Real Estate Selling Tips

Top Selling Tips
Do not overprice your home, this only worsen its chances to be sold. If your time frame is important then you must be willing to lower the price to sell quickly. Cosmetic improvements create big changes and can make the difference in selling your home. Before you start any major renovation, think about the viability of recouping the cost. Do not reject reasonable offers. When your home sells faster, you save on mortgage payments and other ownership costs.

Prepare your Home for Sale
Put your House in order before you put up the "For Sale" sign.

Make sure you've done everything you can, inside and out, to make your home as attractive as possible in the eyes of the buyer.
First impressions last, and homes that look their best tend to sell faster.

Make appropriate repairs
Unless your house is nearly new, probably you need to do some work to get it ready to market. This is not the time to undertake major improvements. It is generally wiser to make only necessary repairs and cosmetic improvements that will enhance your home's salability.

Neutralize your decor
A house that is marked with your personality and style may be harder to sell. Eccentricities that you find charming may not charm a buyer. Consider replacing out-of-date carpeting, painting odd-colored rooms, and otherwise polishing your home's appearance. Pare down visible personal possessions.

Make your house look as spacious as possible
Organize your closets and kitchen cabinets, and if you have things stored in the garage, make sure they are presentable. Get rid of all the clutter; rent a storage space if you need to. You may also want to kennel your pet during this time, and hire extra cleaning help while your house is on the market.

Our real estate professionals are interested in helping make the experience of selling as smooth and easy as possible. So even if you're not ready to list your property, if you simply have questions about the market in your area, price or anything else about your property, don't hesitate to contact us.
