In the Lehigh Valley demand for a home is up and home inventory is down. Many boomers and seniors looking to move or downsize are in the driver’s seat. 2017 is shaping up to be one of the best opportunities for home sellers in recent years. If you are selling your home here are a few tips to maximize the value of one of your largest assets.
Prepare. Have a professional walk through your home and give you candid feedback about how your home shows. Do you need to de-clutter, reorganize, paint, repair or even stage your home? Making minor repairs and showing your home in the best possible condition positions you to receive strong offers on the property.
Market. As in any facet of sales, it is imperative to get your home in front of as many people as possible and receive maximum exposure. This means signage offline and visibility online including leveraging the MLS system and affiliated web sites, Zillow.com, Homes.com and others.
Stay on Schedule. Just as location is important, so is timing. It is important to stay on schedule. Whether listing your home, hosting open houses, scheduling home inspections or negotiating, it is important to keep the process moving.
Dedication from a Real Estate Agent. Guiding a seller through a successful sale is best done by those who have done it many times before. Knowing the ins and outs of selling a home is best left to the professionals. A real estate agent has a team a professionals from home inspectors, insurance, title, mortgage professionals and more. Stay on track and increase the probability for the best possible outcome with a real estate professional.
