3 Easy Tips To Sell Your Home for The Most Money Possible
Here are three simple ways you can get the most out of your sale.
Every week there is a new slew of homes listed on the market, but there are only a few stars of the show every weekend. What are these sellers doing differently that makes their house stand out against the rest? Here are three things not to skimp on when you're getting ready to list your home.
1. First impressions are everything. This means staging. A buyer makes their initial decision within a couple of minutes of arriving at your home. You want them to open the door and immediately imagine their life in your property. Staged homes sell for 25% more on average than non-staged homes and spend 73% less time on the market.

2. Good photography. What's the point of having good staging if no buyer sees it? Most buyers and agents are browsing housing sites to decide what homes they'd like to see. This is not the time for an iPhone photo. A good photographer will help the home shine online. Just make sure the photos reflect the realistic shape of the home. Luring a buyer in with doctored photos can be a real turnoff when they open the door.
3. Hire a strategic and competent broker. They'll be able to not only advise you on the two earlier points by recommending successful vendors, but they'll also be able to help you price your home correctly and negotiate on your behalf.
The market might be hot, but you do not want your buyers to be soured by nonexistent staging, inaccurate photos, or an overpriced listing. If you or someone you know is thinking about selling their home, please call or email us. We’d love to speak with you.
