Follow These Tips When You List Your Wake County Home
Price it right. We can’t say this enough: pricing your home correctly right out the gate is paramount to getting it sold in a reasonable amount of time. That’s because buyers really do have a deep appreciation for a good value. Plus, if you price your home slightly less than your neighbors around you, you’re sure to attract much more home buyer attention than them.
Leave your closets half empty. It’s the little things that matter. If you leave your closets half empty (and neatly organize the contents that remain), you’ll give buyers the impression that your home has a huge storage capacity. And really, you can never have too much storage!
Let there be light. Maximize the light in your home by opening up the windows, turning on every light in your house, changing old burned-out light bulbs and increasing the wattage of those light bulbs. By doing this, you not only make your home appear more bright and cheery, but also make it feel for spacious.
Carefully select the right real estate agent to represent you. We recommend interviewing at least a couple of agents to get a feel for whether they have experience selling in your neighborhood, selling in your price range, etc. Having an experienced real estate expert on your side who has a track record for getting results is invaluable on the Wake County real estate market.
Leave no trace of your pets. For animal lovers, this may be a hard one to swallow. But it’s important to remove your pets (and all of their toys, food, etc) from your house when you’re showing it. After all, not everyone is an animal lover and you don’t want buyers worrying about whether Mr. Whiskers has scratched up any part of the house or if Fido has ever had an accident inside the house. Don’t worry, as soon the showing is over, your pets can return!
Always be prepared for a showing. You never know when a new home buyer is going to be scrolling through the mls when they find your home and want to schedule a showing. So keep your home show-ready at all times. This means that you should be extra cautious about leaving dishes in the sink or leaving your dirty clothes in the bathroom. Clean up as you go and it won’t be as overwhelming when a buyer schedules a last minute showing.
