More and more homes are selling within days of hitting the market, at close to what the seller has asked for in price. The Seller's Market is in high gear with historically low interest rates and high affordability. If you've been waiting to put your home on the market, then now is the time to take advantage of a red hot market!
Here are a few tips for determined sellers who want to sell their home quickly.
1) Price: Did you know that the first 2 weeks are the most important period of marketing your home? National statistics indicate that the heaviest showing activity occurs during this period, as interest begins to drop after 2 weeks on the market. Hit the market with the best price in order to sell your home quickly! You will attract home buyers who are serious and ready to pounce on the best house that is listed at the best price! What's Your Home Worth?
2) Internet Exposure: Over 90% of all home buyers begin their home search online. In order to sell your home quickly, you must choose a company with exceptional internet exposure.

3) Condition: You will not have a second chance to make a first impression. Home buyers are previewing numerous homes every week, and yours must stand out as the very best home for the best price. Keep your house in ready-to-show condition. A little bit can go a long way, so keep up on curb appeal and freshen up exterior paint and light fixtures. Tidy up after pets and clear up the back yard with your pooper scooper if needed! PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR SALE
4) Your Realtor: Be sure that you hire an experienced Realtor that has the energy and expertise to provide a top notch service.

Selling your home is one of the biggest financial transactions that you will ever make.
