Farm your niche market and cover all the happenings in your neighborhood
The Nanaimo real estate market has been experiencing a buyer’s market for most of 2011.The market has improved over the last few months, but we are not in a balanced market yet.
There are a number of reasons why you may need to sell your home in a buyer's market, and though getting the most for your home in that situation may seem impossible, there are several strategies you can use to get the best offer for your home.Here are a few tips to getting the most for your house in a buyer's market!
Know Your Local Real Estate Market
While the national housing market may be booming, your local market may be very different.A real estate agent can give you the information you need to determine how your local housing market is doing, and whether it is a good time to consider selling.
Get a Home Pre-Inspection
Knowing the condition of your home, and the strengths and weaknesses of your property, can help you make an accurate evaluation of what your home is worth and how best to market it.A home inspection can also point out any repairs that may be required, and you can even use the covered cost of a home inspection as a perk to potential buyers.
Make Necessary Repairs
Making repairs may seem like an unnecessary expense when selling your home, but these repairs, especially to rooms like the kitchen and bathrooms can really increase the asking price of your home and maximize your profits.Also, having your home in move-in condition will increase interest in your home and ultimately get you a better price.
Find Out the Competitive Price for Your Home
Knowing the accurate market price for your home based on its size, condition, and location will mean that you are in a power position in getting the best price possible.Contacting a REALTOR® can help you determine the fair market value of your home.
Have a Marketing Strategy
Like any business, marketing is an important part of success; having a good marketing strategy means more people will know your home is for sale and it will be presented in the best way possible.
