First, have a "heart to heart" talk with your real estate agent about your concerns. If selling ASAP is your motovation, then aggressive pricing is paramount. Here in New Jersery, a study by the Otteau Valuation Group measured and analyzed more than 15,000 transactions annually over a period of several years. The same pattern emerged in every price range, regardless of whether the properties in question were entry-level or luxury million-dollar homes: Sellers who priced their home below the market from the beginning, often received a higher price and a faster sale. And..there is no doubt in my mind New Jersey home buyers are looking for value.
Next, talk to your agent or go online to learn about home staging. It won't take much to transorm your home to look like a "model home". Ensure that your internet presence includes more than 7 photos (the more the better) that show off the space; are clear, sharp, bight and formatted no less than 640X800. Aside from Trulia, can you also be found on Google, Zillow, Craigslist, Frontdoor, Backpage and Terrabitz? A virtual tour is another must to have when marketing aggressively.
There are plenty of great suggestions posted here besides mine. A final thought is to increase curb appeal by adding potted flowers/plants in your fron yard. I invite you to visit my Blog, Somerset 08873, for more tips.
