Pricing is one of, if not, the most important aspects of your sale. By using the market data and finding out the prices at which comparable homes within your area or surrounding areas sold, your agent will work with you to come to a competitive and acceptable price for your home.
Fancy Up Your Curb Appeal
First impression is everything, and that is what curb appeal equals for a home for sale. Simple changes such as repaving the driveway, planting some flowers, pulling weeds, repainting the exterior walls, or even installing a new front door or windows can make a huge difference in refacing the front of your home.
Upgrades and Repairs
A move-in ready home is the most desirable, so it’s important to have things around the house fixed up to leave less work for new owners. You would be surprised at how much even little fixes can help sell your home more quickly. Another great way to speed up the selling process is to modernize appliances, countertops, tiles and other home features as new buyers are usually looking for an upgrade to their current situation.
Declutter and Depersonalize
This can often be the largest challenge for many people. The inside of your home should be clean and free of too many objects which could distract your potential buyer or make the home look less desirable. Take the time to actually organize and clean as opposed to just hiding things and moving things around. Once you’ve decluttered, depersonalizing is the next step which involves removing items such as family photos and certificates that may not allow the new buyer to envision themselves in the home.
High Quality Photos
Your pictures are the first thing that draw attention to your home when potential buyers see your listing. The photos you include in online listings should be accurate and appealing, making a buyer want to see your property over others. Hiring a photographer is a great idea as they are more familiar with catching angles that will compliment your property.
Timing is Everything
Many different things can determine the best time for selling your home such as your location, personal situation, time of year, so be sure to take all things into consideration when listing so you are able to get the most value for your home
