What Will Help Yours Sell?
If Realtors Can’t Get Their Clients
Out Of the Car, They Can’t Sell Your Home! Curb
Appeal Counts! It Matters in Every Price Range.
I offer 15 years of real estate experience to the many
factors that help to sell a home at the best possible
price in the shortest amount of time. Remember, we don’t
live in our homes the way we present them to the real
estate market when you are competing with your neighbors.
So, let’s discuss a few things that effect the
price and the number of days the property will be on
Appeal: In summer the exterior of your home
and yard should be well groomed and well maintained
with moderate seasonal landscaping. Hire a gardener
if you must to maintain a polished look from the street.
If you are a gardener, tone it down a bit so that your
yard will not feel overwhelming to someone who is not.
Well Groomed Counts!
In the winter months your home should have that feeling
of warmth and welcome. Since we can look colorless during
midwinter, perhaps add a dried floral spray to the front
door. Buyers often feel that a tasteful and well-maintained
exterior is an indication that the interior will show
the same attention and care. The lack of snow removal
is a lawsuit waiting to happen!
Contracts will come in more quickly and buyers will
pay more for a home that has been well maintained and
in good condition without a lot of “deferred maintenance”.
Homes must be properly prepared to put on the market
to receive the closest to asking price. Homes that are
on the market and showing “wear” and poorly
maintained homes frequently will receive “low-ball”
offers. An experienced agent that also works with buyers
knows how buyers will react to these homes. An experience
agent will show you how to properly prepare your home
for today’s market!
And Most Desirable Factors: For the best pricing
the homes that are on a quiet street with low traffic
or in a cul de sac, near a park, backing open space
or a green belt, located on a corner lot and within
reasonable walking distance to an elementary school
have the strongest selling factors. .
Remember an over priced home only helps to sell the
other homes in your neighborhood that are comparable
to yours and available for less. Appropriately pricing
a home is paramount in getting the home sold at the
best possible price for maximum profit in the quickest
amount of time!
Appraisals: An appraisal should be
considered only one important part of establishing your
homes sale price. The appraiser looks to the past to
establish a homes value. A realtor looks to the future
and the current state of the economy, the local housing
market, your local competition and what buyers are indicating
are current purchasing priorities. Often the appraisal
and current market differ. Remember supply and demand
can change quickly.
Market Analysis: A professional full
time experienced realtor should be contacted to competently
evaluate the current market. A compete market analysis
of your home in your neighborhood’s sold and available
homes is the best way to determine your best asking
price. You can price your home depending on the amount
of time you have to sell. A careful analysis is necessary
so that the seller does not leave any money on the table!
