Questions to ask Before Listing

Ask yourself these questions before you meet with your agent:

  • Will I need to make any improvements to the home?
  • How old is my home?
    • The age of your roof, plumbing, and electrical wiring may come into play when pricing your home repairs after an inspection.  Be prepared for unexpected costs.
  • Will the return be worth the investment?
  • What improvements have we made on the home in the past?
    • Take a list of these things to agent for the listing write-up
  • How much do I owe on my home?
  • What’s the bottom dollar I can accept?
  • What’s my ideal selling price?
  • What’s the market in my area like right now?
  • What would my home appraise at?
  • Am I willing to pay any closing costs and how would this affect my asking price?
