5 Home Selling Tips to Help Sell Your Home

Real estate in Connecticut and most of the country has experienced a dramatic upswing. Now just might be the ideal time to sell your home for top dollar. Here are a few home selling tips that are sure to help make your house marketable and clear a path for a quick sale.

  1. De-clutter — If you have made the decision to sell, then it’s time to start packing and de-clutter your home. A cluttered residence does not show well. You want your house to appear spacious to any would-be buyers so packing up personal items is an ideal way to make your home more appealing to home shoppers. You may want to consider hiring a professional home stager to make sure your truly house shines.
  2. Time of Year — The time of year you decide to sell might impact how quickly your house sells. Connecticut often experiences extremely cold winters which can slow the house selling market. Buyers often don’t like to acquire family homes during the school season. Spring and summer are the most popular months to sell a single family residence.
  3. Flexibility — Always be flexible to a would-be buyer’s schedule. Often buyers give little or no notice when they want to view your home, so always have the residence in tip-top shape and ready to show.
  4. Know the Market — Familiarize yourself with the local market and use an agent that knows what homes are moving in your area. You want to price your home right so it attracts buyers and brings in offers quickly.  Your agent will present you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) that will give you a good idea what local homes are selling for and how quickly. The CMA provides you with an idea of what your home is realistically worth.
  5. Curb Appeal — Many buyers do a drive by before they schedule an appointment to see a home’s interior. Make sure that the residence’s exterior shines and the landscape looks well-kept.
