Below are my 11 must-haves when selling your house faster/for more money in the current market.
1. Make your house easy to show. Accompanied showings or 24 hours notice are will discourage most of your potential buyers who will view other houses they can see easily when it is convenient for them.
2. Price it right. This may sound counter intuitive, but a house priced fairly will sell for more money than an overpriced home. You may think, “We’ll aim high and negotiate down if we need to,” but this does not happen. In reality buyers don’t even bid on an overpriced house. After changing the price a time or two to what it should have been, your house is “stale” and your largest pool of buyers have already looked at it and ruled it out. More times than not, when you finally do sell, it will be for below what your original “fair price” would have been.
