I have five tips to share with you that will help you entice buyers and sell your home in record time.
What five tips do you need to follow to entice buyers and sell your home in record time?
First, stage your home properly. Staging isn’t for everyone, but if you have a property with an unusual or small living space, it can help give buyers an idea of how their furniture would fit in your home.
The challenge most sellers run into with staging, though, is the cost. Professional stagers can cost up to thousands of dollars and require you to sign a contract that lasts for months when you’re trying to sell your property much sooner than that. One way to remedy this is to provide virtual staging for your home, which allows buyers to see your home online the same way they would as if they were there in person.
The second tip is to spruce up your curb appeal. When your home is on the market, you need to make sure its exterior looks clean for buyers driving by it. If possible, upgrade your landscaping.
Third, brighten up the interior living space. No buyer wants to walk into a dark, dreary house. Every time you leave your house for the day and know your agent has a showing coming up, open the blinds, fix the lights, and do anything else you can to brighten things up.
Fourth, promote any energy-efficient items the home has. If you have programmable or solar thermostats, don’t hesitate to advertise that. If your monthly electricity bill is low, tell people about it. Certain buyers will be very interested in that when making a decision whether to make you an offer or not.
Lastly, build buzz in advance. It’s amazing how many buyers you can attract from local networking. My team has a marketing plan in place for all our buyers to prospect in their neighborhoods so hundreds of buyers know about their listing once it hits the market.
