Have you been considering the sale of your home? Have you ever wondered why some homes fly off the market while others seem to linger? Today I want to share with you my insider tips and the 3 things you should consider if you want to sell your home for top dollar!
How to Sell Your Home for Top Dollar
- Preparation for the market. You never get a second chance to make a great first impression and it’s absolutely critical that you enter the market putting your best foot forward.! This starts at the curb. What might a potential buyer see when they approach your home? Does it appear to be well-maintained? Is it well-lit and welcoming? And what about inside? Is it bright, warm, and exceptionally clean? Do the rooms reflect their intended use? Have clutter and unnecessary objects been packed away? I commit to advising my sellers fully and assist them by providing them with a comprehensive pre-listing checklist to make this process easier and less time consuming. I also have a solid team of amazing service professionals who will assist in getting the job done!
- Presentation to the market. How do we get the word out? It’s a multi-platform approach. It is essential that your home is expertly promoted and proactively shared not only with potential buyers but also with those who are in the position to inform and/or refer them. In addition to the tried and true methods, which include my signature open house system, direct mail, and print advertising, I also incorporate the best of digital and social media marketing to expand our reach globally. Your home should be featured everywhere online, and my sellers will find their home on hundreds of popular websites as well as on all major social networks, with promoted posts and targeted ads. You’ll appreciate the dazzling professional photography and video I provide, a standard of my practice!
- Pricing at the market. Without proper pricing, all efforts are wasted! I commit to providing you with a thorough, honest, and comprehensive analysis of current market conditions and the key economic indicators that may affect the value of your home. In addition to examining what has most recently sold, we will also review current levels of inventory, pending sales, buyer trends and mortgage rates, all of which have impact. I will never mislead you as to the value of your home. My experience has shown me that a well-priced home sells faster and ultimately nets the seller more!
