If you want to sell your home quickly and for top dollar in 2017, there are four clever ways to do so that you should be aware of:
1. Price your home correctly. The more time you spend finding the sweet spot for your home price, the more offers you’ll get, effectively driving up the sales price. If you overprice your home, you risk losing interest during the first few weeks and will end up getting a lower price for your home.
2. Stage your home. Buyers shop with their eyes online. This means they get a quick glance at what your home looks like and they might miss little details like the quality of a kitchen remodel. You need to stage your home as a product to sell, which means taking the “home” out of your house. Remember, less is more when it comes to staging, and if you need any advice, we have stagers that can help you get the most bang for your buck.
“If you overprice your home, then you’ll end up with a lower sales price.”
3. Time the sale of your home. Although it’s very cold outside, the spring market actually starts in January, contrary to the popular belief that it starts close to May. I would suggest not waiting until April to list your home if you want it sold by the time school ends.
4. Know who your target audience is. The fastest-purchasing age group right now is the millennial age group, who are 18 to 34. These people don’t want to buy their parent’s or grandparent’s house, so if you are a baby boomer and you have wallpaper or blue carpet, that’s not going to go over well with a millennial buyer. They want clean, modern, and crisp spaces.
