When selling your home there are certain steps you should take to get the highest possible price.
First you will want to find an experienced Realtor who knows the market and knows what buyers want. Emily has years of experience working with buyers in the desert. She along with her team of vendors will help you get your home ready to list and shine to those prospective buyers.
Emily will help you price your home based on current market values, and will also guide you in what to do to make your house outshine the competition. There are many simple things to do to help your home make the best impression and sell sooner rather than later.
Here are some ideas that will help you get one step closer to selling your home with Emily in the shortest amount of time for the highest possible price:
A well cleaned home shows buyers that the house has been well cared for and there is no deferred maintenance. A messy or dirty home will make buyers look for any additional flaws, hence subtracting these flaws off the asking price.
Let the light shine in.
People are always telling Emily they want a light and bright home. This means to open up those shades and turn on the lights for buyers to see how open and airy your home is. If it’s the right time of year, open the windows and let that cool desert breeze come through.
There is nothing more that improves the value of a home then a fresh coat of paint. Not all homes will need this but if you have a colorful pallet of walls or walls with lots of scuffs and bruises, choosing a light neutral color will help your home show it’s best.
Do a pre-move before listing.
Go through the house and anything you don’t use on a daily basis put into storage so your house is clean and uncluttered. Emily hears it from buyers all the time that it’s hard to see through the current owner’s belongings and imagine themselves in the home. This would also include the family photos and any personal items you do not want to sell with the home. Remember the saying, “less is more”? This is a perfect example!
Fix and Repair.
If you know that something is in need of repair it’s proactive to go ahead and get it done. Emily can provide you with a great list of vendors that can help you with all these items. It’s better to get it done prior to a buyer seeing it and thinking it would cost thousands of dollars to fix when in reality it will be a lot less.
