The decision to sell your home is usually not an easier one. However, recent housing data suggests it should be an easier decision in 2021, considering that the average value of a house sold is 13.2% higher than it was in 2020.
With that in mind, you want to make sure that you get fair market value if you decide to sell your home. How do you do that in this housing market?
Well, this is your guide.
Hire the Right Real Estate Agency
The first piece of advice for you is to have a good real estate agent behind you.
Why? Because they can increase the amount of money that you get on your house versus trying to sell the place yourself.
You want to hire a group that has millions, or perhaps billions, of dollars worth of home sales under their belt plus a group that has a reputation for being aggressive and tough to get the best of, such as Leewillbuyit.com.
Having someone with that kind of experience can get you more money for your home than you might have ever imagined.
Look at Similar Houses
One tip for selling your home is to look at how similar houses in your area are priced.
For example, let’s say that both of your houses are in good shape, pretty modern, have four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and are within the same neighborhood. If the other house sells for $350,000, then you can safely assume that you would probably get that much for your house as well if it was very recent.
Looking at other houses is a great way to feel out the market. A real estate agent can give you more specific details about other houses as well such as the condition of the inside of the house than you might be able to find on your own.
This is an important aspect of selling your house because you are forming a first impression on prospective buyers. Curb appeal can mean many different things, starting with photos of the house that people may see online.
You should have a professional photographer take these photos and a real estate agent may know the more flattering angles and parts of the house to show off on the market. Then, there can be smaller things such as mowing the lawn, doing any maintenance on the front of the house, and giving it a fresh coat of paint.
On the inside of the house, you want people to be interested in seeing what else it has to offer. You can do this by cleaning up the front rooms of the house, modernizing the kitchen, and clearing the living room of any clutter.
All of this helps a buyer want to see more and more of your house until they eventually see themselves living in it and make an offer.
