When it comes to listing and selling your home in Southern California, the first 30 days are the most critical and it’s important for you to have the right strategy for selling your home.
During this time 90% of buyers will be actively reviewing your home on the Internet and if your home is missing what they are searching for, or it doesn’t have the right elements to help it sell quickly, your home could sit on the market for a lot longer than you originally expected.
What Is Your Strategy?
One of the keys to success for selling your home quickly not just during the first 30 days, but during the first 7 days that it on the market, is have the right strategy that helps to ensure it will sell quickly.
Some of the important components that make up a successful home sales strategy are the following:
• Great photos – Since the Internet will play an important role in selling your home the photos that are taken of your home must be shot by a professional who understands the importance of lighting and can capture all of the great elements of your home that would interest buyers.
• Your home must be de-cluttered – Before potential home buyers set foot in your home it must be de-cluttered. Having less “stuff” in your home will make your home seem bigger and more desirable to buyers.
• Stage your home – Staging is also another important aspect to selling your home because you will be arranging your furniture to set the mood in each room so a buyer can see themselves living there.
• Decide on the right price – Last of all, but most important, before you list your home it’s important for you to agree on the list price with your Realtor. Overpricing your home is not the best idea, especially in this Real Estate market where prices are changing so quickly.
Last of all, but most important, although strategy is vital when it comes to selling your home it’s also important to be flexible as well and be willing to show your home when your Realtor has interested buyers.
