You’ve probably heard this one a thousand times. When people pull up to your house they are instantly going to either get a good or bad feeling. You need your potential buyers to get that warm and fuzzy home sweet home feeling when they arrive. Spend a few bucks and grab a few potted plants, mulch and grass seed at your local home depot. Small cheap things like that will dramatically change the appearance of your house. Also make sure to mow your grass and pull any weeds.🌿
Price it Right
From day 1 your home needs to be priced correctly. A great agent will be able to help advise you, however you should do a bit of homework on your own. What are other houses in the neighborhood actually selling for? Run some comps, and don’t price too high. Many people go for the highest imaginable price, hoping to snag a buyer. However, most of the time, this only leads to impending price cuts. And while you are finagling with price, your listing is dropping further and further down the line. In addition, repetitive price drops will make you look desperate or give the impression that there is something wrong with the house. By starting off with a well-researched price, you will be able to hit the market and be competitive with other listings in your area.
Highlight Your Neighborhood
When a person buys a home, they aren’t just buying the structure, they are buying the location and lifestyle. Showcase ALL of the things that make your neighborhood unique and inviting. Put together a packet to give to people viewing your house. Include information about recreational activities, restaurants and commute times. Let them know about parks, lakes, and anything you love about the area yourself. Is the neighborhood tightly knit? Block parties and holiday events? Make sure to highlight that as well! Most people are looking for a great home in a wonderful atmosphere. Highlighting the area can be just as important as highlighting the home itself!
