We recently received a great question from a couple who are thinking about selling their home and taking advantage of this great market here in the Treasure Valley. They wanted to know what steps they should expect in the home selling process and how to get started. This is an especially great question for a market like ours which favors sellers. Below are some steps that can help you get started in the selling process:
1. Get an idea of what your home is worth:
Even better, narrow it down to a more solid value range. Don't just guess based on a few local sales; we recommend checking your home's value on our website with our instant value checking tool. It's not an exact science, but it will give you a much tighter window of your home's value in this market. One of our local listing specialists will then double check the value our system gave you and make sure you have a great idea of what homes like yours are selling for in today's market.

2. Meet with a lender:
By speaking with a lender, you will better understand your budget, how much you should put down on your new home, and any financial roadblocks you have. You'll feel so much more confident going forward when you sell your house.
3. Get clarity on what you want and why:
What's important to you in your next home? It could be location, size, amenities, land, or something like an RV bay or workshop, or maybe you want to downsize into a smaller space.
We recommend to spend some time browsing our website and looking at homes to see what is on the market and what prices are doing. By doing this, you will get a much better feel for areas you are interested in, a better understanding of what you want, and how much it might be selling for.
Going through this process will give you a much better idea about whether it's a good idea to sell your home and how much you can afford to spend on the next one. By taking the right steps, you will be much better prepared to sell your home and find your next one.
