Do you currently have your home listed for sale with your Realtor, but it seems to be taking much longer than anticipated to sell your home?
Be sure to check out these tips that have helped the selling process move along more smoothly and helped sell many homes in Central Florida.
1. Evaluate the price of your home. You and your Realtor should have discussed how much you want to list your home for. The price is the number one factor for a home not selling. If you are listing it too high, this could be a true testament as to why it is taking longer to sell your home. Make sure to price your home accurately and trust your Realtor’s expertise in this especially since any buyer besides a cash buyer will need to do an appraisal and the appraiser will pull the same comps in a CMA that your Realtor completes to come up with the value. No lender will loan above the appraised amount in this market.
2. Marketing is another factor of why your home may not be selling. Does your Realtor have not only have experience in selling homes, but are they up to date on today’s technology and are internet marketing savvy. Orlando Hub Real Estate has expertise in Internet Marketing where we own and operate over 20 websites to help market your home. Also, we use Real Estate websites to also promote the listing. Also, we do a custom online marketing campaign that allows us to get your home sold faster. Not many other real estate companies do this. Be sure to inquire what your Realtor can do for you in regards to marketing your home and the resources they tap into.
3. After evaluating the price and marketing strategies, you may come to find that the price of your home and marketing are up to par and you are doing everything possible. Perhaps, you will want to consider staging your vacant home. By staging furniture, décor in your vacant home, you provide potential buyers with an opportunity to see what the house looks like lived in and not a vacant house. They will be able to envision their furniture in the home. Home stagers are very helpful in this process and can have an added benefit to getting your home sold.
4. A little paint goes a long way. If you think your house could use a fresh coat of paint, it probably does and you should consider doing this. By adding a fresh coat of paint to your walls, this will help potential buyers see the house in a cleaner way. Also, if you notice the carpets are stained, you may want to change them out if you can afford to do such an upgrade. This will help show potential buyers that they will have less to paint or upgrade with the home.
