Steps to Listing Your Lake Country Home

  1. Decide to Sell Selling your home is a significant decision, requiring full commitment to the process. It’s important to be prepared for the challenges of selling and moving.

  2. Determine How Much You Owe If you have a mortgage, contact your mortgage company to get your payoff amount. This figure will change slightly before closing but will give you a good estimate of your net proceeds after costs.

  3. Hire a Real Estate Agent Engage an agent early in the process. Choose someone you’re comfortable with, who is honest, and has a strong marketing plan to reach as many buyers as possible. Be ready to sign paperwork to hire your agent.

  4. Determine a Listing Price and Possible Net Proceeds Your agent will show you comparable homes that have sold recently to help set a price range for your home. While no agent can predict the exact sale price, the market will determine this. Your agent will also provide a “net sheet” outlining the costs of sale and expected proceeds.

  5. Get Your House Ready to Sell Your agent will advise you on necessary repairs, worthwhile updates, and staging tips to make your home appealing to buyers. They might also recommend a professional home stager. This step can take time, so it’s crucial to start early.

  6. Schedule Photos Ensure your agent arranges for high-quality photos or hires a professional photographer. Great photos are essential for attracting buyers.

  7. Marketing Plan A good agent will have a comprehensive marketing plan ready before your home is listed on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service).

  8. Home is on the Market Once listed, your home will appear on the MLS and be syndicated to various real estate websites. Be prepared to accommodate showings!
