Maybe it’s time for an upgrade, a downsize or a move closer to the kids and grandkids. No matter what your reason, perhaps you plan to sell your Smith Mountain Lake home in 2016. As any Smith Mountain Lake realtor will tell you, this is great time to sell with the economy leveling off, the aftermath of the recession considerably less and inventory in demand. We’d love to share our home selling strategies to help you get the most out of selling your Smith Mountain Lake home.
Paying the Price
Many sellers hope to get the maximum value of their home, but the actual value and the owners’ ideal value may not line up. When sellers insist on making the highest possible price the listing price, buyers can be instantly turned off, avoiding your chances of making a deal happen. A listing that begins too high usually turns into a listing that sits on the market much longer than necessary, making you a discouraged and frustrated home seller. An experienced real estate agent can help you pick the right price to sell your home.
Upstage The Neighbors
You may not be the only one on your block hoping to sell your Smith Mountain Lake home. Your neighbors could be betting on the same thing. Upstage them with great home staging. This investment can help you win buyers over and get more in the sale.
Paint a Pretty Exterior Picture
After you’ve got the interior of your home staged for a show down, it’s time to bring that energy outside. A manicured yard, fresh pots of flowers, clean porch or entryway and charming front door are all best bets on great curb appeal. Draw buyers in with an enhancement of what they’ll see first - the front exterior - and raise your chances to sell your Smith Mountain Lake home quickly at the price you’re after.
