Do your research on the local real estate market
Studying local market trends will help you determine the pricing and even the timing of selling your home. Research the local housing market by looking into the most recent comparable sales, or "comps." These are properties similar to yours that have been sold in your neighborhood. Comps can help determine the value of your home. Knowing the pricing of similar properties in the area is vital to price your home appropriately. A local real estate agent can put together a list of "comps" for you.
Clean, prepare, and upgrade your home
Make the home more appealing by cleaning, preparing, and upgrading your home. Thoroughly clean out every room and storage space. Decorations and personal items should be kept to a minimum. This will help potential buyers visualize the home as their own. Emptying out the closets and storage will help highlight how much space for their personal belongings in the home. Deep cleaning the property will help it look newer and more attractive.
Hire a professional to stage and photograph your home
In today's digital age, more people are prescreening homes online before setting up a physical tour of the home. This is why hiring a professional to stage and photograph your home can make a big difference in attracting more buyers. Professional stagers will know how to arrange the furniture so that your home can look more spacious, how to use natural light so that your home can look brighter, and how to make your home warm and welcoming to potential buyers overall. Many professional stagers will even have their own inventory of decorations and furniture to help your home look amazing room by room.
Price your home appropriately
Of course, the most important step in selling your home is to price it appropriately. If you price it too high, potential buyers will look elsewhere for a better-priced home. You will get fewer offers, if any, and your home is more likely to stay on the market for longer. According to Medium, the first 30 days your home is on the market is when you have the most leverage as a seller. Buyers always have a price range when searching for a home. Therefore, an overpriced home can miss out on potential traffic because they are priced over the budget of some buyers.
