Selling Your Home – Tricks Of The Trade To Help You Get Top Dollar By Jason Phillips

Selling your home is easier than you think. It all comes down to several basic principles: marketability, price, and advertising skills. Hiring a competent realtor to sell your home is equally important; you think you can do it all on your own, but you’re wrong. Here are some cool tricks of the trade to help you get the best deal.
Settle on the right price
Before putting your home up for sale you’d better find out how much is it worth first. After you’ve done that, shave about 15% off that price. You’ll instantly be pelted with bids from multiple buyers; and that will happen even if the market is not strong. They’ll start bidding and the initial price you gave will go up. Your house’s value will increase, although let’s not forget that we’re talking about an investment. You are taking a risk, so it is important that you know what you’re doing.

Pay more attention to half empty closets
Many home buyers crave for storage. If you want to make a good impression on potential investors, you are advised to empty your closets. Take your stuff out and make sure all storage spaces left available are neat and clean. This will create a positive impression. Buyers like to snoop around, so it is fundamental that your cabinets and closets look tidy and organized.

Let your home shine
Light up your home if you want to people to like it. Apart from an ideal location, buyers search for good lighting. This is key to purchasing a home. Nobody would want to invest in a property that’s dark and unappealing, so keep that in mind when putting your house up for sale. Take down all the drapes and curtains, make sure the light bulbs are bright, clean all windows and change the lampshades. Welcome as much natural light as possible and you’ll make your house appear welcoming and sellable.
Hire an informed broker
Believe it or not, hiring an informed broker is easier said than done. There are so many inexperienced realtors out there who claim to be the best. Make sure yours knows what he’s doing. Perform a thorough check on his background before employing his services. He should be able to monitor multiple listing services, know property types that hit the market, as well as neighborhood comp. Go for someone who likes to use technology; a tech savvy broker will have all the tools necessary to help you sell your house at a convenient price.

Avoid over-upgrades
It’s always a good idea to go for quick fixes prior to putting your home up for sale. However, stay away from over-upgrades because you won’t any cash back. Significant improvements don’t pay off. As an alternative, you could stick to updates that are worth it. Painting the walls, cleaning the curtains, or even purchasing new ones, can be a convenient and effective way to make your home appear more welcoming.

Minor décor touches can go a very long way when aiming to sell a home. Replace cabinet hardware, door handles, and it might even be a good idea to place welcome mats at the entrance. Clean the grout too, and be sure to fix leaky faucets.

Depersonalize the home
When trying to sell your home it is important to depersonalize it. If you keep things that are too personal, buyers won’t be able to imagine themselves starting a life there. Put all your personal stuff in storage. Memorabilia collections, family photo and other personal keepsakes should go away. To maximize your home’s potential; you could consider hiring the services of a home stager. A stagger is a professional that will help you arrange the furniture in order to maximize the space available.
All eyes on the kitchen
Many home buyers would say that a house’s most important room is the kitchen. There are endless benefits to remodeling a kitchen prior to making the sale. The best part is that you have 85% chances of getting back the sum invested. The most convenient, fastest kitchen updates are painting and replacing old cabinet hardware. Stick to a neutral color in order to allow the buyer to envision a personal style.

Whether you’re selling a property in Turkey to a foreign investor or you’d rather stick to the US marketplace, it is essential that you abide by several basic principles to get top dollar. And believe it or not, sometimes the most effective upgrades are the simplest.
