Tips for Selling your Home Quick in 2016!Terry Riffe | January 6, 2016
Here are some tips for selling your home quick in 2016…
If you have waited until the new year to put your home on the market, the time has come and there are some very important tips to keep in mind to sell your home quick. There are a few variables that will be impacting the housing market in 20016. Firstly, the Feds raised the interest rate for the first time in many years. While the initial reaction may be slow to come, it will come. Another factor for 2016 – it’s an election year. While there may be other factors that will come into play this year, these two alone are worth paying attention to. So, if you are planning to put your house on the market in 2016, here are a few tips that can put you ahead of the others…
- Price your home right. Prices have been rising for a few years now, but are beginning to plateau. You will need to be realistic about your asking price. Be sure that you price it at or below the current market to get maximum interest.
- Stage your home. This is always a good idea, but especially in a buyer’s market. Along with staging your home, you will want to be sure to do a deep clean. If you are too busy or just don’t want to do a deep clean, higher someone. Be sure that every room has a purpose, clean walkways and declutter. If a buyer comes into your home and has the feeling they may have extra work to do upon moving in, they may just pass.
- Prepare your home for the weather. If you are planning on putting your home on the market during the winter months, be sure that you take the steps necessary to ensure your home is comfortable during the adverse weather. Setting thermostats to a comfortable temperature, cleaning gutters, making sure walkways are clean of any ice or snow are all ways of ensuring potential buyers have a easy, cozy feeling when viewing your home.
