Selling a house is a competition against all of the other homes for sale in your area. To shorten the time it takes to sell your home and get the best price possible, you need to make sure your home stands out from the crowd.
TNT Home & Realty can provide you with invaluable marketing resources that can get your house sold. Our knowledge of effective sales tactics, negotiating skills, and familiarity with the neighborhood around your house can be extremely valuable. In addition, TNT Homes & Realty knows how to best advertise your home to a wide audience of potential buyers as well as other real estate agents.
Before you set the asking price for your home, you may want to visit a number of other homes in your area that are listed in the price range you are considering. Be honest with yourself and try to objectively decide if a buyer would choose your home over the others that are available for a comparable price. If you cannot answer yes, you should consider listing your home at a lower price or investing in home improvements that will add value to your desired asking price.
TNT Homes & Realty will develop a marketing plan for selling your home that includes things such as open houses, placing ads on Web sites, listing your home on MLS, etc. You should also take an active role in marketing your home. You may consider creating a booklet that highlights some of the interesting things about your home and neighborhood that might not be obvious to a prospective buyer (such as quality of the school districts, proximity to shopping centers and public transportation, safety of your neighborhood, etc.). The booklet doesn’t need to be fancy – just a few sheets of paper with some photos and information – and it can make a big difference in helping make a positive impression on potential home buyers.
Give your home curb appeal, by sprucing up the exterior. Also, make the interior sparkle! Make minor repairs. When a home inspection is performed for a prospective buyer, you will probably be asked for these repairs to be made anyway, so you might as well do them ahead of time to make your home as attractive as possible. Eliminate as much clutter as possible to make rooms appear larger. If you work on the suggestions listed above, TNT Homes & Realty will do the rest and you will walk away with a smile on your face!
