Seller Frequently Asked Questions

Selling a home involves a lot of decisions and questions. We’ve come up with some of the most frequently asked questions we hear from experienced as well as first-time home sellers.

How do I sell my house?

The process may vary from seller to seller and it’s important that we get to know you first before we start on the selling process. Selling a house can be challenging at times, so we set up a seller consultation to better understand your situation & needs. This will help us prepare a game plan to win over buyers and sell it for the most money – without losing your cool.

How much is my house worth?

Asking yourself this question is a good starting point. The exact price of your own home will depend on its size, neighborhood, and lots of other factors. Our team creates a detailed comparative market analysis, or “comps”. We look at the special features of your home with comparable properties around your area we can give you an accurate value of what your house is worth.

How accurate are Zillow “Zestimates?”

We’ve all checked Zillow to look at our house’s “zestimate” but in reality they may be widely inaccurate. Sometimes it may be close to a good sales price, but the algorithm does not factor in specific comps, acquiring data from large areas leading to misleading home prices. So if you see something on Zillow, please make sure to verify it with us. The most accurate information will always come from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), which we are members of.

How long will it take to sell my house?

The average time to sell a house will vary depending on where you live. If you live in a neighborhood that’s in high demand, your home will likely sell very quickly. Pricing your house competitively is the best way to get the most exposure on your property. More eyes to get more potential buyers. The current average in the Philadelphia Area is 40 days. Some houses may sell in just a few days depending on many factors, location, property condition, asking price. An expert real estate agent will understand how to evaluate the various factors and can advise you throughout this process.

How much work should I do before selling my home?

One of the most common questions about selling your home is whether you should upgrade it before selling it. You’ll generally encounter two main types of buyers: people who want a move-in ready home and people who want to fix or flip the property. Most home buyers are always looking for homes that are move-in ready. Simple fixes, obvious eyesores, and danger spots, such as cracked windowpanes, tiles, and plaster are a good place to start. Give your home a fresh new paint to give a house a fresh look. We’ll be happy to evalutae what you need to do to make your home sell quickly for a maximum price.
