How do you entice prospective buyers to seal the deal? Impress them with these four tips, and you will get results!

1. Sales price

A correctly priced house (in the beginning) is the key to selling a home. It really always has been the most important marketing strategy.  Potential buys look for a home that meets their price point and includes their top priorities. Listings becomes "stale" due to improper pricing. A house priced too high may miss potential buyers, especially during the first two weeks it is on the market.   

2. Price your Home accordingly!  Consider the size, condition and location!

A home in an excellent location sells quicker (if it is priced right) and for more money. Buyers seek quality of life in a neighborhood because of the parks, community pools, gyms and supermarkets close to home. Properties close to mass transportation, highways and fewer traffic zones save time, and they can add a lot of lifestyle convenience. This goes for future resale value, too.  We tell our sellers' to try to take a realistic, unemotional, "birdseye view" of their home in order to price it right during it's initial offering.  

3. Fix it up

This is the time to spruce up your house to seal the deal. Odd jobs you’ve put off: do them now. Fix the damaged door hinge, the chipped light switch, and the paint on the garage door. You don’t want a picky buyer to pass on your $300,000 home because they were put off by a spot of peeling paint that made them wonder if anything else is less than tip-top shape. You want to seal the deal instead by doing the little things.

4. Make your home welcoming

Sellers need to present a welcoming atmosphere. This is the best opportunity to showcase the qualities of your home for home buyer viewings so you can seal the deal. Clean up the yard as much as possible. Purchase a nice welcome mat and some potted plants to place around the entrance to the house. If your REALTOR® makes suggestions for staging the home interior—decluttering, moving furniture, maybe painting a wall—heed them. They know the market and they look for your home to measure up.  

If you follow these quick sellers tips it will help get that done sooner, rather than later.  Choose a local realtor who knows the neighborhood, works hard and is ethical.  That is what The McCarty Team offers!
