SELL WITH CONFIDENCE
LET'S SEE HOW MUCH WE CAN SELL YOUR PROPERTY FOR
Staging a home properly can really transform the look and feel of a home. Decluttering and rearranging some furniture can make a space seem larger and helps the buyer see the space for what it is. This also helps the buyer envision themselves living in the home and increases the chances of the buyer submitting an offer.
Once your home is staged, cleaned, and decluttered, your home is going to need its own special photography session. With the majority of home buyers starting their search online, it is imperative to have a professional photographer take pictures of your home. You should never list your home with pictures taken with your phone!!!
PRICE IT RIGHT
Now that your home is ready to hit the market, it is time to price it correctly. It's never a good idea to overprice your home. Doing so will prevent your house from selling! Furthermore, banks will never underwrite a loan for more than what the home is worth. You should price your home at fair market value to sell in a timely manner rather than overpricing it and lose the chance of selling at all.
SELLING YOUR HOME IN A NUTSHELL
FIND AN AGENT
Find a real estate professional who is familiar with the area and knows how to implement the right marketing strategies so that your home can sell quickly and for more money.
DISCUSS YOUR GOALS
To better serve you, be sure to explain to your agent the desired goals you have in mind with the property you are selling. Are you upsizing/downsizing? Remember, your agent is here to help you achieve your real estate goals.
Before listing your property, be sure to repair any items that are in disrepair or broken such as a leaking toilet, broken windows, non-functioning a/c unit, etc. The last thing a prospective buyer wants to see is a home in disrepair.
LET IT SHOW
This is where your real estate agent starts to use his/her skills to get your home sold. With the proper marketing techniques and hard work from your agent, you should expect to see plenty of showing requests from prospective buyers that are interested in your home. The key to selling your home is to make the home easy to show. Allow for easy access for buyers to see the home when they want to. A missed showing is a missed opportunity to sell your home!
After having plenty of showings, expect one or more offers from a qualified buyer. Not all offers are the same and a good real estate agent will guide you and explain to you what each offer entails and what offer works best for you and your desired goals. After you accept an offer, your agent will negotiate the best possible terms for you on your behalf eventually and hopefully leading to a smooth closing.
