If you’re planning to sell, here are three tips to help you succeed.
Compared to last year, today’s market is slowing down. Open houses don’t have quite as many attendees as they used to, and not every listing is getting multiple offers anymore. Does that mean you can’t still get the highest possible price for your home? Luckily, there are a few things you can do to ensure you maximize the outcome of your sale:
1. Hire a professional agent. My team and I can actively promote your property to our database by advertising on social media and incorporating 3D tours of your home. Buyers can “walk” through any of our online listings while sitting at home on their computers.
You don’t want to be the most expensive house on your street.
2. Price your home appropriately. Last year, we tended to price our listings a little above the average pending price. These days, we are going to be pricing them a little under that point because as things start to slow down, that’s a better way to guarantee your sale. The goal is to price your home by what the competition for your particular property is like. You don’t want to be the most expensive house on your street.
3. Stage the home. We can recommend professional stagers to help you, or you can do it yourself. Declutter by getting rid of extra personal stuff and give your home an open, clean, and organized atmosphere. That way, buyers can easily imagine themselves and their furniture without the distractions of your personal belongings.
If you do all three of these things, we’ll still be able to help you sell your house in this market quickly and for top dollar. However, you don’t want to be the last person on the market, so if you’re thinking about selling your house, give us a call or send an email. Let’s take a look at your comps and find out what your home could sell for in this market.
