I’m going to tell you the top five things that you need to know when selling your property.
The first thing you need to do is work with great people. You want to make sure that they’re ethical, experienced, and have your best interest at heart.
Now, the second thing you want to do is hire a professional inspector to give you a guide on what you should and shouldn’t be repaired. Foundation, structural, roof, electrical, water heater, mechanical, HVAC. Those are the essential components you need to be focused on first.
And that leads me into number three, to not make unnecessary improvements. Understand one thing. You’re selling the property and the likes of the buyer may not be your own. Don’t go painting your walls yellow, green, white, blue, or red. Hire a professional designer to take care of that for you.
The fourth thing you’re going to want to do is clean your house and remove as much clutter as possible. Professionally cleaning and staging your home is essential, allowing the buyer to feel right at home.
Now the fifth and final thing is pricing your home correctly. Bringing your ethical real estate agent into the picture now is critical. Allow the recent comparables in your area, to dictate the strategy and pricing. Are these properties selling for $40,000 over asking? $60,000 below asking? Or are they simply just buying for whatever you have listed?
So there you have it, five proven strategies to getting you the best results when selling your house.
