4 Tips To Make Your Listing Stand Out From The Crowd

Engage With A Real Estate Professional

Real estate agents are here for a reason! Many people try to sell their property without one because they do not want to pay commission. 

Unfortunately, selling a property without professional help often results in increased stress and thousands of dollars lost on the sale. You also might be out of your element when it comes to reviewing and understanding important documents and selling processes. An agent is far more familiar with the proceedings required for selling your property, making the process a breeze. 

Real estate agents are also legally obligated to keep your best interest in mind. This duty implies a very high standard for confidentiality. Buyers will be far less willing to hand over confidential financial information to a seller without a real estate agent, as they are under no obligation to keep this information to themselves. By hiring a real estate professional, you will not only have confidence in selling your property; you will also be giving potential buyers the confidence to buy your property.

Stage Your Property

Empty rooms are dull and boring, but cluttered rooms can also turn off potential buyers. The latter want to envision the space as their own; staging accomplishes this by setting up the home in a way that is trendy and attractive. A well-presented home can often increase the chances of a sale. Remember, you only get one chance at a first impression! And, in the real estate market, first impressions are everything. 

Get Professional Photos Taken

Just because you have an iPhone with a new camera does not mean you are qualified to take professional, high-quality photos of your property. High-quality photos act as a magnet to potential buyers. Poorly lit, low-quality photos, on the other hand, can drive away potential buyers. 

Professional photographers can enhance the photos to make them more visually appealing to the market. Buyers will also want to see every angle and different views of the spaces on your property, so make sure you provide enough photos to satisfy the buyers' needs—especially if they cannot see the property in person.

Find That Special Something

When buyers are faced with comparable properties, the one they will choose will have a special “it” factor. This can be a beautiful view of the city, a treehouse in your backyard, an incredible location, and many other things. Finding your property's “it” factor will help your listing stand out and have buyers interested. Think about what makes your home unique and run away with it!

When is the best time to sell my home?
Every real estate market is different. Therefore, selling a home will be different from community to community. In most cases, the spring months are the best time to start selling your property. Every seller's situation is different, so it is best to discuss the timing of your home sale with your real estate agent.

How do you determine the selling price of my home?
There are a handful of strategies that real estate agents use to determine the selling price of your home. The most common method entails conducting a market analysis. A comparative market analysis is an in-depth evaluation of recently sold “comparable” homes in the past 6-12 months. Other considerations such as square footage, number of bedrooms, and number of bathrooms help determine the price of your home as well.
