Home Seller FAQs
If you decide to hire a real estate agent, they'll use their experience and comparable home prices to come up with an accurate price of your home. If you plan to sell your home on your own, you can determine a listing price by searching for homes in your neighborhood or on home-buying sites. Compare your home to others for sale or recently sold to determine a competitive price.
The home buyer will pay for the majority of closing costs. This may include the application fee, credit report, title insurance, property taxes, escrow fees, origination fee, and underwriting fee. The home seller will normally pay for separate closing costs at the end of the transaction, including the real estate agent's commission. Commission is typically between 5% and 6% of the home's final price. This money is split between the buyer's agent and the seller's agent.

You'll need to put a lot of time and effort into selling your home on your own, including pricing your home, prepping it for sale, listing it on the Internet, marketing the house, staging, holding tours and open houses, negotiating price, and closing on the house.

Spring is the best season to sell a home. May is the top month for home buying with warm weather and the end of the school year. Additionally, landscaping looks better and home tours and open houses can accommodate more potential buyers due to extended sunlight.
An appraisal is an approximation of your home’s worth. An appraisal shows your loan officer how much value your home has and what it's worth in the current market. An appraisal is done by a home appraiser and is typically conducted after the purchase has been agreed upon by the buyer and seller. An appraiser will walk through the home and take note of the home's features and condition. Home appraisals are usually paid for by the seller.
A real estate agent can be found through referrals, online searches, and other sources. Ask family and friends if they recommend a specific agent in the area.
