5 Secrets to Selling Your Home in the Coming Year!

Start doing these six things now to sell your home this coming year.

While it may not feel like it yet, the winter selling season will be here before you know it. The work you do now in preparation can make a huge difference when the time comes to attract the right home buyer. Here are six tips for selling your home to get you started and help you prepare for real estate success this coming year.

If you want to make the most of the upcoming selling season, then the best thing you can do is to start making your preparations today. 

  1. Create Curb Appeal – You want potential buyers to be impressed from the moment they pull up to your house. Make sure that your yard is clean, your lawn is healthy and the front entrance to your home has a fresh coat of paint. Adding some attractive, colorful plants is a great way to boost curb appeal.

  2. Downsized Decorating – While a bit of decorating is fine when your home is for sale, it's generally better to go for a more minimalist touch. Buyers want to be able to project what their life will be like in your home and that's easier to do when you give them a blank slate to work with.

  3. Targeted Upgrades – You can improve the marketability of your home without making major renovations if you know where to look. It's never a bad idea to focus on the kitchen and bathroom when making minor upgrades because they are often the first places a buyer looks when deciding if they're interested in your home.

  4. Setting a Realistic Price – Your real estate agent can provide you with a local real estate market analysis to help you determine the listing price for your home. The most important thing is to be realistic when setting a price – low enough to avoid scaring off potential suitors, but high enough to get you a solid return on your investment. Your agent can help you strike that balance. For a free home value report (Naples Florida home owners) please click here.

  5. Simply Social – Social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and Youtube are a great way to spread the word that your home is for sale. Friends and family will often be happy to share your listing with any house hunters they know, and it only takes a few moments to post your listing on your social pages. Best of all, it doesn't cost you a dime.

Selling your home is all about preparation, and there's no better time to get started. Follow our six home selling tips to hit the ground running, and be sure to lean on the expertise of your real estate agent whenever you're in need of advice.
