Here’s Why You Should Meet With A Realtor 1 Year Prior To Listing Your Home

Here’s Why You Should Meet With A Realtor 1 Year Prior To Listing Your Home

  Meeting with a Realtor one year before you plan to move seems a bit far in advance, right? Here’s why it is the perfect time to meet with a Realtor. If you want the best value for your home, you want to eliminate or fix anything that will decrease the value. You don’t want any financial surprises the week before you list your house for sale. For example, if your roof is 30 years old, it would be a good idea to replace it. This is a big-ticket item that buyer’s will use to negotiate price. Replacing a roof isn’t a quick or cheap job. Having one year to get it done gives you less financial stress and time to figure out what type of roof you want and which company to hire.

   Getting an accurate evaluation requires your Realtor to come to your home and take a look at any upgrades you have done. Knowing ahead of time what the value of your property is helps plan for what price range of home you will be looking for. If you think that you can get a million dollars for your place but realistically a Realtor tells you that it will sell for $849,000, it’s better to know now than fall in love with a house you actually can’t afford.
