Selling – The Right Richland Sale for You

Selling a home can be an emotional and complicated time but the quickest way to alleviate some of that stress is with a full-price offer on favorable terms. As real estate agents with over 20 combined years of experience in the Richland real estate market, we understand what it takes to get your home the best possible selling price in the best possible time frame. Of course, complications can occur, but with our experience and professionalism at work, we can usually help you avoid as many complications as possible.

The second half of the selling equation is you, the seller. While we might have experience working with Richland real estate and the agents for potential buyers, every transaction is different, and every home has its own unique selling points. To maximize those selling points, there are a few tips that you can use to not only help your home shine but also stick in the minds of buyers as they walk through for showings. A positive first impression is good, but a strong lasting impression can be just as important.

Home Field Advantage

Of all the people that are going to be involved in the selling process of your property, no one knows it better than you. While there are marketing techniques that are effective for all types of properties, such as a good use of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), there are also unique aspects of every home that, when accentuated, will communicate the individual style and value of a home. You know that better than anyone else and whether it’s a special accent you installed or a way you’ve used a particular space, communicating those extra advantages of a home makes a real impression on buyers.

Your Home Becomes Theirs

As you well know when you purchased the property in the first place, a buyer will spend time not only inspecting the various aspects of your house but will more importantly take time to envision themselves in your home. They want to be able to see their furniture, their friends, and family in the home and be happy. Enabling that is an important part of getting a home ready for sale and something as simple as removing clutter from a particular area of the house can let a buyer focus more on envisioning a future in the home and less on the mess of toys on the floor.

Bringing Home Curb Appeal

It is certainly not groundbreaking information to know that curb appeal can make a difference in how a buyer sees your home, but sometimes sellers get wrapped up in making sure their carpets are vacuumed and their windows are clean that they forget simple things like cleaning up the driveway or mowing the lawn periodically. First impressions are important, and you want to give your buyer the sense that he or she is coming home to a beautiful, inviting property. Taking care of your lawn goes a long way towards doing just that.
