The most popular time to list your home in the Silicon Valley in 2017 is coming up… on March 31, in fact. And if you want to stand out amongst the crowd and sell your home (without having to drop the price), you’ll need to employ the best home-selling and marketing tips out there. Are you prepared?
To help get your ready to list your home during the busy season, we’ve got some tips to keep you competitive and sell your home quickly—and for more!
Price Your Home to Sell
Want to sell your home quickly yet still make the most money on it? Start with the right price. There are a lot of resources out there to help you find that sweet spot, like a neighborhood sold report, which will give you an idea of what other homes in your neighborhood are selling for, or even just searching homes for sale in your neighborhood to see prices at which similar homes are listed.
To really get an accurate read of your home value and the correct price, however, it’s always best to request a full home analysis that will take into account any renovations, improvements, or modifications you’ve made.
Make a Wow-ing First Impression
Nothing sells a home like… the home! So make your home stand out from the crowd. Start with home improvements and easy fixes that will clean up, declutter, and showcase your home. Make it look its very best, inside and out. Professional photography will give your home an outstanding online appeal (most buyers are starting their home searches online nowadays), curb appeal will welcome visitors to your front door, and superior staging will make your home’s best features stand out.
Set a Stage to Welcome, Showcase & Impress
Start with the outside and work your way in. Make your home neat, bright, colorful, and welcoming to visitors who drive up to the front of your home. Make sure your yard is neat, your front walkways and driveway are clear and easily-accessible, and everything is in good repair.
Inside, remove your personalized decor, decorations, and photos. Make your home look like anyone’s home—because it could be. Give your buyers the opportunity to imagine their own furniture and decor in your home.
And of course, make sure your home is clean, tidy, and free of clutter.
