Our #1 tip is to find an agent that can help you execute all of the steps and get your home sold!
When selling we suggest…
- Getting professional pictures done: Professional real estate pictures are crucial in showcasing properties to potential buyers and attracting interest. High-quality photographs emphasize the best features of a property, providing a visual representation that enables buyers to envision themselves living in the space. Utilizing professional photography services ensures proper lighting, composition, and post-processing techniques are employed, resulting in eye-catching and appealing images. These images make a lasting impression on potential buyers and are essential for standing out and closing deals successfully.
- Set the right price: Determining the right price when selling your home is an essential step in the real estate process. An accurately priced home will attract more potential buyers and ultimately lead to a faster sale.
- Offering virtual tours for out of town buyers: We have SO many out of town buyers that are unable to visit town, often unable to visit until move in day. Virtual tours for out of town buyers are so helpful and can provide insight to those in town that want to go back and view the home again. These can be done on your personal phone to send out or professionally.
- Being flexible with showings: We understand it can be difficult to work showings into your busy schedule but being flexible and having your home prepared at all times can make a big difference for those coming from out of town, or those in a time crunch.
- Think about home staging: Home staging is the process of preparing a property for sale by enhancing its visual appeal to potential buyers. This can include decluttering, rearranging furniture, adding attractive accessories, and creating a welcoming atmosphere to showcase the property’s best features. The goal of home staging is to make the home stand out in the competitive real estate market and to ultimately sell the property faster and at a higher price. By strategically presenting the home in its best light, home staging can help buyers envision themselves living in the space, making it more likely for them to make an offer. Professional home stagers are often hired to ensure that the property is presented in the most appealing way possible, but homeowners can also learn staging techniques to improve their chances of a successful sale.
