For Sale: 4 Tips for Getting Your Home off the Market Quickly By Megan Belnap
Do you have a home to sell? Are you ready to get the selling process over with quickly? There is no better time than now!
Here are four top tips for getting your house ready to list for a ton of interest and potential bids:
Give Your Yard Attention
Cleaning up your yard and making it look welcoming will do two things for sellers: First, a beautiful yard that is free of cracks and weeds will attract more potential buyers; second, curb appeal can add as much as 5 percent value to your home.
Paint Inside and Out
Buyers want to see a fresh, clean space when they visit your home. By painting inside and out, you have the chance to apply a neutral tone throughout the home. New wall coverings mean no fingerprints or smudges—and with new paint, there are no nail holes to hide.
Price Your Home Intelligently
The right sales price for your home is often the best way to sell your home quickly. If priced too high, you may scare buyers away before they even come to an open house, but, if priced too low, you may lose out on money.
Depersonalize the Space
Buyers want to look at a home as if they are moving in. When you leave pet toys or your children's clothes laying around, people see "you" in the home. By removing everything that's personal, you can make way to stage the home.
Two Safety Tips for Your Electrical System
The safety of our home's electric system is often something we take for granted. From hitting a switch to illuminate your space, to plugging in and charging your devices, we rarely consider the currents coursing through our walls. However, to keep your family safe and your home secure, it's important to consider your electrical system, and whether or not your system is safe.
Get to know your electrical system better – First and foremost, spend some time becoming more familiar with the home's electric system. Learn what runs on each circuit, and get to know the limits for each. Overloads can be dangerous, and electrical fires from overloads can do a lot of damage in a little amount of time.
Don't overdo it with extension cords – Extension cords are great for reaching a little further with items like electric blowers or work lights, but it's important to remember to use them safely. Don't daisy chain multiple cords together, and don't use them for items that will pull more power than the extension cords are designed to handle. They can overheat, short and even be the cause of a house fire.
After retiring from the Marine Corps, my wife and I wanted to move back to my home town but we lived in OH and didn’t have much time house hunt. Jared and the REMAX team did an excellent job helping us find the perfect home for my family!July 2017 Jason and his wife bought a home in Aitkin
Jared is truly the best!! He works to get you exactly what you want. Very smart and responds fast. Not only that but he is a very heartfelt guy. I Couldn't have asked for a better person to sell me my first home. We are so happy!December 2017 - Rylee Wagner
Mary and I just want to thank you again for all of the help finding the right cabin. I know we were very picky trying to find the right one.
Your knowledge of the area really helped us lock in about 3-4 lakes. Also, thanks for the gift of knifes, we plan on leaving them at the cabin and will think of you each time we use them.
Like Mary said we would like to take you and your wife out next spring.
Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
