#1 – Find Out How Much Similar Homes Are Selling For In Your Area

Many times, people make their pricing decisions based on how much they paid for or invested into their home. Others will base their asking price on what they owe on the property. This can be an expensive mistake.

Overpriced homes take longer to sell and eventually net the seller less money. Consult with a professional real estate agent. They can assist you in pricing your home correctly from the beginning. You want to get the best possible price and terms, but there are many factors that will set guidelines for how much you can get for your property.

These factors include:

  • Market conditions
  • Interest rates
  • Sale prices of other properties in your area
  • Rising and falling of supply and/or demand
  • If the seller needs to sell the property quickly

#2 – Set Your Property Up For Success

First impressions are worth more than you may think. Before you put your house on the market, it needs to be in “show” condition. What used to be an easy sale is much more difficult today. Why? Because the vast majority of today’s home buyers turn to the Internet to search for homes way before ever stepping foot in a home. This causes the way you advertise your home to change.

I often say, “Your first showing is no longer in-person, it’s online!

Make sure you have professional photos taken of the home, and A LOT of them. Also, use online video tours to differentiate yourself from the competition. Create a narrated or music video tour of the home (and neighborhood) to showcase it online. Also, experience shows that for every $100 in repairs that your home needs, a buyer will deduct $300-$500 from their offer. Therefore, you have to make sure these repairs a done before putting your house on the market. Thoroughly clean and prepare your home before you put it on the market if you want top dollar.
