Maryland & Pennsylvania Home Seller's Guide

In general, all home sellers approach the task with the same two goals in mind: get the best possible price in the least time. And while the details of the process may vary according to the type of home and local market conditions, following these seven steps increases the prospect of success.

Step One: Look Before you Leap

You'd never buy a home on a whim; you shouldn't try to sell one that way, either. So before you do anything, take some time to study the local market and current trends. And the best way to do that is to schedule a pre-market consultation with a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Homesale Real Estate Professional. We've sold thousands of properties, and are uniquely experienced in helping sellers understand what they can do to properly prepare their home for sale. Click here.

Step Two: Learn your Home's True Value

Nothing is more important than setting the right asking price for your home. That's why it's smart to get the help of a professional with the expertise and experience to get it right the first time. That's precisely what you'll receive in a professionally prepared Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) from your professional - at no cost or obligation. Click here

Step Three: Educate Yourself

While we're confident we can do the best job for anyone selling a home in Central - Eastern Pennsylvania, we can do a much better job for those who really understand the selling process. That's why we our website offers you the opportunity to get a complete education in home selling and home ownership at your convenience.

Step Five: Use the Right Tools to Reach the Right Target

A fast, profitable sale is seldom a matter of luck. Far more often, it's the result of a sound marketing plan that makes the most of all the tools a realtor has at his or her disposal. With Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Homesale Realty, those tools are formidable indeed - from the collective resources of our area-wide office network, to a relocation organization whose ability to reach out-of-town buyers dwarfs that of any other Maryland, Central or Eastern Pennsylvania brokers. PLUS we have a host of unique, exclusive programs to generate buyer interest in your property. Please beware -- "discount" companies, with little or no programs or resources, will undersell your home to get it sold. For more information, Click here.

Step Six: Give Your Buyers an Added Value...

Whether your buyer is moving in from across the country or around a corner, they'll want all the help they can get. And that's just what they'll get if your home is listed with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Homesale Realty, thanks to our exclusive affiliation with Homesale VIP Services. A Home Services Coordinator handles everything from moving arrangements to purchasing appliances and home furnishings, free of charge to buyer and seller alike. That's one extraordinary added value for your buyer. And one big competitive advantage for you. Click here

Step Seven: ...and Added Peace of Mind, Too!

Another key selling point BHHS Homesale can add to your home is an American Home Shield Home Warranty. The plan, which covers repair and replacement costs in the event of unexpected breakdowns to major appliances and mechanical systems, protects you while your home is on the market and your buyer for one full year after closing. It's the best plan of its kind, and it's only available through Homesale. Click here
