Want To Sell Your House? Make Sure These 6 Things Are Happening

Posted on: 21 July 2017

If you have recently put your home on the market, you likely want to get the process over with as quickly as possible. Selling a home can be stressful, after all. If you are antsy to sell your home, there are six things you can do to make sure that your house is successfully listed on the market:

1. Read your listing with a critical eye.

Real estate agents do their best to write compelling, accurate listings. Still, it is important that you go over the listing to see which factors might be turning potential sellers away from your listing.

2. Examine real estate photos for the do's and don'ts.

Certain types of photos simply do not go well with a real estate listing. For instance, you definitely want a photo from the curb to capture the essence of the home, but you do not want to use the dramatic fish-eye lens. Photos should capture the home's overall atmosphere.

3. Post a video of your house on the web.

A personal tour of the home can add a special touch to the home's marketing. Your real estate agent may choose to include your video as part of the marketing materials that go out to potential buyers.

4. Talk to your neighbors.

Inviting your neighbors to the open house could very well help seal the deal. Let them tell friends and family members about the listing, or simply allow them to meet their potential new neighbors. The possible buyers will feel that they have their very own welcoming committee.

5. Get the house inspected for termites and bugs.

Buyers will feel safe with your listing knowing that the house has already been inspected, especially for termites. Provide as much information about these inspections as you possibly can to put the minds of your buyers at ease.

6. Understand the role of competitive pricing.

Familiarize yourself with other homes in your area and the prices they are selling for. How does your home rate? What does your home offer that the competition does not? Offer pricing that makes your potential buyers do a double-take.

Your real estate agent is doing everything possible to get your real estate listing seen by as many people as possible. If you truly want to see your house sell, discussing these points with your real estate agent may inspire some new ideas that finally seal the deal.
