If you're looking to sell your home, getting it ready for the market is one of the most important things you can do. You'll want potential buyers to see that their investment isn't just worth buying--it's also worth living in. If you have some time and energy left over, there are a few things that we can do to help position you in this current market and outperform other listings out there:
Get a home inspection
One thing that we can advise you, especially if you have lived in your house for 10-20 years or more and still haven’t made any upgrades, it would be a good idea to look for a home inspection company and have your property checked.
In that way, these experts can evaluate your property from the littlest of things to the possible major expenses that could make an impact on your potential buyers. This is a good start in preparing your home for selling because you will know ahead of the important things that need to be tackled with the buyer.
Consider who your buyer is
It is important to take a look at who the buyer might be. Is it a young couple that’s just getting started? An investor that is looking to come in and renovate the property—maybe turn it into a rental or flip the house and turn it into someone else?
This is important to take a look at because the arrangements may vary depending on who your buyer will be. This will also help set reasonable expectations when transacting with your potential buyers.
Price your home appropriately
This might be the most important tip we could share.
Pricing is 85% of you selling your home. No matter what the market is, you’ve got to be priced right.
This is where we come in, we want to take this opportunity to sit down with you, take an objective look, and help you price your house appropriately in this market so that you can outperform other listings out there and get your property sold in no time.
