I’m sure you’ve heard about this crazy seller’s market we’re experiencing in the Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach area (and everywhere else it seems), so if you’re considering listing your home, here are tips to sell your home for top dollar!
My name is Capprice Kitchen with Pineywoods Realty and I’m excited to give you the tips you need to get the most bang for your buck when you sell!
Number One: Make Buyers Feel at Home:
One of the best ways to get an offer quickly and for top dollar is to do everything you can to help buyers picture themselves living in your home! Take time to declutter, paint walls neutral colors, and remove unique décor that may turn away buyers. Remember, we all don’t have the same likes and dislikes and you’d be surprised what little details may turn away a buyer.
Sidebar – My husband is a huge University of Tennessee fan and when we listed our house in Brentwood, TN, the real estate agent told us we should probably remove all of the UT memorabilia from the home office. He shared an Alabama fan might not buy the house b/c a Tennessee fan owned the house. My husband’s reply, “I wouldn’t sell it to an Alabama fan anyway”. He was joking, but as ridiculous as it sounds, you truly never know what may turn a buyer away.
Number Two: Give Buyers Access
Buyers are less likely to make an offer on your home if they can’t easily schedule a time to do a walk through or schedule inspections. Make your home available as often as you can so buyers can work around tight schedules, kiddos, and even travel. The more eyes on your house, the better.
Number Three: Price It Right
Even in a sellers’ market, it’s SO important to price your home accurately. Pricing too high will turn buyers away and lose valuable time on the market. You want to make sure you’re working with a trusted realtor who can help you decide on a price that’s right for you and potential buyers!
Here’s the bottom line:
If you want to sell your home and make the most you can, work hard to appeal to buyers from start to finish! A great agent will guide you through the listing process and will help you get your home sold quickly and for top dollar!
