We know how buying or selling a home can send your anxiety level through the roof!
Here are a few tips we think you’ll appreciate if you’re getting ready to put your home on the market.
Realize that your home should be optimized for searches performed on tablets and smartphones. Today, mobile devices are how most people search for a home, so your listing should be optimized for these devices.
Try to put your emotions aside. Most homeowners become a little sentimental when it comes to selling their homes, which is natural if you lived in it for a substantial number of years and raised a family. However, it’s vital to separate what you consider your “home sweet home” from the investment you made. Letting emotions get in the way can mean the difference between a profitable sale, and a lost sale. When buyers are serious, it often becomes necessary to negotiate – so be prepared.
Make sure you’re ready to sell before you list your home. De-cluttering the mess, thorough cleaning, having a plan for where you will go when your home does sell; all of these things should be taken care of BEFORE you put your home on the market. Also speak with an experienced Dallas real estate agent who can help you with pricing, as most sellers overprice a home when doing it on their own.
Hire the right agent. As with any industry, some professionals have more experience and expertise than others. With the Internet, it’s easy to research an agent’s history, sales activity, and other factors so that you can choose one who will get results.
Include photos and details! This is crucial. Because so many people use the web to search for properties or even receive alerts regarding new listings, it’s important that you make a great first impression. Clear and appealing photos, a thorough description, and data that is accurate is essential.
