Top 5 Secrets To Selling Your Home!
Are you getting ready to put your home on the market?
We have compiled a list below of the Top 5 Secrets to help get your home SOLD!
Number 5: Interview Your Agent-
Hiring the wrong Agent could be detrimental to your sale! You will want to be sure you are asking questions such as, "How are you going to Market my home?", "Are you watching the market for comparable home sales?". A broker who utilizes technology is wonderful, as they should have many resources to help get your home sold.
Number 4: Pricing It Right-
Find out what your home is worth- ask for a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) of your home. This will provide you with all homes similar to yours that are currently for sale, under contract, or have sold recently. These numbers will help you and your agent to come up with a plan for a fair listing price.
Number 3: De-Personalize The Home-
Buyers want to imagine themselves living in the home, and sometimes that can be hard if you have a lot of "Personalization" to show. You will want to limit the amount of photographs, memorabilia, and keepsakes that you have out. This is also a great time to "Stage" your home, which simply means to arrange the furniture and such to show the maximum space and floor plan.
Number 2: Be "Show" Ready-
You never know when a buyer will request an appointment to tour your home, so you will want it to be "show-ready" at all times! Try to be sure there are no dirty dishes, clothes, etc laying around. If you have pets- be sure their areas are kept neat and tidy. It may be a bit of a pain, but a few extra steps each morning will help in the long run.
Number 1: The First Impression Leaves A Lasting Mark-
Let's be honest, the first impression is typically the only impression. Before a buyer has even entered your home, they are looking at the "curb appeal". You will want to be sure that your lawn is up-kept, weeds are pulled, and vibrant flowers are planted in spring and summer. Buyers want to feel warm, safe and welcome when walking up to your home.
