Even in a hot seller's market, it's important to partner with the right agent when selling your home. Will most homes sell quickly in this market? Yes, but wouldn't you also like to net the most amount possible for your home?
Below are some of my best-kept secrets to selling your home quickly, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘰𝘱 𝘥𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘳:
1. ᴘʀɪᴄᴇ ɪᴛ ʀɪɢʜᴛ.
Overpricing your home (even by a few thousand) is one very easy way to make sure you don't get top dollar for your home. Buyers in today's market know what your home is worth due to having access to all of the online valuation tools, and if it is overpriced, they will wait for the price to drop. A home priced correctly will ALWAYS generate more interest and sell faster.
2. ʟɪɢʜᴛ ɪᴛ ᴜᴘ.
It is important to always maximize the light in your home. Every buyer wants great lighting, so make sure you remove any curtains, clean the windows inside & out, open the blinds, and turn on all of the lights during showings. These easy steps will make your home feel brighter & more welcoming.
3. ᴄʟᴇᴀɴ ᴏᴜᴛ ᴄʟᴏꜱᴇᴛꜱ.
Storage is something every buyer is looking for, and can never have enough of. Organize your closets and donate anything you don't wear or need anymore.
4. ᴄʜᴏᴏꜱᴇ ɴᴇᴜᴛʀᴀʟ ᴘᴀɪɴᴛ ᴄᴏʟᴏʀꜱ.
You'll want to present the closest thing to a blank canvas, so buyers can start envisioning their own style in your home. If your budget is limited, focus on the main areas such as the kitchen, family room, and master bedroom.
5. ᴅᴇᴄʟᴜᴛᴛᴇʀ ᴀɴᴅ ᴅᴇᴘᴇʀꜱᴏɴᴀʟɪᴢᴇ ʏᴏᴜʀ ʜᴏᴍᴇ.
This is one of the most important steps in preparing to sell your home, and goes hand-in-hand with home staging. It's all about neutralizing, or removing your personal taste from your home decor so that buyers can envision themselves living in your home.
Selling a home is exciting, but it can also be stressful, which is why hiring the right agent is crucial.
