Top 7 Marketing Tips For Sellers

Top 7 Marketing Tips For Sellers

Selling your home can be an exciting, but daunting task. Here are some tips to make that home selling process a breeze--

De-Clutter and Make Necessary Repairs
To a potential buyer, first impressions of a home are always critical. So get rid of unwanted items to clear out space. Remember: If you haven't touched it in years, then you probably don't need it. Donate rarely used items. Hire a handyman or contractor to repair defects such as leaks and loose doorknobs or fixtures.

Invest in Staging Your Home
Professionally preparing your home decorating and depersonalizing as to appeal to the widest range of buyers can pay off big time. Stagers, designers, and furniture companies are experienced and eager in assisting home sellers in this process, which has been proven to help reduce market time.

Hire a Professional Photographer
Studies revealed that professionally photographed homes sold faster and for more money than homes with amateur photos. Understand that we're not talking about your smart phone. Any money that you invest in a photographer will likely be return.

Create an Experience
List what you love most about your home and create a story about how wonderful it’s been to live there. Put this narrative together with support materials such high-quality images, a floor plan, and map. Help potential buyers imagine all the possibilities of their life in your unique space. What already exists, and what they can create on their own. For example, if your three-bedroom home only has one full bath (many buyers nowadays expect two full baths), instead of doing a complete addition before you sell, include an architectural drawing of what can be built into the space. Try out this website www.glossre.

Advertise in Multiple Media Outlets
Give your property the full exposure it needs. Post your seller’s listing on several websites that will generate large buyer traffic. If your promotional budget is tight, then focus on spreading the news by word of mouth. Network with your neighbors, colleagues, and church or school communities. Someone might know someone who’s looking for a lovely house like yours in the neighborhood.
