    Get it SOLD!

    May 07, 2018

    Ready to make a move? Have a certain figure in mind that you need to sell for? Depending on your price point, you might be able to get a little more than what you may expect.

     

    1. ATTRACT MORE BUYERS

    When there isn't much interest in a property, buyer's get nervous and suspicious that there may be something wrong with the home that they may be missing, and that could sometimes be further from the truth. You want to price your home competitively to entice more showings. When you price your home right under the market standard, it leads to more showings, more appointments, and more excitement around your home. 

     

    2. PRICE IT TO MOVE IT

    You want to make sure your price gets buyers interested in your property. Even if they end up paying more than asking, the excitement from feeling like they are getting a deal and landing your home sets the right mood for buyers to WANT your property. Always price the home in a way that is going to appeal to a large audience. Pricing a home at $399,900 can generally generate more foot traffic than one listed at $400,000. Advertising a home for sale that is listed for slightly under the market value can garner a lot of interest, which can lead to the home selling for more than what the seller originally wanted. 

     

    3. START UP THE BUZZ

    Make sure you work with an agent that has the ability to start up a coming soon buzz around your home. You want to let the market know that your home is going to be coming soon, and start up conversation and interest. This gives time for word about your home to spread to get more foot traffic and competition on your house.

     

    4. PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS ARE KEY

    It's without question that to get over market value for your home, it has to be in tip-top condition. It's the first impression of your home and how a buyer decides to see or not see a home. A professional photographer will make that difference. Our Job is to get the buyer to the home to see if it works for them. If they don't like the pictures enough to see the home, you've missed an opportunity.

     

    5. CREATE A DEADLINE

    Have your agent set a deadline for offers, say a Monday or Tuesday, right after a weekend of doing open houses. This can generate a sense of urgency around your home, letting buyers think there is a large amount of interest and to get offers in quickly. Setting them up with this state of urgency generally makes them want to put their best foot forward with their first offer.

     6. SWEETEN THE DEAL

    To generate a little more excitement and foot traffic, you can offer an incentive for whomever purchases the home. If your neighborhood has new builds still being built, I recommend you offer to pay for the buyer's closing costs because more than likely, the builder is offering that incentive. It levels the playing field a little more.
