Your family is growing… You got a great promotion… The value of your current home has skyrocketed… They’re all good reasons for making a move. Maybe the kids have left home—or you just want to try someplace different.
No matter why you’re thinking about moving, you’ll want to start by talking with a professional real estate agent, who can give you an idea of what your current home might be worth and any changes that might make your home more marketable. Staging your home—adding a fresh coat of paint, cleaning out clutter and arranging furnishings to show each room at its best—can often help you get a better price. So can sprucing up landscaping to add “curb appeal”.
When you list your home with an agent, that individual works on your behalf to market your home to potential buyers—so it’s a very important relationship. Be sure to select someone with a track record of success in your area—and a solid knowledge of pricing in your local market. Real estate agents who are affiliated with larger firms can promote your property to colleagues or peers in their organization who might have clients who are looking for a home just like the one you want to sell.
It’s also a good idea to get prequalified for a mortgage, so you know how much you’ll have to spend when you start looking for you next home. The agent who is selling your home can help you find just the right place, or you may want to work with someone who specializes as a buyer’s agent.

What Our Customers are Saying
As a first time home buyer, everyone I worked with at Trident, especially Morgan Brown, really helped to keep my mind at ease during a very stressful time. Morgan went above and beyond to make this a pleasurable experience, with regular check ins to see how we were making out in our search; always being available to answer any questions I had; and really taking the time to explain things to me and make sure I understood what was going on through every step of the process. I had a friend purchasing a house through another mortgage company at the same time, and just can't believe the difference in the level of attention and care I received from the Trident group as opposed to the mortgage provider she used, it definitely gave me an even greater appreciation for Morgan and the rest of the staff at Trident.~ M.L.
