Thinking of Selling Your Home? Put My Marketing Expertise To Work For You!
Selling your home is a very important transaction! Simply putting a "For Sale"
sign in your front yard isn't always enough. Home Buyers may see a "For Sale By Owner
Sign" and their goal is to try and get your home for the lowest purchase price
possible. Having a qualified REALTOR® representing you will help you attain
the best purchase price for your home.
If you are thinking about selling your home, allow me to offer my expertise and
help make the transaction as smooth as possible. I will meet with you and do a
Comparative Market Analysis of your home to determine what I feel it is
worth. I will also describe how I will market your property to help it gain
exposure amongst potential buyers and hopefully sell within a reasonable amount
of time! Contact me today at 708-307-9616 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I Look Forward To Working With You!
Things You Can Do To Help Your Home Sell:
Pay Attention to Detail:
Pay close attention to the smallest details in your home because
potential buyers sure will! Items needing minor repairs that you may have
been putting off should be fixed, such as clogged drains, painting
that needs attention, faucets that drip, etc. Although these repairs are
minor in nature, in a potential buyer's eyes, they might see all the work that has to
be done once they move in.
Create a Warm and Inviting Atmosphere:
Buyers want to imagine themselves "living" in your home, as in the episode
of King of Queens where Kerry plays the Mom of a "fake" family
staged in a model home to let buyers see what it could be like to live there.
While the Leave-It-To-Beaver-type family of actors playing board games and
baking cookies as potential buyers walked through was a little extreme, it
wouldn't hurt to take a few more subtle tips from HGTV and light some candles
or turn on some mood-lighting.
Do As Mom Always Said and "Clean Your Room!":
Buyers are NOT impressed by clutter and it should be cleared up and
organized before they arrive. In some cases, it even makes sense to rent
a storage unit to keep it until you sell your home. Having the bare-minimum
furniture and furnishings in your home creates that "model home" feel that
excites buyers. Clearing away the clutter also lets buyers see the true
potential of a room, rather than just seeing the clutter.
Eliminate Stinky Pet Odors:
While I myself am a HUGE animal lover, having two dogs of my own, let's
be honest...while comforting us with their companionship and loyalty, our pets
don't always have the nicest odors to accompany their love. Us animal lovers
may not mind the smell of our own lovable pets, but potential buyers probably
will. Not everyone who walks through your door will even like animals (hard to imagine,
I know) and some potential buyers may even be allergic. Although it may be
unimaginable living without Fido for even one day, it may be in your best
interest as a seller to have your pet stay with a close friend or family member
while trying to sell your home. Additionally, it may be a good investment to have any
carpeting professionally cleaned to get rid of any pet odors that you may be
immune to but buyers would surely notice!
