How to Sell Your Home Fast and at Desired Price in Murfreesboro

So you want to sell your home fast and for top dollar?

So you want to sell your home quickly and for top dollar?No matter what the reason behind selling your home in Murfreesboro, it is a fact that buying or selling real estate can be a tricky financial transaction. You are selling your beloved home so you want best price for it. You also want to sell it fast to relocate to another home in another destination. Here are some ways to sell your property fast and at the price you have set for it.

Set the price right

There are many homes for sale in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and yours is not the only one available for buying for the buyers. You are emotionally attached to your home as you have so many memories associated with it. It is natural for you to think it is the best property available in the market. But your love should not dictate your decision when setting its asking price.By setting a price higher than the average price of similar properties sold and bought in your area recently, you only deter serious buyers. It is prudent to set the asking price in consultation with your realtor to attract high number of interested buyers.

Make it presentable for the buyers

Again, there are many homes for sale in Murfreesboro, TN, and you have to make efforts to attract buyers to your property. The best way to do this is to take a look at your house from the eyes of a prospective buyer first. This will tell you want to do to make it look attractive to someone who comes on a showing to find a dream home for his family. You will identify many shortcomings that need minor repairs. You must be ready to spend money on these repairs and renovations to make sure that your home sells quickly.

You need to give exposure to your property so that more and more buyers are able to see it.

You need to indulge in aggressive marketing

It is not enough to set the price right and clean the house and expect that buyers would come on their own to make offers. You need to give exposure to your property so that more and more buyers are able to see it. Your realtor will get the house listed MLS listings and include photos and videos to make buyers interested in your property. You also need to let this information pass on to all your neighbours and also put up a sign in your backyard  so that your house sells quickly.

4 Home Staging Tips to Help Sell Your Home….Fast!

Home Staging 101

By Macie Orrand

Home staging and getting ready for those showings can be an overwhelming feeling. Here are some tips to keep in mind when you think you are ready to put your home on the market!

Home Staging Tip for #1 – Declutter

When you begin to declutter the house it can become a bigger project than you had intended. Take it room by room. DO NOT start out in one room and then decide to stop to start on a different room that you think will take less time. Finish one room before moving on to the others. Trust me you will thank me later. Keep in mind not everything needs to be decluttered. Below are some main areas to check for clutter.

Linen closets/Bedroom closets. Actually any closet, in general, you should check!

Bathroom and kitchen counter tops

Entryways

The tops of the kitchen cabinets and refrigerator

Outdoor areas

Why are these areas so important to declutter you ask? Well, if the buyer sees that you are running out of space they will feel like they will too. Making these spaces look open and still usable is a desirable characteristic that buyers look for at showings! Which leads me to my next point!

A little decluttering goes a long way.

Home Staging Tip for #2 – Enlarge the Rooms

Try to make the rooms look larger. The bigger the room look, the more space the potential buyer sees! Here are some ways to do that!

Placement of furniture

Light, natural paint colors

Less wall décor

Open blinds and curtains to let natural light in

And of course….Decluttering 😉

Home Staging Tip for #3 – Clean & Repair

Clean up, especially stains.

Fix those small repairs.

Fix any cosmetic repairs and stains that will turn off buyers. If you dont want to see it, then chances are neither will someone looking at your home to buy.

Home Staging Tip for #

4.) Go ahead and box up a couple of items. Here is what to pack away and why!

Pack away the clutter.

Pack away any picture frames that are NOT attached to the wall. Having a lot of pictures on display may make it hard for the buyers to envision themselves there.

Pack away anything that is not being used! Out of sight out of mind is my motto!

Here is a tip for packing that I always tell my sellers, “If you can’t see this item in your new home…throw it out or sell it.” Do not pack something that you will not need or want to take with you to your new residence. It makes unpacking easier and faster!

Homes for sale in Murfreesboro are selling fast today but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to prepare your home. Making sure you have the perfect realtor/team to help you do that will ensure you will get the best price for your home!
