So you’re looking for a guide to selling your home. But you needed it sold yesterday. First, don’t panic. Take a deep breath. With the right professional help, you got this! Here are a few tips and tricks to get your started:
Guide to Selling Your Home
1. Price it right
The experts at HGTV suggest making a bold move when it comes to pricing: “Find out what your home is worth, then shave 15 to 20 percent off the price. You’ll be stampeded by buyers with multiple bids, (even in the worst markets), and they’ll bid up the price over what it’s worth. It takes real courage and most sellers just don’t want to risk it, but it’s the single best strategy to sell a home in today’s market.” This approach isn’t for every seller, but it’s worth considering if you need your home to move fast.
2. Amp up your curb appeal
Your home’s first impression may be its only impression. A Texas A&M survey found that curb appeal increases sales prices by up to 17%. And you don’t need to spend a fortune to up your home’s game. Lush green grass is huge for potential buyers, so be willing to raise your water bill for a while. Spruce up your landscaping. Fix anything outside that could make your home look rundown, like:
- Missing shingles
- Rusty gutters
- A fading paint job
- A stained driveway
These fixes are relatively inexpensive, and can make a big difference in appeal to potential buyers.
3. Hire an expert
When you need your home to sell now, don’t go at it alone. Hire an expert with years of experience to guide you through the process. Working with a seasoned realtor takes the burden off the homeowner, allowing you to focus your energy on what really matters: your family, your life, and preparing for your big move.
