As your Colorado Springs Real Estate Agent, I can guide you through the process of selling your home. Many sellers in Colorado Springs who can no longer afford their home do have alternative options to foreclosure. Some sellers choose to list their home as a Short Sale in order to avoid foreclosure. Gain tax and legal counsel to weigh out the pros and cons of short selling your home.
Pricing your home is dependent upon many factors such as the market in your area, how quickly you need to move, and the location and condition of the property. Remodels such as finishing your basement may also increase the value of your home. If you have done extensive remodels you may want to have your home appraised to get a better idea of your home’s value. Your REALTOR® can also prepare a Comparative Market Analysis so you can find out what other comparable homes have sold for in your area.
Before your home goes on the market, prepare your home for showings by putting extra items in storage, taking care of repairs, and making sure your home is clean and appealing to potential buyers (more selling tips). Take a look at the Seller’s FAQ for commonly asked questions. Selling your home in the current Market is more likely if it is priced correctly and presentable to buyers.
When you choose someone to assist you in the sale of your home, it is important to verify that he or she is a REALTOR® . You can verify an agent’s license status by completing a license search. A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to the Code of Ethics. When a REALTOR® represents you, it is important that he or she is honest with everyone involved in the transaction and keeps you informed during the entire selling process.
