Home Selling Guide
Looking for a home selling guide with a few simple strategies? This is the guide for you! There is more than one way to sell a home today. From pricing to staging, to listing it during on or off season, it all comes down to balance. A balance between psychology and strategy. To make things simple, we offer you some insight into home selling strategies that work.
To sell a home right, it should be priced appropriately. So, what is appropriate? The first step is to find out what your home is worth, and reduce the sale price by 15 to 20 percent. The outcome of this strategy is more interested homebuyers and multiple bids. Eventually, the buyers will bid up the price over what the home is worth. While this strategy takes some courage, it is worth thinking about.
Spring brings out homebuyers en masse. While on and off seasons can change, Springtime marks the beginning of the busiest home selling and home buying season in most areas. Spring is the time to take advantage of warm weather, and longer sunny days. Spring is a well-known time of year for those selling a home, to do so quicker and for more money.
Most homebuyers expect a back-and-forth negotiation, so the initial offer will be low. This is a tactic used by a homebuyer to have some room to move. More often than not, the first offer will be lower then the buyer is willing to pay and lower than the list price. This is where strategy comes in, do not be the seller that counteroffers with a price below the list price. Do not let the fear of losing a potential sale drive your price down. Instead of dropping the price, to get closer to the homebuyer’s offer, counter at your list price. Stay strong, it will pay off!
