Dos and Don’ts for Selling Your Home in the Las Vegas Real Estate Market

By Kathryn Bovard

So, you’ve decided to sell your home. You have the internet and that sign in your front lawn. What could possibly go wrong? Lots. Whether you are one among many in the Las Vegas short sales market or just ready for a change of scenery, here are four tips to help you when selling your home:

1. Don’t attend your own open house.

This one is probably more difficult for some than others, but if you are selling your house, you really shouldn’t be around at the open house. All the reasons you might think your home would be great for a potential buyer might not translate. Instead allow the buyers to give unbiased, objective feedback to the agent. This will only help you in the end.

2. Do hire an agent.

What can an agent do that a for-sale-by-owner can’t? To start,  you won’t get on the multiple-listing service (MLS). That means that other agents are not going to know that your property is for sale. An agent can also show your home for you, which saves you the time of having to be home whenever a potential buyer wants to come by and take a look. Last, having an agent during the closing will help you understand all of the legal complexities.

3. Don’t pick the wrong agent.

If anything is worse than having no agent, it has to be having the wrong agent. A meeting with an agent should be like a job interview because this person is going to be working for you. It can also be helpful to meet with an agent in her office. Not only will you find out how organized the agent is, but you’ll have a better feel for the environment she works in and whether her level of professionalism is conducive to being able to do a good job for you.

4. Do explore all of your marketing options.

When you meet with your real estate agent, discuss the different marketing tools that he or she has available. This should be done in the beginning when you are setting up a contract.
