If you are selling your home, there are four things you can do to ensure that you get top dollar in today’s market:
1. Pricing: If you price your home correctly from the beginning, you’ll put yourself in a position to draw multiple offers, especially in today’s market. We have a lack of inventory, which means that multiple offers are common and they will drive up your price.
2. Stage your home: You want to make sure that your home smells good, looks nice, and is clean. If your home needs a bit of staging, we can have a home stager come in there. A lot of the time, we can just rearrange pieces that are already in your home to make it look its best.
3. It’s time to sell: We’re hitting the spring market and even though it’s still a little chilly outside, there is a real lack of inventory. Right now, there is less than a 1.5 month supply of inventory, which means that if no new homes came on the market, every home currently on the market would sell within a month and a half. That low inventory presents a great opportunity for you to get top dollar while interest rates are still low.
4. Know your target audience. The fastest growing age group of buyers right now is millennials. They don’t want to buy their parents’ or grandparents’ house, so if you have blue carpet or wallpaper in your home, make sure that you update it. Millennial buyers want clean, crisp, modern spaces.
