First Thing’s First: Are You Asking Too Much?
In a happy world, our home values increase. Many people buy their homes as an investment and bank on making some profit when they go to sell their homes. This does happen frequently, but it’s not a given. A well maintained home may get its asking price and it may have to subtract thousands before it gets any bites. Moreover, if your home has suffered during your occupancy, which is often common, it may not be worth as much as you paid for it. For example, if you experienced flooding, foundation problems, or were unable to make any upgrades to the home, you may find that your house isn’t worth as much as you are asking. A real estate agent who deals daily with properties can help you assess the going value of your property. If making a sale is important to you, you may have to lower your asking price in accordance with your house’s assessment.
Sometimes even a fair price isn’t enough to make a home sale, particularly when the home is in poor condition. Selling a home “as is” may be some sellers’ only option, but if you are in a position to make some investment in your house’s condition, you can build that cost into your asking price and hopefully attract more buyers. There are many extraordinary homes for sale in Tulsa that also have fair price tags. In essence, you are competing with other houses for buyers. To improve your chances of making a lucrative real estate sale, you should at least consider making minor cosmetic improvements and any major ones that are likely holding up a sale. Decrepit windows, a leaking roof, a compromised foundation—these are serious issues that can turn buyers away. If your home’s major systems are solid, it could be that aspects of your home are too dated. Consider renovating the kitchen or bathroom; typically these types of renovations will add value to your home and will attract more potential buyers.
Are You Using Digital Technology to Market Your House?
If you aren’t using the internet to market your house, you are likely missing out on a huge pool of potential buyers. Tulsa home marketing online is the key to making a great sale. More people are searching online for Tulsa home sales and properties than ever before. If you are only relying on word of mouth, print ads, or a sign in your front yard, you are not marketing your house in accordance with 21st century real estate marketing standards. It’s important for you to make sure that your home is visible online and is listed on various sites that market houses. When marking your home for digital channels, you need to have excellent photos of your house and excellent exposure to the Internet to even be competitive in the market.
