Selling Your Home: How to Get the Best Buyer
Selling your home is a great undertaking that takes time and dedication to find the best buyer. But if you’re wondering where to get started, here are a few tips to help you get the best price and hopefully the ideal buyer for your beloved home.
1. Set a Realistic Price
Often, the biggest deal-breaker for potential buyers is the price. Thinking about all the home improvements you’ve made throughout the years can add to its value but you also have to think of the market, location and other factors.
If you’re bent on selling your home fast, think like a buyer. They will most likely gloss over your listing if they see that your home is above their price range.
However, if you price accordingly after checking all factors, you could get the best buyer.
2. Upgrade Your Home Accordingly
Quick fixes here and there are important in selling your home - future home buyers want to see if their previous owner is diligent in keeping the house in tip-top shape. Major fixer-uppers like kitchen remodels are just fine especially if it does need big repairs.
But if you do an entire home upgrade, think about it: will you get your dollar back for every project you spent on? While modernising your home is always a good idea, try not to over-do it as you might not get the return on your investment should you decide to sell your home.
3. Have a Flexible Appointment Schedule
Many home buyers like to meet current owners as they give a better narrative of the home they’re thinking of buying. Other times sellers give buyers space to get a better feel of the home without influencing the buyer’s opinions.
After all, they chose that home out of dozens of listings for different reasons. If you can’t set a schedule for home viewings, they might lose their interest in buying your home.
On your listing, indicate the hours your home will be available for showings - let’s say on weekends after 1pm or weekdays after 5:30pm. This way potential buyers can set expectations and clear out their own schedule to view your home.
4. Work with Experienced Real Estate Professionals
Selling your home will be hard, even with all the free websites that allow you to place a listing with a few clicks. It’s true that online listings get you some level of exposure, but can you go through everyone interested in your home?
However, it is still important to hire experienced real estate professionals to narrow down the prospective buyer list and talk to those who are really intent on viewing your home, help you in talking about inspections and negotiations and other home selling assistance and services.
