Examples Of Positive Micromanaging When You Sell Your House

The term "micromanaging" often gets a bad reputation. In the workforce, a boss who micromanages you may be one who asks for multiple updates a day, corrects you on tiny details, and repeatedly asks you what you're doing. Micromanaging may be undesirable in this setting, but it can have its place when you're selling real estate. As a seller, taking the approach of micromanaging may actually have a positive impact, as long as you do so correctly. Here are some examples of positive micromanaging when you sell your home.

Asking Your Agent For Updates

While some sellers simply turn over the duty of selling the home to their agent and sit back and wait for updates, this isn't an approach that works for everyone. It you want to be a micromanager, don't be afraid to check in with the agent for regular updates. Of course, you probably don't want to call the agent several times a day to see if there's any news. Remember, he or she will call you when there's something to report. But, planning to touch base with the agent perhaps every three or four days, especially if he or she agrees to this idea in advance, can be suitable.

Being Present For The Photos

A homeowner doesn't technically need to be present when the real estate agent and a professional photographer visit the house to take photos for the listing. However, if you want to be a positive micromanager, doing so can be appropriate. This doesn't mean that you need to constantly be telling the photographer what to do, but you should feel empowered to perhaps suggest specific shots or angles that you feel do a good job of illustrating the features and overall desirability of the residence.

Brainstorming Changes To Make

Ideally, your house will sell quickly. However, there are numerous factors that can make a house slow to sell. This is another opportunity for you to positively micromanage the situation. Don't be afraid to browse area real estate listings and note which houses are selling. Try to establish common bonds between these listings and then discuss them with your real estate agent. In this sense, your proactive nature may be instrumental in selling your home faster than if you were to take a hands-off approach. For example, if you find that lots of homes are selling quickly, you might want to discuss dropping your listing price by a few thousand dollars.
