Tips for getting your Arizona home ready to list and sell

A Major part of selling is the presentation of your home.

Many Arizona real estate agents will tell you it’s a seller’s market, but what about all those low value deals you are hearing about? How can you compete?

Presentation, pricing and giving options to the buyers. Plus you need to be especially conscientious of how your home presents itself with so many homes currently on the market in Glendale, Peoria, Surprise, and the west valley you want to be sure your home shines. It’s a good way to get top dollar, an excited buyer and a fast sale.

PRESENTATION: You have one chance to make a first impression with buyers. Let me help you to make a great first impression with a few quick tips on preparing your home for the critical eyes of the buyer. Sometimes, we overlook a few simple things that can make your home appear well taken care of and more desireable in the eyes of the buyer.

Photos showcasing a clean, well maintained home will bring the greatest number of buyers who are looking for a home in your area. Staging is a great way to present your home in it’s best possible light.

PRICING: Today, short sales are ruling the market and REO homes are right behind with low prices. But, many of the short sales have issues that the homeowner cannot fix, same with REO’s. We find most of the REO homes need at a minumum new paint and carpet, plus a thorough cleaning. The typical buyer wants a clean home that is in move-in condition. This is where you can definately shine if you go room-by-room checking for any and all repairs and making sure you have everything clean.

Lastly Options: Giving buyers options. This can be done with Lease Option, Lease Purchase or Seller Financing Options. So many buyers cannot qualify right now but would be perfect to Lease Option allowing you to move to a new home. Either moving up to a larger home, or down-sizing to a smaller home.
