Selling Fast and for Top Dollar
Essential tips to sell your home fast and for top dollar
Selling fast and selling for top dollar, the two best things that can happen to any seller. Maximizing your profit when selling your home can actually be relatively easy if you follow these specific steps of guidance. The only issue is, so few home sellers do the very little required to make sure the check they walk away from the closing table is the highest it possibly can be. With a little preparation and knowledge, we will help you get there.
Like any employment opportunity, it is important to interview at least three real estate agents or brokers to determine who will be the best fit for your needs, but also for the property needs. Make sure to do your due diligence on your agent. Look at their recent listings, their closed listings, and how each listing is represented. Remember online presence and awareness is one of the most important factors to selling a home in today’s environment. Make sure their properties present properly online and in person. Find out how long it took that home to sell and how the sales priced stacked up against other recent sales in the neighborhood. About 90% of all buyers will find your home on-line before contacting a Realtor and if your marketing has not grabbed their attention then there is a problem. Do a Google search for the broker before you even consider scheduling an interview. If they do not have a strong internet presence run the other way. Online presence is vital to selling your home for top dollar.
Understand the real estate market and location
It is critical that the broker you choose understands the real estate market and how it works. Ask them about inventory, pending home sales, price trends, seasonal market considerations. Not just in your region or your town but in your neighborhood and on your street. Each house plays by its own set of rules and they need to know those rules or run the other way. For instance, in the Northern Palm Beaches more single family home sell in June than any other month and in January sales are the slowest. But if you are selling a condominium April is the month where most sales happen and September is the slowest. Ask questions, lots of them and get answers. Look them in the eye and focus on finding someone you trust as selling a home is a team effort and trust is the key ingredient.
Professionally target market the property correctly
How well your home shows, both in professional photos and for showings will play a significant role in what your home will sell for. That is why the Gentile & Associates Realty Group uses professional stages, professional photographers, and licensed drone pilots for all of our properties no matter how big or small they are. The prettier your property looks the more attention it is going to get. Remember you need to play significant important to all the senses – not just sight. Remember the way a home smells can drastically change a first impression and can provoke some powerful emotions. As a seller it is important to remember that this is a business transaction not an emotional decision, but at the same time, we want to make the potential buyer have an emotional attachment to the property as they enter the door, causing an emotional decision for the greater.
Trust your agent
Remember trusting your agent and their advice in marketing and pricing your home accurately is a key factor in selling your home for top dollar and fast. Just remember – price it properly, prepare it properly, market it properly, and sell it quickly. It is not unusual in the Jupiter, Tequesta, Palm Beach and Treasure Coast markets for a home that follows these important steps to go under contract within days and close within 30-45 days. Do not go with the agent that tells you your home is worth the most, because often they just say what they think you want to hear, but do not use actual statistics to warrant the price with limited experience to back.
