HOW CAN YOUR HOME BE A PERFECT 10?
by:Vicki Holton-Kirk Holton Team
Wouldn’t you like your home to be a perfect 10? Here are a few suggestions to help you reach that goal. First of all…make sure it is in GREAT condition: No repairs needed…no landscaping that needs sprucing up, everything squeeky clean and in good shape. Next…offer good terms:..make it easy to show, available for a quick closing if need be…and, possibly offer to pay some of the buyer’s closing costs. Flexibility will get you far in this competitive market! Then improve the way the home shows. Can you leave lights on, open drapes or shades to let sunlight in, make sure the landscaping is neat and in good shape? And further..can you have it staged if it is vacant? Does the home look as nice as it can possibly look? Are you utilizing it’s full potential to get the best price? Sometimes, spending a little money can reap great rewards and the $5,000 you spend can earn you another $10,000 when you go to sell. Make sure the price is in a range that will generate activity in the form of showings. Watch for warning signs, such as, agent elimination. If the home is not being shown by agents, there is a good chance the price is too high. Agents don’t like to show homes they cannot sell…so..if no one is showing it…it may be the time to re examine the price with your agent. And remember…your home is NOT worth…What you have in it, what you need out of it, what you want to get, what your neighbor got, or what it appraised for. Your home is worth what a buyer is willing to pay for it!
If you take a serious look at your home and follow these tips, your home can become the “perfect 10,” or pretty close to it!
