Selling a Home Quickly In Williamson County, TN: A Winning Combination

Home Stager with Fresh Perspectives -

Sell your home quickly in Williamson County, TN. 

Although the Williamson County market is not currently experiencing the record breaking sales as we had in recent years the good news is real estate is still selling.

So what causes a home to sell quickly in Williamson County, TN? A winning combination of 3 simple components ensures a successful sell.  

1. You, The Homeowner

It starts with you, Mr and Mrs Homeowner! You must be serious about selling. Ask yourself, "Do I want to actually sell my home or just be another listing?" If you are not willing to listen to the advice of the professionals, you simply will not sell your home.  You must be realistic about pricing, be willing to invest the time and money required for it to show well, and be flexible so buyers can actually experience it in person.


2. A Great Realtor

Yes, there are many to choose from and you must choose wisely. They must know the market, have experience in selling similar homes (price range and/or neighborhood), understand how to effectively market a property, and demonstrate ability to negotiate (Please note: It is not wise to ask a Realtor to cut their commission. They truly earn every penny they make by marketing the property and handling the transaction. If you do ask and they are willing to give their own money away, how hard will they negotiate on your behalf when it is your money on the line?)

Don't hire a friend or family member just because they have a license. Hire the best person for the job. Interview a few Realtors to find the right one for you. Ask how they plan on marketing your home and the results they have experienced. If you had a $500,000 legal problem wouldn't you hire the best attorney you could afford? Then hire the best Realtor to sell your largest asset. Not sure who to hire? We work with many Realtors and can refer you to an outstanding agent who knows how to get your home sold.


3. A Home Stager

If you want to sell your home it must be staged. Staging allows your home to stand out among the competition.  It highlights the fantastic features and downplays anything negative while selling a lifestyle that buyers can connect with.  A good home stager comes with references, can share statistics of similar properties they have staged, and will know how to target the buyer of your property. They are a great resource for painters, electricians, carpet cleaners, plumbers, and any other service provider you could need.

True statements all.  I learned the hard way about not listening to my Realtor.  The property in question is still in my name.  It is now a rental in Indianapolis.  But what are you going to do?  I have found you can't save people from themselves.

Fabulous post and so great to see that you are marketing to your local area. Homeowners need to pre-plan and prepare their home for sale with a professional stager and a realtor who will really work for them. Truly a winning combination for a quick and profitable sale.

Lee - Sometimes we have to learn lessons the hard way, don't we?

Kathy - Sometimes I work with homeowners who don't listen to the suggestions I make. I wonder why in the world did they pay me to be there and why would they not want to get the most money out of their house and sell quickly. 

Mary Lou - Thank you. I think it is  a great exercise that is making me stretch. I love getting better at everything I do.

Lori Kim - Thank you! Sometimes homeowners don't realize they need to stage a home and I hope this post educates them on the necessity.
