Is your home still sitting on the market? Try this to get it sold
Updated: Sep 6, 2023
Slow and steady wins the race..unless you’re trying to sell your home. When it comes to that race, it’s almost always the faster, the better.
So if your home is getting a little too comfy in “active” status, and you’re 'bout ready to throw in the towel, here are 3 tried-and-true tips to get your home off the market and you on your way to your next big thing.
1) Price it right from the start.
A well-priced home is a magnet for buyers. Work with your real estate agent to analyze the market and set a competitive price that attracts attention. And don't let your home languish with an unrealistic price tag. Pricing it strategically will generate interest, drive up demand, and increase the likelihood of multiple offers.
In fact, according to one analysis, homes that sold within 10 days sold for 101.3% of their asking price. After 120 days on the market, the sale-to-list price ratio dropped to 97.6%. (Ugh.)
The good news? If you’re coming to the conclusion your home is priced too high, 64% of homes sell with just one price reduction.
2) Maximize curb appeal like a pro.
First impressions matter, so if you haven’t already (or have, but it’s been a while), ensure your home's exterior is clean, crisp, and well-maintained. Spread fresh mulch, add seasonal pops of color with a new wreath or fresh flowers, and clean out dead brush and cobwebs.
3) Stage to steal their hearts.
Transform your home into a buyer's good fortune with just the right amount of staging. Declutter, depersonalize and arrange furniture strategically to highlight the best features of each room. Create an inviting and neutral atmosphere that allows potential buyers to envision themselves living in the space.
