Be sure to be flexible and negotiate with your potential buyers when selling your home. Your home may feel like it is more valuable than it is, due to sentiment, but that doesn’t mean that is what you will receive. Have a discussion with your agent about a fair price for your home.
You can promote the sale of your home by including extras in the price. Similar to offers that throw in a free major appliance with a new home, these offers can really do the trick. Offering up something special on top of the purchase of the home can be just the sway that you need to seal the deal. Just look at what’s highly demanded but within your budgetary reach, and then include it in the closing deal. This will greatly influence your success rate.
If you need full service from a real estate agent in selling your house, you will need to give him the “exclusive right to sell” your house. That means he will advertise and market your house and list it in the Multiple Listing Service. When your house sells, he will earn a commission. Think about rejuvenating the appearance of your bathroom before selling your house. Replace dated lighting and squeaky fixtures. If you give the bathroom a feeling of relaxation, such as could be experienced at a spa, the buyer can more readily imagine themselves enjoying their time in the room.
Shine all of your plumbing fixtures before showing your home. Potential buyers will touch everything, including faucets and trim. Worn out looking fixtures will not give a favorable impression, and yes the viewer will notice. It can help a lot if they have a shiny appearance. If you can’t clean your fixtures, replace them. Make sure to get feedback from potential buyers at an open house. You can either ask potential buyers to fill out a card or talk to you directly about their experiences. You can use negative feedback to makes changes in order to get your home sold.
