When to Sell 7

Have Patience

There’s nothing more exciting than listing your home on the market for the first time, eager to see what offers come in. Especially when your house is at its finest. You believe, this is the price that is going to attract so many buyers, and that no other house can can beat this price. Moreover, no other house looks like your house and the curb appeal is unparalleled.

However, not all buyers see your house they way you see it. It takes time for any offer to come knocking on your door. So, if you set a price for your house, and don’t immediately receive offers, be patient. Give it a little time before you do anything drastic, like lower your price or expensive remodeling, because you could miss out on the profit you could have made. So, here are some tips on how to be patient when listing your home on the market.

Don’t Control Both
Some people like to sell and negotiate a home on their own, without the help of any realtors. While this can save you money, it can also make you anxious and impatient. This is because you are controlling the whole selling process and can easily see what’s going on in the market. All that power and control can make it harder for you to focus on anything else.

Therefore, don’t control both, instead hire a real estate agent or a broker to handle the rest, while you sit back and relax.

Make Small Repairs
Another way to get your mind off things is to make small repairs around the house. Fix or replace anything that’s broken, leaking or cracked and don’t let the small things go unnoticed, thinking no one can tell.

So, distract yourself by oiling squeaky doors, patching up cracks in the walls, or cleaning up the front yard. These small repairs won’t cost you much and can give you a piece of mind when waiting for offers to come. Also, the future homeowner will appreciate the gesture and not have to worry about doing these small repairs themselves.

Dress Up Your Home
Lastly, the best way to get through playing the waiting game is by investing in home staging. As you’re patiently waiting for your house to get offers, you can spend time personalizing and styling the house. This way, your house can make a lasting impression when someone walks inside. It can also give you a piece of mind because once they see how beautiful the home is, the offers start flooding in.

Lower The Price
If all else fails, and you’ve see no activity for your home, then this might be the time to consider lowering the price of the home. Just mark down a couple hundred dollars and see where that takes you.

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!
