Once you have decided to sell your home, you will find family members and friends coming out of the wood work to "help" you with advice. They may even try to burst your bubble by yammering on about the "buyer's market."
Do buyers have a ton of choices in this market? Well...yes and no.
There is a lot of inventory out there. However, I have noticed that it seems to be dominated by sellers who have resigned themselves to the idea that we are in a buyer's market and have simply called shotgun letting the buyers remain in the drivers seat.
STOP IT! Don't relegate yourself to passenger status. You can rock your home sale by hopping in the driver's seat and taking back the wheel.
How? Well I'm glad you asked.
Here in the Lewiston/Auburn Maine real estate market you can drive your home sale by making your home stand out as the obvious choice for buyers. I'm not talking about gold plating your entryway or expensive projects, but there are a few basics that will get the job done. Sellers in our area who have chosen to do this are not only selling their homes quickly, but many times are getting full list price, and yes, even multiple offers!
All of this in a "buyer's market?" Yes! Buyer's market, shmyer's market! Homes continue to be bought and sold in every type of market.
If you want to sell your home, PLEASE do not let this "buyer's market" be an excuse for sabotaging your profits and peace of mind. Remember, you can be in control if you:
- Hop in that driver's seat!
- Take back the wheel!
- Give me a call so we can go over the steps to getting your home to stand out in the crowd!
