COMPETING IN THIS "PRICING WAR AND BEAUTY CONTEST"
Putting a home on the market can be stressful, and some homeowners have a hard time making objective decisions when it matters most.
- Price it right. Recent university reasearch has found that homeowners consistently overestimate the market value of their homes by 5 to 10 percent.
- Take advantage of your market debut. Pricing your home competitively from the get-go increases the odds of a quick sale.
- Put your best foot forward. We recommend that you perform repairs to correct visible flaws. Also, staging your home is a "must" these days. Stage your home so it feels more spacious and potential buyers can picture themselves living there. We have a staging professional on staff, and consult with local interior designers to keep up with the latest staging trends.
- Sweeten the deal. Sellers who agree to pay the buyer's closing costs can make it easier for first-timers to obtain financing. Offering to throw in appliances, upgrade allowances or other perks could also swing a buyer's decision your direction.
