Once you have made the decision that you want to sell your home, a shift in the perception of how you view your home will make it a lot easier for you to make smart decisions when it comes to setting a price, getting your home show-ready, and dealing with offers as they start to come in. Remember, how you see your home (filled with many fond memories) and the way a potential Buyer sees your home are likely to be two very different scenarios.
Walk through your home with an objective eye, and pretend that you are a potential Buyer. How does your home feel? How does it present? Are there things that need to be done prior to hosting viewings with potential Buyers? Is there anything that will make your home stand out from the rest? Now is the time to capitalize on your investment!
A savvy REALTOR® will help you to assess your home’s market readiness and will offer advice on what to do and what not to do, in order to appeal to the largest target audience, while also minimizing the impact on your pocket book. In some cases, a bit of de-cluttering, a rearrangement of your furniture and good old elbow grease are the tickets to achieving your goals. On the other hand, a fresh coat of paint, a cheerful revamp of your bathroom, or some new landscaping is all that may be needed. Or perhaps your home needs a professional stager. Statistics prove that a show-ready home spends less time on the market and can help to generate higher offers, which translates to a better return when you close the deal. Choosy Buyers will gravitate to the home that has its’ best foot forward.
