Here are three essential tips for selling your Raleigh Durham home quickly and for the most money:
1)It’s a good idea to get a professional home inspection prior to putting your Raleigh Durham home on the market. This allows you to catch any big-ticket items in advance. It may seem odd to get an inspection of your own home. You are probably thinking, “Why would I invest money into a home inspection when the interested buyers can do that instead?” You can go ahead and make these necessary repairs prior to listing your home so you don’t have to readjust the price after you are under contract. Additionally, this shows the buyer that you want to have a smooth transaction and you are being transparent about your home.
2) Just like you want to be sure your Raleigh Durham home is ready on the inside for buyers, you’ll want to make sure the same is true for the outside. Be sure to keep your yard well maintained with the grass mowed, bushes trimmed, keep debris out, and just make it look really nice for buyers. That’s their first impression, so you want it to look great!
3) Get your home staged! This will allow your Raleigh Durham home to sell faster and for more money. If you list with us, we’ll provide a free staging consultation where a professional will come in and give you advice on how to make your home more appealing to buyers. Year after year, staged homes sell for more money than non-staged homes do. The stager can help you see what the buyer might see, instead of just seeing something from your own perspective. Often, they can help you make small adjustments to your furniture placements to make your space feel larger or more open! Lastly, buyers are shopping online for homes. The pictures need to make a fast impression. Having a staged home will catch the eye of more buyers.
