  1. Hire a good realtor. With you being out of state, you need a realtor who is trustworthy and qualified to be able to handle the sale without you being present. They will need to be responsible for putting the home on the market, showing it, making sure that it does not have any problems over time, and potentially hiring someone to fix any problems that do arise. With the extra responsibility you are handing over to the realtor, make sure you interview to find the right one.
  2. Determine the price. As you are trying to sell the home quickly, you will not have time to test the market with a high price, then deduct as necessary. The price you first list your home at will reap the greatest reward. A real estate agent should be able to provide you information on the current market. Ask them for predictions of how long it will take for the home to sell at different prices. If there is more than one person involved in trying to sell the home, make sure to discuss the highest and lowest price each of you are wiling to sell the home for.
  3. Remove all clutter. Buyers are looking for homes that look ready to be moved into. If you still have belongings in that home, sell them or take them with you. If you are cleaning out the home of a family member, make sure to keep important documents and treasured possessions. Then consider having the rest of the belongings auctioned off, hiring a professional cleaner to get rid of the rest.
  4. Stage the home. People who list their home at the right price and have the home staged are going to sell faster than those who do not. With your possessions or the belongings of your family member removed, the house is in an ideal position to be staged. Hire a professional to make the home ideal for the majority of home buyers.

Following these steps are going to help you sell your home from another state. Do not let the fact that you are out of state wear you down. The process can be just as easy when you do it right!
