How Homes Sell
Factors That Influence Home’s Value
Pricing your home accurately is the most effective way to ensure a successful sale.
Buyers pay a very close attention to the homes’ condition. The less work needed, the more value home has.
Often more important than the condition of the home. In the end, you can renovate the house, but cannot change the location.
Such factors as Supply & Demand, Interest Rates and economic condition, play a role in home sales.
Most desirable features: open floor plan, size, private back yard, etc-increase home’s value.
Strategic marketing will highlight the features of your home and increase the value of your home in the eyes of the buyers.
Organizing & Depersonalizing
Buyers like homes that are de-cluttered, organized, and staged because it helps them to see the potential of the space, creates a positive emotional response, and makes the home appear move-in ready. Preparing your home for sale will bring more buyers through the door, sell your home quickly, and maximize the sale price.
Every room in the house will need your attention. These are a few items to start with:
- Declutter! Consider it pre-packing for your move. Box up books, clothes, and personal items and place hem (neatly!) in the garage or – better yet – a rented storage unit.
- Don’t forget to include memorabilia in those decluttering bins. Family photos, diplomas, and the kids’ artwork should all go.
- Keep closets, basement, and attic as empty as possible to maximize the appearance of storage space.
