Why You Need to Take Your Time When Selling Your Home




So many homeowners don't understand how important it is to take their time when preparing their home for the market. It's common for sellers to simply throw their home on the market with a traditional agent without doing the things that need to be done to get the home sold.

There are plenty of resources out there to help you prepare your home for the market. For one, the National Association of Realtors puts out a survey each year to see what buyers are looking for in a home. That would be a great place to start gathering ideas on how to best present your home.

We recently advised the homeowners of a beautiful home in Oak Park, Illinois. The home had been on the market for 6 months and the owners had reduced their asking price by $50,000. They needed help, so we came in and invested a lot of time and resources to help prepare it for the market again. We applied fresh paint and worked to get the home staged so it would show its best. This month, we'll put the home back on the market looking fantastic - all because we took the time to put a little extra work into it.

It's key to get your home appraised up front before putting it on the market. Overpricing your home is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. By putting in the necessary work beforehand and pricing it correctly when it hits the market, you can save yourself a great deal of time and stress.
