At first, interest was very high on your Windsor property for sale. The crowds came! Then they went. An offer was never made and now, it’s been several weeks since you last had a buyer walk through your home. So what do you do? You want to sell your home as quickly as possible, but can’t imagine what you need to do next. Here are some suggestions to get attention back where it belongs: your Windsor property!
1. Price Aggressively: Now is the time to lower the price of your home if at all possible and make it stand out from the rest of the homes that are for sale. Chances are, interest has died on your Windsor property for sale because it is priced too high. Think how much longer you want to make mortgage payments or if it would be more cost effective to lower the price for a quicker sale.
2. Find the Right Agent: It goes without saying, you need a professional, experienced, social media conscious agent to work hard for your home. A good agent will help you find the right price for your home, do the critical advertising and help showcase your home in the best possible light. If you have hired an agent that is not doing their job, it will only be an added expense for you.
3. Home Staging: If your home is sitting on the market because buyers are overwhelmed with your personality in the home and filled with knick-knacks, large furniture and too much clutter, there is no way a buyer can imagine living there because all they see is your stuff! If needed, add a fresh coat of neutral paint, rearrange furniture to make rooms look larger, pack away anything that is personalized, such as family photos. If necessary, hire a home stager. It may be the best money you ever spent.
4. Offer Incentives: Let’s face it, you want to move, so that may require being flexible. While you may want to close in two months, a buyer may want to close in 30 days. Make it happen. A buyer wants your appliances, but you need them. Make it happen. In other words, if a buyer makes a very reasonable offer and wants you to throw in a few things, consider it if it’s worth moving sooner than you expected just to close the deal.
