A Few Tips As We Kick Off Selling Season

Selling season begins after the Super Bowl, which means IT IS TIME to get the ball rolling! When you list your home for sale, there are many decisions you will make; choose a realtor that can help streamline and simplify the selling process.  Check out the following tips to get started:

1. Make sure your realtor has a strong online presence and is seen as an authority because buyers use online resources to narrow down their search.

2. Familiarity with your area/neighborhood is key. Selling a waterfront property is different than selling a traditional property, so find a realtor that has experience in both.

3. Staging is one of the best ways to give your home a facelift. This can be simple measures to show your home in a better light including decluttering and deep cleaning. Fresh flowers or plants will also brighten your space. 

4. Know what improvements will make a difference in your return on investment. Don’t spend money on updating features that won’t benefit the sale price. Many people spend thousands of dollars on updates that don’t translate in the listing price.

Your realtor should be your compass, trust in their expertise. And if you don’t feel they are guiding you in the right direction it might be time to find a realtor that aligns with your needs.
