Sell Your Home for Top Dollar
Sharon offers the following tips to help sellers attain their largest monetary goal. First, make sure your home is in top condition, says Sharon. “I would advise anyone wanting to sell their home for the highest purchase price possible to make sure that things are in top physical condition. This means, at a minimum, all the appliances are working, the paint is fresh and the carpet is clean or new.“
Then, “Take a look around,” she adds, “and de-clutter your surroundings. A potential buyer cannot visualize himself or herself in a sea of your belongings.” There’s no bigger distraction and confusion for a potential buyer. Sharon suggests that anyone planning to sell a home prep it with the adapted mentality of selling a house, not a home. Removing personalization can help others place themselves in the house.
ADVICE FOR BUYERS
“Do your homework. Research the schools that you’d like your children to attend. Take a look at the community you’d like to reside in and the neighborhood that best suits you. It all goes back to the old saying, ‘location, location, location.’ You’re most likely to find a home that you’d love to live in for a number of years by simply researching these few key elements before making a purchase,” she shares. “Reach out to someone you can trust and be sure that person makes your best interest a priority during the sale or purchase.”
