Buffalo Grove Real Estate Agent shares a selling secret- Mums the Word!

Real Estate Sales Representative with Coldwell Banker Long Grove

As a dedicated Buffalo Grove real estate professional, I love to share with my clients many different real strategies on how to sell their home for the most money in the least amount time.  

Assume you are contemplating listing your Buffalo Grove home  next year in early February, one of the most popular times my clients call me when they make the decision to sell their home.  Imagine what the marketing photos of their home would look like at that time of year.  If you live in  the Chicago's suburbs, the curb appeal would be pretty bleak- it  would either include dirty snow or ugly barren trees.  (Sometimes not a pretty site and one that does not make a good first impression.) 

Plan Ahead...

If you are planning to sell your Buffalo Grove home  next spring or even if you are not planning to sell your home,( a job transfer may pop up unexpectantly) I recommend that you take proactive steps and take pictures of your home in the next few weeks.  Why now?   Fall is one of the prettiest seasons in the Chicago area, and your home and landscaping would probably have the greatest marketing appeal.     

One caveat,  before you click away, I recommend  purchasing a few potted mum plants  and clean up the front of your home from debris.    If or when you  ultimately make the decision to move, you will have gorgeous pictures that your realtor will be able to display on the internet next spring. 

In my opinion, it's the photos -- and good photos -- that gets a potential buyer in your home, and you only get one chance to make a first impression.   A good picture is worth a 1000 words, a bad picture on the other hand  may result in the consumer skipping over your home in their internet search and you not selling your home.   

According the National Association of Realtors, nearly 94 percent of homebuyers start their home search on the Internet.   Start Clickiing Away....

I am right there with you...I think that good pictures captivate an audience - so if a seller is thinking of putting their home on the market soon - they should be clicking away now. Great read!
