Want to Sell Your Home Fast, For The Best Possible Price Guaranteed?
Ask any real estate company and they’ll tell you: houses that sell within the first five weeks of their listing are most likely to achieve their asking price.
The longer your house lingers on the real estate listings, the more pressure you’ll feel to knock the price down – and the less likely it is to sell without some incentives from you, the home seller.
Even if you don’t have to sell your house fast, the best way of getting the price that you want for it is to give the job to a professional, and let his or her experience guide you. A real estate agent knows all there is to know about what selling strategies will work best in your area. They can help you set the right selling price for your property and offer concrete suggestions for improving the chances of a sale.
And remember this…
The decision to sell your house wasn’t made on the spur of the moment. It may have been spurred by the desire to live in a nicer home, the need to move for a new job or the necessity to get a handle on out-of-control costs.
Whatever the reasons for the decision, you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you before you’re ready to actually sell your house on the market if you want to get the best possible price for your property. Selling houses is your Real Estate Agent’s business. He or she will have easy access to the selling prices of houses in your area that are comparable to yours. In addition, their experience will have given them a ‘feel’ for the right price that can’t be duplicated by a few hours or days of research. If their suggestion is completely out of line with the price you think is reasonable, talk to a few more agents. If they tell you the same thing, believe them.
The 7 big costly mistakes people make when selling their home and how to avoid them:
1. Setting the price too high
Every agent will tell you the most important factor in selling a home is to price it right. Experienced real estate agents strongly suggest starting from the average price in your area and working from there!
2. Not considering the appearance factor
If the home needs sprucing up, get that done first. Fresh paint, trimmed bushes, mowed lawns and immaculate cleanliness are all important in making your home attractive and saleable!
3. Failing to keep the home tidy
Be ready to show the house at a moment’s notice. Make sure you pack up the junk and rent a storage unit as clutter will erode the potential equity your house will bring!
4. Not staying out of the road
When the house is being shown, be as unobtrusive as possible. Let your agent do the selling.
5. Not understanding the offer made by a potential buyer
It is important for the seller to review the offers carefully, and to fully understand the purchase contract!
6. Failing to get an evaluation
This is a big mistake. It is important to thoroughly assess the value and condition of your home in order to price it effectively and to avoid unpleasant surprises down the road!
7. Not providing complete information to potential buyers
Withholding information is a serious mistake made by home sellers. It may be tempting to hide, any potential problems, but it is likely those problems will be uncovered as the sales process moves forward!
