Homeowners looking to sell their house this fall may be in luck because many prospective home buyers want to find their dream house before real estate prices and loan rates rise (and before the snow starts falling). It’s important to make your home as appealing as you can to sell your home quickly and get a fair price.
The mortgage loan consultants at Premium Mortgage Corporation in Barre, Vermont, and Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse, New York, offers four tips for selling your house this spring:
- Focus On Curb Appeal: Trim your trees and bushes and use a pressure washer to clean the driveway, house, and patio. Planting fragrant, colorful flowers and cleaning the windows will strengthen your house’s curb appeal as well.
- Eliminate Clutter: Pack away all non-essential items, like extra furniture and clothing, to make your house appear larger. This tip especially works for closets, which can look larger with one sweater hanging up rather than 20 sweaters.
- Set A Reasonable Price: Compare your house to similar houses in the area that have recently sold—this should help you decide on a price range. Even though home prices are rising, avoid setting an asking price that is too high to prevent your house from staying on the market for too long.
- Choose A Knowledgeable Realtor: Most home buyers search for houses online, making it important for your home to be well-represented by a realtor. Select an experienced realtor who takes high-quality photos of your home, writes a compelling description, and markets the property to many different websites.
