Selling your home can be a stressful and emotional process. Aside from the actual packing and moving process, you also have to sell your property. This can be time consuming and frustrating if not approached correctly.
Here at The Talons Group we are passionate about making the home buying and selling process as stress free and easy as possible. Our experienced professionals want to assist you in any way possible when selling your home to ensure that you get the most out of it that you can. Here are the do’s and don’ts of home selling:
Do market your home
Putting a sign in your yard that states your home is for sale is not enough to attract home buyers There are a variety of methods for home selling that you can take advantage of in order to get the word out that your home is for sale. Aside from popular real estate sites that many people home shop on, your real estate agent may know of other platforms that will help to promote your listed property.
Getting the word out about your property is vital. The more eyes that see your property, the more potential offers you will have rolling in.
Do offer house showings
If interested home shoppers are not able to look and explore the space that they are looking to purchase, they might not take the bait. A home is a large purchase that is thought out and considered in detail.
When home shoppers are given the ability to look through a property, they are able to envision themselves living inside and forming a life. Home showings will also give those that are not on home shopping platforms to see that your house is for sale and learn more about it.
Do put your best foot forward
If there are small home revisions that can be easily completed, you may want to make them prior to putting your home on the market. Small changes such as removing wallpaper or painting a wall of two can not only increase your home value but also drastically improve the way that viewers see your home.
Presenting your home in the best light will help to draw in more home shoppers and make the home more convenient to purchase as less changes will need to be made.
Don’t set the price too high
There are many consequences of pricing your home too high. Besides being frustrating for you when offers are not rolling in, pricing your home can cause your house to sit on the market longer, make you deal with price changes and drops and issues if an appraisal has to be done before someone wishes to purchase your home.
Don’t ignore low ball offers
While low ball offers may look like someone simply trying to scam you of money, they should not be ignored completely. Low ball overall price offers can often have other stipulations that may actually benefit you.
For example, say someone offers 10,000 below the asking price but is able to pay cash or move in within a convenient time frame, this may be worth the lost dollars
Home selling shouldn’t be a big stress. When you are selling a home, you are also going through other life changes that you should prioritize. Working with a reliable real estate agent will help to minimize issues that you may face if you approach the home selling process alone.
