This article is a step-by-step "How To" for anyone looking for advice and tips on how to sell their home or property.
Tip #1: Hire A Local Real Estate Agent
Be sure to vet your prospective real estate agent. Make sure that they know and service your neighborhood. Having a real estate agent who knows exactly what your property is worth is the best way to be sure that you are getting top-dollar for your home sale.
Tip #2: De-Clutter Your House Before You Show It
Prior to listing and showing your home in an open house, be sure to walk around your home and put away any and all clutter. Remove and hide anything and everything on your kitchen counters and island (if you have one). I the bathrooms, put away all shampoo and conditioner bottles. And clean the shower glass. Make your home look as spotless and decluttered as possible.
Tip #3: Hire A Professional Photographer
Since a bulk of the interest in your house being for sale comes from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) or other real estate sites on the internet... having superb photos of your property is essential. Be sure to discuss with your real estate agent just who is going to be the one to pay for those photos too.
Tip #4: Pricing Your Home To Sell Fast
If you are interested in a quick sale, here is my best tip for pricing your house just right. Be sure to obtain a list of "comps" or comparable properties in your neighborhood. From those "comps" you can easily come up with the fair market value for your home. Once you have that comparable number, shave off 10% - 15% and THAT will be your listing price. By shaving 10% - 15% off... you will be turning folks away at your first open house. And who knows, you'll probably make up that shaved off percentage once your property gets multiple offers. Good luck!
