We are discussing selling your Denver home. Of course, everyone who sells their home wants to get the most money they can. It’s kind of counterproductive to sell for as little money as possible! There are things you can do to be sure you get the most for your Denver home.
First- a neat, spotless house
The best thing you can do to improve the chances of getting more for your home is to clean and declutter it. A neat, spotless house will probably fetch an additional $5,000- $10,000 above asking price. Using this method we sold our house in 10 days. When you decide to sell, start decluttering right away. Pack up anything you don’t need and store it off site. The less people see, the more spacious your home looks. Once the clutter is out of the way then deep clean. Scrub from ceiling to floor, walls, floors, appliances, woodwork and everything. Your home should shine.
Updates are important
Make updates to your home that will actually pay. Check with your Realtor about what to do, but don’t make changes that cost a lot but give little value. Kitchens and baths sell homes, but don’t make them so high end that you price yourself out of the neighborhood.
Price it right
Don’t demand that extra money you want in the asking price. Price it to the market and you’ll increase your chances of a bidding war that will raise the price. Listen to your Realtor when they tell you the right price for your property.
Make your home have the best curb appeal on the block. First impressions are key. The less a buyer feels they have to do, the more they will be willing to pay for your home. That means inside and out.
Market your home well
The more people you can get to look at your home, the more offers you’ll get. More offers mean higher selling prices. Talk to your Realtor early on and do what he or she suggests. They know the market and will help you get the best price possible.
