Three Steps to Selling a HouseWhat could be so hard about selling the house? Just stick your sign in the yard and wait for buyers to come and look.

You’ll fix things up, maybe repaint in a few places, fix the loose door handles, clean up the yard and you will be ready to go. Create your For Sale sign and stick it in the front yard. Now buyers will drive by and see that your great home is available. If all goes well you should have it sold in just a few months.

Now, the reality check. A sign in your yard will certainly help to sell the house. A good curb appeal and fresh paint are a great idea and will attract buyers. These things are just a very few of the marketing moves that you really need to make. Selling a house on your own may save you some commission, but it is a lot of work. You’ll need to know how to price the house, first of all, by doing neighborhood comps. Once it’s got a good asking price, you’ll need to list it. Write a fantastic description and by all means, be sure you have spelled everything correctly and that you have your grammar straight. Take the best photos ever and leave out all clutter and personal items. Use a good resolution so the pictures are clear and attractive.

Since buyers these days tend to look online for a house before they actually go out and look physically, you will want to list your house online. Pay for an MLS listing so all possible agents and buyers can see what your house looks like and that it is a great buy. Now make posters, flyers, and brochures with a clever description and find places to staple them up and pass them around.

Clean the house as though a buyer is coming to look at the house today. Keep the house in exactly this condition at all times every day until you sell the house. That might be the most difficult, or at least the most annoying, for you and the family. When a buyer calls you’ll need to accommodate them quickly. If you don’t want to show the house and ask them to wait until the next day they most likely have 3 or 4 others to look at right in your neighborhood. You could lose a sale. This means you must be ready at all times, even if buyers only come to see the house once a month. These are the more realistic steps that you’ll take to sell your house.
