Did you know that homes sell for 3 reasons?
Price: Pricing your home is important, too high and you lose the enthusiasm of buyers when you put it on the market. Buyers are educated in today's market and with home value estimators, they know what a home is worth, and they expect it to be priced right. Also, with low inventory of homes for sale, buyers will be flocking to new homes, but if you over price your home, they won't even waste time viewing it.
Condition: Once a buyer decides to see your home, it's all about condition! They're walking around your home not only to look at the layout but also to inspect the condition. They're looking for signs of deferred maintenance and other potential problems, that would cost them more money in the future. So if you're home is in good condition, keep it that way! If not, you may be able to do some cheap things to fix it up, in order to prevent those types of problems. When your property is in good condition, it reduces the friction of getting buyers to make an offer!
Exposure: When you list your home for sale, it's published on the Multiple Listing System (MLS), where all the real estate agents in your area can see the property and it's information. Zillow pulls their data from the MLS, along with tens of thousands of other sites, put your best food forward with amazing images. So having good photos and good data, is key to good exposure. However, that's not enough! A good REALTOR® is going to have a marketing plan and things they do to further market your home to find buyers. Good marketing exposure is key to getting people to see your home and hopefully to want a tour.
When you price your home correctly, it's in good condition, and has the exposure of the MLS and my Team's marketing, it will sell fast and for what it's actually worth!
