If you’re like most people who are thinking about listing a home for sale in Naples, you know that the faster it sells, the better – but what can you do to help your Naples REALTOR® sell your home quickly (and at the right price)? Here’s what you need to know.
3 Tricks That Can Help You Sell Your Home FAST
Selling your home quickly means doing a little homework before you put it on the market. Check out these three tricks that can help you go from zero to sold in 30 days:
- Clean, stage and style
- Price your home right
- Work with an expert agent
Here’s a closer look at each.
Home-Selling Trick #1: Clean, Stage and Style
When you’re selling your home, one of the best investments you can make is to hire a team of professionals that includes:
- An expert cleaner (or team of cleaners)
- A home stager
- A real estate expert
Having Your Home Professionally Cleaned
You may have a housekeeper who keeps your home tidy during the week, but it’s a good idea to hire a team of experts for a deep-clean before you put your house on the market. That way, all the important spots will get a little TLC, including baseboards, ceiling fans, behind the refrigerator and beneath the stove… you get the picture. The cleaner your home is, the better – remember, you’re selling the idea that your home is easy to maintain and neat as a pin.
Hiring a Professional Home Stager
Statistically, professionally staged homes sell faster and for more money than their non-staged counterparts do. In addition to hiring a cleaner, a home stager is the perfect addition to your team. A stager will arrange your home to show off its best assets and impress the widest range of potential buyers.
Working With a Luxury Property Expert
Although real estate agents typically undergo similar training for the basics, not all agents specialize in luxury properties. You need to work with a REALTOR® who knows how to market your luxury home to all the right buyers – people who qualify to buy your home and are serious about moving to Naples.
Home-Selling Trick #2: Price Your Home Right
If you want to sell your home quickly, you have to price it right immediately. Although many people believe they should price a home high and wait for prospective buyers to negotiate them down, that’s the wrong answer – doing so will cause your home to sit on the market for too long. That’s because people who can afford to pay the true value of your home will never see it online; it’s going to be listed alongside more expensive homes, and when compared to those homes, yours is going to come up short.
The reasoning is simple: People begin searching for homes by price. If your home is worth $1.5 million but you price it at $1.7 million, it won’t come up in standard online searches in the correct price range. For example, if someone who can afford to purchase a $1.5 million home starts searching, that’s the price range they’ll look in – but your house is listed in the $1.7 price range, along with other homes in that price range that are actually worth that amount.
The best thing you can do is talk to your agent about how much your home is worth. The bottom line is that a home is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, so your agent will compare your home to others that have recently sold in the same area, as well as homes that were on the market but never sold, to determine a fair asking price.
Home-Selling Trick #3: Work With the Right Agent
When you’re selling a luxury property, it’s absolutely essential that you work with a REALTOR who has experience selling homes like yours. You need an agent who knows how to market luxury homes to the right buyers, who understands the market (which can vary from one neighborhood to the next) and who is able to reach prospective buyers who are qualified to purchase your home.
