Homes for Sale - Tips and Tricks

Selling a home can easily be just as difficult as buying one. As a recent buyer, here are some tips on how to make your house stand out to those that are buying.

1. Have a good agent. Just like when you're buying a good agent is the key. We had one selling agent we tried to work with that was absolutely no help. It was awful, we'd call to ask a question, or want to go see a house and it would take him over a week to get back to us so we could get what we needed. Needless to say this was not helping him sell his homes because I'm sure we're not the first one's who began skipping any listing from him.

2. Go neutral. It may not be your style but if you keep your decorations more neutral more buyers are going to be able to see themselves living in your home. 

3. Make it smell good. There was just something I could never resist about walking into a home that smelled like fresh baked bread or other yummy things. 

4. Answer questions. Make sure when your agent calls you to answer a question about the home that you are available to answer. There were many times we would call a selling agent while looking at a home to ask questions and it was super nice when they could get back to us before we left.
