If you are ready to sell your home so you can upgrade to accommodate your growing family or downsize for those who no longer need all of the extra space, there are some things you can do to help you “move” your home a little faster. Once your home has sold we have homes in the wonderful community of Windmill Farms in Temple, Texas for your next investment.
With our years of experience in the Temple, Texas housing market we have been able to determine the best ways to market your house to help get it sold quickly. A few simple guidelines to follow to attract buyers are:
Curb Appeal: This is something that sellers can overlook. The exterior of the home is the very first thing potential buyers see. An opinion will be formed immediately strictly based on the outer appearance of your home. So, get the kids outside to pick up those stick, weed the flower bed and make sure the lawn is mowed.
Stand Out: Are there a few comparable houses for sale in your neighborhood? Make sure your home stands out from the crowd. Updated kitchens and bathrooms, manicured lawn and new flooring in your home is a great way to put your home at the top of buyers’ lists.
Sprinkle a Little Sugar on the Deal: A buyer wants to feel like they are getting a deal when they are making such a large purchase. Offering to pay closing costs, for example, is a great way to sway someone that is “on the fence” between your home and another. Perhaps a home warranty to make potential buyers feel they are making a safe decision. Also, let buyers know you are looking to sell quickly. Buyers want to purchase their new home and start living in it as soon as possible.
Declutter and Organize: It is easier for a client to picture themselves in a space when rooms look larger and personal items have been removed. Some clients have found great success using a staging company to help arrange their home to show at its highest potential. If this is something that interests you we have several recommendations for you.
Price It Right: No matter how upgraded your home is, how inviting the neighborhood or how many credits you offer to buyers, if it is overpriced it will be harder to sell. Check with your agent to find comparable homes in the community to ensure you list your home at the right price.
