5 Steps to Listing your Property for Sale

By Cher Cabula-Mendoza - Thursday, October 11, 2018

One thing that my father taught me is that the better investment is usually real estate property because its value always appreciates as opposed to a car whose value depreciates the moment you drive it out of the showroom. That's the dream right? Save enough to be able to buy property and eventually make good profit.

5 Steps to listing your property for sale

1. Spruce up your home - first, prepare your home for selling. You want to make sure that it will look good if a buyer comes to see it. Aside from making sure that the inside is clean, you also want to get rid of the clutter and depersonalize the property. This is because you want your potential buyers to be able to imagine the space as theirs and that will be more probably when they will not see personal things such as bills or personal photos of you or your family. Aside from the inside, check to see that the outside looks just as inviting and appealing as well.

2. Set a price for your property - of course, you will need to set a price for the property. You need to do your research so that you can set the proper price. While it is any homeowner's wish to get as much profit as they can from the sale of their property, pricing it too high might lessen the chances of selling your home right away. Why not offer a competitive price so that more people would be interested in it. You can ask for the opinion of a professional, like a real estate, who can help you come up with a good estimate of how much your property should sell for.

3. Have pictures of your home taken by a professional - before you get your house listed, you will need to have pictures taken of your property. Don't think that you can just use your own camera or your phone to do so. While that may be good, it is still different when you have it taken by someone who knows what angles and lighting will work so that your home will look its best. There is really a big difference between a picture of your home taken randomly and one taken by a real estate photographer. Don't think of it as just an expense but also an investment that will pay off when you are already able to sell your property.

4. Choose a reputable company for your listing - now that you are ready with the price and the pictures, and your house is ready just in case someone wants to see it right away, it's time to choose where to have your house listed. The important thing is that you choose a company that is reputable and one that you know would be able to help you sell your house. Get Listed Realty is very helpful as they recognize that some homeowners want to sell their houses without real estate agents. For a low flat fee, your property will already be listed on major real estate portals.

5. Choose the best plan for the listing - before you decide on payment, check to see if you have options for the plan you will choose. You want to make sure that you are getting the best value for the money that you will be paying the company after all.
