If you are planning to sell your home this year, here are the best 10 tips that will help you sell it quickly & give value:
1. Carefully, time your Selling Period
Avoid times when sales are slow, for example major public holidays, major sporting events and festivals.
2. Research the Market
It is important to find out what the competition is in your area. Ask yourself, “Who is my competition?”, “What is it going to take to sell my home?”, “How can I make my home different & appealing?”
3. Rise above emotions
Put yourself in the shoes of a potential buyer and see the house.
Homebuyers are in the market to buy your “space” not your “stuff”. How you live in your house and the way you sell your house are two different concepts. Try to see your house through the eyes of a prospective buyer.
4. Identify the Things you Love Most
Make a list. Rediscover what attracted you to your home. After you have identified these things, plan and showcase them to their best potential.
5. Declutter your Home
Your home is a reflection of you. Take the time to look at the picture you will be protraying to potential buyers. De-cluttering and minimizing will enhance the space and functionality of your home. Space does sell!
6. Fix It to Sell It
If it is broken, faded, rusty, out-dated, dripping or dying, then replace it, remove it, repaint it or restore it. No one wants to buy your maintenence problems!
7. Always Maintain Feel Good Appeal
Remember, you are “open” for business 24/7 during the market period. Potential buyers often do “drive-bys” before they will make an appointment to preview the interior. Make sure your front yard maintains an “inviting” feel.
8. Get the “WOW” Factor
You can’t change the size or location of your home, but you can highlight it’s best features. Use some home staging techniques to showcase these features. If you don’t have an eye for home decor, ask a friend or relative or your agent for some ideas and implement them.
9. Price your House Reasonably & Realistically
We can guide you in this area. If you have done your research (tip #2) you will know what the right price point is. It doesn’t matter what home values were in the past. No overpriced home will sell, no matter how good it looks.
10. Choose the Right Real Estate Agent
Interview agents that you know you can trust. Ask them about their past successes and what sets them apart from the rest. Make sure they are assertive enough to give you a realistic assessment of your home and what you can do to improve it.
