2. What Price Should I sell My Home For?

The goal is to sell your house for the highest possible price. You may even have a number in mind. But, how do you determine if that number is reasonable? You may be concerned that:

  • If you list your house too high, few buyers, if any, will see it.
  • If your price is too low, you could end up leaving thousands of dollars on the table.

A top mistake sellers make is overpricing their home. Pricing it right from the beginning is the key to selling it. The market will always get you what it’s worth even if you price it a little bit lower to begin with.

I’m an expert at creating a pricing strategy that will pique the interest of qualified buyers – and set the stage to get you the highest sale price possible. I’m also a specialist in the local market. I know what properties like yours sell for, and can get yours sold at the high end of that range.

I begin by getting to know your property and all its desirable features. Then I do an analysis to determine its Current Market Value. That value is based, in large part, on what similar houses in the area have sold for recently.

Special features such as hardwood floors, a newly renovated kitchen or bathroom, or a beautiful backyard patio can have an impact on how quickly a property sells and for what price. I’ll help you understand all the factors that go into setting the list price, and ensuring it is just right for the marketplace and your goals.

3. How Do I Attract Qualified Buyers?

Today’s buyers want “move in” ready. Simply painting your home yields the highest return on investment. This is a must before putting your home on the market. Hire a professional painter if you don’t want to DIY.

Once you decide to list your home, you have to think of it as a product. It will no longer be your home. Most sellers are emotionally attached to their homes, therefore bringing in a home stager or a realtor who is a home stager is part of creating the product. Home staging makes the buyer think “I have to have this home.” Staging creates an emotional response from the buyer. A staged home helps buyers visualize the property as a future home. This is critical in getting the highest sales price. According to the National Association of Realtors, 25% of buyers increase their offer between 1% to 5% on a staged home. Staging is an optional cost to the seller but is encouraged to get a higher sales price.

I can get the word out about your listing to all the right people. I know how to attract serious buyers – so a good offer comes in quickly.

To achieve that success, I’ll implement the appropriate marketing plan. After all, there’s more to selling a house than hammering a For Sale sign on the front lawn. I’ll work closely with you to create a marketing plan which may include some or all of the following:

  • Professional photography and gathering the details on your property;
  • Videography
  • Handle all calls and requests for showing appointments;
  • Scheduling and promoting an Open House to attract a multitude of buyers;
  • Leveraging the internet and social media to promote your listing on 200+ websites;
  • Creating effective marketing materials such as printed flyers or mailers, targeted email marketing
  • Uploading your listing to MLS – the Multiple Listing Service that real estate agents and buyers use to search for properties;
  • Cancellation Guarantee-cancel if you are not happy, with no monetary penalties.

My job is to get the right buyers to see your house, fall in love with it, and make a good offer.

Marketing matters, even in a seller’s market! 

4. How Do I Handle Viewings Of My Home?

As a seller preparing your home for showings is essential. Here are a few things you can do to make viewings more successful:

  • Make sure your house is neat and clean by decluttering. I can recommend a cleaning lady if you want one.
  • Remove personal items such as family photos, diplomas, etc. This makes it easier for buyers to imagine themselves living in the house.
  • Find a place to go, such as a park or shopping mall. Buyers are more comfortable if they can view the property without you there.
  • Remove your pets. You can take them for a walk, or to a local pet sitting service or kennel.
  • Ensure the walkway leading up to your house is clear.
