First impressions are important!
The appearance and condition of your home have a profound effect on its marketability. A favorable first impression will increase the value of your home and help it sell faster. The following are a few general tips to help you prepare your home for sale:
- Check the “curb appeal” of your home from across the street. Would your home benefit from freshly planted flowers? Does your home need painting? How does the roof look?
- De-personalizing the space may be difficult, but it will lead to a faster sale. By choosing neutral interior paint colors and getting rid of personal clutter, you stand a better chance of making someone else feel at home when they walk in the door. Because storage space is a great selling feature, be sure to clean out your closets and other storage areas.
- Let the sun shine in! Open curtains and shutters where possible to make your home bright and cheerful. Keep your windows clean and leave lights on for showings.
- Replace worn or outdated paint and carpeting where necessary. Steam clean existing carpets. New paint and carpets will provide you with the best return on your home improvement dollar.
These are just a few suggestions — each home is different and Mike will be happy to take a look to help you decide where and how your time and money will be best spent.
Determining the asking price of your home is of paramount importance.
Price is the number one factor homebuyers consider when choosing which homes to look at. Mike Dunitz can provide you with a professional market analysis of your home to determine its value, taking into consideration recent sale prices of similar properties, competitive homes currently on the market, the condition and location of your home, and general market conditions in the area.
An overpriced home nets the seller less money.
It is important to be realistic in pricing your home. If the brokerage community perceives the home as overpriced when it hits the market, it will not be shown much during the critical period when the listing is “fresh”. The longer the property stays on the market, the more buyers begin to think something is wrong with it. If it eventually sells, it will be at a greater discount off the list price and will cost more in mortgage payments, taxes and maintenance.
