Are you looking to move in 2021?
If you’re looking to sell, you’ll probably want to get the best possible price for your property. Who wouldn’t? Unfortunately, there are many ways to inadvertently leave money on the table. How do you avoid that possibility?
The 3 Ps of getting the best price for your home:
Do everything you can to prepare your home so that it looks great to buyers. Clean, declutter, fix, and make improvements. Home staging can also help. Staging has been proven to pay off in the end; in fact, effectively staged homes have been shown to sell for up to 5% more than comparable unstaged properties.
We know exactly what buyers look for when shopping for a home. A couple months before listing a property, we walk through homes and offer our clients a quick do list of things that will bring immense value when actually listing their home.
Seek a Real Estate Professionals to help you manage the big decision. Someone who, like us, understand the desire to work with people who truly care, as if they were family. Pros will help you with advice on how to prepare your home, the price range it should be listed at, the marketing plan to get the best exposure for your home, while helping you throughout your entire real estate journey.
Set the right asking price. This aspect is crucial and often overlooked. If it’s too low, you’ll attract only deal-hunters — and you will probably end up getting less than you should. If the asking price is too high, however, you’ll discourage those buyers who might otherwise be interested and willing to make a good offer. Be careful with pricing!
We like to compare the pricing of real estate to red wine. Yes, red wine. When you first poor a glass of red wine, you have a good taste in your mouth. This is what happens when new houses are introduced onto the market. They are new, exciting and they look good! Then think of a glass of wine that has been sitting on the counter for 75 days, it doesn’t have the same appeal as to when you first opened the bottle. This is the danger of becoming stale on the market. Other buyers will wonder what is wrong with the property.
This comparison reveals the truth about pricing the house right. When we price homes, we want to place your home on the market for top dollar and remain like that fresh glass of red wine, new and exciting!
