Local Selling Tips

Price It Right From The Start.

Sellers often think they should start the asking price high and then lower it later if the house fails to sell. This could result in a slower sale – sometimes even at a lower price. The first 15 days’ activity of your house being on the market is always the best activity you are going to see.

Enhance Your Curb Appeal.

This could mean adding new sod, planting flowers, painting the front door or replacing the mailbox. Prospective buyers form an opinion the moment they spot the home. Curb appeal is everything. Driving into the driveway and walking into that front door sets the expectations.

Update the Interior and Exterior.

New fixtures, fresh paint and updated landscaping are all fairly easy and affordable ways. The home should look up to the current market conditions and what is in style.

Clean and Declutter.

The fewer things ina home, the larger it will look, so remove knickknacks and excess furniture. Also, you may want to hire a professional cleaning service and/or home stagging company.

Make The Property Easy To Show.

The more flexible you are about visits, the more people will be able to see your home. Be ready for prospective visitors early in the morning, at night and on weekends, with little notice. Also, it is best to remove pets.
