Selling your home is not easy; it’s just not a simple process. Here are a few tips and tools to help guide you in the right direction.
Meet with an Agent – Your agent can help you handle all of the little things, from listing to a successful closing. There are so many things to remember during this process, your agent will be a great tool to get you from the starting line to the finish line.
Getting your home ready (Staging and More) – This is one of the most important parts before listing your home. It’s proven that a clean, well-staged, de-cluttered home sells faster and for a higher market price.
Professional Photography – Don’t just snap a few pictures with your Polaroid, have a professional take amazing photos of your home. This is worth its weight in gold. Most buyers are searching online and using this information to determine if they like a house or not, show them the full potential of your beautiful home.
Pricing – Everyone wants the most money for your home, it’s your pride and joy, but overpricing your pride and joy can actually cause you to lose money! Start on the right foot (price) and get your home sold quickly.
Marketing and Listing – Now that your hard work is done (above), it’s time that your professional team steps up to the plate. Having your home fully exposed on the MLS gives you a giant head start in the selling race. This allows your home to be seen by every real estate professional in your local area and beyond. These professionals already have buyers in place wanting homes in your area; give them the resources needed to see your beautiful home. Marketing helps drive the general public’s exposure to your home. Make sure your team has marketing professionals that will market your home in print, online, and in any other way that is needed in your market.
These are just a few of the most important items you need to do in order to list your home and get the most bang for your buck. We have more information that can be found here.
