Are You Ready to Sell Your Southwest Waterfront Washington DC Home

 

Is your Southwest Waterfront Washington DC home for sale or are you in the Washington DC area and thinking of selling your home? Testing the market just to see what may happen can sound ideal for a homeowner looking to move, but placing your home for sale too soon can blow up on you in the most terrible way.

 

Before listing your home for sale there are some very intricate details that must be taken into account. Searching for your home estimated value is a good idea to start off with as it gives a price point and can ultimately determine if there is equity. Mostly all home sale is the result of a life altering event: birth of a child, marriage, divorce, death in the family, retirement or the inability to continue with payments thus causing a short sale.

If you can’t answer the question “What’s next after I sell” you should carefully consider if it is time to list your home or not. Currently we are experiencing an extremely hot sellers market whereas many homes that are turn-key and move in ready are lasting on the market for approximately 3 to 30 days. It is completely understandable and highly likely that a person selling their home would not know exactly where they will be relocating to but a general idea is ideal.

Once you list your home, the clock begins and the days on market won’t stop. Today, with access of so much technology and information on the internet, consumers have become extremely knowledgeable. By the time your home is entered into the database, buyers able to learn the good, bad, history and any other data they can find about your home. If you don’t think they’re paying attention to price drops and increases or the days on market, you’re sorely mistaken.  Being on the market too long seems to stigmatize a home and can leave a buyer weary of purchasing your home.

Real estate transactions do not stop, the market is alive, living and breathing. There is no “perfect time” to place your home on the market; so it is perfectly fine to wait until you’re ready. Use the available time to prepare your home to sell, and have a plan to follow. Now is the time to detach yourself from your home. Many sellers are all too caught up in the emotions and are attached. Take these simple things into consideration and ask yourself; Am I ready to sell me home? If the answer is yes, contact a local realtor that can assist you professionally market and sell your home.
