You’re ready to sell your home, but setting the right price takes doing your homework to ensure you get the amount or more of what it’s worth. So, how do you go about it? Read about the top tips for selling your home for top dollar.
Aggressively price your home
The most important decision you will make when you choose to sell is setting your price right. Go too low, and you leave money on the table, conversely, going too high may turn off buyers in the marketplace. It’s essential to price your home aggressively, not being too conservative, so look at your competitor’s home listings. Be honest with yourself. When you can compare homes in your area to your home and see it from the perspective of a home buyer, you can better ascertain what your home’s best value proposition is for buyers in the marketplace.
Use price points
A price point is a point on a scale of possible prices in which something might be marketed. So when a buyer walks into an agent’s office, they usually don’t announce they want to see homes priced at a specific price. Five to ten thousand dollar increments traditionally separate it. Keep that in mind when pricing your home and consider setting your price near one of these natural price points. So, if someone places a price of $310,900, it might widen the buyer pool if they set a price point below that at $305,900, which is the next price point down.
Think about value range marketing
Value range marketing is another pricing technique that may be the ticket to getting more showings. The key is choosing a listing price based on what you would sell it for today if the buyer wrote you a check. It’s usually a starting point, but one you wouldn’t reject if offered. So even though you have a specific price, you want to set your price at, negotiating towards a middle ground brings more buyers.
Offer a bonus to agents
The seller or buyer’s agent is what brings a buyer to your home. Providing some sort of incentive, such as a bonus, shows these agents you’re serious and motivates them to show your home more frequently. You may not like offering more money to an agent, but it could just be the push needed to get your home sold at top dollar.
Stage the home and use curb appeal
If you’re serious about getting top dollar for your home, then show an agent you’re serious by staging your home and using curb appeal. Repainting or remodeling a room, maybe adding on to the home or buying new furniture or changing the decor, all help increase your home’s value. Also, improving the curb appeal makes a huge difference. A potential buyer who sees a manicured lawn or a colorful flower garden in summer or a snowman built on fresh snow, helps them to visualize living there and making memories.
