Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to sell my house?

Many think of Spring and Summer as being the best time to put your house on the market. However, we have found that the competition of similarly priced homes will be less in the "off-season" giving you less competition in the marketplace. For example, if you are selling a $300,000 home in the summer, then there may be 35 or more on the market; but in winter, there may only be five homes listed--giving you an advantage.  Serious buyers are always looking for a home, regardless of the season.

Why should I use a Realtor when selling my house?

When selling your house, a Licensed Realtor can help you with a competitive market analysis, marketing, open houses, and co-oping with the local multi-list system (MLS) as well as navigating the contract process, seller disclosure laws, guidance on lending, and inspections.

How much commission does a Realtor charge?

When working with a real estate agent, there is no standard commission. The commission is negotiable and set by each independent Broker or Agency.  Ask your agent what their brokerage fee is for services and what that includes.

How should I prepare my house to sell?

When preparing your home to sell, presentation is everything! Homebuyers are attracted to clean, spacious, and attractive houses. Your goal is to dazzle buyers. Check out some of our home selling tips.

Do I have to sell my home to the person with the highest offer?

When selling your home, you don't necessarily have to sell to the person with the highest offer. Again, we recommend having the service of a licensed Realtor to guide you through the home selling process—but the price is not always the only factor.  Our goal at Maleno is to help you sell your home under the best terms and conditions for your family!
