However, no matter whom you choose, these simple tips will help you sell your home more quickly and efficiently.
Pricing your home: It is often difficult to remain unbiased when putting a price on your home. We will work with you to determine the best possible selling price for your home. You will need to take into account the condition of your home and what comparable homes in your neighborhood are selling for.
Remember: your always better off setting a fair market value price than setting your price too high. Studies show that houses priced higher than 3 percent of their market value take longer to sell. If your home sits on the market too long, potential buyers may think there something is wrong with the property. Often when this happens the seller might have to drop the price below market value to compete with newer reasonably priced listings.
Prepare your home: Without a doubt, a visually appealing house will attract buyers, you'll never get a second chance to make a first impression. We can help you take a fresh look at your home and suggest ways to stage it and make it more appealing to buyers.
Most of us don't keep your homes in "showroom" condition. We tend to overlook doors and windows that stick, burned out lights, and overcrowded closets. Take time to carefully go room to room and declutter. The condition of your home will affect how quickly it sells and the price the buyer is willing to offer.
A home with too much personality is harder to sell. Removing family photos, mementos and personalized decor will help the buyers visualize the home as their own.
Don't forget the following:
Scrub, dust and fix up the works. Buyers will notice details. Get rid of the clutter, repair leaky faucets, wage war on dust and clean until your home shines. Small things can make a potential buyer walk away. When you prepare your house for showing, remember to:
Listen to suggestions. As you prepare your home, don't rely solely on your own judgement. It's hard to be objective when you're the owner. Your realtor will have helpful, professional tips on how to make your home more marketable.
Take a whiff. Nothing will turn a buyer away faster than an odd smell. Try to eliminate smoking, food and pet odors. And don't leave any clues. If potential buyers see a dog or an ashtray, they'll be on the lookout for smells and stains.
Turn on the lights. Open shades and draperies before a viewing. Open all doors inside home. Turn on inside and outside lights.
Get out of the house. When buyers view your home, they'll be more comfortable and spend more time if you're not there. If you must be present, be as unobtrusive as possible. Let your agent do the work.
Stay unemotional during negotiations. Selling your home can be emotionally charged, but don't let that stand in the way of making a deal. Have a business-like attitude during the process.
