With the housing inventory incredibly low, homeowners are in a great position to sell today because it gives them leverage to sell for the best possible terms, and it fuels a steady rise in home prices.
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR) , homes are typically on the market for just 18 short days. Despite the fact that the market has it’s advantages to sellers, there are still steps you can take to prepare your house to shine so you get the greatest possible return.
Keep it Clean
In addition to decluttering, it is important that you keep your house neat and tidy. Prior to a buyer coming to view your home, be sure to pick up toys, make the bed, and wash the dishes. Also, ensure your home smells fresh and clean. Buyers will remember the smell of your house and according to a NAR report, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms of the house to focus on to attract more buyers.
Make Buyers Feel at Home
A way to make buyers feel at home is taking time to declutter. Put away any personal items like pictures, awards, and sentimental belongings. The more neutral and tidy the space, the easier it is for a buyer to picture themselves living in the home.
Give Buyers Access
Buyers are less likely to make an offer on your house if they aren’t able to easily schedule time to view it. If your home is available anytime, that opens up more opportunity for a lot of buyers to go from curious to eager!
Price is Right
Even during a Seller’s Market, you want to set your house at the right price to maximize selling opportunity. Pricing it too high can be a detriment to the sale. The goal is to drive high attention from competing buyers which will create a bidding war to push the final sales price up.
