5 Tips to Sell Your Home Fast
There is no question that in many parts of the country, in this economy, houses are currently on the real etsate market longer. Homes for sale in New Hampshire are no different. As a seller, this slow-down means there is more competition for a limited pool of potential buyers. Some tips from an experienced real estate company will do you a lot of good:
Consider the following tips to place your home on the fast track...
Make Your Home Irresistible
Go with a Real Estate Agent
Offer Incentives to Buy
The first month is the most critical. If your home is priced too high, interested buyers may never even tour your listing. The longer the property is on the market, the less prospects.
Deciding the value of a home isn't an exact science, it's based on history and trends. Yet, there is data to help you determine a fair asking price that is right on target. You may want to hire a real estate appraiser for an objective, unbiased estimate. Then consult with a Prudential Verani Realtor who can help you determine true market value based on a comparable market analysis, which will include recent home sale transactions as well as homes currently on the market. From your analysis, you may want to price your home conservatively to give it a competitive edge. Remember, if a quick sale is your objective, then aggressive pricing is the rule.
Unless they are looking for a fixer-upper, most home buyers are more likely to make a bid on a home that they can enjoy immediately. Therefore, you need to create an environment the buyer can't resist, one that says, ‘yes you can move in today'. In other words, do everything you can to make the home so attractive, charming, cozy, inviting, comfortable and exciting that a buyer will want to buy that lifestyle for himself.
Evaluate the home from a buyer's point of view. An experienced Prudential Verani Realty real estate agent will be able to offer an objective view and will also know what buyers are asking for. Get your home in tip-top shape by making repairs and cosmetic improvements, and removing clutter. This may mean investing in a few upgrades to modernize your home's look such as installing newer carpet and light fixtures and painting the walls a neutral shade.
If you want buyers to see your home, you must first find the buyers. Work with your Prudential Verani Realty Realtor to design a marketing plan that is flexible and capitalizes on your property's most desirable features. Your strategy should include ways to reach buyers online and offline - such as word of mouth, the Internet, yard signs, direct mail, open houses and so on.
Selling a home is more than just putting a sign in your yard and having a listing on the Internet. And in a competitive market, you don't really want to take the chance of making novice mistakes that can slow the selling of your home. By hiring a Prudential Verani Realty Realtor, you get the benefit of an experienced marketer and negotiator who is familiar with real estate issues in your community. A real estate agent can offer worthy advice on pricing and staging your home based on their vast experience.
Plus, there's the added value of the peer-to-peer networking among real estate agents, which can bring buyers and sellers together - sometimes even before the property goes on the market.
Offering incentives can be just the impetus a potential buyer needs to select your property over others. You may want to consider offering a carpet or paint allowance. Or, pay for a professional home inspection or a home warranty - and, depending on your market and budget, offer to pay some of the closing costs.
Don't be discouraged if there are competing homes for sale in your neighborhood. With just a few smart moves, you can turn a buyers' market in your favor.
