There are a number of factors to consider when listing your home, such as the price and current market conditions, and a Dwell Music City agent can help you with all of those things. We strive to make the sale of your home as painless as possible. Our experience in the Nashville market gives us an insight into buying and selling that can only be gained with practice. Having said that, there are a few things you can do on your own that will help the marketability of your home.
Things to Remember When Selling in Nashville
While having a good Realtor® is important, there is a lot you can do on your own to maximize the resale price of your home. Upgrading your home (with in reason) can help your home sell quickly and for a high price. A new coat of paint or an accent wall is a cheap way to liven up a room and make it feel like new.
Make sure to remove all personal items from your home before it goes on the market. While you might love the family photos hanging by the fireplace, you don’t want this property to look like “your” home anymore. When prospective buyers walk in, you want them to immediately feel like this is “their” home. A neutral environment can help to do that.
Before listing your home, it is advisable to check the current market conditions. If there are a lot of similar homes for sale in your area, it might be smart to wait a few months so that there is less competition. On the other hand, if similar homes have been selling quickly, now could be the perfect time to list your property. The Nashville market is busiest during the summer; so selling your home at this time can help maximize the number of potential buyers.
An easy way to minimize the stress of selling your home is by hiring a Dwell Music City Realtor®. Our agents can help you with every aspect of your home sale. Selling your home will include a maze of paperwork that is hard to navigate on your own. Fortunately, your Realtor® will be able to help you with this.
Once you have decided that now is the time to list your home, the next step is setting the price. It is important to price your home fairly, so that it does not spend months sitting on the market, but it is also important to us that you get your money’s worth from the sale. We are experts at walking this fine line, and we would be happy to share our experience and knowledge with you.
Once your home is listed, the next step is marketing the property. To get your home the most possible exposure, we focus on using traditional media as well as the web. By doing this, we can help match your home to the right buyers for the right price. Once you find a buyer, you will have to negotiate the terms of the contract – we can help you with that – and then you can be on your way to your new home or next adventure.
