Quote the correct amount. Selling a house is an uphill task given the current state of affairs in the market. This is because of the slowdown in home sales and the decline in home prices. Potential buyers will tend to pull out of deals where the homeowner never priced a home as per its value at the time of listing. Pick out homes in your area that are similar to yours and that have been sold recently and then compare the prices. Also take note of the homes that have been listed and have not been sold for quite some time, and you will realize that they have been overpriced. Buyers will often consider buying the homes that are being sold lower prices than the others that are on sale.
Work on the attractiveness of the home. Buyers will not want to buy a home that is disorganized with all manner of items dumped on the floor. If one has poorly maintained items in the house, it will be a put off to the buyers. In most cases real estate agents will hire people to work on the attractiveness of the house. Make sure that the home is well aired and cleaned when expecting a potential buyer to view the home. When the buyer comes to view the house ensure that they feel comfortable.
Engage an inspector. Damaged homes will fetch low amounts than the homes that are well maintained and that have little defects. Get an inspection to be carried out before you advertise the sale of the home. The house will fetch higher prices when the repairs are done by the seller than when they are included in the bargain. Doing an inspection well in advance will help you avoid the surprises that might come if the buyer wants you to do some repairs.
Your listing should have a lot of pictures. In a bid to get through a sale ensure that in all the listing the house remains visible and attractive. Online platforms have become a key starting point when one wants to select a house to buy. Have clear images for the home that can be relied solely by the buyer when making a purchasing decision. A good addition would be to have a short video showing the core features of the home. Most of the homes listed without picture will take a lot of time to be noticed by buyers.
Give incentives. Give incentives to buyers such as promising to cater for the closing costs relating to the sale. This is a good incentive to buyers that have little resources. Think also of offering to repair some of the areas pointed out as faulty.
