The Ins and Outs of Selling Your Home

Optimizing your home to sell fast and at the best price is always easier said than done. There are many factors to take into consideration and multiple steps to go through. Amidst the chaos, there can be forgotten tasks and information that is overlooked. At Urban Key Realty, we know all of the usual bumps in the road and how to avoid them.

Identify repairs and fix them

Regarding all those things you have seen around the house that you know needs to be fixed, now is the time to do it. It’s important you show your potential buyers the home is well cared for and want to avoid any obstacles during the inspection stage.

Declutter and clean

Before you showcase your house, it’s important you clean! Utilize your storage spaces and toss what you don’t need. Make your house feel spacious and have it sparkle like it’s brand new!

Set the stage and  make it feel like a home

After you make your home look brand new, it’s time to set the stage. Sometimes it helps to envision yourself as a  new buyer looking at your house. Does it feel inviting? What else can you add to the environment? 82% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home. (National Association of Realtors)

The realtor prices the property

It can be difficult to price your home, especially if there are many memories tied to it. Remember, emotional attachment does not translate into property value. A great real estate agent will be able to show sellers the market value of the property, thus pricing the home right.

Negotiate and get it sold

The last step to selling is the negotiation process. In today’s market, many offers that come in are over asking. During this process, your real estate agent will work hard to get you the best deal.
