How to Sell For Top Dollar in Today’s Market
It’s true that values are rising and select homes are moving quickly, but there are still too many homes on the market that buyers are not interested in. Have you wondered why?
Today’s buyer has more tools and information than ever before, so they often have a better pulse on the market than sellers do. Since most buyers start their search online before they ever contact a Realtor, it’s important to have a strategy that goes way beyond MLS. You want your house to shine in every photo that goes on the internet and you want those photos to be everywhere buyers look for homes.
A huge mistake sellers make is putting a for sale sign up in the yard and posting some candid pictures that got taken with a camera phone. Another mistake is to hire a agent who does just that.
If you want to get top dollar for your home and sell it in record time, you don’t need to spend a lot of money, but it’s crucial to take these steps:
- address deferred maintenance
- clear out the clutter
- clean, clean, clean
- create curb appeal
- stage for better showings
- photograph the home in its best light
- market the home aggressively
- have access to knowledge and resources that will increase your bottom line
