Some quick observations regarding why some homes are selling and others are not. I have been out showing a large number of homes in the past two weeks to a number of different clients and here are a few quick thoughts on this matter:
1.) Get It Priced Right! – No surprise here, but it really stands out when a home is priced too high compared to the competition. The buyers see it quickly and they don’t spend much time looking at the house, they just move on.
2.) Clean your home inside and out! – yes, this seems pretty obvious, but after all of my recent showings it is clear to me that it is not obvious to everyone.
3.) Leave your home for showings! – Do not stay in your home for showings – we’ll figure out that you have freshly painted walls or double ovens, etc. The buyers want to look at your home privately, don’t stay around and make them uncomfortable!
There is more, but I said “quick observations”.
