South Lake Tahoe real estate is a second home, resort market and sometimes that means having to buy and sell while you are out of state. This may feel risky buying sight unseen or not being there to sell, and while it may seem tough, it isn’t impossible, especially with these tips!
- Hire a seasoned and established South Lake Tahoe Realtor. A lot of local Realtors in the area are very well versed in helping clients who are out of town. Meaning, we can handle coordinating everything with/for our clients remotely. Just make sure your chosen Realtor in South Lake Tahoe has the most sales and local knowledge and is responsive. You don’t want to feel like you are out of the area, and the loop, all at the same time.
- Make sure your South Lake Tahoe real estate is ready for the market in order to get the home sold faster. Whether this is maintenance repairs, contractors, painters, stagers, movers, your Realtor in South Lake Tahoe should have all the contacts to help you get the house ready for the market, even if you can’t be there to do it. Homes for sale in South Lake Tahoe that show well usually sell quicker and for the most money.
- Make sure everyone is connected. This cuts down on the unnecessary back and forth that comes with all the disclosures, addendums and overall process that it takes to sell and buy a home. Because there will be so much communicating, having everyone know each team player as well as their contact info can make the process even more seamless. Once again, your Realtor in South Lake Tahoe will help coordinate communication and making sure everything (and everyone) is running like a well-oiled machine.
4.) Let the control go. Listing homes for sale in South Lake Tahoe can be emotional. There are a lot of memories and moments attached to a home and selling out of state can feel a lot more difficult because you aren’t able to be present and/or say goodbye. If you surround yourself with a South Lake Tahoe real estate team that has your best interest at heart, as well as the tools and resources to get the job done to your satisfaction, you can rest assured everything is under control, which means, you don’t need to be in control. Let the professionals do their job and relax knowing you, and your property, are in good hands.
