I’m rounding out this month of luck with the last secret in our 5 Secrets of a Successful Sale — secrets that together will help you sell your home without a hint of luck or wishful thinking.
Before jumping to Secret #5, a quick review:
Secret #1: It’s your kitchen that’ll sell your home.
Secret #2: Declutter, depersonalize, and stage your home.
Secret #3: Don't go overboard on upgrades.
Secret #4: Find out what your home is worth, then shave 15-20% off the price to spark a bidding war.
And last but certainly not least…
Secret #5: Work with the right agent.
The easiest way to hire the RIGHT agent? Knowing when they’re the WRONG agent. Here are few warning signs:
- They have few references.
- They aren’t familiar with your neighborhood.
- They are new to town.
- They are hard to reach by phone, email, or text.
- They pressure you to make decisions before you feel ready.
There are a ton of AMAZING agents out there. So don’t settle! Keep looking and asking around until you find an agent you “click” with — getting a successful sale depends on it.
