The start of a new year is the perfect time to look back at everything that has happened over the twelve months prior. It is also the best time to make resolutions that do not apply just to your personal life, but business as well. If you have made a leap of faith and ventured into a property investment business this 2014, then congratulations; houses will continue to sell like pancakes in 2015.
Before welcoming the next year, though, pause for a moment and think about how you will strategize your route and prepare business for the competition. Estate agents from House Tree encourage home sellers to consider adopting these practical New Year’s resolutions:
Commit to Exceeding Buyers’ Expectations
You have probably experienced talking to a potential buyer for a long time, only to find out that they are not going to make an offer. A house is a huge investment; it is only natural for buyers to have many hesitations when buying a new house. Your goal is to eliminate all those hesitations that will stand in the way of their nod of approval. If you really want to sell, make an effort to exceed their expectations.
Stage Your Home
Remember, the buyer’s first impression is the only impression they will have about the house, so make sure they do have any reason not to buy a home the moment they first lay their eyes on it. Perhaps your home already needs a good retouching of paint or upgrading of the landscape. Consider re-staging your house. Hire a stager for a polished, stunning look that buyers have come to expect when scouting for potential properties. Ask your stager for renovations that will get your home in tiptop, selling shape.
Invite Estate Agents to Get Comparative Marketing Analysis
It always helps to have more than one estate agent look at your house. With this, you can have different ideas on how much your house is worth and what kind of marketing strategy will be more effective. This will also establish a broader perspective on potential buyers who will want to make a quick offer.
As 2014 comes to a close, review your business efforts and re-arrange your priorities. Get ready to sell this 2015!
