Spring is a popular time for listing homes. Here are some tips to get you started on listing your home!


1. Research potential agents. You'll want to find a registered real estate salesperson who is right for you. Shop around before you make a decision. You could ask friends, family or coworkers for recommendations. Once you've made a shortlist of salespeople, talk to at least three of them. Sit down with them and ask about their real estate experience, references, services they provide, and how much they charge. You should trust the person you are working with, so meeting with them is important. 


2. Create an action plan. Many sellers are happy when their salesperson lists the home on the MLS, places a sign on the front lawn and shows it to interested buyers. Other sellers want more action such as open houses, home staging, digital marketing or even advertising in high-end magazines. It's important that you and your salesperson are on the same page when it comes to marketing and selling your home. Ask questions and be sure to understand the reasoning behind each action. Voice your ideas and talk through them with your chosen agent.


3. Keep your home safe during open houses and showings. An open house is an invitation for visitors to enter your home. Protect yourself by removing valuables and personal information and making sure that people entering are accompanied by a licensed agent at all times. Have a lock box for showings. If you don't think holding an open house is right for you, tell your salesperson.
