If you’re looking to sell your home on Long Island and and you need to do it quickly, a good tip would be to contact Long Island Cash Home Buyer. We’ve been helping people in difficult real estate situations move homes fast since 1998. We’re not a broker, and we give you cash for the purchase. But if you’re looking to put your home on the market first, you’ll also need some advice. Long Island Cash Home Buyer understands the real estate market so we want to provide you with three important tips if you’re planning on selling your home for cash.
Get the Price Right
When setting a price for your home, the most important thing you can do is research. You need to know the market inside and out. You also need to use the right strategy. Too many sellers make this 1 big mistake. They mistakenly think they should make the asking price too high and then lower the price if the house doesn’t move, according to U.S. News. But Michael Mahon, General Manager of HER Realtors of Columbus, Ohio explains it well, “The first 30 days activity of your house being on the market is always the best activity you’re going to see.” Listing too high of a price could scare potential buyers away. Also understand that buyers will be very savvy about what homes are selling for in your neighborhood. You’ll need to keep an eye on those prices too.
Make Sure Your Home Listing Stands Out
Your listing’s online presence is critical. According to Reader’s Digest, 92 percent of home buyers turn to the internet first when they begin their search. This is why it’s important to have great photos, and you may even want to consider hiring a professional photographer to show your home at its best.
Reader’s Digest also cited a study by the online real estate service Trulia that shows listings with more than six6 photos are twice as likely to be viewed by potential buyers. Trulia also suggested that you post a video of your home and your neighborhood on YouTube to give buyers a better sense of your house’s environment. Being proactive on social media can also help. Share your listing on Facebook. Your friends and your friends’ friends can help network your home.
Optimize Your Home for Showing to Potential Buyers
Curb appeal is important and so is making the interior of your home look its best. Buyers will often do a quick drive-by to your home before even deciding whether or not they’re going to see it, according to Fox News. You should be sure to power wash your siding and walkways and also make sure windows are clean.
Make certain your lawn and all vegetation is trim and that the grass has been seeded. The inside of your home must be pristine as well. Everything must be scrubbed and polished and you must eliminate all of the clutter. That includes closets because potential buyers will snoop. You should arrange furniture, lighting and color in your home to make everything look its best. If there are rooms that don’t have an obvious purpose or have been used for storage, clear them out and give the room a purpose. Don’t forget that outdoor areas such as patios must also be staged.
Pending on the paint colors and condition of the walls, you may need to repaint, especially if you have dark, very taste specific colors. You may need to do a fresh coat of neutral paint (e.g. a light gray or neutral white). You may also need to replace the carpets (especially if they are smelly and even sand and refinish the floors, so that your home looks appealing to today’s buyers.
