For many, Hawaii is the ideal place to grow roots. According to Honolulu’s top real estate agents at Lani Properties, the recent influx of homebuyers has created the perfect market for sellers to maximize profit. If you’re a homeowner, the current state of the market could convince you that it’s the right time to sell your house.
Lani Properties has worked with thousands of Oahu homeowners over the last four decades. Through their extensive experience, they’ve come to notice a few things that help sellers get the most out of their home. If you’ve decided to sell, follow these three tips to maximize your profits:
Create Curb Appeal: First impressions are critical when it comes to selling your house above its estimate, and the first thing buyers see is the exterior of your home. Impress your home’s potential owners by trimming trees and bushes, pressure washing the siding, and adding a few potted plants to the end of the driveway.
Perform Quick & Easy Updates: Regardless of how well you’ve taken care of your home, it needs a quick touch up to bring out its best features. Clean walls to get rid of fingerprints and scuffs; dust fans, doors, and baseboards; and, finally, touch up the paint in the interior and exterior of the home.
Stage Your Home: A well-staged home can be enough to convince a buyer to pay the listing price of a home and even compete with other buyers. When you stage the home, buyers aren’t distracted by clutter or unusual décor, and fully see the potential of the home.
With Oahu home prices reaching record highs for both single-family homes and condos, it’s an opportune time to sell your house. The customer-focused realtors at Lani Properties will assist you with the selling process from listing to closing.
