7 THINGS to do Before You Hire a Realtor
- Check comparable sales prices in the neighborhood. (Your realtor will too, but this way you’ll be on the same page.)
- Have a rough idea of your mortgage balance.
- Identify any tax issues or liens on the house.
- Clean, de-clutter and amp up the curb appeal.
- Clean, yes, but hold off making any huge improvements until you talk to a realtor to understand what will really add value.
- Make a list of upgrades and improvements that you’ve made to the house.
- Be prepared to work while the house is on the market keeping it clean, accommodating a pet during showings, and so on.
