5 Reasons Selling Your Home As-Is Can Save You A Lot Of Money.

Selling Your Home For More Money in Omaha, NE

October 12, 2020

I think these days, in the society we live in, most of us can admit that we are guilty of watching just a little bit too much HGTV. Now, there really is not too much harm that comes along with this, except the fact that all of the shows we watch can sometimes give us unrealistic expectations in regards to the buying and selling of a home. Although it is interesting to watch, HGTV may not be the most accurate source for information when it comes to the buying and selling process. When you’ve finally decided to put your home on the market, odds are, your number one question is how to get it sold at the highest price possible.

Whether you’ve put a hefty amount of work and renovations into your home over the years or not quite so much, a good place to start is by checking your house for any places that need repaired or updated, consider hiring an outside professional who can give you accurate and reliable information regarding your home's condition. Once you have a good idea of what needs done, try and complete the tasks you can on your own to save some money. You don’t have to shell out tons of money when doing this, just enough to have all updates needed to appeal to potential buyers.

Some helpful examples of common updates needed before putting your house on the market can include: repairing  damaged spots on the roof or replacing it, adding a fresh coat of paint to interior/exterior walls, replacing outdated fixtures, updated lighting, and new flooring. On the other hand, some material aspects of your home may need updating to appeal to potential buyers. Once your home is in the proper condition to sell, staging your home for potential buyers to view will increase your chances of getting an offer that is up to your standards. Staging your home can be done on your own or with the help from an outside professional. Whichever route you choose, staging your home with updated and vibrant furniture and decorations is a necessity, as it helps potential buyers envision their life inside the home.

Another good tool that is very useful is a comparative market analysis, a CMS provides information regarding similar homes in your location that have recently sold, along with their features. A CMS can be a useful tool when it comes to deciding a reasonable, yet satisfying price to list your home at. These can also help you determine when the optimum time is to list your home that has a greater opportunity for a fast and high price sale. However, sometimes this may not be quite enough and it may be beneficial to bring in a real estate agent who has more experience and knowledge in terms of selling homes, and they also have access to certain sources and opportunities to sell your house and appeal to more buyers.

An agent can also be useful in helping you to decide whether or not you should accept an offer that isn’t quite as much as you were hoping for. It should be expected that you will receive some lower end offers, some sellers may feel as though they need to settle on their price, but you shouldn’t agree on a price you aren’t comfortable with or that will bring you little to no profit.

Overall, if you are ready to put your house on the market, spend as much time needed to research and get information on your home and surrounding properties and get some preparation done before you dive right in. Finding the right real estate agent who is experienced and has a successful background of selling properties for top dollar is another great place to start to maximize your net profits.
