Are you planning on selling your Southern California home? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
During the spring and summer months of 2017, the Real Estate market in Southern California is going to be very competitive thanks to demand for homes in SoCal, rising mortgage interest rates, and the urgency that some buyers may feel to purchase homes before rates continue to increase.
A competitive real estate market also means that you may be able to sell your home fast, and this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as long as you sell your home for a great price.
If you want to sell your home fast, and for the most money possible, this article will provide you with tips you can use for getting your house ready for sale so you can accomplish these goals.
Tip #1 – Make Sure Your Home Is Impeccable Before Showing It
This is the most important tip we can offer you because first impressions count in Real Estate, and you want your home to be in “model condition” so that buyers want to submit their best offers without any reservations about if your home is right for them or not.
Some of the things you can do to ensure that your home is in the best condition possible before you list it include:
- Painting your house inside and out.
- Installing new flooring if needed.
- Fixing anything in your home that’s broken.
- Replacing burned out light bulbs.
- Cleaning all of the windows in your home.
- Updating your kitchen by refinishing or repainting cabinets and replacing cabinet/drawer hardware.
- Improving curb appeal.
- Cleaning and staging your home for sale.
Tip #2 – Set The Right Price For Your Home
Once your home is ready for showing, the next important thing to do is for you to determine your asking price.
Choosing the right price isn’t something that most buyers are able to easily do themselves because their friends, family members or co-workers may tell them to ask for X, while their advisors will tell them to ask for Y.
Some sellers may look online and use websites like Trulia or Zillow to determine their asking price based on comparable date from homes that have sold recently nearby and the reality is that many of these Real Estate websites rarely have accurate data.
To determine what you should ask for your home you should hire an experienced Real Estate agent who specializes in Southern California Real Estate and can help you list your home for the correct price and ultimately sell it for the most money possible.
