Realtor Offers 3 Tips to Sell Your Home

Michael Manzino learned a thing or two about finance working on Wall Street. Now a Realtor with Halstead Properties in Stamford, Conn., he has applied that same know-how to buying and selling your home for a great price. Here are his three tips for closing the deal:

THE PRICE HAS TO BE RIGHT: It’s a buyer’s market right now, and with all the information available online on sites like Trulia, and company websites like ours, www.Halstead.com , people understand pricing. If you want your home to sell, you have to price it attractively.

BE OBJECTIVE: Look at your house like a buyer would. What do you love about it? Does it have a wonderful backyard or a master bedroom complete with all the bells and whistles? Accentuate that. And neatness counts — if your kitchen counter has forty appliances on it for example, it mentally affects how the buyer is viewing your home. People want to envision a home the way they would like it to look.

USE YOUR REALTOR: You should view your Realtor almost as the quarterback for the transaction. You should view him or her as a partner and a resource, because there are several professionals involved in buying and selling your home. There's the attorney, the bank, the appraiser and inspector, to name a few. On my transactions, I make dozens of calls to everybody involved to keep them focused on closing the deal.
