In 2014 most Orange County homeowners have either sold their homes and upgraded to a bigger homes or they are thinking about selling.
Although selling a home in Irvine is exciting you may encounter big problems which could keep buyers away or stop your home from receiving offers.
The good news is that even though problems may occur during the sale of your home you can easily eliminate them with this simple problem solving checklist.
Problem 1 – You’ve Priced Your Home Too High
Ask any Realtor and they will tell you that price is one of the biggest reasons a home doesn’t sell. Today’s buyers can look up recent sales online themselves and know that it’s overpriced.
You should consider pricing your home slightly under its market value or right at market value to let the market determine its value. This will be more likely to encourage multiple offers to be placed on your home and therefore maximize the amount you can get for the home.
Problem 2 – Your Home Looks Run Down
If your house looks run down from the street a buyer will almost always think that your Irvine home needs work and drive on to the next home for sale.
To capture the attention of more buyers you should do your best to improve the landscaping of your home by doing a property clean up, planting new flowers, laying sod and painting your front door.
A well-maintained landscape will motivate more home buyers to get out of their cars and check out the real potential which your home has to offer them.
Problem 3 – You Didn’t Remove “You” From Your Home
One common problem which many homeowners have to deal with during the process of selling their homes is that they forget to de-personalize their homes.
Removing personal features and staging your home to sell so it looks more like a “product” than your much loved family home is important because, a potential home buyer has to first envision themselves living in your home and they won’t be able to do that if they can’t see past your personal “stamp” which you’ve left there.
