How to Sell Your Property
1) See what your home looks like online
Sellers Do a quick audit of the way your home is represented.
Contact your agent with any questions or thoughts on marketing.
2) Is your home seriously overpriced?
Sellers make sure the listing price is based on the current market value,
and not on your belief about your home and its value.
If homes are overpriced, serious buyers in the market will either:
a) Never come see the home because it is overpriced.
b) Not come see the home unless seller drops price.
*The first 30 days your home is on the market are vital to selling your home.
3) There are a lot of fish in the sea – I only have to find one.
Buyers are in the business of finding a home – only one –
that inspires them and works for their needs and lifestyle.
Sellers don’t take shortcuts in representing your home.
4) If Buyers nitpick house, they probably like it
This is how buyers “try on” a sellers home – take a place that may not
be perfectly move-in ready, and figure out how to make it work for them.
5) The staging bar is high, really high
Data repeatedly shows that staged homes sell faster.
a) What furniture to get rid of?
b) Which improvements get the most bank for your buck.
c) What paint, flooring, finish materials appeal to the broadest buyer segment.
