There are certain habits that successful home sellers have in common when it comes to selling for the most money in the least amount of time. Having sold real estate for close to two decades and after helping over 1,700 families, I’ve learned a few things about what gets a home sold quickly and for top dollar.
Condition obviously plays a factor. You want great curb appeal because some buyers may just drive on by your house if they don't like what they see from the outside.
When the buyer comes into your home, it should be in great condition, decluttered, and sparkling clean. The home should smell really good and all the lights should be on as well.
It’s best if the seller isn’t home during showings. Sellers who provide access to the property on two hours’ notice allows flexibility to buyers. The more flexible sellers are, the easier it is for the home to sell and the quicker it gets sold.
You don’t want to have any deferred maintenance items in your home. If buyers see it, they will wonder what else is wrong, even if something is insignificant. This could lead to lower offers or no offers at all.
Pricing is of the utmost importance to help you get maximum exposure to the market and attract the most buyers possible.
Finally, it’s vital to use a great Realtor that knows how to price the home, market the home, drive buyers to the home, and sell it quickly.
If you have any questions for me about selling a home or real estate in general, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
