Selling your Bend Oregon home will definitely be a life-changing experience because, you will be making a decision that positively effect your life but for many homeowners who haven’t bought or sold a home in years, working with a Realtor can be a little unsettling at first because, they don’t know what to expect during the process of selling their home.
In this post were going to cover the top things that you can expect when working with a Bend Oregon Real Estate Agent, or Listing Agent in the part of the country that you live in, so that you can be better prepared for the process of selling your home.
One of the first things that your Real Estate Agent will do when you hire them to sell your home is call you to set up appointments once they have prospective homebuyers who are interested in viewing your home.
When you’re on the phone with the realtor they will also want to know if there are any special instructions for your home for example:
Do you have pets in the garage that they will need to be aware of?
Will there be somebody in your home when they are showing your home to prospective homebuyer?
Does your home have an alarm system that they will need to deactivate in order to enter your home?
Getting Ready To Leave
On the day of the showing, the biggest thing that you need to be prepared to do is leave all the lights on in the rooms of your home and go somewhere for an hour or more. Many homeowners have a difficult time leaving the lights on their home with the realization that somebody else will be in their home while they’re gone but, it’s important to remember that the person who will be there is your realtor who will be working hard to sell your home to the right buyer.
Remove Your Valuables
Before your first open house, it’s important for you to make sure that all the valuables are removed from your home because, you should always take extra precaution to protect your valuables and it’s also important to stage your home for sale by removing excess items in your home like antiques, collectibles, art and furniture since doing this will only help the rooms in your home to look bigger.
