Think Like a Home-Buyer
A buyer will be inspecting every aspect of your property, from your dazzling kitchen countertops to cluttered closets and living areas. When you stage your home effectively, you'll give potential buyers the best first impression. Here are our recommendations for staging your home the right way to secure that sale.
Declutter and Reorganize
When homeowners ask us for suggestions to improve their home's value, 90% of the time they have neglected to declutter their homes. We all have "stuff", and while decluttering may be at the bottom of your to-do list, you should do it before you list your home. We have a guide to decluttering and reorganizing to help you before putting your home on the market.
Order a Home Inspection
A home sale can fall through at the last minute if you've been putting off repairs or don't know of any major issues in your home. Ordering a home inspection before you list will help you avoid surprises and let you fix things ahead of time. Follow our tips to learn what to expect during a home inspection.
Need to Make Repairs? Call a Pro (If You Need To)
After your home inspection, you'll likely have a list of repairs you'll need to make. You'll also have to decide whether to hire a professional or make the fixes yourself. Not sure who to call? Contact us at 724-344-4795 and we can recommend trusted contractors and service providers in Pittsburgh to make your repairs a breeze.
Consider Property Differences
The kind of home you have will drastically impact the selling process—selling a house is much different than a condo or high rise. As Pittsburgh real estate agents who specialize in listing condominiums and patio homes, we have a few tips to help you understand the differences. We have unique marketing plans for every kind of property, too.
Use Free Home-Selling Apps
Nowadays, so much in the real estate business happens online. There are plenty of free resources to help you sell your Pittsburgh property, and they're all at your fingertips if you have a smartphone. We've got a full list of the best free apps to find even more home selling articles, real estate market reports, and more.
Avoid the Trap of FSBO
Considering selling your home without the help of an agent? You're making a costly mistake. Selling a home is a complex process that requires a great deal of specialized knowledge. Before you waste your time, money, and energy on an FSBO (for sale by owner) sale, read up on our FSBO guide to see why it's the wrong choice.
Don't Wait for the "Right" Market
While it may be tempting to wait until market conditions are just right, you may just miss the best opportunity to sell your home. Your ideal window to sell depends on your home selling goals, not the local housing market. We think now is the time to list your home—here's our list of reasons why you shouldn't put off selling!
Work with the Right Agent
Ultimately, working with the right real estate agent is the best way to guarantee that your property will sell, and it will give you peace of mind knowing you've got a great team helping you through the process. If you own a condo in Pittsburgh, your listing agent should understand the nuances of selling properties in buildings like yours.
