Tips for Sellers

Selling Your Home Doesn’t Have to be a Headache

The process of selling your home can be a lengthy one, especially if you’ve never had to sell your home before. Fortunately, with our help, you can make the process significantly shorter and more pleasurable. We have extensive knowledge of the Virginia Peninsula real estate market, and we are more than confident we can get your home sold quickly and at the maximum price.

Time-Tested Tips for a Quick Sale

When the time to sell your house arrives, an agent can provide you with valuable selling tips to get your house sold as fast as possible and for the most money. To increase your chances of selling your house for maximum profit, try keeping the following tips in mind:

• Stage your home prior to showing. This will help potential buyers envision the space as their own.

• Try to avoid overpricing your home. Your home may mean a lot to you, but you must remember selling a house is a financial transaction.

• Make simple cosmetic repairs, especially in highly trafficked areas of the home.

• Effectively market your home to the public. This can include listing your home with the MLS, using signage, and advertising your home in local real estate publications.

• Sell your home at the right time. Families buy homes, and many families prefer to buy homes during the summer so they don’t have to move during the school year.

These tips for selling can greatly help you speed up the process. During this time, an agent can help you negotiate with potential sellers and arrange open houses. Many sellers even receive offers during their first open house event.

How Can a Real Estate Agent Assist You?

When you sell your house with the help of an agent, they can help you understand the important factors that will come into play when your house is placed on the market. Some of these factors include the condition, location, and listing price of your home, as well as your willingness to make repairs or upgrades.

As you probably inferred, homes with cosmetic defects and those in need of repairs will fetch lower prices. To evaluate the price of your home from an objective perspective, our agents will use sales information from “comparable properties.” Comparable properties are properties similar to yours that have recently been sold or are currently on the market. This will help us competitively price your home to appeal to buyers.
