Are you PCSing soon and have a house to Sell????

Prime military moving season is approaching us! Service members and their families are getting their orders and are focusing on relocating. You spent the last few years living in the Spokane area, enjoying the great PNW, but did you buy a home when you got here and now you have the added pressure of having to sell your existing home and moving on a timeline? Let me help walk you thru how to handle this exciting and stressful time. 

Picking your agent:

Find a Military Real Estate expert one that truly understands how PCSing and the military works. Moving with deadlines, (report no later than) TMO packing up your household goods, leave enroute and just the stress of once again leaving your friends to move to another state or even OCONUS. Someone who understands these unique circumstances can be a great asset on the side of the seller to make sure things go smoothly.

Make sure your Real Estate agent is an expert, they will help you get through the process from listing your home at the right price when your ready to sell and making sure they advise you and supervise your transaction until the day you move away and your home sells.
Check out their marketing. The agent you pick should have a marketing plan tailored to your home, when the best time to list is, when to hold an open house, professional photos, and a great description to show buyers what a great home you have. They will also be marketing it to all the big websites Zillow, Realtor, Trulia and doing their own online ads.

Preparing to sell:

Don’t rush to renovate. Just because you’ve always thought your house needed the renovation, new paint job or new carpet, new floors you’ve had in mind for years doesn’t mean you should make any major changes prior to a sale. Call your Realtor and ask them what updates you SHOULD do or DON’T do. They will help you with those decisions and what will help you get the most for your home when you sell.
Declutter, stage, and clean. Your agent will walk thru your home making suggestions on what to clear off, put away and clean. You live in your home every day, you may not see the same things a fresh set of eyes will see when walking into your home.

But if you have orders and you have to go, hire a professional and trust their experience. It will make another move in your career that much easier.
