Help your House Shine
Successfully marketing your home requires a little extra effort, but it can put more money in your wallet.
One of the key components to getting more money for your home is increasing the perceived value (what the buyer thinks your home is worth), by making your house stand out from other homes on the market. Here are a few things we do to help your property shine:
We recommend staging your home: One of the simplest ways to improve the perceived value of the home is proper staging. This may include removing clutter and personal items and setting furniture up in a way that makes the home look larger. Research shows that a staged home typically sells for up to 10 percent more than un-staged homes.
Improvement suggestions: Many buyers think that putting money into a home they want to sell is a waste of money. However, simple upgrades and a little fresh paint can increase the perceived value of your home by several thousand dollars. Our experts will recommend suggested upgrades that will improve your sales price.
Pre-inspection: You are required to have an inspection on your home prior to the sale of the property. However, a pre-inspection will give your forewarning about potential problems, so you are not blindsided. Fixing repairs early can help increase your sales price and give you time to shop around for affordable repairs.
Professional Photos: Did you know that 90 percent of buyers see a home they like for the first time online? Bad photos can make your home look less desirable. Our professionals can help you take the best photos (taking into consideration angles and lighting) so potential buyers are attracted to your property from the get go. Poor photos can significantly reduce the number of interested parties.
