10 tips to make your Home more Salable
1. Dump the Junk
Less clutter in your home makes it look bigger, roomier and
cleaner. Go through your home and make piles of items, such as
"garbage", "charity" and "maybe". Throw away anything useless,
give away anything that may still have use and seriously
consider the maybes, such as how long its been since you've used
the item and whether its broke or damaged.
2. Price it Right
home that is priced well above the local market or above similar
homes will not sell quickly, or possibly at all. Work with your
agent to price your home correctly the first time.
3. Find the Best
Having a good real estate agent or broker can make all the
difference in the world when the market becomes more
competitive. An agent who knows how to market and advertise your
property, and who has good experience and connections, will be
an invaluable asset. Interview real estate agents and ask for
4. Require a marketing plan
When you decide upon an agent, make sure that he or she develops
a customized marketing plan that fits you and your property. The
standard approach may not work for every property.
5. Change the deal
If your home isn't selling within a decent time period, consider
changing the deal instead of lowering the price. For example,
instead of lowering your asking price from $500,000 to $480,000,
keep the $500,000 but offer a 2 percent "seller contribution" to
help pay for closing costs. This saves you money and is very
appealing to many buyers.
6. Get a HELOC
Having a home equity line of credit in place can help you, even
if you're not planning to sell your home for several years. This
way, you'll have funds available if you want to buy another home
while your current home is on the market. Be aware, however,
that if you home doesn't sell in a reasonable time period, you
may be saddled with multiple mortgage payments.
7. Fix it.
Buyers will ask for a home inspection. You'll save time by
getting a preliminary home inspection yourself and making
repairs before putting the house on the market. However, if a
repair is requested from a potential buyer, it may be cheaper
than finding a new buyer.
8. Ask for feedback
Find out what potential buyers thought after a showing or open
house. Take negative comments as constructive criticism, which
you can use to make the next showing or open house better.
9. Beware of the take back
Watch out for buyers who want to take back financing. When loans
are available everywhere for little or nothing down, don't go
into the banking business when there is less risk to you with an
10. Ignore inconvenience
If a potential buyer wants to see the house at 7 am on Saturday
morning, so be it. This is a time where you have to be flexible.
It is better to show flexibility and have the house seen than to
turn away potential buyers.
