Home Seller Tips – 5 Must Dos

5 Home Seller Tips to Sell Quickly & Maximize Profits


Home seller tips that you need to make sure you (or your Agent) think about and do to maximize the amount of money that you will make when you sell your home. The first and most important thing is your home’s exposure. You want to make sure that your home is exposed to the masses. Betsy Taylor Homes does this through digital marketing on multiple social media platforms to the masses.  This is done through a Detailed Digital Marketing Plan that’s taken a lot of time, money, and effort to really specialize in and learn.

Good Negotiator

The second home seller tip is to hire a REALTOR® that is a strong negotiator.  Think about this, if the average agent in Maryland only sells about six homes a year, are they really able to negotiate on your behalf? Look for an agent that has credentials for negotiation.

Pricing it Right, Condition and Location

The final three home seller tips that you need to think about are price, condition, and location. Everyone always thinks that their home is worth way more than it is, even agents selling their own homes!  But you need to consider the location and condition to come up with a realistic price. You have to make sure that you aren’t just looking at Zillow or RedFin for the value of your home. Both Zillow and RedFin use an algorithm to value your home.  This algorithm doesn’t take into account whether or not you have upgrades, if the condition is good or poor, or if you back up to a major highway. All of this information is important when pricing a home for sale- it can cause a higher value or a lower value. Because of this, adjustments to the price will be made, just like an appraiser, and the best person to do this is a local agent that not only knows the area you live in but the condition and location of your home.

Hire an Expert

Exposure and marketing are super important when you’re selling. You need to make sure that you hire someone that’s has been credentialed in negotiations and also has experience. Every single person in the world knows at least one realtor that’s a friend or a family member. There are so many of us out there, but we are not all created equal.  Don’t put the biggest investment in the hands of someone who has not invested in additional education and training.  Go to an expert. Go to somebody who will expose your home to the masses, who’s an expert at their game, who takes their job seriously, who does it full time, and has your best interest at heart.
