Home Selling Timeline: What to Expect

Time to sell house: 3 months before listing

Every stage of the home selling process looks different. Selling your home doesn’t happen overnight, and homeowners can do the following 3 months before putting their home on the market:

Decide if it’s the right time to sell

Homeowners are advised to be sure they want to sell and to be confident in their decision. Overall, America is still experiencing a seller’s market for real estate. As a result, prices and demand are high, which means quick movement and a comfortable profit for homeowners.

However, it is a good idea for homeowners to understand their local market. As shown in the list above, your region may be more competitive than the general market. On the other hand, there may be tons of homes for sale in your city, curbing the high demand that has been in the market for the last 2 years.

Contact your real estate agent

Once you know it’s a good time to sell, get the ball rolling by contacting a real estate agent. Although the real estate agent receives a commission from the sale of the home, it is often worth it by cutting your profit. Working with an experienced agent who knows your area is critical to selling your home as quickly as possible.

Your agent will place your home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), which allows buyers to view your home online. MLS puts your home in front of as many eyes as possible. Additionally, your agent can represent you in selling your current home and buying another one. Whether it’s selling or buying, working with a professional can help streamline the process.

The real estate agent is a critical piece of the puzzle, so be thorough when deciding who to work with. Contacting family or friends, real estate agents who sell other homes in your area, or agents you’ve worked with in the past are all good places to start. When interviewing a potential agent, you need to make sure the agent is friendly, skilled, and confident in selling your home.

Decide where your next home will be

Listing your next home is critical to selling your home. So, if you’re looking to sell your home, you’ll want to start looking for a new one sooner rather than later. It’s a good idea to look at the different neighborhoods you want to live in and consider moving to another state as an option.
