In today’s economic climate, selling a home in the Dallas/Highland Village area requires some “special care”. It is essential that you do all that you can to grab the attention of a potential buyer and keep their attention focused on your home or property. The fact is, potential homebuyers typically look at several homes in a single day, so it’s important that yours stands apart from the rest in some way. In making your home attractive and unique, you stand a better chance of attracting more reasonable offers for your property.
Here are a few tips to help make selling your Highland Village real estate easier:
- Don’t choose the first real estate agent that makes impossible promises of selling your home for big bucks. Unfortunately, some agents will over-inflate the value of your home to get your hopes up that it will sell for much more than you anticipate, then reduce the price when your home does not sell at the original value set. Shop around for a reputable, trusted realtor.
- Make certain your realtor highlights the advantages of living in the neighborhood where your home is located. Your real estate agent should inform the potential buyer of certain aspects such as low crime rates, good schools/shopping, if there is a neighborhood crime watch, etc.
- Be sure your home is in good repair. Roof or floor damage, and other damage that would be costly to repair, will make a potential buyer think twice about buying your home, no matter how much they love it. If your home needs a major repair, take care of it before you list it on the market.
- Seduce the buyer – buyers want to feel the mood. It may sound silly, but how your home makes a buyer feel is just as important as square footage, price and location. Your home should be in tip-top shape, clean, fresh smelling and inviting. Your realtor can help you with the “feel” and atmosphere of your property.
