Are You Interested In Professional Realtor Tips For Selling Your Home?
In this new video, The Corcoran Connection founder Jeanine Corcoran is sharing tried and tested realtor tips for selling your home.
Tip #1: Invest in the services of a professional photographer.
According to Jeanine, more than 90% of buyers look online first. And if they are not impressed by what they see, they will not want to go and see it. From experience, she has, in fact, had clients turn down a suggested viewing because of poor-quality photos online. Keep in mind that even if your intent is to make some money by selling your home, it is still an investment. You have to spend some to stand out in a competitive real estate market.
Tip #2: Clean and stage your home.
For obvious reasons, it is important that you clean your home before putting it out on the market. But that’s just the first step. The next part—staging—is just as important. Staging is the process of dressing up the home for sale. Read more about it here.
Tip #3: Learn how to price your home right.
Jeanine notes that, even with the pandemic, houses are “flying off” the market, if the price is right. Work with a trusted broker to make sure you’re on the right range. The goal is to get good offers. If you’ve overpriced your home, you’ll be left on the market.
More Pro Realtor Tips To Keep In Mind
- Try not to get too emotional. It’s understandable if you feel nostalgic about letting go of your home, especially if it’s the first one you bought. This is important because it can get in the way of rational decisions, like pricing or reviewing offers. Focus on your goal, and how achieving them will make you feel.
- Don’t expect to get your asking price. Buyers will negotiate, and part of the selling process is learning how to do so as well. If you have an agent, you can work with them on your pricing strategy. You want your list price to be attractive enough while still leaving room for likely counteroffers.
- Check for a pre-approval letter or proof of funds. Don’t feel like you’re putting off potential buyers by asking about their source of funds. It’s fair, reasonable, and pretty standard.
- Make sure you have insurance. The last thing you want is an accident within your property, which affects your listing and makes you liable for injury or damages. Before opening your house for viewing, ensure that there are no hazards. It also helps to enforce some ground rules while viewing, for the safety of both parties.
