24 Nov How to Maximize the Outcome of Your Home Sale
I would love to help you navigate which improvements are going to be the most beneficial to your bottom line.
I’ve been getting lots of calls from sellers wanting to enter the market right now. As I discussed last time, ours is a very hot market with historically low inventory. That means that there are plenty of opportunities for sellers to find success, but they still must think about what they need to do in order to get the maximum outcome.
Luckily, I have a long background in helping people to understand what they need to do to their properties in order to get the most money possible. That’s why my website features things like virtual staging, where I can virtually add and subtract furniture to your online photos to show buyers what your home could look like if they refurbished it for themselves.
I can also offer physical staging at various levels. Now, you can’t live in a house you physically stage if the materials are leased or rented; due to COVID, they can’t take them back. But if you have an unoccupied home to sell here in the desert, staging is a wonderful way to coax some extra dollars out of your sale.
Beyond that, you can also start doing some home improvements. One person I work with is putting new stainless steel appliances in her kitchen and refinishing her cabinets. That will likely increase her home’s value by $15,000 to $20,000.
At the very least, I advise you to be ready to move, both mentally and physically. If you have stuff laying around on your countertops or any personal photos hanging on the walls, put them in storage. That way, buyers can see the beauty of the home and imagine how they might feel when they live in it themselves.
If you have any questions about the Concierge program or anything else to do with prepping your home for the market, don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
I would love to help you navigate which improvements are going to be the most beneficial to your bottom line. Compass has a great program called Concierge, which could lend up to $75,000 for home improvements based on the parameters of the program and the equity in your house.
Using the Concierge program, you can tackle projects like your landscaping, and then just pay for the project with the proceeds of your sale.
