How can i get the most $ for my home?When i'm working with new sellers, there are many questions i'm asked before listing their home,… such as - market conditions, value of their home, marketing, staging, etc.. All important questions.But one of the most important question from sellers is (of course) — How can i get the most $ for my home?For the most part, the value of your home is not JUST the numbers, but ‘increasing your home's appeal'.Sellers can achieve a greater home value by doing some pretty simple task that are not so expensive, but necessary. Like what i call the 3 ‘DEs' - De-cutter, De-personalize, De-fine.As well as CLEAN. Your home has to be, as the old saying goes, ‘Clean as a Whistle' - and i do mean clean everything!Your goal is the allow the buyer to instantly envision thier life unfolding living in your home. Do not let any thing else get in the way from this objective. Sometimes it can add thousands of dollars to the asking price. Once the seller understands the real reason why some people buy homes, they have a very important visual aspect to thier home that other sellers may not. To sell your home at the best price is to realize, "this is about more than real estate, it is about the buyer's life and dreams."Increasing your home's appealRemember the 60-second rule: That's all the time you have to create a winning first impression.February 27 2011 - Midtown00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
