Entice buyers with extras

If you're putting your home on the market, or if it has been on the market for a while without solid offers, you may consider including some appliances, furniture, or other extras in the asking price. This could help you attract buyers.

Nobody is suggesting that you part with valuable antiques or sentimental items, but you probably aren't that attached to your washing machine. Maybe you're moving to a home that won't be able to accommodate your outdoor furniture-if that's the case, you could offer your existing patio table and chair setup to your potential buyers. It might turn into the reason he buys your home instead of a similar place up the street. Also, not only will the buyer appreciate the extras, but if he accepts, you don't have to worry about moving or selling extra stuff.

This might also save you money and aggravation. If the refrigerator, washer, and dryer don't come with you, movers will be cheaper-or your back will be happier.

If you don't have the latest and greatest appliances, this can be a great chance to upgrade. Leaving items behind gives you a legitimate reason to buy new ones.

Downsizing is a common reason for many people to move. So if the home you're moving into is smaller than the one you're selling, this is a great opportunity to trim down your furniture inventory.

If you're allowing appliances to convey, provide any owners manuals or warranties that you still possess. Potential buyers will appreciate this gesture.

Enticing your buyers with extras is a good way to make your home stand apart. Look at this as a win-win situation. You reduce your moving burden slightly, upgrade your appliances, or downsize, while the buyer has a more complete home when he moves.CONTACT TONYA PEEK OR TIFFANY SHARKEY 214-356-4472 FOR ALL YOUR REAL ESTATE QUESTIONS.
