Whether the market is fantastic or not, if you’re selling, you will definitely want to capitalize on its greatest value. Before listing any property, I always set the stage with my clients. I personally believe in starting out strong because your first few weeks on the market are going to be the most important and will receive the greatest traffic. This results in potential offers at the highest price.
Here are three proven ways to achieve great results:
Price your home right. You can try to squeeze a few more dollars on the list price but the truth is, buyers do their homework and if your price is too high they may just keep walking to the next house. Pricing sharp allows you to receive more showings and a quick offer close, if not more, than your list price. Besides, we say “your first offer is your best offer.”
Walk around and through your home and clean it up. Start at the curb. How is the street appeal? The gardens, the weeds – Is there paint that needs touch up? Light bulbs need replacing? Garbage that needs to be picked up? Check out your front door. I can tell a lot about how the inside of a home is going to look by the front door. Is yours clean, dirty, in good shape or not? Move inside and be critical about your space. Does it look tired, dark, in need of repair, cluttered? Address anything that needs to be addressed before you do any showings. Positioning your home to receive maximum value requires work up front and strategic planning and timing. Then again, it is your money.
Once you list your home be sure that photos, floor plans, and anything else that promotes your home and property hit the open market all on the same day as opposed to having data than picture, then other material that gets uploaded in drips and drabs. The day your property hits MLS it should be a “Wow – I have to have this home!”
