Final checks – Before putting your property on the market go through and make sure there are no issues with the property.

Get your property out there – Posting for sale signs on light posts is not enough to get your property noticed nowadays. So take it to the internet where there is a bigger audience who will see your offer. Post your offers on Facebook Marketplace or other social media sites and people can contact you from there. But make sure you keep up with the posts so that you don’t miss an offer.

Hire a broker – This can be an important thing to keep in mind if you have never sold a property before. Real estate brokers will know how to market your property and how to connect with buyers. They can also help you by giving you advice on what price to set for your property and tell you some of the ins and outs of the current market.

Pricing – This can be greatly helped with the hiring of a broker but you will not fail if you don’t have one. This secret is as simple as just knowing the neighborhood that your property is in.

Be Patient – Selling a property takes time and you will need to be patient during this process. Put the property out-there as much as you can but realize that you will still need to wait on the offers.

Be a people person – When a buyer finally decides to look at your house it is important that you get to know them and their needs. Find out what they are looking for and how they can use your property for their benefit. Use this time to tell them about the benefits and potential challenges that come with owning the property. Honesty is the best policy but don’t try and oversell or the buyer may be suspicious. It is also important to keep in contact with the potential buyers you may have. After they have looked at the property send them an email or a call to thank them for stopping by. Then give them a few days to think and keep them posted on any other buyers who make offers. Don’t wait too long to hear back from them or they may forget about it.
