Price Your Home RightYour home may be one of the best staged homes on the market, and may have some of the most desirable attributes that other homes simply can't compare with. But when it comes down to it, money talks. If you've listed your home above market value, buyers will settle for getting less to stick within their budget. It's extremely important to assess the value of your home before marketing so that you're not over or underpricing it. It's also equally important to understand the market and what it can bare for a home like yours. Sometimes listing your home for a little less than what you feel it's worth will get more promising buyers interested and could mean selling your home quicker.
Don't Over-UpgradeIt's always nice for buyers to walk into a newer looking home. It can also be a complete waste of your time and money to do unnecessary upgrades. Don't spend a bunch of time and money remodeling your home for the sale. Instead do things like applying a fresh coat of paint to the walls, replace old door handles or cabinet hardware. Clean the tile grout and carpet throughout your home. Fix leaky faucets and put those closet doors back on track. You'll save a lot of money by focusing on the small items, and eliminate the potential for buyers viewing your home as a fixer-upper.
Keep buyers from overlooking your home by depersonalizing it. One of the main reasons buyers may be looking at other homes over yours is because they simply cannot imagine themselves living in your home. Nix this problem by getting rid of your personal items such as family pictures, memorabilia, and personal keepsakes. Store them away and stage your home to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space. By doing this, you'll create a space that buyers can more easily picture living in.
De-Personalize Your Home
Always be Ready to ShowYou need to try to keep your home show ready at all times. While this may seem inconvenient, it's more of a problem if you miss out on an opportunity to sell your home. Sometimes your agent may call you wanting to show your home to a client NOW. That potential buyer may only be in town for one day and has listed your home as their first choice. If your home isn't show ready in that moment and you have to turn away the showing, they've already moved onto the next choice.
Give Off a Great First ImpressionWe cannot stress this enough - the first impression a buyer will get is home's exterior. Take this opportunity to make a great and lasting first impression by maintaining your lawn regularly. Tackle any eye sores on your home's exterior to avoid potential buyers from passing your home by. Hire a landscaper to create a beautiful and welcoming scene that buyers will want to stop for. Pay special attention to your home's entryway. This is a great opportunity to make your home feel warm and inviting for buyers and to get them to want to stay.
