Sell Your Home for More Money

As your local Simi Valley Realtor and Real Estate Team we know this is a fantastic time to be a seller. However, how do you make sure you are getting top dollar? Working with a local Simi Valley Realtor is truly the only way to make sure that you get what your house really deserves. In this competitive market your home is sure to sell, but at what price? We understand that what your home sells for dictates what you are able to do next in life and we want to make sure that your options are open. Below are a few additional things you will want to take into consideration when preparing to sell your home.
Time Your Sale Appropriately: Historically, the end of Spring into the beginning of Summer is the hottest time to sell your home. This is mostly due to families wanting to wait until Summer to uproot their children. During the current market with extremely low inventory there has never been a better time to sell your home than right now – no need to wait until end of Spring or Summer. However, you do want to time the sale of your home based on when it is ready with any repairs or upgrades you may be finishing up.
Make Essential Repairs: In today’s market minimal to no repairs are needed. That being said, you do want to make the necessary repairs that will be called out in an inspection that make the home either dangerous or uninhabitable. An example might be a major plumbing issue that could cause further damage if not repaired. It’s best to just have these taken care of prior to listing so that future buyers do not wonder what else might be wrong with the home.
Consider Curb Appeal: Your homes curb appeal sets the tone for the rest of the house. It is the first thing a buyer sees when they pull up and will set their initial impressions. If you are considering any updates prior to selling, make sure you review your home’s curb appeal.
Set The Right Price: Setting the right price from the start is very important. You do not want to undercut yourself, but you also do not want to blow people away. This is where using a local Simi Valley Realtor can come in handy to help you evaluate your home and the current market to settle on a price that makes sense.
Negotiate The Best Offer: Your home received multiple offers – Congratulations! Now what? You need someone with the skills and knowledge on how to navigate multiple offers and how to negotiate the best deal on your behalf. Money is not always the number one factor when considering all offers.
