Selling a house can be a tough job if you don’t know where to begin with. Doing the job yourself can be pretty intimidating, not to mention you want to get the best value for a place that has being both your home and a nest of memories. If you manage to overcome this stage, the reward is a home that really fits your style.
So if you want to sell your house, we definitely recommend hiring a real estate professional. Having experience in the real estate industry can make the difference between selling your house for an under market value, or making the most out of your sell.
Without further to do, these tips will help you stay on track while selling your house:
- 1. Find the right value
Hiring an assessor to determine the actual value of your property can be a good choice if you’re not sure of your house compares to the overtime value of the properties in your neighborhood. Don’t fall for lowering your price just to fit what a singular buyer wants. Keep your options open.
- 2. Invest in repairs = Increase overall value
Some people would overlook the fact that investing in the little details can have huge returns. You can invest $3,000 and sell your house for $10,000 more. Change the carpets, cover holes and make sure everything is built-to-last. Having a freshly painted house can make quite an impression. Buyers would know you really cared for your house and that would increase the perceived value.
- 3. Leave a good lasting impression
This one is quite self-explanatory. A clean house would make a lasting impression and can have a definitive impact on your buyers. Just don’t overdo it. Having a simple decoration with lot of blank spaces can help your buyers imagine your house as their own. Also, be careful about strong smells like cinnamon, or lavender. Not everyone seems to like them.
- 4. Project the right image in the housing market
Hire a professional photographer and post your best pictures. Also, check your description with a friend and write a striking copy. Remember to keep it simple yet powerful. Nobody likes when the advertised product looks different in reality.
- 5. Involve your family and assign different duties
Make sure the family group gets involved in the whole process. Having different perspectives and insights can uncover new selling strategies. Also, make the most out of your Real Estate agent. Speak up. Ask questions. Listen to your potential buyers and address their doubts. It might be exhausting, but it will have a deep impact on your final sale.
