Military personnel is often on the move. Whether it’s due to PCS or something else, you might be looking for ways to market your home so you can sell it reasonably. Making sure your home is attractive on the market to potential buyers can help you make good on the investment you made when buying it.
Selling your house at a loss is certainly something you don’t want to do and one that can impact your future housing opportunities. The best way to ensure your home does well when sold is to market it properly.
How to Market Your Home
The most important thing is to set a competitive price. No one will be interested in buying your house if your asking price is too high compared to similar properties. There are tools online that can help you get an estimate of your house’s worth. You can also get a rough estimate by knowing the asking price for similar properties in your neighborhood. The idea isn’t just to set a price that isn’t too high. It’s just as important to set one that isn’t too low and risk losing your home at a loss.
Professional pictures can make a massive difference. One study found that houses with professional pictures sell faster than those without. Professional photographers might cost you, but they can drastically improve your odds of selling your house. They’ll take care of things such as lighting and weather. They’ll recommend taking pictures during certain times of the day and even during specific months of the year. Great pictures can be the difference between selling your home quickly at a competitive price and not selling it at all.
Using the right words in your listing is what makes potential buyers interested after the pictures draw them in. Information regarding the number of bedrooms and baths will be included elsewhere and doesn’t need to be added to the listing. Listings are usually a paragraph long and should contain information about proximity to nearby schools, malls, and attractions. Your listing should tell people why it would be great to buy what you’re selling.
Try to highlight the outdoor features of your house. Decks, pools, firepits, and outdoor kitchens are all things people are becoming increasingly interested in. Following the pandemic, many people became more interested in staying at home and enjoying the relaxing environment. You can find more buyers if your house has outdoor features that can add to their lives without going out. Energy-efficient features should also be highlighted. As energy prices go up, people will look to save money by being energy efficient.
