A Fast Sale Can be All in the Way You Market
Why does one home in a neighborhood sell faster than another that is similar in price and size? Marketing!
An effective marketing plan goes a long way in making your home seem a better buy than the next, therefore attracting more potential buyers. Your Starkville Properties real estate professional can help you with advertising, such as flyers, newspaper ads, yard signs, Internet listings, but as the seller, there are things you can do too.
Price your home to sell. Homes that are priced within market value sell much faster than those overpriced. Overpricing your home can cause you to miss out potential purchase offers, because buyers may think that you aren’t a serious seller. You should work with your real estate professional to come up with a competitive asking price.
Leave the house
Give the buyer space. Most real estate professionals agree that a home sells faster when the seller is not present when prospective buyers are viewing the home. Oftentimes, buyers feel uncomfortable around the seller and might not inspect everything they would want to. They might not want to offend the buyer or seem impolite. As a result, potential buyers may rush through the showing and simply move on to the next home on their list.
Make your home easily available for showing. If you have a complicated showing procedure-such as needing 24-hour notice for previews, you may cut off a good portion of the buying market. Many requests from real estate professionals are for same-day, even last minute, showings.
If you are considering selling your home, enlist the help of a Starkville Properties professional who can assist you in creating an efficient marketing plan-a marketing plan that not only gives you the price you deserve, but also ensures that the property sells in a timely manner. A good agent should be able to give you valuable advice on how to best meet both these goals.
