Couple Money Podcast

For many couples, getting their house to sell for top dollar can help them hit crucial financial goals. Today we’ll go over what you need to know to get a great price when selling your home! 

Selling Your House for Top Dollar

Before we begin, I want to give a disclaimer that this episode’s topic and interview were done before the volatile landscape we find ourselves with the stay at home order in NC due to the coronavirus. 

I’m releasing it now for a few reasons:

  1. At some point in the future, these restrictions will be lifted and so now could be a time to start taking steps around your place to get it ready for sale
  2. I just saw a house in the neighborhood put a for sale up this week (dozens of listings new – or within the last 24 hours)- so people are trying to move on as best they can
  3. With things shifting including jobs, many couples in the relatively near future may have to move 

So while there may be an immediate pause on house tours, with this time many of us have at home, I thought it would be practical to get into ways to prepare so if you do sell when it’s time, you have what you need to get it done. 

I’m very grateful to have one of my favorite real estate experts back. Louis Guillama is the Vice President of Real Estate Operations over at Coastal Credit Union. 

In this episode we get into:

  • The biggest mistakes couples make when selling
  • How to Stage Your House to Sell 
  • How to decide if you should fix and update your place to able to sell it for more

Let’s get started!
