When it comes to selling a home, first impressions matter. A well-maintained and clean home is more likely to attract potential buyers and fetch a higher price. In fact, studies have shown that a well-staged home can sell for up to 20% more than an unstaged home. Before putting a house on the market, it's important to make sure it's in the best possible condition to appeal to buyers. This means thoroughly cleaning and repairing any damage, as well as making necessary upgrades to increase the home's value. By taking the time to spruce up the property, homeowners can ensure they get top dollar for their home and a quicker sale.
#1 Hire the Right Real Estate Agent
Selecting the right real estate agent is especially important when selling a home. A knowledgeable and experienced agent can help price the property correctly, market it effectively, and negotiate the best possible deal for you. They can also offer valuable advice on how to make necessary repairs, stage the home for showings, and navigate any potential issues that may arise during the sales process. Additionally, a well-connected agent can help ensure that your property is exposed to the right audience, increasing the likelihood of a quick and profitable sale. When choosing a real estate agent to help sell your home, it's important to look for someone who has a proven track record of success, is knowledgeable about the local market, and has excellent communication skills.

#2 Highlight Your Home's Best Features
Whether it's a great view, a spacious kitchen or a beautifully renovated bathroom, make sure to highlight your home's best features in your marketing materials.
#3 Price Your Home Competitively
Be sure to price your home competitively to attract more potential buyers. If you price it too high, you may miss out on potential buyers who are looking for homes in your price range. You limit the chance of a bidding war when you price too high.
#4 Use Professional Photos
High quality photos make your home look more attractive to potential buyers. Hiring a professional photographer is a critical stage of the process.
#5 Make Any Necessary Repairs
A home in good condition will undoubtedly attract more potential buyers. Sometimes we might have small aesthetic change recommendations such as painting or hiring staging. These can be instrumental in bringing in $1,000s more for your home.
#6 Negotiate Your Commission
Usually the percentages to sell a home are 6%. So that means 3% commission goes to one agent and 3% goes to the other agent. At Real Estate Conncations, we only take home 1% which saves you an incredible amount of money.
