When selling Windsor houses, my number one goal is to get the best price for my client. Without a doubt, I want my client offered a price that makes them do cartwheels. Many sellers come to me today just convinced that they won’t make any money on their home in today’s buyer’s market. But they may very well be wrong. Here are some ways to NOT lose money when selling Windsor houses!
1. Hire a good real estate agent. It goes without saying that sellers must hire an experienced, professional agent to sell their home. Don’t hire an agent who promises you the moon yet is willing to do little. In most cases, it can end up costing the seller MORE money by hiring an agent that doesn’t know what they are doing.
2. Price your home accordingly. The longer your home sits on the market, they more “damaged” it looks. Buyers assume something is wrong with the property if it has been for sale too long. We work with sellers of Windsor houses to find the right price by looking at the comparative sales, knowing the neighborhood and touring open homes in the area when necessary. Research is critical.
3. Prepare your home. It may take some elbow grease and some money, but it is very important to have your house spotless and in excellent condition. Create good curb appeal and repair as much as you can afford. If you don’t have the necessary funds, then be prepared to lower the price. But there are many things you can do on a budget that make a world of difference. Study home staging guides online and see the advantages of making your home look bigger, less cluttered and more appealing to buyers.
4. Finally, be ready to negotiate. Don’t automatically refuse an offer just became in too low. You can always negotiate fees, home warranty costs (if buyer wants you to purchase) include furniture if buyers desires it, but usually, there are ways to make an offer work if you are ready to sell your home.
