Finding the right method for selling your home can shape the process from start to finish. Here are some essential tips to help you decide the best way to sell your home.

Full Service Realtor

Rowhouse in 516 Nelson Ave Alexandria VA 22301
Del Ray is in Alexandria 22301

Full Service Realtors are still the most common way to find a buyer for your home. Realtors are the ideal solution for the busy homeowner trying to sell their home while accomplishing countless other things. Many house sellers are also uncomfortable dealing with buyers directly.

A good agent can eliminate much of the stress of dealing with potential buyers and much of the paperwork that comes with selling a home. A Realtor will take pictures, hang signs, show the property, advertise the property, coordinate the closing. Realtors are specially trained to handle the intricate details associated with selling your home. There are many aspects of home selling that an average seller might not be aware of or have any idea how to fix.

Problems often arise during the sale of a house that can be very discouraging. Working with a trained professional can help alleviate much of the stress that comes from the uncertainty of not knowing what to do next. But whatever you do, remember, it is always a mistake to hire an agent solely on the basis they gave you the highest valuation for your house.

Limited Service Realtor

A limited service Realtor is sometimes called a discount real estate agent. This is because a limited service Realtor often offers a discount on fees and in exchange they leave some or all of the work to the home owner. For example, you can take your own photos, or put up your own signs.  Nesbitt Realty is somewhat unique in that we offer both a full service option and limited service options so that you can pick and choose some self-service options to save money, or you can have us do all the work to minimize your anxiety.

Self-Service Sale

Many homeowners value having complete control of the process when it comes to selling their own properties. They enjoy having the ability to control every aspect associated with marketing and selling their property, and any other details that affect such a significant investment. This method is very time consuming and thanks to the internet an increasingly popular choice as more people try to find cheaper alternatives to traditional Realtors. For those who do decide to pursue selling their own home, there are many details to consider.

Potential buyers intimidate many private sellers and vice versa. Realtors are specially trained to find out information about a buyer without being direct or offensive. It can be very embarrassing for a seller to have to be so intrusive, but it is important for them to qualify buyers. You can prepare a list of questions in advance. If you’re on good terms with your mortgage broker ask them to help you.

In Conclusion

There is no substitute for hard work.  It’s just a matter of whether you want to do the work or whether you want your Realtor to do the work. Making the right decision about how to sell your home in Del Ray can significantly reduce your stress levels and improve your home selling experience.

Selling a home is difficult. In most cases, it involves you uprooting your life and starting over somewhere else. The stress of a move can be astronomical. It strains your finances and your relationships. Having a definitive plan makes any action easier.

With many possibilities available to the homeowner, it is not difficult to find the best action plan for your needs. In most cases, the right choice can mean the difference between a positive experience and a horrific disaster.

You need to give careful consideration to your timescale, the amount of time you can personally devote to the process and any factors which complicate your sale.
