Ever wonder why some houses can have a number of showings right when they go on the market and other homes gather no attention? You may wonder the same thing about buyers making offers on one home, but not one that is quite similar.
There are many factors that go into selling a home. Price, location, and features are a big appeal to home buyers, but there's more to the equation that will capture the buyer's attention.
Assuming your home is priced accurately, a big factor in selling your home is readiness. A good agent will help outline a pre-listing plan and get you focused on important items. Homes that are prepared to accept a new resident will be more coveted and quick to capture buyers' attention and fetch you an offer.
This is an area we feel sets us apart from many realtors. Rather than the seller offering credits and incentives later, we focus on things that need to be done up front.
This starts with taking very detailed notes when previewing the property and looking at it through the eyes of a buyer. Things like cleaning up your overgrown landscaping, repainting the front door, and small cosmetic fixes can help you get top dollar for your home. If one part of your home looks run down, a buyer may feel you haven't taken very good care of the home.
Another very important aspect is staging your home. We pay for 1.5 hours of professional staging for every listing. We utilize a professional stager for every listing to ensure the property is looking its best.
Some may tell you that selling your home is about luck. Waiting for luck will do nothing to help the process. Preparation is the key to selling your home for top dollar!
