How Important Is a Perfect Lawn When You’re Selling Your Home?

It’s very important, because curb appeal is crucial, said Suzanne Katz, a real estate saleswoman at Sotheby’s International Realty, in Greenwich, Conn. “A good lawn is an inexpensive way of making the whole exterior — which creates the first impression when someone pulls up to your house — look appealing,” she said. For that reason, Ms. Katz considers a lush green lawn as essential as a freshly painted interior (something real estate agents also frequently recommend). But before undertaking the … [Read more...]

Why Your First Offer is Often Your Best Offer

Another common mistake Sellers make is to disregard the first offer they receive. Often, if they receive an offer quickly, they get over confident and think maybe they could do better if they wait for another buyer. Rarely is that the case.   When you first list your home for sale, New Buyers and Buyers who are Waiting for the Right Fit will come see your home. So it is possible, if priced at Fair Market Value, that you could get a good offer right away.   After time goes on, and … [Read more...]

The Risks Of Pricing Your Home Too High

If you price your home at “Fair Market Value” you will see good activity and a good amount of buyer interest. The higher you go above Fair Market Value to “Test the Market” the less showings you will have.   If you get really aggressive and price below Fair Market Value, you will get an increase in showings, and may end up receiving multiple offers with buyers trying to outbid each other for your home. An asking price that is beyond market range can adversely affect the marketing of a … [Read more...]

Home Staging: When Selling a Home, Less Is More

The Excitement of a New On Market Listing

When Selling Your Home, Time Is Not Your Friend.   When a new home is listed for sale, we market it extensively to other agents and potential buyers. Most of the local working agents and their prospective buyers will see it come on to the market right away. Interest will build over the first week or two, with a peak of interest usually at about 2-3 weeks out.   Then as we always see, the activity of inquiries and showings will start to decrease rapidly. Your home becomes “old” and … [Read more...]

The Closer the Broker, the Quicker the Close

It is well known that location is key to selling real estate. Ocean views, a good school district, access to transportation—each can boost a home’s marketability. Now add to the list proximity to your agent’s office.   A recent study in the Journal of Housing Research from faculty at Longwood University in Farmville, Va., finds that for every mile between a property and its listing agent’s office, average time on the market goes up 0.36% and the overall likelihood of selling goes down … [Read more...]
