Best Time To sell Your Home

The best time to sell is when you are ready, or when you must. Events such as outgrowing the space in your current home, or wanting to trade down to something smaller. Perhaps your martial status or job has changed, which necessitates a move.

The ever changing housing market also plays a role, as do seasonal conditions. The opportunity of getting top dollar for your home are more likely in a seller's market, when demand outweighs supply, than in a buyer's market. Economic factors also may dictate when to sell. For example, a major employer in your area is laying off workers, it might not be a good time to put your home up for sale. When the future seems so unpredictable or bleak people are cautious about increasing the amount of household debt.

The best time to sell is in the spring, is well known among agents. This greatest number of potential buyers hit the market during that time. Your home is likely to sell faster and at a higher price in the Spring. Sales begin to pick up as early as February and will begin to slack off in July, the slowest month for real estate transactions.

Setting The Price

A key part of the marketing plan is setting the list price for your property in Middle Georgia. If a home is priced to low, it may cost you money. If a home is priced too high, potential buyers may be scared away. How do you determine the best asking price? You need to review the cost of recently sold homes, evaluate the competition and study marketplace trends. I am trained to use this information to help you reach the right asking price. Discussing with me other terms and conditions, such as timing and items that can be included with the sale of the home can be a great benefit. The goal is to make your home very attractive to potential buyers.


Living RoomIt's time to get your home ready for potential Buyers.
Start with a good cleaning, eliminate any clutter, add a fresh coat of paint and tidy up the yard. Ask me about other tips that can help boost a home's curb appeal. This will impress potential buyers once they're in the door. It will also show your home in a very positive setting when viewed via the internet.
First impressions are very valuable.

Another way to make a home more attractive is to purchase a Home Protection Plan. This insurance protects you, the seller, from paying repair or replacement costs of major items during the listing period. Buyer's are protected during their first year of home ownership when you purchase a Home Protection Plan. Great selling tool.

Be sure you are aware of all the federal, state, and local disclosure laws. This information can be obtained by the specific local and federal government agencies or from me your local Real Estate Agent.


Make Yourself Scarce

As a Seller you need to be flexible. This means being flexible with your showing times. The ability to disappear is part of that flexibility when an agent brings potential buyers to look at your home. it's just better if you can leave the house while prospective buyers browse.

No matter how accommodating you are, most people will feel like they're intruding on your privacy if you are present when they are trying to evaluate your home and compare it to the others they've seen. You want the buyers to feel comfortable in the house. Because of this, they're less likely to linger, less likely to look around as thoroughly, and less receptive toward viewing your home overall.

After they're done, they may also tell you how much they love the house, even if they can't stand it. They're not going to openly discuss things they don't like as they would if it were just them and their agent they don't want to offend you.

Have an escape plan, visit the ice cream shop, take the kids to the local park, walk through the neighborhood, visit a friend you get
the idea.

There are times when it will not be possible to leave, so if you absolutely must stay, do your best to be out of the way. Find one area of the house do not move from room to room. You may also face questions from the homebuyer if so, answer them, but it's inadvisable to volunteer any information.

Don't think that you're doing yourself any favors by sticking around you're not. For more advice on selling your home, talk to me today

Very important, pay special attention to pets, particularly dogs. They can be intimidating. Put them on a leash and in the backyard. Better yet, when possible, take them with you. And be keen to pet odors. They can turn buyers away.

Are There Tips For Selling A Vacant Home

Yes. Once furniture is removed from the home, you will notice all kinds of imperfections you never paid attention to before - rips in the carpet, holes in the walls, and dinginess. In an empty house, everything stands out. What you see is what potential buyers will also see. So you may need to paint, tear up old carpet, and replace the kitchen floor.

To get rid of the "empty house" feeling, leave a few pieces of furniture behind - simple things like a lamp, chairs, and a table will do.

Someone will need to dust and vacuum, leaves will need to be raked, and the grass cut. In the winter, consider having the heating system shut down and drained to save money. But keep the electricity running because lights will be needed to show the house. Maintaining the home and yard is a very important part of displaying the home at its best.

Pay attention to that musty smell, particularly during the summer months, that settles in from having the windows sealed and locked. Also beware of pests such as ants, bats, mice, squirrels, and other wildlife. Call an Exterminator if necessary to remove them.
