If you’re driving around The Meadows in February and March, you may have noticed an increase in real estate signs. It’s that time of year, traditionally this is the peak season to buy or sell a home. With housing inventory low and prices on the high side, the market is on your side if you’re selling. There are few things to help you get your home sold quickly.
Hire a Realtor
Ever heard the term, “leave it to the experts.” Selling your home is definitely one of those cases where the statement is true. For starters, a local Realtor knows the market, how to price, stage and negotiate the sale of your home. They also know other Realtors who have buyers looking for a house just like yours. Moving is stressful enough, let a Realtor help you sell.
We all hate it, but let’s be honest, we all have clutter. It just happens; whether you have kids or not, you collect stuff. If you’re thinking of selling it’s best to get rid of it or at least put it in storage. You want your home to look as big and spacious as possible. The bonus of selling a home is that you can get rid of stuff that’s been sitting around – maybe since you moved in.
Stage Your Home
Ask your realtor about hiring a staging expert. They know exactly how to arrange furniture and decorate your home so that it’s inviting to buyers.
This is probably the toughest part for any homeowner. You don’t want to put away family pictures or significant personal items. But the goal when showing your home to potential buyers is that they can picture themselves in your home. On the bright side, look at it as a chance to get a jump on packing.
The front of your house is the first impression. You need to trim shrubs, get rid of debris and plant flowers. You want your buyers to fall in love with your home before they even go through the front door.
The real estate season is heating up and hopefully these tips help you sell your home quickly and without too much stress.
