Sell Your Home – A Road Map

Planning to sell your home and looking for a clear road map of what to do? Every realtor will tell you that they will sell your home for the most money and as quickly as possible. But do they skill and resources to make that happen? First your home must appeal to buyers to get them through the door. Be sure to hire a REALTOR® that knows how to make that happen.


Strategy – Appeal to Buyers

Getting the buyer through the door to see your house is critical to sell your home. This can happen in one of two ways.

Low Price. Price your home at a point where the buyer thinks they are getting the deal of the century. The buyer will be motivated to see your home because if they don’t move quickly, somebody else will. This is a great strategy for some sellers, but not all. In some cases, this runs the risk of leaving money on the table.

Prepare Your Home. This means that you should make your home move-in ready so it appeals to the broadest number of buyers. Buyers today are very busy and do not have the time fix up a home. Also, buyers have more purchasing power in a mortgage than they have cash for renovations, due to low interest rates. Therefore, the best way to appeal to buyers is the make the home READY TO MOVE IN. This strategy is the one that has repeatedly proven to achieve both goals: sell for top dollar AND as quickly as possible.

Next Steps – Prepare Your Home for Market

Maximize your efforts by quickly and easily prepare your home for the real estate market. This can appear to be a daunting job as it is important to focus on the things that will appeal to today’s buyer. Design aspects that are current appeal to the majority buyers and it is important to know how to use them. Simple placement of furniture can make a room feel inviting or crowded.
