Despite doing business in a declining real estate market, there are still a number of ways that sellers can push and sell their homes without knocking down the price. If you’re wondering how you can turn potential buyers into actual owners, here are some guidelines you ought to take note of.
1. Be realistic with your pricing
Don’t think you can easily fool potential buyers by pricing your home higher than its real worth. What’s important is to have a comparable and competitive price, which is set against similar homes in your area. It’s always advisable to price your home 10 to15 percent less than your competitors, and get advice from real estate professionals, as well as your friends and family.
2. An inviting curb appeal
Once you get home buyers interessted in viewing your home, do make sure that you greet them with an aesthetically pleasing home exterior. First impressions do last, so make sure that you exert some effort in polishing and cleaning up the outside of your house, from doing the garden, painting and other furnishings.
3. Make your house ready to move in
Present your home in such a way that potential buyers can easily move in right away. This includes making repairs, slight renovations and decluttering your possessions.This will make your property more inviting and homey for prospective buyers. The key is to let them know that they won’t need to do or spend time or money fixing things before they can move in.
4. Always be accessible
Interested buyers will have lots and lots of questions before they push through with the home buying process.Therefore, it’s important to always make yourself available for the viewing, additional negotiations, and other types of information exchange between you and the buyer.
