Today's real estate market is a very different scenario from the market of just a few short years ago. Houses are selling faster, banks are approving loans more willingly, time on the market is shorter. Sounds like a wonderful situation for sellers! And it is; but that doesn't mean that there are not some hurdles in selling a piece of property and most of those can be overcome by a savvy listing agent.

Finding qualified buyers - not every buyer has bank financing lined up, good credit, or their down payment money ready to pay. One of the first thing an agent advises a buyer to do is to get pre-approved. Once a buyer has been pre-approved through a lending source, it is clearer what they can qualify for and how much down payment they are prepared to pay.

Getting exposure for your house so that buyers find it - RE/MAX has many ways to help a seller get their home's photos and descriptions in front of buyers. As well as a large nation-wide website that showcases homes, your RealtorĀ® will list your home in the MLS system, provide you with for sale signs, and feature it on their website and social media. This guarantees that buyers who are looking, are finding your house.

Showing your house off to its best potential - Are you worried that your home doesn't have the pizzazz to attract a buyer? Your RE/MAX professional can make staging suggestions or even help you find a professional stager who can come in and dress your house for a whole new look. Perhaps you know your home is 'perfect' but you are afraid a buyer won't have the discernment to recognize that. Your RE/MAX professional can introduce you to a home inspector so that you can provide potential buyers with a home inspection report showing your home is in tip-top condition.

Finally, contract negotiations can be emotionally draining. You want this; they want to pay that. Don't worry. Your agent will work with the other party's agent and everything will get resolved. And, your agent will do his or her best to get you the best possible price. You don't have to do a thing but show up at the closing!
