Friendly Tips: How to Sell Your Home Faster, For More
If you’re planning to sell your home this year, I have a few important tips that will help attract buyers to your property and get you an acceptable contract.
#1 Make Your Home the Best!
Overlooked home repairs and property maintenance will turn away buyers and realtors who could bring many prospective buyers to your home. As you’ve read in the news, there are numerous homes for sale in every price and size category. Yours should be the best!
#2 Know What Your Home is Worth
We are in a Buyer’s Market. Holding out for the highest sale price will not be a successful strategy. Buyers can now choose from dozens of competing homes that would meet their needs including builders’ closeouts and bank foreclosures. Overpriced homes will simply be overlooked homes.
You are moving on and buyers need to visualize moving in. The comfy and incredibly worn out recliner, piles of family pictures, cluttered shelves and surfaces, religious objects, pets and family members need to be out of site for each and every showing.
#4 Spend Money to Make Money.
Replacing worn-out carpet, painting with memorable and contemporary colors, planting a few mature plants and mulching, and consulting an interior designer can help you make a winning first impression and fetch a higher price.
#5 Market Like a Professional.
You have to cover ALL of your bases: Multiple Internet portals, Multiple Listing Services, On-line Visual Tours, Print Media including magazines and newspapers, Specialty or Niche on-line forums, Direct Mail, Outdoor Advertising, In-home Color Brochures that let buyers SEE the possibilities they might explore after purchasing your home. Broadcast media – TV, Radio, Cable, Satellite have come of age.
These strategies have helped me become one of the top selling, local, full-time Realtors in our company. I hope they work for you. If you need assistance, please call me.
