There are some simple and easy steps you can take to help sell your home in Eugene,. By taking care of these things while you're going through the process, you have a much better shot at selling for top dollar.

The first thing to think about is the price list price. Look at the selling prices of similar homes in your neighborhood to get an idea of what your home is worth. You can also look at your tax assessment on the property, but that won't give a great idea of your home's worth.

Make sure that when you do set your price, you set it at a level where you still have room for negotiation. The chance of you getting a full-price offer is below 100%, so you want to be able to have a little wiggle room in order to get a deal done.

Next, decide on your Realtor. Make sure the person you hire has a plan, and can answer questions like how many homes they’ve sold and how many clients they have had. Make sure they will be able to communicate with you in a timely manner.

Curb appeal is also very important. You want the yard, front porch, and front door to all look pristine when the buyers first pull up to your home. Allow prospective buyers to visualize themselves in your home. Take away personal items so they don’t feel like they’re intruding in your home. You want to have as many things out of the home as possible, so purchasing a storage locker for some of your stuff while you show the home is not a bad idea.

Finally, you need to disclose everything that you know about the property on the disclosures. Every repair you’ve had to make, and every problem you’ve experienced. If you disclose it, you are liable-free and in the clear.

When it comes to the offer itself, be wary of emotional attachment. Don't be offended by a lowball offer, simply counter with a strong rebuttal. The buyer is trying to test you.

If you have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to reach out by giving me a call or sending me an email. I can’t wait to hear from you!
