Sell Your Los Angeles Home in 2012
The final months of 2012 are upon us and if you are thinking about selling your Los Angeles home before the year’s end, we have a few things you should know. We always sell homes at this time of year … and right through the holidays! Buyers who are looking for a home during this time of year are serious buyers, and can be the key to your home sale at this time of year.
First, use an experienced, trusted real estate agent. We suggest using an agent who is familiar with the real estate market in your area, who is full time in the real estate business, and who has a solid marketing plan for your property.
Marketing is not just done with a “for sale” sign placed in your front yard, nor solely through classified advertising and open houses anymore. In today’s real estate environment, you will want a Los Angeles real estate agent who is well-versed in social media, listing syndication, and internet marketing. Combine the internet savvy real estate agent with a full-time agent, and you are sure to have a winning combination.
Second, be realistic about the price of your property – and price it to sell! Your Los Angeles real estate agent should be able to advise you on the correct listing price for your property. Remember, that a realistic and sometimes aggressive listing price can be a key marketing tool to attract home buyers.
Third, believe in home staging and curb appeal. We believe it can make a difference in the sale of your home! We are available to consult with you on the best home staging and yard details to maximize the beauty of your home both on the outside and on the inside. It is much easier to sell a home quickly if it looks well-maintained and clean. Do not scrimp on gardening or pool maintenance at this time. Your Los Angeles home for sale needs to be in tip-top shape! If you would like to view a slideshow of how staging can make a difference, please view here: Staging Your Home
Fourth, make your home easy for buyers to see. Yes – open houses are one way a buyer may see your home. But, buyers may also be shown your home by another real estate agent. There are many ways for a real estate agent to show your home to a potential buyer. We can consult with you to determine what the best strategy is to get your home sold.
If you would like a free, confidential consultation with us, we would be happy to meet with you to share our thoughts to help you get your home sold before the holidays. Please call us at (818) 952-0077 so that we can help you sell your property in 2012!
