Tips on Selling

How to successfully sell your property Selling your home? Make sure it doesn’t sit on the market for months (or years!) by paying special attention to the following key aspects.

taking care to accompany each ad with as many enticing photos as you can. Include shots of each room as well as of the exterior, both in winter and summer if applicable.

1. ASKING PRICE

Keep in mind that buyers tend to shop by price bracket — if you’d like to sell for $395,000, listing your home at $410,000 because you want to leave room to negotiate could backfire and dissuade potential offers.

When it comes to setting the price tag, don’t let your emotional attachment to your home cloud your good judgment. Compare your property to similar dwellings in the area that have recently sold and consider current market conditions to determine an asking price that’s both realistic and competitive.

2. MARKETING

For a quick sale, your home needs to capture and retain the attention of potential buyers. It’s therefore important that you promote your property across multiple platforms,

3. FIRST IMPRESSIONS

To impress your visitors, you’ll need to apply some of the basic principles of home staging to your decor. For instance: • Clean your property from top to bottom and banish all visible clutter — a messy home loses much of its appeal. • From that leaky faucet to the squeaky closet door, take care of any necessary repairs around the house. They may seem minor, but your visitors will take note. If you’re willing to make a larger investment, focus on the kitchen and bathrooms — renovations in these rooms yield the best return. • Remove all personal touches from your interior to help visitors imagine themselves occupying the space. For example, take your little one’s drawings off the fridge, put away family portraits, Cleanse, declutter and remove personal items from your home to improve your chances of selling fast.

and paint over your teen’s bright orange bedroom walls with a neutral shade. • Declutter cupboards and cabinets to better show off your home’s storage potential — an overflowing closet gives the impression of lacking space. Avoid overly busy areas as well as multi-purpose rooms. (Is it a home office or a guest bedroom? Pick one.)

4. CURB APPEAL

Visitors should be charmed the minute they lay eyes on your property. The facade must appear impeccable and the front yard, minutely maintained. During the winter, make sure the driveway and steps are always free of snow and ice. In the summertime, keep the lawn mowed and the landscaping well groomed, and never neglect the lighting at night.

5. SHOWINGS

The most fabulous of homes will remain on the market indefinitely if visiting it proves an unpleasant experience. Take care of any nasty lingering smells (cat litter, fryer oil, etc.) and keep your pets confined — or, better yet, have them stay at a friend’s or family member’s place. Finally, be prepared to answer any and all questions — don’t hide any current or past issues — and avoid making your visitors feel pressured at all costs.
