Rockland County New York Real Estate - Selling Your Home, Raising your home’s value in the marketplace

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty

Raising your home’s value in the marketplace

Buyers pay less for homes with negative associations such as a busy street, poor condition, unappealing drive-up, or prison-like bars on the windows.  They pay more for attractive locations, good schools, curb appeal, cleanliness, storage space, and well-done updates, among other attributes. 

Ideally, you want to have time to sell and not be pressured by job transfers, divorce, foreclosure, or other vulnerable situations.  If the buyer knows there is pressure behind your sale, he or she may use that as an advantage in negotiations, regardless of how well you've prepared the house.  Keep your reasons for selling private between you and your agent. 

The highest prices are obtained by sellers who have taken the time to prepare their homes for marketing.  This includes all needed repairs, staging the home to appeal to the most buyers, and making the house available to show to buyers. 

Don't let the house seem too small by having any rooms do too much duty.  Buyers are confused when a bedroom is an office, too.  Get rid of any excess furniture that make rooms look smaller, or impede traffic patterns.  In other words, think of objections buyers may have and overcome them before they make a low offer.
