TIPS ON SELLING YOUR HOME
June 21, 2017
Selling your home in Missouri may seem like a challenging task. After all, buying a home is a huge investment, and many people enter into sales cautiously to ensure they’re making the right decision. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to present your home in the best possible light and attract an array of interested buyers.
According to Forbes, throwing in some financial incentives to buyers can have a real impact on how quickly your home is sold. In this case, you can offer a transferrable home warranty capable of covering the new owner’s appliances for a period of one year after the sale. You can also provide money to help cover closing costs, which can be very expensive. In this case, you can cover part of the cost or pay for the closing in full to facilitate the process.
You should also consider whether your home is priced appropriately. Use data on the prices for other homes in your area to get a feel for whether you are asking for too much. You can also consult a real estate agent, who will be able to provide insight on home prices. However, you should avoid pricing your home too low, as this will negatively impact your bottom line (even if it does attract more buyers).
The Balance also has a few helpful tips on selling your home. When staging a house for potential buyers, make it a point to remove highly personal items so that others can actually see themselves in your home. You should also see to any minor repairs (such as leaking faucets or burned out bulbs) before showing your home. While these issues aren’t major, they could potentially put off a buyer.
