So you’re planning to list your house on the market. Great! But wait! Whether you’ve sold a home before or are a first-time seller, the home selling game can be complex. With a few tips and tricks from Boulder Bay Realty team, you can proceed with confidence for the optimal sale.
Of course, as a seller, you are looking to get the optimal price for your home. To achieve this, or cut close, start by doing research on the market in your area. The best way to do this is to work with your Boulder Bay agent to request a comparative market analysis. Comparable properties should be in close range of your property, similar in age, listed within the last three months, and have similar square footage.
- Learn from other sellers’ mistakes. Review expired comparable listings to measure original list prices to the final sale price.
- Check how much similar homes are selling for and try to make your listing in between those to avoid blending in with competition.
- Make sure that you are considering the national and state level economy when putting your house on the market. If you can afford to wait if the market is low, then do it. You will profit more. Gauge where the mortgage rates are going - the lower, the better!
- Check the latest unemployment figures and the rate of local home builders building homes in the area.
Nice weather offers the best potential to close on a home. People are out and about, more comfortable with making decisions, and can clearly see all outside landscaping in its prime.
Think about it - There is a difference between listing your home in the spring versus during a snowstorm. In fact, Spring listings in particular are almost always sold at full asking price. All weather aside, serious buyers will be looking all year round, no matter how cold it is outside. Work with your Bould Bay agent to talk through any potential weather challenges to maximize your home sale.
No matter the time of year, weather, or economic climate, proper preparation will always help you maximize the value of your home. Having an agent who is highly skilled in the current market conditions is a must. If you are listing your home or planning to, the Boulder Bay Realty team is prepared to help you reach your full price listing potential.
