When Should You Contact an Agent About Selling Your Home?

Stacie Muller, Phoenix Realtor

Hey everyone!

Sometimes I get people asking when the best time to contact an agent to sell your home is. So let’s talk about it!

The best time to contact an agent to start selling your home is, well, as soon as you decide to sell your home. Yes, even if you don’t plan on actually selling for like a year. The more time you have to sell the better.

When you start the selling process early, you can make sure you find an agent that really works for you. You’ll have the time to interview and select the right agent so you can have a great selling experience. I always recommend interviewing at least 3 agents before deciding on the one that will help you with selling your house.

Once you have an agent secured, they’ll give you ideas on how to get your home ready for the market. The earlier you contact an agent, the more time you’ll have to prep your home for sale. This means that you can tackle more time-consuming projects like remodeling your kitchen or bathroom.

You’ll also be able to time the market well. Because your agent will know the ins and outs of your local market, they’ll be able to place your home on the market at exactly the right time. That means getting the best ROI on your home.

The more time you have to sell your house, the easier it will be! Trust me, no one wants to be in a rush when selling a house.

But at the same time, if you need to sell your house quickly, it’s no biggie. You won’t have as much time to prepare or get your home ready for market, but with the right agent, you’ll be just fine.

If you’re thinking about selling your home, send me a DM! Whether you’ve just realized that you might want to sell or you know that you need to sell your house fast, I can help you through the whole process and make sure you get the best deal on your home.
