Sell Your Southeast Michigan Home With Minimal Stress
- Price it Right
Overpricing your home will discourage buyers from looking at your home. And, believe it or not, greatly under-pricing your home will have the same effect. Buyers may wonder what’s wrong with the property if it is priced well below the market. To set a price for the most expedient sale, sign up for your free market evaluation.
- Hire an Agent
You may be concerned about paying an agent’s commission especially if your home has lost value. Surprisingly, working with an agent may net you a greater profit and will definitely save you a great deal of time. Real estate agents will help you set a fair price and bring qualified buyers to see your home. As a general rule, 90% of agent-assisted sales go to closing as opposed to 40% of unrepresented sales. Your agent will also handle all showings, marketing, open houses, contract negotiations, the escrow process and oversee every detail from listing through closing.
- Make Your Home Buyer Friendly
Keep your home clean and sparkling throughout the listing period. Although this requires time and effort, buyers will be favorably impressed with your home’s condition. Make the beds, clean the counters, empty the trash and scrub the bathrooms every time you leave the house. When your agent calls to schedule an appointment, clear out the family and pets for the duration of the showing.
- Be Objective
Don’t let emotions get in the way of pricing your home realistically. Review the Southeast Michigan Market Update carefully to get a sense of today's prices. If your agent recommends lowering the price, do so. Holding onto unrealistic price expectations may extend your home’s time on the market.
