5 Tips for Selling Your Home in Today’s Market

Regardless of what you hear over the news, today really is a good time to sell your property.  Demand is high in Toledo Oh, supply is declining and our market is shaping up very positively. I’ll show you how to take advantage of today’s market and get your property sold!

1st Price It Right:

You’ve heard it a million times, but it’s the truth.  This is the biggest contributor to your home selling.  If you price it too high, your home will sit on the market and become stale.  In certain neighborhoods you have to be careful not to price it too low.  Buyers may think something is wrong or it won’t appeal to the higher-end buyers.  Sounds funny, but it’s true.

2nd Hire A Pro:

Don’t stress about pricing it right.  Hire a Realtor (like myself, *wink, wink) to help you with that.  I will be able to market your home to potential buyers to get them in the door and get it sold!

3rd First Impressions Are Everything:

Take the time to spruce up the exterior.  Trim the landscaping – think clean and simple. If you are in a condo make sure your entryway is clear, windows are washed, doors are cleaned and doorknobs and hardware are clean and polished. You want to make the first thing a buyer touches to be a positive experience.

4th Light And Bright:

This is where a minor investment might return greater profits.  If you have uniquely painted and tailored your home to your tastes, that might be what 99% of buyers DON’T want.  Don’t take it personally, focus on selling the home!  Light and neutral paint colors always open up the space and appeal to a wide range of buyers.  If you have very dark flooring, light walls would be a contrast and give you a very modern look.  Other times, you will need to consider lighter carpet or different flooring.  These are minor updates that will only cost a couple thousand dollars, but should be a high return on your investment.

5th Reduce And Remove:

Spring cleaning is now!  Get rid of all excess items.  Clean out your closets and remove trinkets from counter space throughout the home.  Clean the house top to bottom and extra clutter should be boxed into storage.  Your home will have a free-flowing feeling making buyers very comfortable.  To the detriment of sellers, this is often overlooked; don’t be one of those sellers!
