My home was on the market for only 10 days and we received a full price offer!
How did we accomplish this? More importantly, how can you accomplish this? It was hard work, but an incredibly easy and affordable task that anyone can do! Today, I’m sharing how we were able to make this happen for us and how you can, too!
1. Know Your Numbers and set Realistic Expectations
There are important tips that Real Estate Expert, Renee Burrows, gave in my Sell Your Home Series to help you price your home properly, what to discuss with your realtor and how to prepare for your market in your area. Knowledge is key in knowing your price point and appropriate expectations.
We started a month before our home was listed. We talked numbers with our agent and had a game plan of what to expect in different price brackets if an offer came in. We knew our top and bottom of what we should expect to receive. Then we researched ways to stage your home and make it most appealing to a buyer. Once the plan was in place, we got to working on the house.
Here’s a sample Net sheet that shows your bottom line that your agent can prepare for you.
2. Curb Appeal
Making your home a showpiece will attract buyers and increase showings, but it starts the moment they step on your property. Make sure your home is beautiful from the outside in. Spruce up the exterior in case potential buyers drive by to see the property before scheduling a showing. We worked hard to make sure our home had Curb Appeal and stood out from the rest. Clean up your beds, wash the windows, even pressure wash your driveway.
Make it sparkle!
