Tips for Sellers

The better you understand the selling process and the more you know about the factors that make properties sell, the more likely you are to sell your home quickly and at a great price. I understand that selling your home will have a big financial and emotional impact. I’m here to help you have the best experience possible. Here are some tips that can help guide your decision-making during the sales process.

Staging Matters

It’s extremely important to make a good first impression on potential buyers. Staging the interior and exterior of your home will help make this happen. Repaint, de-clutter, and make sure your landscaping is tidy, and your home will sell for more money.

Beat the Competition on Condition

Many buyers are looking for move-in ready homes. You can make your home stand out by making it as perfect as possible. Plan to get all needed repairs done before you list your home, and fix any little flaws like nicks and scratches, loose doorknobs, and wonky faucet handles before you show your home for the first time.

Set a Realistic Price

Your buyers are going to know what comparable homes in your area are selling for. You need to know too, so you can price your home appropriately. The best strategy is to ask me to find the sales prices on the three homes most similar to your own that have sold in your area within the last month or so. Then, aim for about 10 to 15 percent less for your home’s list price. Why? Because buyers are looking for a deal. Attractively priced homes will get more attention and more visits from buyers, and you may even receive multiple offers.

Know Your Competition

You need to know how your home compares to other properties that your potential buyers may be looking at. I can help you get information regarding the list price and condition of other homes similar to yours, so you can be confident your home can compete. Remember, homes need to get shown to get sold.

Selling a home is a major financial transaction—probably one of the largest you’ll ever make in your life. You need specialized guidance to make sure the process goes smoothly and you end up selling your home in a timely manner and at a good price. This is exactly what I provide.
