While we’ve been in a residential real estate seller’s market for an extended time, it doesn’t mean you don’t need to sell your home tips. In one way, learning how to sell your home for a higher price and/or faster, is more important now than ever. A 5% increase in the price of a $1,000,000 home means you get $50,000 more. But a 5% increase in a $1,500,000 home means you get $75,000 more.
In other words, the more expensive your home, the more selling it for a higher price pays off.
Try These Tips for Selling Your Home
There are many factors that can affect the price of your home or how quickly it sells. Those factors can be different for different homes. Maybe not all the tips below will apply to your home, but they will at least give you an idea of what works.
Improve the Curb Appeal of the Home
Many potential buyers decide within minutes of seeing it from the outside whether or not they like a home. It’s called curb appeal and it very much affects the overall experience of your home. From landscaping to upgrading your home’s facade, just about anything you do to improve curb appeal can payoff. On a day-to-day basis, you need to keep your home and yard as neat and clean as possible.
If at all possible, you should professionally stage your home. The benefit of doing so goes beyond helping you sell your home. It also helps you move out of your home too. Part of staging is getting rid of the things in your home that can turn off buyers. we mean crowded closets, cluttered basements, and all the travel souvenirs you have in the living room. The benefits of staging will more than make up for the cost of putting things in storage.
Think about when you bought a home. The one you chose somehow stood out from the rest. It looked good from the outside (curb appeal). It looked great inside (staging). And you were able to check it out online, see videos and have all the pertinent information at your disposal. That last part is marketing and it can help your home stand out from the rest.
Find the Right Agent
Here’s the thing, from pricing to the lighting in your home, there are way more nuances to get the most value for its sale than we could ever cover in a single post. However, by finding and retaining the best agent for your home. you will have it all covered. Look for an agent with a proven and active (things change quickly) record in your neighbourhood. One who is tech-savvy. One who will make sure to optimize and leverage the three points above to their greatest advantage.
