Achieving Real Estate Harmony

What’s the most trickiest part about selling a house? Is it choosing what website to sell your house on or is it how to make the perfect model home? A lot of people would say it’s choosing the best price to sell the home at. This is because most homeowners make the mistake of overpricing or underselling their houses. Therefore, by following these four easy tips to sell a house quickly in the market, buyers and sellers can achieve real estate harmony.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS MEAN EVERYTHING
Imagine you are a potential buyer, as you drive up into the lot you’re greeted by an ungroomed front yard, trash everywhere, and weeds for grass. Immediately, your smile drops and you don’t want to think about what the inside might look like.

This mistake is made by most sellers. They forget or don’t know about curb appeal and believe the asking price will sell itself. But by taking the time asking professionals, friends, and even family members what changes can be made to improve the home’s curb appeal will draw buyers in. This will also set it apart from others in the market.

Also, don’t be afraid to put a little money into cleaning up the house. A clean house will attract buyers who might want a tour.

MAKE SMALL UPGRADES
Speaking of putting a little money into the house, try to make small upgrades to the home. We say small because while an upgrade adds value to the house, it depreciates the price. Similar to a brand new car when you drive it off the lot.

Therefore, make small upgrades like changing the toilet or kitchen sink. But this doesn’t mean ignore necessary repairs, like a leaky roof. Those will get you in trouble with a home inspector or mortgage company if not taken care of.

Just by making small upgrades like these, the future homeowner will appreciate the gesture and take it into consideration when deciding.

MAKE IT MODEL HOME READY
If you’ve successfully followed steps one and two, then you’re ready to create a model home. This is the part that most sellers overlook because when they showcase their homes, they forget that home isn’t the same home for others. Meaning, your family’s beloved cat shrine will be creepy to others, so please put it away. Renting a storage unit will benefit you and allow you declutter all your belongings. Creating an open space will help potential buyers imagine a place of their own.

THE PRICE IS RIGHT
Here comes the tricky part, pricing your property competitively in the market. Many seller, who don’t have the knowledge, can make the mistake and sell their home too low. Or get too excited and overprice it. Whether this be you, it would be best to consider hiring a professional.

This is where a realtor comes in. Realtors are trained for this kind of work. They do all the hard work, so you don’t have to. They also can price your home at its true value so no time or money is wasted. Realtors are also knowledgeable because they know the area you’re intending to sell in, very well.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your home will be sold at the right price and with ease, all while achieving real estate harmony.

Stress is one of the largest concerns when selling a home. Staging, managing finances and documents, and simultaneously juggling the rest of your life can be completely draining. However, one thing is certain about selling your home: it’s a lot easier when you have a solid real estate agent to handle it. Remember, No-One Works Harder to Sell your Home more than Joe!
