The market has shifted since the end of 2022. Mortgage rates have risen and buyer demand has eased and more homes have come on the market. As a seller you will need to be aware that the market is not the same as it was this time last year or even four months ago.
#1 Price Your Home Right
he housing market shifted at the end of 2022 when mortgage rates rose, and buyer demand eased, and more homes have come on the market. As a seller, you will need to be aware that the market is not the same as it was this time last year or even 4 months ago. Price your home too high, and you may deter buyers and have less buyers seeing the home. Price your home too low, and you will leave money on the table. Hiring the right agent to price your home correctly is the first step in making sure you get your home sold for market price.
#2 Keep Your Emotions In Check
Homeowners are staying in their homes longer than they have in the past. Historically it was 5-7 years and now the number has grown to 7-10 years. The side effect of this is people who spend more time in a home grow more emotionally attached to the home. It may be that your children have grown up in the home, or you’ve made a lot of good memories. For some buyers, this makes it hard to negotiate and approach the home sale as a business transaction and separate the emotional value of the home from the market value.
#3 Stage Your Home Properly
While you may love the decorating decisions you’ve made over the years to your home, not every buyer will. It’s important to make your home as appealing to the masses as possible and that means neutralizing the décor and colors. According to National Association of Realtors, Buyers want to envision themselves in the space so it truly feels like it could be their own. They need to see themselves inside with their furniture and keepsakes – not your pictures and decorations. A real estate professional can help you with tips to get your house ready to sell.
