When you are considering selling your home, the first thing to do is get advice on how to accomplish that in the most advantageous way. Developing a strategy before you list it can pay off with higher proceeds and a timelier sale. Here are some key pieces of advice for today’s home seller that can help you achieve that.
1. Home Staging – For your home to appeal to the highest number of potential buyers, they need to be able to envision living there in a positive light. Reduce clutter, clean the closets out so they aren’t crammed full, clean the home thoroughly, replace any worn fixtures or lighting, make your home cheery and bright, keep the flow of traffic smooth, pay special attention to what’s seen from the front door, put away personal items, and make arrangements for any pets during showings—these things can all go a long way to making your home more attractive.
2. Curb Appeal – Buyers tend to drive by homes before they make appointments to tour them, so how your home looks from the street is important. Take care of any landscaping issues, dirty windows, and so forth that you notice when you stand at the street.
3. Choose Your Realtor® Carefully – List your home with someone who has the experience to properly advise you on what to list your home for to meet your objectives and who embraces technology and a variety of tools to market your home effectively. Don’t focus on just getting the lowest fee – it is about getting the best results!
4. Upgrade but Not Excessively – Here is an area where your Realtor® can be your best friend. They have the expertise to assess your home and let you know whether certain upgrades would improve your situation without just throwing money away. Upgrades that modernize your home can mean the difference between sitting on the market for months and selling more quickly.
