Top 3 Frequently Asked Questions to Sell a Home in Denver

November 22, 2017

If you plan to sell a home in Denver, you probably have lots of questions. This is normal! Selling a house is a big step, and it is important you find a realtor that ensures the sale goes smoothly. As you get started, you will have the same questions many others in your shoes have had: from learning about the market and determining a sale price, to what to expect during the process, review these frequently asked questions.

Is it a good time to sell a home?

Yes! Denver’s housing market has been booming the last few years. Even though things have cooled off some it is still typical for homes to sell within 30 to 60 days of hitting the market. This is thanks to Colorado being a fast growing state, where there has been an increase of over 100,000 people over the last few years. With this boom comes the demand. Since growth is beginning to level out, sell your home while it is still a seller’s market. This will allow you to get the most out of your house as buyers are willing to pay full ask, or even more at times, to get the home they want.

How do you determine what price to sell my house?

There are many factors that go into the price of a home. First, your realtor will make a list of all the features and attributes your home offers, such as bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, and amenities. Next, they will look at homes that recently sold in your neighborhood, as well as homes currently for sale. Why? It is important to list your house at a price comparable to others in the area. If listed too high, potential buyers will pass you up. Realtors will look at price per square footage, recent sale prices, layout, time houses were on the market, and many additional factors. From there, they will present you with a price that is fair with market trends. Remember, they have your best interest at heart and want to help you sell your home as quickly as possible.

What should I expect during the sale process?

Upon putting your house on the market, you will begin to have showings for prospective buyers. You can discuss options with your realtor, but typically there is a 24-hour-in-advance window for you to prepare for your showing. This allows you to clean up, remove clutter, and anything else you would like to do before you have guests looking at your home. Selling your home? How to keep it “show-ready” — even with kids.
