Price it Right
Overpricing your home is one of the most common real estate mistakes. It can be difficult to separate emotions from the facts about a home’s worth, so some owners make their asking price way too high for the market based on sentimental
Your home is worth what someone will pay for it. The best way to get an idea about that number is to compare recent sale prices of homes like yours in your area. A real estate agent can do that research by doing a comparative market analysis (CMA). A CMA will help you set a price that will bring in buyers.
Get it "show" readyAnother area to consider is your home itself. If it isn’t "show"ready by the time the for-sale sign goes up , there’s work to be done! First, get rid of clutter; you don’t want potential buyers to be so distracted by dust bunnies or nick knacks that they miss out on your home’s best features.
And speaking of your home’s best features, it is not some odd painting or decoration that you love. Everyone has different taste, so ditch the extra "stuff." You want to make it easy as possible for buyers to picture your house as their home and that can’t happen until you have a a blank canvas. That means put away your personal effects and make room for the buyer’s imagination.
