Everywhere you look, there’s positive news to share about the Wake County real estate market lately.
Home prices are on the rise, more people are purchasing homes, properties are staying on the market for fewer days before they sell.
Thus, if you’re thinking about listing your property anytime soon, it would be easy to understand why!
Today, I’m going to provide you some valuable tips on how you can sell your property quickly once you do decide to list your property in Wake County.
How to Get Your Wake County Home Sold Quickly
First, make sure that you’re standing out from your neighbors who may also have their homes listed on the market. You may do this by investing in some professional landscaping or adding a new roof to your property. Just make sure that any improvements you make are both practical and neutral in colors and design so that it appeals to the largest audience possible.
Declutter Your Home. Make sure you do this before a single home buyer sets foot in your home. This will not only make your home look nicer and more inviting overall but it will also make your room look much bigger. You might even consider temporarily switching some of your larger furniture with smaller furniture to make your rooms look larger.
Make The Deal Even Sweeter. Another way to attract purchase offers is to offer things or terms within the sale of your home. For instance, you might offer to pay a couple of thousand dollars toward closing costs. Or you might offer to leave the washer and dryer for them. This is an especially useful tactic if it’s more of a buyer’s market but it can benefit you in either case.
Make Your Home More Attractive From the Outside. In the industry, we call this curb appeal. This is the first thing that the buyer is going to see when they drive up to your home so you want to make sure that it leaves a good impression. Consider trimming the bushes, adding a fresh coat to the exterior and power-washing the driveway. The buyer will be saying “Wow” before they even enter the front door!
Price Your Property Right. Sometimes sellers make the mistake of overpricing their property out the gate because they want the wiggle room to be able to negotiate down to the price they always wanted. But buyers may not be willing to stick around for the negotiation phase and may just flat out reject your property. So make sure that you’re setting the right list price. This is mostly determined by looking at the true market value of your home but it also requires that you look at other factors, including comparable sales in the neighborhood. An experienced real estate expert can guide you in this process.
