What to do if Your Home is Not Selling

If you have been trying to sell your home and are concerned that it is not selling, Victor Amadi offers 9 tips to consider. Look around your home at these 9 areas and see where some improvement can help you sell quicker and for top dollar. 

We often tell clients; the way you live in a home is different from the way you sell it. Potential buyers are much more likely to return to a home that impresses them at first glance, while homes that appear disorderly or poorly maintained rarely sustain a buyer's interest. 

Here are nine tips to help you sell your home:

1. Landscape Your Home

If your landscaping is messy, overgrown, or looks cluttered in any way, you need to fix it.  Buyers make positive or negative conclusions about your home within the first five minutes.  Don’t lose the battle before you even begin.

 

 

2. Clean Carpets and Rugs

One of the most visible areas of your home is your flooring.  If your carpet is worn or dirty, get it replaced or cleaned.  If you have vinyl flooring with the corners coming up, get it glued down.  If they are wrinkled, get them stretched.

 

3. Do the "Smell Test"

Because homeowners become desensitized to the odors in their homes, they rarely realize how obvious odors can be to visitors. Ask a friend that does does not live there to walk through your home and give it the "smell test". If they notice odors, fix them right away!

 

4. Clear out the Clutter

Excess clutter is a big buyer turn-off.  You have to move anyway, so you may have to pack away items that make your home feel good to you, but turn off buyers.  This includes nick-knacks, furniture, pictures, wall hangings, plants, etc.

 

 

5.  Paint with Neutral Tones

If you have wild or dark colors in your rooms, consider painting with neutral tones. They will help your rooms look cleaner and larger.

 

6. Get Professional Pictures

Better quality pictures are a better presentation for websites and can get your house more showings. You may need to have a professional take them. 

 

7. Video- Virtual Tour

Home listings with video receive more views. Consider having a virtual tour of your home.

 

8. Marketing Exposure

Limited exposure leads to to limited results. Maximum results lead to maximum exposure which leads to selling your house!

 

9. Reducing the Price

Notice this is the last tip on the list. We look at other ways to elevate the house and its marketing before we look at the price. You can lower your price until someone buys it, but that is not always the best approach.

6 Problems That Can Turn Buyers Off

Are you considering selling your home? Victor Amadi at PRODUCER Realty has great advice for preparing your home to show and sell for top dollar!

We often tell clients; the way you live in a home is different from the way you sell it. Potential buyers are much more likely to return to a home that impresses them at first glance, while homes that appear disorderly or poorly maintained rarely sustain a buyer's interest. 

Here are six problems your home may have that can instantly turn buyers off:

1. Landscaping

If your landscaping is messy, overgrown, or looks cluttered in any way, you need to fix it.  Buyers make positive or negative conclusions about your home within the first five minutes.  Don’t lose the battle before you even begin.

 

2. Home Odors

Because homeowners become desensitized to the odors in their homes, they rarely realize how obvious odors can be to visitors.  This is particularly true of pet owners and smokers.  You should rid you home of odors before you start letting buyers through it.

 

3. Carpet and Flooring

One of the most visible areas of your home is your flooring.  If your carpet is worn or dirty, get it replaced or cleaned.  If you have vinyl flooring with the corners coming up, get it glued down.  If they are wrinkled, get them stretched.

 

 

Special note:  Replacing flooring in smaller areas, such as kitchens, with high quality flooring could bring in a better price.

4. Paint and Walls

Paint is one of the least expensive ways to “spruce-up” your home.  Consider painting outside trims, shutters,  and interior walls and doors.  

 

 

 

5. Clutter 

Excess clutter is a big buyer turn-off.  You have to move anyway, so you may have to pack away items that make your home feel good to you, but turn off buyers.  This includes nick-knacks, furniture, pictures, wall hangings, plants, etc.

 

6. Signs of Pests 

If you have any sign of mice, rats, roaches, spiders, or bees, you should immediately contact a local pest control company and have them treat the property. There’s no better way to show your home is filthy than by infestations.  You should Remove all spider webs with a broom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There’s no doubt about it: first impressions count with buyers. 

Watch the video for 6 Problems that can turn buyers off and the solutions for them!

5 Tips to Consider When Buying a Home

It's almost March and a GREAT time to start home shopping. New homes are coming onto the market everyday and less people tend to look until Spring. A smart home buyer would be looking now! 

Of course you want to get the best price on your home purchase, but what steps can you take towards negotiating just that? For starters, you want to know when to negotiate and when to cease; Too much negotiating can run seller's off, creating a huge issue when trying to buy your perfect home. I have compiled a list of items to keep in mind when buying a home.

1. Find a Real Estate Agent. 

It's a give-in that buying a home will more than likely be the largest purchase you will ever make. Therefore, it is critical that you have a trusted individual negotiating on your behalf. Trying to accomplish buying a home at the best possible price on your own is very risky, and it can cause more problems and money loss than you could ever imagine. Real Estate Professionals know the ropes, as they have swung on them time and time again. It really just comes down to you being willing to trust someone with the expertise in an area you may not be too knowledgeable of. 

2. Get Pre-Approved

Knowing how much you are qualified to borrow can help you narrow down your search to what you can afford. Some seller's do not allow buyer's to set up viewings unless they are already pre-approved. While most seller's do allow you to view the home, offers are a lot less compelling if they do not include a pre-approval letter. It is best to be prepared so that you can make your first offer your best offer. 

3. Be Prepared to Move Fast. 

This one goes along with getting pre-approved. The more prepared you are, the more likely you are to purchase the home you want for the price you desire. If you find a home you want, MOVE! Put an offer down immediately. The longer you hesitate, the higher the chances of someone else putting in an offer the seller's cannot refuse.

4. Request Repairs Carefully. 

Sending that three page repair report to the seller of the home you would like to purchase may not be the best idea you've ever had. Some seller's just flat out do not have the money to put into it. Keep in mind that no home will be perfect, and you will more than likely need to put in some work on your end. 

Nitpicking every small detail can send the seller running in the other direction. Consider a repair report with only the mandatory repairs to receive the loan you are trying to obtain, then asking for a credit at closing or an overall lower selling price. 

 

5. Ask the Seller to Pay Closing Costs

It never hurts to ask, especially when an average of over $3,500 is at stake. Plus, it could be considered a trivial expense that the seller will likely sign off on to seal the deal. Give it a shot!
