Here are our top tips for selling a condo or a home in the Phoenix area.
Set Your Desired and Bottom-Line Price
There will be negotiating when it comes to the final sale price, so it’s best to know beforehand how low you’re willing to go. Of course, it is a big help to also know what your desired sale price is. Once you have set these two numbers, it will be easier to set your initial price. Now you are prepared to attract the largest number of possible buyers.
When you create your initial selling price, set it so that it is slightly below competitive prices. Do not opt for overpricing or under-pricing as both can steer away potential buyers.
Make Your Condo or Home Look Its Best
Let’s face it, your home will not sell itself. But a clean, well-maintained environment will ease a potential buyer’s mind and push him or her to buy it. Removing clutter will help the potential buyer see possibilities and see their own life fitting into your home.
Sell During the Desirable Season
It is not uncommon to hear that the best time to sell is spring, but in most cases it depends on the location of your condo or home. For example, if your home is located near a winter travel spot than it may be better to sell during that time of the year since more people will be in the area looking to buy.
Know the Selling Price of Neighboring Areas
Also, know the price of similar condos or homes in other areas of town.
Emphasize Unique Selling Points
When advertising, choose to highlight what makes your home or condo unique. Make sure you list all extras and amenities that are included with the sale.
Advertise using formats and agencies that cater to the types of buyers you want to attract.
Hire a Real Estate Agent
A real estate agent can provide advice throughout the process – from how to best arrange your home/condo, to how to prepare once the sale is final. A real estate agent can be a savior when it comes to selling your home or condo. Not only do real estate agents know the current market, they know how to use that information to your benefit.
A real estate agent can make the difference between getting the desired price and merely getting the bottom line price for you.
