Most often, a person’s largest asset is their home. It is a vehicle for wealth for you and your family. When you decide to sell your home, you turn it from an asset to cash. Knowing how to position your property for the most return can change what is possible for your next home and beyond. Check out these below tips for setting yourself up for success in the home sale process!
You of course want to get the highest price possible for your home. In order to do so, you must prepare your home to be in the best possible condition for any potential buyer. As your realtor, I will provide guidance on hiring the appropriate professionals to set your home apart from the competition. This could mean having repairs done, improvements made or simply a cleaning conducted in order to ensure that your home looks the best it can for buyers. Additionally I will provide insight on the market, timing and pricing.
Pricing a property appropriately is essential to selling your home. I will provide you with market research and current market data in order to educate you on current competition in your neighborhood as well as recent sales to help you price your home to gain the most leverage as possible.
I would argue staging is one of the most important aspects of selling your home. During the selling process, I will meet with you in your home and assess what needs to be done before we list. This may include simply decluttering various spaces to painting, repairing items, to adding exterior landscaping. Sometimes your home’s furniture may not appeal to a broad audience therefore hiring a staging company may be the best option. In this case, I will help you navigate this process so it is as seamless as possible.
Before professional photos are taken, it is important to make sure your home is clean and tidy. Showings can be scheduled at any time so to alleviate stress and not have last minute scrambling, it is best to maintain the cleanliness of your home for any prospective buyer coming through.
Regardless of what type of home you own, a condo or a single family, the exterior of the home is the first thing prospective buyers see when they arrive to the property. Maintaining the exterior is just as imperative as maintaining the interior therefore I may suggest doing some painting or potentially landscaping in order to showcase how special your home is.
