Real Estate SOLD by American Realty
Selling your home in Mason City is easy and profitable with American Realty.

Selling Your Mason City Home


Pricing your Mason City Home correctly can be the difference between maximizing your return on investment or waiting months (even years!) to sell your property.

Gone are the days when you could list your Mason City house and sellers would scramble to make an offer. Overpriced homes typically stay on the market a long time and end up selling for less than the house priced at or below its value.

How do I determine the value of my house?

American Realty will conduct a thorough market analysis.

Then we'll discuss current comparable properties, trends in the current market and what you might reasonably expect.

What are the major things I need to take care of before putting my home on the market?

There are several things you can do to set your home up for a successful sale. Some of these include:

  • Keep the house updated
  • Keep the house tidy and clean
  • Just before the house goes on the market have it professionally cleaned
  • Purge all "clutter". What seems nice to you may make your home appear small to a potential Seller.
  • Clean sewer line
  • Roof inspection
  • Furnace and hot water heater inspected and certified, and
  • Clean your carpets

  • Lender Fees
  • Home Disclosures
  • Loan Payoff fees, and
  • Escrow fees
