5 Tips to be a Successful Home Seller
July 1, 2018
The summer home-selling season is upon us.
There are small things you can do to ensure that you get the most from the sale of your house. The process can be stressful, but having a game plan can help ensure a winning outcome.
Five tips to help you be a successful home seller:
1. Start with a Plan. Setting a realistic timeline will help you prioritize your home repairs and sensibly plan organizing and downsizing activities.
2. Understand the Market. Interview a few real estate agents to learn your home’s value in today’s real estate market.
3. Clear the Clutter. Now is the time to get rid of unwanted items that you will not bring with you to your new home.
4. Make a Good First Impression. You want your home de-personalized so the prospective buyer can envision themselves living there. Store non-essential items like family photos, collectibles, and other memorabilia.
5. Price Your Home Right. Pricing your home correctly allows you to sell in the shortest amount of time for the best possible price. Avoid chasing the market by pricing your home too high, which may lead to multiple price reductions as your house spends an extended amount of time on the market.
