Selling your home is a big financial and emotional task, which requires lots of planning. So before you decide to put your home on the market, here are four questions to consider.
What is my home worth?
Several factors go into determining your home’s market value, especially in SoCal. These include the condition of the property, square footage, view, location, neighborhood amenities, as well as recent comparable property sales. For a snapshot of your home’s current value,

How can I sell at the highest price possible?
There are several simple, low-cost things you can do to boost the value of your home. These include eliminating clutter, washing windows and walls, and installing higher wattage bulbs to create a brighter environment. Staging your home, which helps paint a picture for how buyers will use their new space, can also add value.
How long will my home be on the market?
The time your home spends on the market depends on several factors, including location, how competitively your home is priced, and how aggressively your home is marketed. Statistics show that if a home is properly priced, an offer should come in within the first 12 showings. If you want to speed up the sales process, don’t underestimate the value of staging. Research shows that well-staged homes can sell up to 32 percent faster than homes that aren’t staged. If you want the current average for days on market, give us a shout!
