3 Keys To Selling Your Atlanta Home

just sold 400 - 3 keys to selling your atlanta homeIf you have been reading about the real estate market for a long time, you might know that at some point, selling homes have become difficult. However, according to The National Association of Realtors, 2014 is the best year to sell your home as homes are spending fewer days this year even though most mortgage rates increase. Some homes are taking a long while to get sold and if you are one of them, there may be reasons why your home doesn’t sell. That can be fixed!

Your Asking Price Should be Competitive

Most of the homes that don’t sell are priced way too high for their actual value. Some sellers have the tendency to ask for a higher selling price due to sentimentality, a factor which shouldn’t affect the actual value of the home. On the other hand, some sellers ask too low, just enough for them to pay off the mortgage or get a good enough down payment on their next home, which isn’t a good strategy as well. The best thing to deal with this is to speak to real estate agents that cover your area and have them help you. What they will do is create a Comparative Market Analysis to get a proper value for your home. This process involves comparing recent sale prices of homes that are similar to yours in your neighborhood. A good, competitive price will bring in buyers.

Keep Your Home Clean and Well Maintained

There is an old adage that goes: “first impressions last” and basically, your home’s first impression relies in home showing. Parts of the home selling/buying process are open houses and home showings, so it is important that you get rid of all the clutter in your home. It may sound petty but some potential home buyers pass on a house just because they don’t like how the home is dirty. They get turned off by dust, dirty plates, mildew, etc. Another thing that you have to take note of is to make your home look simple and neutral. A neon pink kitchen may look good to you but not to others. Start a clean slate.

Commit to a High Quality Real Estate Agent

Even if you follow the steps above, if you are not getting enough showing or offer then you’re not going to be able to sell your home. Gathering buyers is mostly your real estate agent’s responsibility, so if you’re not getting any prospects then you’re just wasting thousands of dollars in an agent that doesn’t help you. As Dave Ramsey would say, “get a High Octane Real Estate Agent.”  Which is what the Jarvis Team is!
