There are four main things you must do to sell your home quickly and for top dollar.
If you want to sell your home as quickly as possible and for the highest possible price, here are the most important tips you must remember.
First, get your home prepped before it hits the market, meaning make any needed repairs and get it staged. If you wait to do this after you get any negative feedback, your home sale won’t be as successful. If you take a few extra weeks to get your house ready on the front end, it will sell for more on the back end.
Don’t spend any money on your house until you talk to an agent.
Buyers are pretty sensitive in today’s market, and if they see a bunch of small issues within your home, they’ll add up to one giant red flag. Think of it this way: If you see an issue you don’t feel like fixing, a potential buyer might feel the same way when they see it.
Next, don’t wait too long into the process to bring in an agent. Their job is to help you sell for the most money possible, so the sooner you hire one, the sooner they can tell you exactly what you must do to accomplish this. Specifically, don’t spend any money on your house until you talk to an agent. We sell more houses than anyone in the Midlands, which means we know what buyers like. We caution our client not to spend money on upgrades they won’t get a good return on.
Also, if your house is more than a decade old, get a pre-inspection. This way, if you find any issue you weren’t aware of, you can take care of it before it scares away any buyers.
Lastly, don’t overprice your home. It’s no big deal to shoot for a reasonably high price, but if you go any higher than that, you’re missing out on good buyers. Not only will you miss out on good buyers, but your house will also sit on the market for months at a time and cause other buyers to wonder what’s wrong with it.
