How do I sell my home quickly?
This video shares some good ideas on selling a home quickly.
Access - Many buyers will be wary if they can not get into a property. Access can begin with the MLS listing, get as many professional photos (I work with a photographer) as the MLS allows on the listing, and ensure the listing is complete and accurate. After that, the easier it is to show a home, the easier it'll be to get buyers through the front door. Homes can and do get under contract without pre-offer showings on occasion, but homes with good access typically generate more interest more quickly.
Staging - Staging doesn't necessarily have to go all out in our market right now, but clean and clutter free will do a lot to help a home sell. On slower moving or high end properties, proper staging can make a big difference. Clean is a priority for any home. I'm happy to take look at homes and provide suggestions to help them sell quicker. I also have access to professional home stagers if needed.
Price to sell - This doesn't mean you need to give away the farm, but you should be pricing your property at or just slightly below (in hopes of generating multiple offers) market price if you want it to move. Buyers will generally not pay above market price for a property, while many sellers will have emotional attachments to their property and have a tough time letting a property go for what is market price at that moment. Market prices can change fast these days, and online pricing resources aren't necessarily spot on, in some cases quite off, and being a local Realtor, I can help narrow down the price correctly. Even if a seller is willing to listen to offers, properties priced too high can actually scare off offers, and if a home that is overpriced sits too long, a price drop may not help it generate a lot of new buyer activity, so it's best to be priced in the correct range from the get-go.
My goal is to get you the best possible price, as quickly as possible.
