4 Steps to Sell Your Home for Top Dollar

Your home is an important investment. It’s the most expensive thing you own. You’ve put a lot of time and money into it through the years. Now that it’s time to sell, you should get as much money for it as you can.

  1. 1) Find out how much your home has increased in value.

    The amount your home has increased in value since you bought it is called equity. This will give you an idea of how to price your home.

  2. 2) Work with an experienced real estate agent.

    On average, an agent can make you $39,000 more than if you sell your home yourself! They’ll also handle the hassle of paperwork and details.

  3. 3) Price it right.

    An agent will help with this. You want to get the most that you can for your house. This will mean you have more to live on, save and invest.
