IF you are like millions of other homeowners right now trying to sell your home there are some tips to keep in mind when selling. This is not the market to list a home and hopes it sells. If you are serious about selling you will have to make the offer especially good for buyers.
1. Price it right.
Now, of course, this is important but do you know how to price in this market? Many times agents will go on what has sold but in this particular market, it helps to know what your competition is and go slightly below that. If you just can't go any lower on the home, make sure you are offering something that no other home has. How do you know what they have? Have your agent pull comps for the area or simply stop by the open houses on the weekend and see what you are up against.
2. Pre-Qualify your home.
If you expect buyers to come into your Ruidoso real estate property pre-approved, then you should pre-approve your home as well. Have a home inspection already done and ready to show buyers as they tour your home. Make sure all the necessary issues are taken care of and that you have pride of ownership of your home. Keep receipts for all repairs to show buyers.
3. Start packing now.
Clean the home and pack away most of your personal belongings. In some cases, you may need to pack more than half of your items away to make ample room for buyers to freely tour your home. You may even consider hiring a personal home stager to set up your home in the best possible fashion.
4. Offer a home warranty.
Typically these can run less than $400 and provide peace of mind to buyers about the appliances and repairs in the near future. This will also let buyers know you are serious about the structural integrity of your home.
