4 Things to Do When Selling Your Home

Agri-Metro Realty is ready to help you sell your home.  We are your local realtors with wide reaching exposure.  We know why people want to move to your community because we live and work here too. Here are 4 things to that you should now about when you want to sell your home.

1.  Choose a Realtor

Be sure to choose a realtor who will not only put you first but also grant your home the most exposure possible.  Agri-Metro Realty LLC’s goal is to treat each customer as we would a life long friend.  We are members of the Western Iowa MLS.  So all of our listings are submitted to realtors across the country to help search for buyers.  Your home will appear on our website as well as www.westeriowamls.com, www.realtor.com, zillow.com & www.seeiowahomes.com .  This digital age is changing the way people look for a new home.  Many people like to do their homework online first before physically looking at the homes.  With this wide visibility we believe we offer the greatest exposure for prospective sellers in our area.  Our new digital kiosk in our store window is another traffic stopper.

2.  Price it Right

Agri-Metro Realty will provide you with a competitive market analysis when you list your home.  This will show you what homes around you have sold for and will help us reach a good price for your home.  Overpricing your home will keep your home on the market longer and cause the interest to go stale.  A home on the market for months or years begs the question “what is wrong with that house?”.  Let Agri-Metro help you reach a fair and profitable price for your home.

3.  Gather Information

Gather information for the Realtor who will be selling your home: Your deed, warranties on appliances, mortgage payment book, tax bills, assessments – all documents related to your home.

4.  Get your Home Ready

First impressions are important.  Make sure your home is ready.  Complete minor repair projects such as leaky faucets, torn wallpaper, smudges on walls, & squeaky doors.  Remove any clutter from your house and turn on plenty of lights. Stage your furniture in a way that is clean and makes the rooms feel as big as possible as well as creating a functional living space. Finally, spray some deodorizer to hide any unwanted odors to give your guests a great first impression!
