Selling Tips From The Pete Hall Century 21 First Choice Team

Century 21 First Choice has a few steps you can take to ensure a speedy sale. Setting the right price and making an excellent first impression are both essential to attracting buyers, but what else can you do to get the offers rolling in? When listing your home with Century 21 First Choice we will educate you with tips to selling your home as quickly as possible – with getting the best price!

Price it right from the start: Sellers often think they should start the asking price high and then lower it later if the house fails to sell. But that can result in a slower sale – sometimes even at a lower price. The first 30 days activity of your house being on the market is always the best activity you’re going to see. If the price is too high, many buyers will stay away, assuming you’re not serious about selling or you’re unwilling to negotiate.

Enhance Your Homes Curb Appeal: This could mean adding new sod, planting flowers, painting the front door or replacing the mailbox. Prospective buyers form an opinion the moment they spot the home. Curb appeal is everything! Driving into the driveway and walking into that front door sets the expectations.

Update: Fresh paint, new fixtures and updated landscaping are all fairly easy and affordable ways to give your home a makeover. It’s got to look up to the current market conditions and what’s in style.

Staging Your Home: Clean, De-Clutter, and De-Personalize. The fewer things there are in the home, the larger it will look, so clean closets, remove knickknacks and excess furniture. Also take down family photos, religious items and political posters so prospective buyers can envision their family in the house, not yours. If you have odd rooms with no obvious role, then give them one. For example an odd alcove off the kitchen could be staged as an office or a pantry.

Marketing Your Home: Our team will make sure your home is on all possible online portals with our unique marketing plan. Most buyers begin their search online and decide what homes they want to see based on the photos. We make sure they are professional photos, videos, and listed very strategically through all social media channels.

Pricing It Right: Several factors, including market conditions and interest rates, will determine how much you can get for your home. Our team will perform a market analysis to make sure we set your home for success.
