Well, spring, obviously real popular time of the year to make a move perhaps to buy your very first house. Yes, and if you’re going to be selling your home or stretching your dollar with how to choose a listing price and make sure your property stands out, it may still look like winter, but the spring home-buying frenzy is well underway.
CEO of Tier 1 Real Estate, Ryan Smith told us, if you’re hoping to sell your property, the time is now to get it on the market. Step one, make sure you carefully price your home. If you price it too high, you’re not going to get any looks. If you price it too low, you can leave money on the table. I like to price homes pretty close to their market value because I feel like that generates some early interest and sometimes even a competitive bidding war.
Next to clean up your property when the ground thaws, put in fresh mulch or flowers to clean things up. Consider a fresh coat of paint on the mailbox or house number as well. And third, make sure you’re getting the most exposure possible. Greatest way to get exposure for listing is to making sure that it goes into the multiple listing service, multiple listing service feeds into some very popular websites such as realtor.com and zillow.com many people have also found it’s worth the money to have a professional photographer take pictures of your home for you, and while you wait for heads, if you can do pre-inspection repairs, if you know something needs to be fixed, you’ll likely save money doing it yourself or using your own contractor and clean up your stuff inside. I mean that nicely. Declutter. You got to get rid of a lot of stuff. Get rid of 80% it is, and you think you’re not. You think that you don’t have too much stuff until you start getting rid of it.
