Home Sellers Guide
WHAT ALWAYS WORKS TO GET A HOME SOLD – NO MATTER THE MARKET CONDITIONS?
Here are the top six ways to get a home sold, no matter what the real estate market is doing:
•A home that is –priced right – based on local and current data – will sell. If there is no action in the first two weeks then you have a clue as to what buyers think of the price.
• As a Seller, you need to make your homes move-in ready with all “todo” list items addressed and all major systems functioning.
• Sellers should stage the home so each room looks inviting and picture-perfect, allowing would-be homebuyers to envision themselves living in the home happily.
• Sellers need flexibility – you must be open to negotiation with homebuyers and be able to accept a revised timeline for closing/settlement, etc. – This is necessary for us to find a buyer for your home. Remember, even a low-ball offer gets the conversation started, do not be offended with the first offer that you receive. Welcome it as a starting point!
• Sellers have to make their home available for showings at any time, within reason, to increase the chances of finding a homebuyer.
• Identifying the purchase offer with the strongest buyer profile (mortgage preapproval, serious earnest money, quick timeline, etc.) and not just the offer with the highest price can mean a closing/settlement is more likely.
