What makes a home like 93 Hilltop Drive sell quickly, with multiple offers, and over asking? It's usually a combination of things:
- Proper pricing. Buyers shy away from homes they perceive as being overpriced.
- Proper physical presentation. De-clutter and de-personalize; take care of maintenance items; paint; clean thoroughly. Think of getting your house ready for a gala party--make it welcoming; make it shine!
- Attention to paperwork. No one enjoys filling out disclosures, or getting and paying for various inspection reports before a home goes on the market. But thoroughness is appreciated by buyers, and gives them confidence. Make it easy for them to want to buy your house.
- Marketing. Know the pros and cons of your particular property. Your Realtor® should market the property in a variety of ways to reach as many likely buyers as possible. Bring a sense of excitement to the house and help buyers feel what it might be like to live here. Highlight and promote what makes your property special and unique
