Placing your Pensacola, FL home up for sale can be a hard scary idea. If you place your home for sale and don’t take the proper steps it can be a long and trying process that leaves you scratching your head, thinking “Why will my home not sell?” Our goal is to give you a few ideas to help you with the home selling process.
Have a Comparative Market Analysis Performed
Before the national real estate market started to slide down hill, some home sellers would not accept the first offer that came along. Sellers would wait until they could find a buyer that would pay the original asking price. Now days that is not the case before selling your Pensacola, FL home, have a realtor perform a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). CMA’s allow you, the home owner to have a reasonable idea of what your home will go for. Listing your Pensacola home fairly will allow the home to sell faster, even if that means accepting a lower price than you would have liked.
Be Flexible With a Home Buyer
If you find a willing buyer for your Pensacola, FL home, work with them as much as you can. A home buyer could request you to pay closing costs or to help with some closing expenses. When the home buyer makes these request take them into consideration. A home buyer has to pay a lot of expenses up front, so if they are short a little cash. It would defiantly stink if a buyer backed out because they could not come up with the remaining cash to cover all the expenses.
Make Your Pensacola, FL home Look Presentable.
Your home has a greater chance of selling if you give it a face lift before placing it on the market. Now, we’re not saying gut out the house and do an intense remodel and demolition project. Dedicate one weekend to updating your home before it goes on the market. Apply a fresh coat of paint (light neutral colors are the best), replace burned out light bulbs, clean your house from top to bottom, this also includes outside. A home buyer will not take a second look at a home if the clutter and dirt make the home look small and grungy.
Hire a Pensacola, FL Agent That Is in With the Times.
If your real estate agent does not use modern selling tools to list your Pensacola, FL home, request that they do. In today’s real estate market, most home buyers start their search on the internet. If your Pensacola agent does not list your property online, it will not be seen by the maximum amount of potential buyers. We’re not saying to only list online, but reality is that a lot of people only use newspaper as moving supplies rather than reading it. We are in the 21st century, so most people have graduated into the technology trends.
