Understand the Suburb
No doubt if you have lived in your suburb for any length of time, you probably understand it in many respects. However, in order to sell your home, you must understand it from a real estate perspective. For example, knowing what is selling around you and for what price will be of great value to you. While executing real estate services in Lisle IL as an experienced Realtor, I’ve had plenty of occasions to learn about these dynamics regarding home sales. There are several free suburb real estate reports to use including an Insiders Guide to Selling that can get you started.
Choose the Right Price
When considering the price to sell your house, do some research. Try to find other houses that are similar to yours and the prices that they have sold at. Then, consider the following factors:
Take these factors into account and discuss them with your Realtor. They will be able to guide you to a reasonable price that coincides with the suburb where you currently reside.
Choose the Right Time
For the most part, those in the real estate market would say that spring and summer are the best times to sell your house. This would be true for houses in the suburbs as well. Activities are in full swing and people are bustling here and there making the community come alive. As a Realtor in Lisle, I’ve noticed many spring fests and events that liven up the community come springtime. There are other benefits to this time of year as well. Many buyers will actually put off seeking a home until spring. Also, no one wants to move in the winter. If you list your house in Spring, many outdoor features can be highlighted as well. Shine up that deck and plant some spring flowers.
There are a few negative factors to this time of year, however. For instance, summer is a time when people are taking trips and enjoying an array of activities. This can work against the focus needed to buy a house. All in all, Spring and Summer stand out as the best time to sell in the suburbs.
