Top Tips for Home Sellers
Understand Why You Are Selling Your Home
Your motivation to sell is the determining factor as to how you will approach the process. Sometimes this can be an emotional process. Being clear about why you're selling can help you get to your end goal.
Get it Spic n' Span Clean and Fix Everything, Even If It Seems Insignificant
Scrub, scour, tidy up, straighten, get rid of the clutter, declare war on dust, repair squeaks, the light switch that doesn't work, and the tiny crack in the bathroom mirror because these can be deal-killers and you'll never know what turns buyers off. First impressions matter!
Get Real About Pricing
Today’s buyers are very educated about the comparable sales in the area, which heavily influence the fair market value of your home. Trust the professional when it comes to pricing. This can be the difference of selling quickly or sitting on the market.
Find the Right Real Estate Agent

You’ll never interface with the brokerage — only your agent, Kailey
Agents are independent contractors who choose to hang their license with a company whose brand and culture match their business. Cascade Hasson Sotheby's International Realty offers 17 offices in OR & SW WA harnessing the power of the Sotheby's International Realty brand.
Access is Essential
Homes that don’t get shown don’t get sold. Your house needs to be "show-ready" at all times. Giving a showing time window or days that the home is available can be arranged. The best route for handling showings will be discussed in more detail.
Know What Your Closing Expenses Are When Selling Your Home
First time home sellers are often shocked when they learn about the seller expenses that they traditionally are responsible for. Ask for a 'seller's net sheet' to have a rough idea of what to expect.
If you get an offer, you have to move soon
Once you get an acceptable offer from a buyer and you sign the contract, the clock starts ticking toward your closing. Your agent will keep you informed along the way on important dates in your transaction. But once the offer is accepted, time to start packing!
Understand What You're Signing
If you don't understand ask along the way. Selling a home is a big leap, but doing your research and involving the right people can make your home selling experience one that will soon have you with a smile.
