Could You Get More Than You're Asking For Selling Your Home?

If you’re looking to move or simply want to free up some cash, then care has to be taken to ensure that your sale gets you the best possible value for your home. If you’re working with a real estate agent’s opinion on its resale value alone, then you might be shortchanging yourself. There are some real steps you can take to bump up that price, including the following.

Get a real estimate of its worth

You should ensure that you keep your expectations realistic and that you have a good idea of how much the home is really going to sell for. Your real estate agent should have already recommended it but, if not, then you should hire a home evaluation service on your own. Aside from giving you a good idea of the value of the home, they can provide some advice on what you can do to increase its value with fixes and changes.

Take care of those lingering issues

You don’t want to spend a whole ton of money renovating any aspects of the home that might be more expensive to fix than to leave alone. You don’t need a money pit. But you can deal with the wear and tear and accidental damage that builds up over time that can really undermine the appeal of the home. Clean and maintain the home before putting it on the market to help it really shine.

Know how to list it

It’s not enough to simply throw your property online and hope that people find it. The listing is a big part of the advertising process and there are lots of ways to enhance. Ensure that you’re providing all of the details that people would want to know about the home, pointing out anything specific that makes it a more appealing sale, and thinking about whether you can provide virtual tours to really enhance the experience of finding the property online.

Enhance the viewing experience

Aside from marketing the home as best as you can, one of the best ways to ensure that you get visitors interested is to create a better viewing experience. Keeping it clean and maintained is one thing, but you might also want to look at a staging company. Choosing the right furniture and decor to play to the strengths of the space as best as possible can give viewers a real idea of how it might look when they’re moved in, which can be a compelling sell.

Consider the neighborhood as well

Of course, when you’re selling your home, you’re not just selling the property, but the place that it’s located in, as well. One of the most important aspects of choosing a good real estate agent is choosing one who knows the area, who knows what it offers, and what benefits it can provide to those living there, so choose with care.

 You might not be able to see massive changes in the value of your home with the tips above, but you can make sure that you’re getting what it’s really worth, and attracting more buyers to pump that price up further.
