Thinking about selling your home in DC Ranch? These three tips can help you sell it faster and for more money.
3 Tips to Help You Sell Your Luxury Home in DC Ranch
Selling your home in DC Ranch typically requires the expertise of a highly skilled Realtor®. Your Realtor will be by your side every step of the way, making sure you’re well-informed throughout the process and marketing it to all the right potential buyers. With that said, though, these are five things you can do to help your agent sell your home quickly:
- Price it correctly the first time.
- Put a lot of effort into curb appeal.
- Stage your home – not just for photos and 3D tours, but for tours, too.
Pricing your home correctly before you even put it on the market is essential. If you don’t, you’re not going to reach the widest range of buyers – and you could be blocking out buyers who would fall in love and make an offer on the spot.
The bottom line is that your home is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, so keep that in mind as you’re settling on a price.
Pricing Your Home Too High
Think of it this way: More than 90 percent of home buyers begin their home searches online, and the vast majority of people search only for homes within their price ranges. If your home is priced too high, the buyers who could reasonably buy it won’t even see it – and the buyers who do see it based on their price range will be comparing it against homes with more features, more room and extra amenities that your home doesn’t have.
Pricing Your Home Too Low
Pricing your home too low doesn’t hurt anyone but you. The main problem is that you’ll be leaving money on the table – money you could use for a down payment on your next home, retirement or absolutely anything else.
When a prospective buyer pulls up next to your home, they start forming an impression right away. It’s important that they form a favorable one – particularly when you know they’ll carry that impression right into the house with them. Check out this list of “quick fixes” you can do to improve your home’s curb appeal:
- Have the front door repainted
- Put out a cheerful, fun welcome mat
- Upgrade your mailbox
- Add seasonal décor to your porch
- Put up new house numbers
- Put live, potted plants on the porch
- Add outdoor furniture to the porch
- Replace exterior light fixtures
- Install landscape lighting, which also serves as a selling point
Talk to your Realtor about other things you can do to boost curb appeal even more. He or she will advise you to make sure the landscaping is fresh and neat, and that you power-wash the sidewalk, scrub your windows so they’re sparkling clean, and ensure that kids’ bikes, toys and other accessories are put away.
Stage Your Home
When you stage your home to sell it, leave it staged. Usually, people have their homes professionally staged for photos and 3D tours – but then, as the days slip by, the staging goes right out the window. Don’t let that happen to you! Work hard to keep your home looking just like it does in the photos and videos your prospective buyers are seeing online.
