Tips on Selling in Today's Market
The real estate market is hot - properties are selling fast and at fair prices. "Right-priced" properties get multiple offers quickly. It's fine to set the asking price a bit on the high side, but over-priced properties tend to "sit there" until the inevitable price drops come. In the meantime, the seller has lost valuable time in closing a sale that frees up funds to buy that next "dream house."
Curb appeal is critical. Don't let potential buyers who want to buy NOW drive past your house because it doesn't have that "buy me appeal." Invest some sweat equity and a few bucks into sprucing up the yard and your front door. Maybe some paint! And - keep the interior clean, neat, odor free, and remove pets for showings. Remember, you are competing for that buyer, one who may already have two or three homes on a short list!
