How To Sell Your Home In Alaska
1. Invest In Success: Hire An Alaska Real Estate Expert
When it comes to selling your home, expertise is invaluable, and an experienced real estate agent will not only ensure a smooth home sale, they'll also make you money. Amongst many other services, REALTORS® can help you:
- Price your home so that it garners competing offers
- Market your property to appropriate and motivated buyers
- Sell your house in a timely fashion
- Negotiate a fair price that accurately reflects the value of your home
- Navigate complicated closing contracts
If you hire a real estate agent early on the in the process, they can even advise sellers on which kinds of renovations will boost the value of your home and help you stage your house so that potential buyers are greeted by a welcoming estate where they can more easily envision themselves.
2. List Your Home
Listing your home is not as simple as it first sounds. From the onset, it's important to set the right listing price. A home that is valued too high might sit on the market for long periods of time until the seller is forced to drop their price. A home that is discounted may sell quicker, but the seller isn't collecting the full value of their property, and in a market where real estate prices are ever-rising, it's important to earn top dollar for your current property. A well-priced home will sell quickly and often attracts competing offers which ultimately drive the price up.
3. Market Your House
Once you've listed your Alaska home for sale on the market at the right price, the challenge becomes making your house stand out from others like it. This is one aspect in which the Dar Walden Team shines. Using our one-of-a-kind marketing strategy, we'll ensure that your home receives visibility on a diverse range of channels.
Radio ads, television ads, and online marketing initiatives are part of our advanced marketing strategy because we have seen the results and we understand the full value of advertising a home to its full potential. When you list with the Dar Walden Team, you have the full benefit of our listing team division who specialize in maintaining your home's visibility.
4. Negotiate A Deal
This is one of the most exciting times in a home sale. Marketing efforts have paid off and interested buyers are making a bid. While you might be tempted to take the first offer you receive on your home, a trained Alaskan REALTOR® will be able to gauge if the offer is a fair one. They can negotiate on your behalf to help you negotiate a price that is fair for both the buyer and seller.
5. Close On Your Home Sale
Once a price has been negotiated, there are also terms and condition that must be agreed upon. In many cases, the seller will have to pay a portion of the closing costs and having an experienced real estate agent guide you through the process can save you money and time.
After your home has sold, we can advise you on local cleaning services and movers who can help make your move that much easier. If you'll be buying a home in the area, we can also assist you with finding your new home.
