It’s no secret that Southwest Florida real estate is hot right now. If you are interested in moving, you need to first sell your home. This is why many of the questions The Beattie Real Estate Team often get revolve around which homes are selling the best right now. You want your home to be one of them! First, let’s discuss exactly what “best” means. Does it mean homes selling the quickest? Does it mean homes selling the fastest? Maybe it is the homes bringing in the most profit for the sellers, even. Really, the term “best” means different things to different sellers.
You can assume your home will sell quickly, and for a price you are happy with, if you adhere to the following:
#1 You Put it on the Market at the Right Time. That time is now! We are now well into the home buying season here in Southwest Florida. This is the most popular time of the year to buy a home, so it is considered to be the best time to sell your home by many real estate experts. The more people shopping for a house like yours, the quicker you will get an offer you are happy with. It is simple economics of supply and demand!
#2 You Price it Right. A piece of the puzzle to selling your home efficiently that should not be overlooked is pricing it right. The average home in Florida sells in about two months. However, an overpriced home can sit on the market for much longer, no matter how well you time the listing or how much marketing you do. To get an idea of how much your home is worth, you must speak to a Real Estate Agent. It is a major mistake not to do so. Don’t let a computer algorithm guess what your house or condo is worth; let an experienced Realtor give you a real-market price.
#3 You Renovate or Remodel First. Homes built a few decades ago do not have the modern conveniences and look that today’s savvy home buyers want. That being said, most buyers would rather purchase a home that has already been remodeled rather than undergo the project themselves. That is why a kitchen remodel or bathroom upgrade will have your home selling much faster than putting it on the market as-is.
#4 You Have the Right Representation. Whether it’s staging the professional photographs to go online, handling the open house, or dealing with complicated legal paperwork, you don’t want to try to sell your house on your own. The best way to sell is quickly and have no errors in the process is to hire a Real Estate Professional to work with you. Your home will not sell quickly and for the maximum profit possible without one.
All four of these go a long way toward getting your home sold in a timely manner, with enough profits for you to have a sizeable down payment on your next home. The truth is that is doesn’t matter if it’s a condo in Naples, a single-family home in Cape Coral, or anything else- you need to work with the best to ensure your home sells like the best.
