I’ve put a lot of energy into studying home prices over the last 30 years. Now, thanks to those decades of experience, I’ve developed a strategy to help my clients earn up to 18% more when selling their home than they ordinarily would.
There are five main tips that go into this strategy, and today we’ll be looking at the first two of them. We’ll be covering the rest in future installments, so be sure to keep an eye out for those updates.
For now, let’s discuss the first of our five tips, which is to prepare your home before you sell.
Sellers can earn between 5% to 7% more for their home by following just this one tip. With that in mind, though, you may be wondering what kind of preparations are involved in getting a home ready for the market.
This is where our team’s “upgrade analysis” comes into play. When you work with us to sell your home, we will guide you toward the improvements that we believe will bring you the highest return on your investment.
Once you have the first step out of the way, you can move on to the second, which is to order an inspection up front.
After you get an offer on your home, 80% of the negotiating power is transferred into the buyer’s hands. By ordering a home inspection before accepting an offer, you’ll be able to retain greater control once it comes time to negotiate. Ordering an inspection before listing your home will give you the chance to identify and resolve issues on your own time and your own terms.
If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
