Are You Leaving Money on the Table?
Choosing to sell your house can be a big decision. And, you want to make sure that once you make that decision, you are making all the right moves to ensure you receive the most money possible. Here are three strategies to help you earn top dollar on the sale of your property:
|1. Tend to repairs. Easy and inexpensive repairs not only add to your home’s value, they also create the impression of a well-maintained home, which is an attractive prospect for buyers.
2. Embrace staging techniques. Buyers want to be able to imagine themselves in your home, so safely store the family portraits and clear the pile of shoes by the front door.
3. Don’t go it alone. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, for-sale-by-owner homes sold for an average of $185,000 in 2016 as opposed to $240,000 for agent-assisted home sales. For-sale-by-owner homes also accounted for only 8 percent of home sales overall.
