Selling a house is a process. As a real estate agent in Williamsburg, Virginia, I share my knowledge through blogging. However, various news feeds are imported from other websites such as Redfin, Keeping Current Matters, and Homelight. This will allow you to get a broad overview of what is taking place in the industry. After all, it is not recommended to only seek one source for info. Otherwise, you could be missing some of the critical elements to have a successful home sale.
A vast array of topics is covered, such as home inspections, adding value, market data, etc. To repeat, I don’t consider myself to be all that involved in the real estate industry per se. As Realtors, we’re more like consultants, marketing specialists, and market analysts. Obviously, we’re all still salespersons at the end of the day, but those are the vital factors that sell homes. To sum it all up, there’s a lot more to selling a house than just sticking a sign in the yard and posting an ad online. That is if you would like to get your home sold promptly.

It is vital to understand the home selling process before listing. The last thing you want is to feel like you’re flying blind while hoping for the best. As a Realtor, I’ve put together a condensed step-by-step guide to sell your home.
Did you know 85% of home buyers request a home inspection? I think it’s safe to say, taking this step during the home buying process is extremely important, and that goes for both new construction and older homes. Doing so before taking ownership may save you a grip in the long run.
Going FSBO, otherwise pronounced as “fis-bo,” has pros and cons that are often overlooked. Selling your house is going to be a heck of a lot more work than you think. It also doesn’t help that the internet seems to make some of us believe we can do anything ourselves. Hence, potentially causing your solo effort to end with costly mistakes and deep remorse.
If you’re thinking about selling your home at some point, I’m sure you’ve wondered about the value of your home. While the internet makes us believe we do anything, the traditional methods of finding a property’s real market value are still king.
Websites like Zillow, for example, go by algorithms instead of reality. Emily Heffler, Zillow’s director of communications, reputation management, and chief Zestimate wrangler, stated the following: “It’s a starting point; it’s not an appraisal. It’s a computer, and we haven’t been to your home. We haven’t seen your new kitchen.”
However, the Zestimate error rate in Chicago, Illinois, is surprisingly low at 3.8%. On the other hand, 41.4% of Zestimate’s are not within 5% of the actual sales price. Ouch.
