Selling real estate comes with a lot of advice. Real estate experts, home improvement personalities, and realtors all have different angles they want to pitch regarding Ennice real estate for sale. Not to mention the advice coming from friends and family who have sold the property. It can get overwhelming. Sellers who aren’t sure what advice to follow should keep in mind that while most of the advice can be helpful, they don’t have to use it all.
To help sort through all the advice, sellers should identify a goal: what they want to achieve when they sell their property. They can use this goal to sort through all the advice, looking for what’s helpful and what isn’t. Let’s use getting real estate ‘for sale ready’ as an example. There are hundreds of blogs, books, podcasts, and articles about how to get real estate ready to sell. Which advice should a seller use?
Let’s say two sellers have Ennice real estate for sale. They have a home built in 1975 on an acre, and it’s newly remodeled: updated kitchen and bathrooms, new carpet, fresh interior, and exterior paint. They’ve even remembered to freshen up the front of the house to boost the curb appeal. They’re sure they’re on the right track to being ready to sell, but now there’s a lot of advice coming at them about what to do next.
If they’re following the rule mentioned above, next they’ll figure out their target goal or goals. They decide they want to get an above-average offer on their property or their full asking price at the very least. They decide they’re willing to keep it on the market longer to do that. Using that goal, they can sort through advice to see if it matches their goal – or not.
In this example, the seller’s goal is to maximize purchase offers. The advice they might take, keeping their goal in mind, could include staging the home. People tend to buy with their eyes. Purchase offers are higher for homes that look like a picture in a magazine than they are for homes that don’t. Of course, that’s just an example: our sellers could use any advice that matches their goal. But by keeping a goal in mind, sellers have an easier time deciding what they should do to get their properties ready to sell.
