5 Real Estate Secrets for Sellers, Bluefield, West Virginia

Like any other industry, real estate has some unique tricks of the trade. Whether it’s buying or selling, expert agents know that there are certain best practices for achieving success personally and financially. When it comes to selling residential properties in particular, a few industry secrets can help homeowners attain the most beneficial sale possible. Read on for a few top tips. 

Real Estate Secrets for Sellers

Price It Right

Determine the market value of your home and reduce the sale price by 10%-15%. Offers will come flooding in immediately, driving the price up to, or even beyond, the market value price. Though it may seem risky, this tactic can provide you with a quicker sale at a higher profit margin.

Mow the Lawn

A healthy lawn resonates with buyers. Mow your lawn prior to each showing for that irresistible freshly cut grass aroma. The buyers won’t know what hit them.

Time Your Listing

Listing real estate is all about timing. If at all possible, you should try to avoid listing your home on a weekend or holiday to avoid passing by potential buyers who are vacationing or otherwise preoccupied with another activity.

Stage Your Storage

real estateBuyers can never have enough storage. Remove half of the items contained in your closets and cabinets and organize what remains. Keeping your storage areas neat and tidy will make buyers believe there is plenty of it.


Buyers will have a difficult time imagining themselves living in your home with your personal effects and decorations adorning the walls. Gather all of your family photos, collectibles, and artwork and place them in temporary storage. You may even consider consulting with a professional home stager to maximize your home’s potential.
