Thinking of selling your home? Your best bet is to carefully devise a plan for a successful home sale.
While everyone’s idea of success is different, most sellers would agree that they’d prefer to sell their home quickly for maximum profit.
Here are tips from some of the nation’s top real estate agents to help you increase your home value and sell fast once it’s listed on the market.
1. Create Curb Appeal
It’s a buzzword in the real estate industry, but for a good reason — curb appeal wins a potential buyer every time. According to a 2019 Agent Insights Report, 94 percent of real estate agents say that “great curb appeal adds value to a seller’s bottom line.”
The best part of getting your home to stand out — in a good way — is that it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money.
2. Buyers Love Landscaping
If you’re planning on selling your home in 2019, you should know that 75 percent of agents “believe that well-landscaped homes sell for more money.”
How much more? 50 percent of agents say that landscaped homes sell for 1-5 percent more than houses without landscaping.
