What Can I Do to Sell My Home Faster?

There are three critical factors that a seller controls: pricing, condition and marketing.


Pricing - Correct pricing is the most important element of selling a home.  Your agent should assist you in making this decision by providing a comparative market analysis based on recently sold homes that are similar to yours. You should also consider which active homes for sale will be your competition.  Visiting your competition in person can be a very valuable use of time.


Condition - Buyers strongly prefer homes that require little or no work.  You should clean thoroughly, get rid of clutter and stage your home to show at its best.  Your agent should help make suggestions.  Professional stagers are available when needed.  Beyond staging, but perhaps more important, are repairs. Making repairs and improvements before you list your home can be critical.  A well presented home will almost always sell more quickly and for more money. Small things like fresh paint can pay off big at closing. When a home is in need of obvious repairs, buyers will turn away or make low offers.


Marketing - Quality presentation and massive exposure are the most important marketing tools.  The seller controls this aspect by choosing their agent wisely. I recommend sellers consider and visit with at least 3 agents before making a decision. You should ask for examples and insist on the maximum number of high quality, professional photos for your home. Video and Virtual Tours are essential elements in today’s market. 97% of buyers search homes online and decided which homes to visit in person based on the online presentation.
