Prepare your home for sale, clean up, make cosmetic repairs if you want. Think about what else you can improve in your home, hire a professional.

Determine the cost of your apartment

The biggest mistake of a seller would be the inflated price. Evaluate an apartment based on a comparative analysis of the market and the opinion of the evaluator. At a fair price the apartment can be sold for 2-4 weeks, when low – less than 2 weeks, if overpriced – for several months.

Get the offer to purchase and have negotiations

Even if you receive inappropriate offer, just continue negotiations, make a counter-proposal. Do not ignore the suggestions of customers.

Don’t be afraid to offer the buyer the full cost in your proposal, if you sell an apartment at a competitive price.

If you rate your property correctly, be prepared for several proposals at the same time.
