  • Tricks of the trade to help you get top dollar when selling your home.

    Selling Secret #10: Pricing it rightFind out what your home is worth, then shave 15 to 20 percent off the price. Youll be stampeded by buyers with multiple bids even in the worst markets and theyll bid up the price over what its worth. It takes real courage and most sellers just dont want to risk it, but its the single best strategy to sell a home in todays market.

    Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closetsStorage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize whats left in there. Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy.

    Selling Secret #8: Light it upMaximize the light in your home. After location, good light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house bright and cheery it will make it more sellable.

    Selling Secret #7: Play the agent fieldA secret sale killer is hiring the wrong broker. Make sure you have a broker who is totally informed. They must constantly monitor the multiple listing service (MLS), know what properties are going on the market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find a broker who embraces technology a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your house sold.

    Selling Secret #6: Conceal the crittersYou might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts of potential buyers, but youd be wrong. Not everybody is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers dont want to walk in your home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the impression that your house is not clean. If youre planning an open house, send the critters to a pet hotel for the day.

    Selling Secret #5: Dont over-upgradeQuick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth makeovers, not so much. You probably wont get your money back if you do a huge improvement project before you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.

    Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your houseOne of the most important things to do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff put it in storage. This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes. Consider hiring a home stager to maximize the full potential of your home. Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.

    Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes firstYoure not actually selling your house, youre selling your kitchen thats how important it is. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is that youll probably get 85% of your money back. It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start envisioning their own style. If you have a little money to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why one? Because when people see one high-end appliance they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates the kitchen.

    Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to showYour house needs to be "show-ready" at all times you never know when your buyer is going to walk through the door. You have to be available whenever they want to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape. Dont leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure there are no dust bunnies in the corners. Its a little inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

    Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the only impressionNo matter how good the interior of your home looks, buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. Its important to make people feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the house. Spruce up your homes exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. You can typically get a 100-percent return on the money you put into your homes curb appeal. Entryways are also important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and keys. But, when your selling, make it welcoming by putting in a small bench, a vase of fresh-cut flowers or even some cookies.

  • Selling your home doesnt just mean hiring a realtor to stick a sign out front. There are a lot of preparations you should make to ensure you get the best offer possible in the shortest time.

    Repair. Just because youve gotten used to the cracks in the walls and the rattles in the radiators doesnt mean a buyer will too. If you have hardwood floors that need refinishing, be sure to get it donehardwood is a huge selling point. Buyers like to snoop around, so be sure to fix any sticky doors or drawers as well. Finally, dont forget to address any issues with the exteriorfences, shingles, sidewalks, etc. After all, without curb appeal, some buyers may never get to see the inside.

    Neutralize. You want buyers to see themselves in your home. If your living room has lime green shag, wood-paneled walls, and all your collectibles and personal photographs, this will be much harder for them to do. Try replacing any bold color choices in your floors and walls with something more neutralbeiges, tans, and whites. Repainting and reflooring will make everything look fresh and new, and help prospective buyers imagine all the possibilities.

    Stage. Once your house is clean and updated, its time to play dress up. Home stagers can add small details and dcor touches that will bring out the possibilities in the various spaces in your home: lamps, mirrors, throw rugs and pillows, flowers, decorative soaps and towels, patio furniture. Home staging can be particularly useful if your home is especially old or if the exterior looks dated. Think of it as a little mascara and rougeif its done right, you notice the beauty, not the makeup.
