I've seen countless homes both as a listing agent and a Buyers agent, and have to say that many, if not most, homes are not ready to be on the market.Â If they were, I can assure you they wouldn't be on it for long. Â Â How do you know if yours is ready for a quick sale?
First and foremost Buyers want a move-in ready home. Â This is especially true in the Green Valley, Arizona market where active seniors come to enjoy the endless days of sunshine and activities not to spend their days fixing up a home.Â
Offering a $5,000 allowance because you think Buyers want to choose their own carpet and paint colors may backfire.Â The moment they walk into your house and see dirty, dingy walls and worn, torn carpet their first thought will be, 'what other things have the homeowners let go in the home?'Â Plus if they decide to make an offer,Â chances are high it will be a low one because in their minds they expect there are other areas of deferred maintenance, and their offer will be based on that assumption.Â
Before you put your house on the market, take the time to spruce up your home and make it Buyer ready.Â The time and effort you put into making it move-in ready will be reflected in the offers you'll receive and the amount of time it will take to sell.Â If your house needs carpet and paint, choose beautiful neutral colors and get the work done before that first Buyer walks through your door.Â
After you are done making it move-in ready be sure it also staged to sell with 5 Real Estate Selling Tips to WOW Buyers.Â One of the best staging tips won't cost you a dime...especially here in Green Valley where the sun always shines:
