Sell Your San Francisco Home Quickly with These 5 Tips
The name of the game of selling your house in San Francisco is to do what you can to stand out among other houses that are on the market. You want to do what you can to make your house stick in a potential buyer’s mind so much that they have to submit an offer on your property.
Of course, this isn’t going to be an easy feat – especially if you’re hoping to sell your home quickly… However, it can be done. We have five tips that’ll help give you some guidance along the way.
The first thing you should do is make any of those pesky repairs that you’ve been putting off for who knows how long. Now is the time to also consider whether or not you wish to make renovations as well. By making repairs and renovating, you’re giving potential buyers the reassurance that they’re moving into a house that doesn’t need any work, which is a huge selling point.
2. Curb appeal
Curb appeal is important when you’re selling your house because it’s the very first thing people see when they arrive for a showing. You don’t want potential buyers to see an unkempt yard and obvious signs of neglect. You can boost curb appeal by painting the exterior, pressure washing walkways, invest in upscale landscaping completely with urban-friendly plants.
3. Staging and photos
Your repairs and renovations have been made and curb appeal is on point. Now what?
Now you need to have your home professionally staged so that the home looks put together and cohesive. Don’t get us wrong, paying to fill a house with furniture that isn’t yours sounds ridiculous, but it’s smart marketing. Staging uses neutral, non-descript furniture which allows buyers to envision themselves living there. They aren’t going to get distracted by your emerald green velvet couch or large DIY bedframe.
After staging, hire a professional photographer who specializes in real estate photography. A picture is worth a thousand words and in the real estate world, good photos can be worth tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars!
4. Pricing correctly
Although houses are being sold quickly and above asking, you still need to list your house at a fair price – let the buyers increase the price with higher offers. By listing your house at a fair and reasonable price, you’re going to appeal to a larger pool of buyers than if you overprice. And underpricing… Well, you’re just leaving loads of money on the table!
5. Real estate agent
Selling your house is confusing and there’s a lot that needs to be done. You don’t have to do it alone. When you work with a top-selling real estate agent, they can answer any questions you may have about the process. They can make recommendations about what work needs to be done. They can even negotiate on your behalf to make sure you get top dollar for your home.
We have to wonder, why does anyone even try to do it on their own? It’s one huge headache that you don’t need!
