It is said that there is someone special out there for everyone and the same holds true for even the most challenged house. So, don’t despair if you are interested in selling a house that isn’t in pristine condition. While the buying pool may be smaller, it isn’t empty, and your house is someone’s dream home. It is just a matter of finding them and following a few tips that can help.
The first tip is being realistic about your asking price. It is common to overlook the facts when there are emotions involved. Unfortunately, you can’t put a price on memories, so those birthday parties, family holiday gatherings, and teaching your children to ride a bike in the driveway aren’t going to make your home worth more to someone else. The best way to know what your home is worth is to work with a real estate agent experienced with completing a comparative market analysis.
Your real estate agent is also going to be your best resource to learn what you can do to improve your property. This doesn’t have to be huge renovations that cost you more than you get back. Sometimes it is just a matter of decluttering, putting on a fresh coat of paint, or bringing in a professional cleaning service to make your home sparkle.
Speaking of a real estate agent, this is an area where you should choose wisely. Oddly enough, it often costs the same for a rookie agent as it does for one who is in the top 10% of the industry. Take the time to seek out the best of the best, and you’ll stand a far better chance of selling a house that has a few challenges to overcome.
