Selling a Home in Syracuse

Selling a home seems pretty simple in concept. Stick a For Sale sign in the front yard, maybe take out an ad in the newspaper or host an open house, and wait for interested buyers to start calling. Right?

Not quite. There's actually quite a lot that goes into selling a home—and even more if you expect to make a profit on your home and sell it in a reasonable amount of time. Here's what you need to know about selling a home in Syracuse, NY.

Your Home's Price MATTERS

In this day and age, buyers are pretty savvy. It's easy to get information, do comparisons, and determine whether a home is priced correctly. It's even easier when the buyer is working with an agent. The only one you're hurting by pricing your home incorrectly is yourself. Price too high and buyers aren't going to bite. Price too low and you're losing out on money. The key to a truly successful sale is finding that perfect balance.

Price Your Home RIGHT

Your Agent MATTERS

Many home sellers make the mistake of thinking they can save a few dollars on commission fees if they forego the agent and choose to sell For Sale By Owner (FSBO). Many of those sellers eventually become overwhelmed and choose to work with an agent. There's a LOT that goes into selling a home, and most home sellers just don't have the knowledge, the resources, or even the time to make everything come together in a way that's financially successful. That's why most Syracuse home sellers choose to work with an agent.

An expert Syracuse real estate agent has a lot to offer a client. Not only can they help you price your home correctly, make staging or home improvement recommendations, and facilitate home showings, a good agent is also a marketing expert. They'll handle all the advertising of your home—which can include everything from online listings to social media promotion to print ads and flyers. Of course, a good agent will also help you through the process of negotiation and home inspection, insuring that your best interest are always a priority.

Your Knowledge MATTERS

If you're working with an agent, you may think you can just dust off your hands, sit back, and let them do all the work. And while this is somewhat true, if you're working with a good enough agent, it's also in your best interest to be as informed as possible on the process of selling a home. The more knowledge you have, the better you'll understand your agent's advice, recommendations, and suggestions—and perhaps even be able to make a few of your own. The more you know, the better your chance of success.
