So you’ve determined to sell your home. The first step is for us to meet so I can guide you in the best way to prepare your home for maximum profit. Once we’ve met and you decide on a price, based on current market values, your home may sell faster and bring a higher price if it shows well. Potential buyers will get the best impression if your home is clean, neat, uncluttered, in good repair, light, airy, fragrant, and quiet. A buyer will make a much lower offer if your house is in disrepair and will probably still insist that everything be fixed before occupancy.
Pricing your home competitively for the current market is important for maximum exposure to prospective buyers. Most home buyers search online narrowing by location and price first. This will be the first filter to gain massive attention for your house. Together we will review recent comparable sales in your neighborhood to determine your home’s market value. It’s important to note that price is one of the most important factors to consider when selling your house. We will be sure to hit the sweet spot!
Presenting a show-ready house makes for great first impressions on buyers! Together we will walk through the interior and exterior to discuss ways to highlight your home’s features and benefits. Simple fine-tuning can have big impacts —especially for the photography. Appeals to buyers and enhance the appearance of your house through a minimal and fresh approach. Home staging used to be optional, today is a necessity in selling a home fast. As part of our service, we will bring some items to help stage your home.
As part of my marketing strategy for your home I will hire a professional photographer. Homes with more photos sell faster, which makes sense because buyers are doing more research than ever before. The more information buyers can find ahead of time, the better your chances of getting your home sold quickly. It is often the first impression that buyers have of your home before stepping foot onto the actual property.
According to the National Association of Realtors 2017 study, Homes with one photo spent an average of 70 days on the market, but a home with 20 photos spent 32 days on the market. Not only do professional photographs help you sell your home quickly, but it can also help you get a better deal, too. For homes in the $200,000-$1 million range, those that include high-quality photography sell for $3,000-$11,000 more.
After a potential buyer has submitted an offer because they’ve found the home of their dreams —your home! Together we will review every offer that comes in. You will then determine if the offer is acceptable as is or maybe go through a few rounds of counter offers with the buyer. I will be guiding you every step of the process.
