There is a certain amount of chance that goes into everything – selling property included. The thing is by doing some simple things you can reduce the amount of “chance” involved in increase your odds of a successful outcome. Here are four things you can do to make your property more saleable.
Most buyers will pay “fair market value”. Some buyers will even pay above “fair market value”. Almost no buyer will pay significantly more than “fair market value”. Determine “fair market value” and price your property slightly above it and you will get showings and offers.
Make sure buyers can get in to see it. Hardly any buyers will buy a property they cannot physically see, touch, smell so work with your Listing Agent, Property Manager, Renters and anyone else you need to so that showings can occur.
Fluff – If your property looks and feels used up, tired or worn out the offers you get will reflect this. For a relatively small investment in paint, bedding, couch pillows, staging you can breathe life into your property which, again, will be reflected in the offer you get.
Have your stuff ready. A lot of the time buyers are operating on emotion and they are excited to work out a deal with you so make sure you are ready when they come. Have your rental income numbers ready, your cost to own, a history of repairs (receipts). When buyers have to wait they lose the excitement and deals get much harder.
