8 Value Enhancing Secrets That Work to Sell Every Luxury Home in Atlanta
Selling a luxury home in Atlanta can be a daunting process without the right Real Estate Agent and the right tools to enhance the presence of your luxury home. As a luxury home Seller, it is extremely important for you to consider the 8 value enhancing secrets that work to sell every luxury home in Atlanta.
1. Pre-Listing Appraisal
The list price of your luxury home is one of the main components that are considered when buyers are searching for a new home. Get a pre-listing appraisal to ensure your home is priced right at the most important stage of the listing process (the first two weeks). This will help determine the value of your house in today’s market (the most a buyer is willing to pay).
2. Pre-Listing Inspection
Getting a pre-listing inspection upfront will keep you from being blindsided about major repairs needed in the home when a buyer completes their inspection. In many cases, buyers may request you lower the price of the home or complete the repairs prior to closing. Identifying repairs upfront will allow you to determine what your out-of-pocket costs will be to complete repairs for the sale or how much you should reduce the list price. This is one of the best ways to be informed prior to negotiating an offer.
3. Professional Cleaning Service
Hiring a professional cleaning service to clean your home before listing will help your home showcase much better during the marketing period. You don’t want potential buyers being distracted by dirt and messiness.
4. Professional Lawn Service
It is important to have professional lawn service throughout your listing period. The exterior of the home is the first thing potential buyers see when viewing your property. There have been times when buyers dismissed viewing a home after driving by due to being turned off by the exterior appearance. Ensure your lawn is mowed and edged. Make certain your trees and shrubs are trimmed. Also, have your lawn and flowerbeds free of weeds. It is also a nice touch to place fresh mulch down.
5. Professional Staging
Getting your home staged is a great way to showcase your home like a model. Think about how you feel when walking into a new home model. Can you picture yourself living there? That’s the way you want potential buyers to feel when they walk into your home. Staging will help them visualize how to live in the space and offer creative decorating ideas. In addition, they can see how to best place furniture in a room.
6. Professional Photography
Most home searches today start on the Internet. You have less than 11 seconds to make an impression online with potential buyers. Hiring a professional photographer will maximize the appearance of your photos.
7. Termite Letter/Bond
Offering a termite letter and/or transferable bond will help potential buyers feel good about purchasing your home. This will relieve the stress of worrying about termites and other wood destroying insects.
8. Home Warranty
Offering a home warranty with your home is a great way to capture more offers. This will alleviate the stress for potential buyers having to worry about what can go wrong in the first year of owning a property.
All in all, the 8 value enhancing secrets above will help sell any luxury home in Atlanta. Although, you may spend a little more money upfront to prepare your home for sale, you will more than likely make more money on the sale due to the value you are offering potential buyers. Showcasing your home with these 8 secrets can help generate more showings and more offers. I’m sure you’d love the opportunity to pick the best deal from a multiple offer situation.
