Price Your Home to the Market
Sellers who work with a local Realtor to optimize the price of their home based on its unique features and surrounding neighborhood are often able to receive the highest price for their market and sell more quickly. An overpriced home can stay on the market too long, leading buyers to believe something could be wrong with it. Lowering the price too many times can make a seller look desperate.
The nature of this market is that you’re going to have more first-time buyers who are more dependent on financing. Consider your options for offering buyer incentives. In 2015, 37% of sellers nationwide offered buying incentives. Providing appliance warranties or covering a percentage of closing costs can give you a huge advantage over the competition.
It’s a no-brainer why homes sell faster and for a higher price when they are ready for new owners to get settled in right away. You should strongly consider making necessary repairs and fixing major eyesores, inside and out, before listing your home. Moving is a lot of work, so tacking on a large to-do list for a potential buyer can easily be a deal breaker. Studies show that move-in ready, professionally staged homes sell up to 40 percent faster! I can show you the steps you need to take for your home to make a huge first impression.
