These days sellers can be a little uneasy and hesitant when it comes to listing their home. The prevailing prejudice is that you will surely take a hit. However, that is simply not the case. Having a good sales strategy combined with an intelligent purchase of your new property can make certain you get the most bang for your buck!
Here are 4 ways to get the most out of selling:
1. Seek Expert Advice
When selling your home, there are three key factors to consider—price, condition and location. You can’t control location, but you can overcome price and condition. Price will always be the most important because condition can be overlooked if the price is right. Our agents at Rock River Realty can help you make sure that your home is properly staged and priced realistically within your market.
2. Don’t Hesitate
In real estate, time is money! In today’s market, your best offer is the one you get today. The longer you wait, the more likely you’ll need to lower your price. It’s also time you’ll have to continue paying the mortgage, taxes and other expenses for the property. So, don’t wait thinking a better offer will come. The best offers are usually made when when the property first hits the market and is priced at your agent’s recommendation.
3. Focus on the Present
The real estate market is always changing. Concerning yourself with where the market was last year or even six months ago is not going to help sell your house today. Your house is not contending with other properties that sold in your area over six months ago. Our agents at Rock River Realty will be able to walk you through the current market data and can assist you in identifying a successful price point for your home.
4. Buy Intelligently
Even if you end up selling your home for lower than your asking price, you can make up the difference on the purchase of your new home. Our agents at Rock River Realty can help you find the home that fits your needs and negotiate the best price on your behalf. Let us help you set up your strategy today!
