By now, you’ve likely heard that now is a great time to sell your home in Anchorage AK. Inventory is on the lower side and seller’s have the ball in their court once again. But how do you know if it’s the right time for you to sell?
You can count on Northern Edge Real Estate to help you decide if now is the best time to list your home, the best price at which to list and how you can set yourself up for a successful sale this year. Below we’ve included four ways to avoid seller’s remorse and make your sales process run as smoothly as possible.
Decide on your pricing strategy
It is always best to defer to your real estate agent when developing your pricing strategy. After all, your agent knows the market, comparable homes in the area and what today’s buyers are willing to pay. Talking price is one of the most important conversations to have with your agent, so don’t be shy about voicing your concerns. And remember, if you still don’t feel right about the price at which you should list your home, it may not be the best time for you to do so.
Get ready to negotiate
Negotiating is a big part of the home selling process and since seller’s have the upper hand in today’s market, you have the ability to negotiate the best terms for you. Your Alaskan real estate agent will always work with your best interests in mind, so if you have questions about how to formulate a great deal with a buyer, know that they have the answers!
Know where you’re going
Buyers in today’s real estate market are motivated and if your home is ready to sell and priced competitively, you may just find yourself entertaining multiple offers. But what happens next? You will need to have a plan in place for where you will go after your home is sold, especially if the buyers would like to close quickly. So be ready for a successful sale— you will thank yourself later!
Don’t act if you’re not ready
The market may be heating up and you may be told time and time again that now is the time to make a move, but if you do not feel financially ready, don’t feel obligated! There is no harm in waiting until you are certain you’re ready to sell, in fact, the last thing you want to do is list your home, only to regret it later.
