Here Are Our Top 3 Secrets
Whether we are in a Buyer's or Seller's market it seems that certain homes can effortlessly attract packed open houses and multiple offers. Do you think it's a coincidence? It actually takes careful planning. If you're looking for a team with successful, tried and true marketing strategies, give us a call!
Homes rarely sell on their own for top dollar without a little preparation. It entails a whole lot more than just putting a “For Sale” sign on your front lawn or uploading a few random photos of your place—especially if you're angling for the most profit.
Investing some time and effort upfront to prepare your home for showings will generally increase the likelihood of receiving offers soon after your home is listed. Homes that are clean, appealing, and in tip-top condition sell for more than properties in less desirable shape. Staging is a benefit that we include in our services, and it allows buyers to imagine themselves in the home, shows off its good features and hides its flaws, turns weird spaces into usable spaces, and makes the home look significantly better in photos. Home staging is not the same as decorating. Decorating is about personal style, while staging makes your home appealing to the largest pool of buyers.
As experienced real estate agents, we often see sellers fantasizing about their ideal list price, even though it doesn't align with our current real estate market. Most homeowners have some emotional attachment to their home, and they think theirs is worth more than their neighbours.
With all the tools and apps available, buyers are smart and they see comparable homes in your area online every day, gathering their own data. These buyers and their agents compare house prices based on facts. Most banks will order an appraisal when a buyer is financing, and the appraisers use the same comps we do… remember that.
When it comes time to list your home we will perform a comparative market analysis (CMA) and give you an accurate up-to-date value of your home.
