Increase the chance of selling your house faster following a few good guidelines.

5 Tips For Seller's In A Buyers Market

1.  Plan your work and work your plan.

Be prepared to sell your home and price it accordingly.  Not the price the neighbor got for theirs last year, not the price you wish you get, but the price that you should get now. 

2.  Check Out The Competition.

Get out there and see what your competition looks like, how the competition is priced and the amenities that are offered with the competing homes.  Approach the home search from a buyer's perspective. 

3.  Make It Picture Perfect.

Make the home 100% perfect.  Clean every square inch, repair anything that is broken, replace anything that is worn or showing age.

4.  Sweeten The Deal.

Offer incentives to buyers. Besides a low price, great incentives for buyers include paying discount points to lower the mortgage rate, paying closing costs or providing flexibility about the move-in date.

5.  Be Realistic.

Buyers have access to the internet and can find their own information about comparable homes currenty available and comparable closed sale prices.  Home valuation websites and county tax collectors sites are easy to use and provide accurate comparable sales information.  Don't expect to charm buyers into paying more for a home than it's worth.

NO comments? I'm surprised. I wish #2 was to stage the home :) 

I like your blogs, informative and always a touch of humor.

See, even brilliance gets passed over on occassion.  I also write a lot of localism stuff that goes without any comments but the one I put so it doesn't have a zero.

My 200th Post - Can Anybody Hear This?

THis is why I write alot of Localism posts.  Localism posts can actually get featured on Localism, too. Many of these community profiles receive alot of points and recognition on *L* instead of *AR*.
