5 Tips for Selling in this Market

Five tips to help you get the most money possible from your home sale.

Are you looking to sell your home soon? It’s often the busiest time of year for the real estate industry, so you need to be prepared if you want to get the best deal possible. Here are five tips to help you get your house ready to sell:

1. Price your home right. Our market has plenty of opportunities for sellers, but only if you price your home correctly. Work with an experienced real estate team to find the perfect price for your property. One strategy that works well is pricing your house a little under market value. While it may seem odd, this will draw in tons of buyers, and the competition between them will naturally drive up the final sales price.

2. Stage your home. You need to help your buyers picture themselves living in your home. A properly staged home will sell faster and for more money than an unstaged one, so work with a professional to make sure your house looks its best.

3. Clean, declutter, and depersonalize. Consider hiring a professional cleaner. By decluttering, your home will seem bigger, and it gives buyers a blank canvas so they can picture themselves living there. This is also a great opportunity to get ready to move. As you declutter, depersonalize as well. Your family photos are lovely, but they make it harder for your potential buyers to envision their own photos sitting on the shelf.

4. Focus on curb appeal. Give your home a fresh coat of paint, but remember to keep colors neutral. By making your house feel fresh, you can get a big return on investment. Curb appeal is very important, so make sure your lawn and flowerbeds look fresh for marketing photos and buyers’ eyes. First impressions matter in real estate, so make sure you make a good one.

5. Hire an experienced real estate team. Agents work hard to negotiate the best price and terms for your house with the least amount of inconvenience for you. You could receive multiple offers if you sell soon, but we can help you pick the best deal. Don’t just pick the agent who claims to offer the best price. Instead, pick someone you can see yourself working with long-term.
