How To Sell Your Home Faster and for More Money
Here are two mistakes to avoid when trying to sell your home.
Are you looking to sell your home but are a little worried about the condition of the market? Interest rates are higher, there's less demand and excitement from buyers, and there are fewer buyers in the market. However, sometimes people need to sell their homes no matter what the market is doing. If that’s you, you should know that there are two mistakes you need to avoid that will make a huge difference in how quickly your home sells and for how much:
1. Don’t price your home incorrectly. Finding the right price is always the most important thing when selling a home. Recently, homes have been selling for crazy prices, and sellers didn’t have to worry about their prices as much, but that isn’t true anymore. Today, buyers are more discerning, and they’ll see through your price if it is too high. They’ll know they won’t have much competition and give you a lowball offer.
That is why we have been coaching sellers on how to find a realistic price that will make more people see the property, and get the highest price. To do this, we look at the most recent sales in our area. With the correct price, you can end up getting a higher offer.

2. Don’t forget to stage your home. As there are fewer buyers in the market, the remaining ones know they can be pickier. Recently, buyers were willing to overlook cleanliness and other issues to get a house, but they don’t have to do that anymore. You’ll need to ensure your home is as tidy as it can be.
If you want to sell your home, having it priced properly for the market and in show-ready condition will be the two easy things that will make a huge difference.
