5 Tips For Selling Property You Should Know About
Dated: October 5 2017
Are you going to start selling property soon? Here are some of our personal recommendations to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible.
Getting ready to sell your home can feel overwhelming. There’s so much to do before you feel it’s ready to be on the market.
The good news is that there are a lot of ways to make it easier on yourself. These five tips for selling property will help you get your home ready in no time.
Go for a Neutral Look
The key to selling a home is to make it attractive to the buyer. That means showing off your personal style is not the focus anymore.
Many buyers are resistant to put away knick knacks, paint walls in neutral colors, and make other changes. However, if you want to sell your home quickly for top dollar, these changes need to occur!
Stage Your Home for Success
Whether you have to move out before the home is sold, or you simply want your house to put its best foot forward, staging is essential. You want the house to be clean and beautiful for showings!
A professional stager can work with your existing furniture and décor, as well as bringing in pieces from outside. The goal is to set the stage so that a buyer can see the potential of your house.
Staging can be especially useful if you don’t have the furniture or design skills to show off every room. Extra bedrooms filled with exercise equipment or storage boxes don’t entice a buyer to choose your home!
Have Professional Photos Taken
You may love your cell phone and swear by the pictures it takes, but there’s no chance those will impress a buyer as much as professional photos. Hire a pro, and you’ll get well-lit, gorgeous pictures that highlight your property’s best features.
The right photos are essential for selling your property. You will sell your home faster and for a much higher price.
Don’t Forget About Landscaping
Selling property is as much about the outside of the home as the inside. You don’t want to overlook lawn maintenance, tree trimming, and garden beds. Curb appeal matters!
You certainly don’t have to create a whole new landscaping plan to sell your home, but you should spruce up your yard to make it as inviting as possible. If you want to plant new flowers or create a new garden, it can’t hurt!
Selling Property Requires an Agent
Selling a home is not something you want to do on your own. You may think that a For Sale By Owner can help you save money on commission, but the truth is it will cost you more.
Without an agent, you’ll be at the mercy of buyers looking for a quick, low-priced sale. You will also need to manage all of your own legal paperwork and financial verification. There are a lot of fees involved that you would also have to pay by yourself.
In the end, a FSBO will cost you more and sell for less money. An agent will save you time, hassle, and protect you from pitfalls.
