6 Tips for Selling Your Home For Top Dollar



Despite the market conditions, homes are still selling and
some



homeowners have been able to
successfully beat the odds and



sell for top dollar. To model the
success of these savvy



homeowners, let's take a look at
six tips to sell your home for top



dollar:



1. Price your home aggressively



Setting the right price for your home is the single most
important



decision you will make when you
decide to sell. Go too high and



you risk turning off every buyer in
the marketplace, go too low and



you leave money on the table. One
simple but powerful technique



for pricing your home aggressively
is to spend the day looking at



6 Tips to Sell Your Home for Top Dollar



your competitors' homes. By doing
so you will be seeing the world through the buyers' eyes. Be tough and honest



with yourself. Compared to the
competition what would be a price that would position your home as the best
value



proposition for buyers in your
marketplace



2. Hire an aggressive listing agent



Not all listing agents are created equal. To find an
aggressive full time agent, take the time to research the market,



talk to friends, neighbors, and
colleagues about who they recommend, and interview multiple agents before
making



a hiring decision. Don't hire an
agent just because they tell you what you want to hear. Make sure your agent
gives



you a true picture about values in
your marketplace, even if you don't want to hear it. In addition, be sure to
come to



an agreement about a specific,
documented marketing plan before signing a long term listing agreement.



3. Stage the home & use curb appeal



Buyers won't pull the trigger unless they become emotionally
invested in your home. To help build a stronger first



impression, start from the outside
first by working hard to improve your home's curb appeal. Remove the weeds,



plant fresh flowers and spruce up
your exterior paint if needed. Next move inside and stage each space by
creating



a focal point and a story for each
room. A set dining table, a book by the bed, or a game in the kids room are all



simple examples of staging.



5. Offer incentives & pre-paids



A buyer who has narrowed their search down to two or three
top choices may need a little push to motivate them to



take action. To encourage buyers,
many sellers offer incentives like buying the interest rate down on the
purchaser's



loan, paying for closing costs,
inspections, or repairs, or providing allowances or credits for home upgrades
after



closing. In addition, many sellers
prepay for services like internet services for a year,
taxes, homeowners association



dues, or even golf club
memberships.



6. Get pre-inspections



Many sellers do pre-inspections of the home to provide
buyers with a clear whole home inspection or pest and dry



rot inspection. (A word of caution:
anything discovered during a pre-inspection will likely need to be disclosed



whether you fix the issue or not).
It's often easier and cheaper to do needed repairs in advance than trying to



negotiate them later with an
emotional buyer.
