Selling Your House

Wanting to Sell: The 5 Signs It’s Time to Call an Agent

You think you’re ready to sell your house—but the whole process feels intimidating. Where do you even begin—preparing your home or finding a realtor? 

Or maybe you want to sell it on your own. You’ve seen things online that make you believe the process is easy. How hard could it be to take a few photos, throw a sign up, talk to the buyers, and do all the paperwork? 

The truth is, it’s much more complicated than that. But the good news is, an experienced Realtor knows how to navigate the entire process to successfully sell your home. 

Here are the 5 signs you need to call Nuvill Real Estate:

1. This is going to be one of the biggest financial transactions of your life, and you’re a bit stressed about the whole thing.

At Nuvill, we want you to be able to sleep peacefully, knowing we are taking care of all the logistics for you. Research proves that having a professional Realtor on your side will earn you more money in the end. According to NAR (National Association of Realtors), “For Sell By Owner” homes sold for a median of $190,000 while homes who used agents sold for $250,000!

2. You’re not sure what your house is worth or what to price it at. 

Making sure your home is listed at the right price takes experience and knowledge. If you price your home too low, you could potentially lose thousands of dollars. Pricing your house too high could drive buyers away and leave you stuck on the market for longer than expected. Nuvill agents will compare your property to similar ones that are for sale/have sold in your area, use current market insights both nationally and locally, and always take into consideration your needs and wants.

3. To renovate and upgrade…or not?

You’re having a tug-o-war battle in your own head, whether you need to upgrade your outdated bathroom, or maybe do some affordable kitchen renovations. This is a sign you should have an agent come in and tell you what aspects are currently most important to buyers in your area, and which should be a top priority to you. According to NAR, kitchen and bathroom renovations are the top two areas home buyers look at first.

4. Staging? What is that?

Staging is a part of the home selling process that your agent will help you with! Staging helps show off your home’s features in the best way possible. Easy staging tips include decluttering, adding light, depersonalizing your home, and simple furniture rearranging to help maximize your space!

5. Do I have to do a home inspection? And what does that mean?

Home inspections are pretty common when it comes to selling your home, but it’s nothing to worry about. They are mostly initiated by the buyer to ensure that your property doesn’t have any major issues that could arise. If there is something to be fixed or negotiated about, your agent will be there making sure your best interests are at the forefront of it all.

In addition to our Realtors’ experience and expertise, you gain access to our in-house Marketing Team who will take care of all the marketing for your listing—which goes above and beyond most local brokerages.
