FIRST-TIME HOME SELLER TIPS
Selling your home for the first time can be very stressful. Selling a home requires careful consideration and expert advice. Here are some important factors to consider when listing your home for sale:
Accurate Pricing – Pricing is the single most important marketing tool. A reputable real estate agent will know how to price to get you the best price possible for your home. An overpriced listing will sit on the market and become stale, which can lead to low-ball offers and can end up costing you money.
Staging – Create the best experience you can for a buyer by staging the home to look it’s best. Adding a fresh coat of paint is also an effective way to position your home for a successful sale.
What Day to List – A knowledgeable real estate agent will know the best and worst days to list a home on MLS. There are many factors to consider when picking the day – holidays, community events, time of year, etc.
Professional Photography – Photos are the first thing people will look at. Before they step foot in your home, they will want to see photos of the property online. Having professional photographers capture the essence of your home is key to getting as much attention on the property as possible.
Flexibility – Being able to accommodate for showings is extremely important. Within reason, make your house as accessible as possible for the duration of the time it is listed on MLS.
With the right real estate agent on your side, all of these factors will be taken into consideration to help get you the best price possible, in the shortest possible time!
