Tips for selling your home in Winthrop, MA

So you are thinking of selling your home in Winthrop MA 02152 or Winthrop by the Sea and wondering how to get started. Here are some tips to help you along:

1. Price: This is the most important factor in selling your Winthrop MA home. Any house priced right will sell! Although how much you owe on the house is important to whether you can sell your home it should not effect the price. The buyer's in the Winthrop MA market are extremely educated to pricing. 

2. Curb appeal: While your Realtor is opening your Winthrop MA home door, what are the potential buyer's doing? Checking out their surroundings. Make sure the entry area is in tip top shape. Paint doors, hang or pot seasonal plants, keep neat and CLEAN. When people drive by you want them to entice them to stop!

3. Interior:  The interior of your Winthrop Ma home should sparkle and it should smell great too! Remember there is a lot of competition in the Winthrop MA home market and you want to make a great first impression. A seasoned Realtor should give you a checklist of items to take care of PRIOR to putting your home on the market. This list might include some painting, small repairs and decluttering.

4. Home Inspection: Although not a must, you might consider having a home inspection prior to placing your Winthrop MA home on the market. This prevents any "surprises" after the initial negotiation. Don't have the funds to make pricey repairs to your Winthrop MA home? PRICE accordingly and let buyer's know up front of needed repairs!

5. Price: I know I already said this one but honestly it matters! When you interview Realtors to sell your Winthrop MA home ask for comparable sold homes. The comparables should go back no further than 6 months. When it comes time to appraise your Winthrop MA home this is what the appraiser will be allowed to use. You should also be aware of what is currently on the market to know your Winthrop, MA competition.
