Seller's #1 Question

Ultimately, the number one question on every seller's mind is how much can I get for my home?

It is true that Trulia and Zillow use real estate data provided by the Multiple Listing System (MLS) and tax records to compile data; however, there are other factors that must be taken into consideration that Zillow and Trulia simply cannot compile.

Before You List

Carolyn Schofield has prepared a practical checklist which entails tasks that need to be completed or checked prior to listing your home for sale. The list is not a complete set of tasks; however, this "Honey Do List" does include some of the most crucial tasks that need to be addressed. As a seller, the more you do upfront prior to listing your home for sale, the better your chance for success in the long run.

Even if everything is completed on the checklist, there is no guarantee that your home will sell in the first 90 days. There are numerous variables that must be considered and during the listing appointment, these variables will be addressed. The goal in all of this is to make your home the strongest contender relative to its location, age, size, and amenities, etc.

Carolyn Schofield's Analogy: Consider how athletes train for a triathlon - each athlete is human, but the similarities end here. The preparation for the event varies from one athlete to another. Some have taken extra steps to ensure a competitive edge over the competition. Undoubtedly some athletes are physically in better condition than others whether it is due to age, gender, overall health, physical stamina, etc. Nonetheless, in the end, there is only one winner out of all the competitors. The same holds true in real estate.
