Hiring the right agency will make the difference in a successful sale.
Purge your space, remember less is more when it comes to selling your home. Buyers love to envision their own belongings in a home.
Even though most love dogs, they can be a distraction from your home. Consider taking your dog with you, crating, or confining them outside. You want buyers to remember your home not your pet.
Make a good first impression by having the outside of your home landscaped and welcoming. A well-maintained lawn/yard that is clean and clutter-free can set the mood for a potential buyer.
If there’s a restricted time frame when showings can take place, buyers may cross it off and move on. Sellers should leave during showings as this will make the buyer feel more at ease. Keep in mind most buyers works, so we have to schedule showing around their schedule.
Little things can turn off a prospective buyer. Get the carpet cleaned, paint, get rid of old furniture, allow enough ventilation for lingering odors. On the other hand, good smells such as baking or fresh scenes will leave a positive impression.
Be sure to close open permits and have proper CO’s in place. Certificate of Occupancy issues can hang up your sale for months if the appropriate documents are not available. For example, you may have added that beautiful porch many years ago, which closed the deal. When the proper permit is not acquired or closed out after completion, you can have issues closing the sale.
Choosing the right price is one of the factors that determine how fast your home sells. Like you, we strive for the highest possible price within a reasonable time. Thus, the knowledge of the local market will help set a realistic price. An overpriced house could sit on the market, costing you and your agent money. Homes that sit tend to give the impression something is wrong or used as a comparison to selling other homes in your area.
Use a local real estate agent who knows the market. When sellers choose an agent who isn’t familiar with the area, homes risk the chance of getting underpriced or overpriced costing the seller time and money.
