We've decided to sell our home in the near future and I was wondering if it might be worth starting a thread to assist people in this part of the process? If you have a tip, throw it in! As an investor, I'm more a 'buy-hold-draw equity' type of guy and it just occurred to me that I may be a little out of touch with the actual 'Sale' side of things. I just dusted off my copy of Neil Jenman's Real Estate Mistakes to refresh my memory on a few items. I'll try and remember to post some of my experiences as we go through the process. Ok.....let's start with getting a realistic valuation of the price of your home. I guess we have a variety of options here from personally monitoring recent sales, getting Agent Valuations through to Residex Reports etc. Jenman seems to like the idea of investing in a valuer before you even talk to a Real Estate Agent. What have been people's experience in this regard? What methods do you think work best for getting an accurate valuation and indeed, who has used a valuer before going down the sale path? Secondly, what tips do people have for choosing an agent? Now if I can just firstly get through this enormous 'To Do List' of things to be done around the house before sale I'll be a happy man!
