Most people have a long list of questions when buying a home. What are the first steps in the home buying process, how much can I afford, what features are most important to me, etc. This is no different for home sellers. For those first-time homebuyers, they eventually become first-time sellers when they are ready to look for a new home. Here are some frequently asked questions from home sellers along with a few answers.
How Much Should I Sell My Home For?
This is one of the most important questions home sellers ask and for good reason. You don’t want to list your home for too little and end up not making as much as you could have if you had known the proper price to list at. On the other hand, you don’t want your home to sit on the market forever because you think your home is worth way more than it actually is.

How to Increase the Value of My Home?
When selling our homes, we want to get as much as we can out of the sale. After all, you made a big investment when you bought it so getting a good return on that investment would be ideal! There are a few ways you can increase the value of your home without breaking the bank. Doing little things like painting your walls, upgrading the handles on cabinets, staining or painting cabinets, etc. If you are interested in other ways to improve your home, hop over to our blog Top Ten Home Improvement Projects for ROI.
How Long Does It Take to Sell a Home?
This question is a little difficult to answer. The real answer is, it depends. Many different factors determine how fast a home sells such as inventory, the economy, if it’s a buyer’s market or a seller’s market, if your home is priced properly, etc. There is no definitive answer. Some statistics give us a better idea of how the market is looking and how fast homes are selling on average.
