Listing Your Property for Sale

“It can be stressful to see your home languish on the market while others in your neighborhood are moving quickly. A home that isn’t selling can cost you time and money, not to mention your sanity” (

So, here are a few things to keep in mind, when listing your property for sale:

1. Pricing
Listen to the advice of your RE/MAX agent. Remember, he or she is the “hometown expert,” who has lived and worked in the area for years. RE/MAX agents have the knowledge and experience you need, when pricing your home, land or commercial property for sale.

2. Timing
In the Tryon NC area, traditionally, the busiest showing months are during the spring and fall, because the natural beauty of the area peaks during those months. So, take the time leading up to those months to “ready” your property to list.

3. Location
Who has not heard the saying: “Location, Location, Location”? While there is truth to that saying, location can be subjective, so don’t be discouraged, if you don’t live in a so-called “prime” location. Remember, another old saying: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Someone exists for nearly every property on the market and it only takes one someone for yours.

4. Condition
Of course, it goes without saying that condition is important, so do what you can, if you can, to take care of those nagging issues, but if you can’t, then be certain to price your property accordingly and, if feasible, offer a home warranty to potential buyers. Be sure to consult with your RE/MAX agent, because he or she is the real estate professional and “hometown expert.”

5. Marketing
Technology makes for a “small world.” With RE/MAX you can rest assured that your real estate listing receives the “utmost online exposure.” RE/ is international, so when you list with RE/MAX, your property can be seen as far away as Mongolia—and, yes, an agency recently opened there–or just down the street, say, in Tryon NC or Landrum SC.

“Remember, when you’re ready to start the process of selling your property, help is just a phone call or email away. Your local RE/MAX agent is standing by” (
