If you are planning to sell your San Diego home, you are in luck. The San Diego’s best realtor know a secret that first-time sellers might not realize: we’re in a sellers’ market and home values are approaching highs that we haven’t seen since before the recession. What should first-time home sellers know before listing their homes on the market? Today, I’d like to share four tips that will help first-time home sellers selling their homes quickly and for more money. For example, be sure to price your home properly from the beginning. An overpriced home may attract lowball offers, or worse, no offers at all from potential buyers.
The economy is booming, interest rates are still near record lows, and people are eager to buy San Diego real estate. But there’s a lack of inventory in the San Diego area so buyers don’t have much to choose from. As a first-time home seller, this puts you in a really good position.
Before you list your San Diego home, you should definitely meet with a number of real estate agents. Interview them and understand how they plan to market and sell your home. Some will promise to sell your home quickly for you – and the truth is, they probably will. But that isn’t necessarily because they are the best realtor, but because we’re in a blazing hot real estate market. So instead of falling for the “sell your San Diego home quick” pitch, look for a realtor who can sell your home fast AND someone who knows how to maximize your home’s value. You want to walk away from the deal with the most money possible.

A novice real estate agent might promise to sell your home for far more than is realistically possible in order to get you to sign a listing agreement with them, but in the end, if the realtor can’t deliver on that promise your home’s value will suffer. Dean shares how to nail the right listing price from the start.
