Sell your Home for Top Dollar – The 5 Best Decisions you can Make

Spring is just around the corner, you can already hear more and more lawn signs getting taken out of the trunk of the car and planted in the front yard. If you are thinking of selling your home in the coming season, then you better take notes! Here are the 5 best decisions you can make to sell your home for top dollar. 

The 5 Best Decisions you can Make to Sell your Home for Top Dollar

Make essential repairs to your house

Nobody wants to buy a house that has more damage than it has amenities. Having a leaky faucet, or dented walls would not come across as charming, nor would encourage your potential buyers to make an offer. So make sure to fix any visible damage and any outdated fixture. Before putting up your house for sale, spray a fresh coat of paint on the walls and polish the floor – by doing something as simple as sprucing up these surfaces, you can make any space feel fresh and brand new!

Additionally, IF you have the time and the resources, consider updating/renovating your home’s key features such as the kitchen and bathrooms. These spaces can be key selling points for many buyers.

The 5 Best Decisions you can Make to Sell your Home for Top Dollar

Spruce up the exterior

In order to truly get top dollar from selling your home, you need to consider the exterior of your home too! Having curb appeal is a huge plus for many buyers, so plan on sprucing up your home’s exterior this spring.

From the basic of having the exterior cleaned and power-washed, including your windows, roof, and gutters. And just as with the interior, you can also put on a fresh coat of paint on your exterior walls. Additionally, do not underestimate the power of repainting your front door. Even the most simple update, when executed well can generate a lot of interest during open houses!

Finally, make sure to maintain your lawn at the very least! Additional landscaping can be beneficial as well!

Whether you're a first-time seller or have experience, it's natural to have questions about the process.

Stage the interior

One of the most effective strategies to make sure your home sells for top price is to stage it for sale. 

You need to give your space a new, inviting atmosphere so that anyone who enters can immediately see the space’s potential.

Staging your home can generate increased interest from potential buyers, leading to more offers and a higher probability of a successful sale.

Market your home effectively

Marketing your home effectively is as important as making physical updates and improvements before listing it. Getting the word out there the right way and reaching the right audience about the sale of your home can help you get more offers. 

By utilizing a multi-platform approach involving mail, social media, door-knocking, email follow-up, and open houses (and more!), you can generate great interest to your home.

This comes hand-in-hand with hiring the right real estate agents. Working with a team that knows how to efficiently use these strategies and techniques can help you reach the right buyers, and help you get the maximum return on the sale.

The Price of Real Estate vs. its Value
