What Will Make My House Sell?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with CastNet Realty TREC#263257



I talk to sellers everyday about their homes and one of the most asked questions is, "What will make my house sell?"

There are many things involved in the sale of a home but there are three major ones.

1.  Price your home right. 

     Not too high thinking you can always come down.  Many buyers will walk away and never let their agent know they were interested if the house had been priced right.

2.  Condition of the home.

       Is the home staged, everything in its place, not cluttered?  Is there too much furniture and belongings for the space?  Pack it up and store it now.  Is it clean, does it smell good?  Have pets and their things been removed?  Is everything in working order?

3. Exposure to buyers.

        Your home cannot sell if it is not being exposed to buyers.  Is it on the MLS?  Is it being advertised?  Is it being shown?  Are you making it available for showings and are the times convenient for buyers?  Yes, it is uncomfortable having people walk through your home and at their convenience not yours.  You do want to sell it, right?  You get the point.

If you need help selling your home, I would love to help you.  Give us a call and we will get the exposure you need to sell, help you stage the home, take care of all the details, and even help you find another one if you want.

Price will make anything sell regardless of the condition. But if you want top price thn condition is very important.
