Are you selling your home in 2016? If so, you may be wondering how to get the best possible sale price for your home.
After all for most of us, it’s our largest lifetime asset and we only get one chance to sell it.
You need to remove buyer objections by cleaning, decluttering and fixing your home but you will be leaving money on the table for the buyer if you don’t then consider the cosmetic improvements and property styling that will complete the home staging process.
Home Staging can return between 7%-17% on a home sale and is among one of the highest returns on investments you can make when preparing to sell your home. Let’s look at an example:
Example: You are expecting your home to sell for $600,000, if staged, you might then expect to get between $642,000 to $702,000 your home.
In the Jim’s Guide to Selling your Home for More we cover the key strategies and steps you should undertake to sell your home for more. Download the guide free, now.
Here are just a few of the strategies you need to get right covered in detail in the guide:
- Know the market better than anyone else.
Don’t rely on the advice of well-meaning friends and family to tell you what your property is worth. Consider getting your own valuation or subscribing to a property information service that gives you inside information on recent sales in your area.
- Choose the right agent.
The right agent is not the one quoting the most your house might sell for. If you’ve done step one you’ll know yourself what is a realistic appraisal and you won’t be tempted to simply go with the estate agent who suggests the best price.
- Prepare your home for sale.
This should include at least a major declutter, extensive cleaning, repairs and you might want to consider some quick cosmetic improvements that are most likely to give you a reliable, strong return on investment.
