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.
Kim was very helpful in every aspect of helping us sell our lake place. She is very friendly and was willing to listen to our ideas. Kim would always be on time when showing us properties. I would recommend her to any future clients.Brian - bought property in Jan 2019
We have been searching for a lake home for 2 years. It was not until I hooked up with this company that I found our dream lake property. Jared knew what we wanted after we spoke. It was the second house we looked at with him and we were sold. With him and his outstanding office manger Rhonda you cannot go wrong using this company.
Ronnie Law - Bought property in 2019
As personal representative of my late mother's estate, I had to sell 3 large parcels of vacant land (including lake shore property) in Aitkin County MN. The transactions also involved a 'lot line adjustment' with the county planning and zoning office. Because I live in Illinois, we had to work together remotely for the entire process. Jared and his team (especially Rhonda) were exceptional in knowing and working with the county officials. They were also great in coordination with the surveyors. They know the market well, and after providing a market analysis, we selected a price point that generated significant interest in the first week on the market, attracting multiple offers which allowed us to negotiate a very competitive deal for the estate. I would recommend Jared and his team to anyone who is interested in buying or selling property in the greater Aitkin areaGrant Benjamin - Sold property in 2018
We are very satisfied with the timely fashion in which Kim helped us to sell our home. Kim is a great listener who is concerned about all of our needs, wants, and desires. She worked hard to be personal with us in a professional manner. She helped us to understand and navigate throughout the entire process. She was attentive and quick to respond to our questions searching for the best answers. She also knows how to handle multiple offers to get you the best deal. We highly recommend her services!Thorsoncrew - bought a home is May 2019
