Don’t put a “for sale” out the front of your home without first thinking about what to do to get the most out of your sales campaign.
There are a few things that every seller should do before their property goes on the market to help them on their way to a successful sale.
- A bit of preparation
Spending some time making repairs and improvements to your property before it hits the market can go a long way towards achieving a higher sale price.
Invest in low cost measures that will have the biggest impact on the cosmetic appeal of the property such as painting, landscaping or new flooring.
Any obvious things that need to be fixed should also be rectified right away because even if it’s something small, it could be seen as an expensive problem for a potential buyer.
- A realistic sales price
Price your property for the market it’s in. Pricing a property too high will turn buyers away, while pricing it too low could mean that you miss out on potential profits.
Research what other similar properties in your area are selling for to help gauge what buyers might be willing to offer on your property. Keep in mind that no two properties are the same and there are a variety of factors that can influence the appeal of a property.
- Proper presentation
If you want buyers to come knocking then you’ll need a property that impresses.
This is where a professional styling service can help. A stylist can come in and highlight the best aspects of a property and show buyers what they want.
No body wants to see clutter and old furniture (unless they’re antiques) they want to see a contemporary and liveable space.
- The right advice
Every successful sale stems from getting the right advice from the start. Consult a real estate agent who has in-depth knowledge of your area and knows what local buyers are looking for. They will be able to put you on the right track when it comes to your marketing campaign and choosing the most appropriate method of sale.
