Is it time to sell your house, condo or townhouse in the Greater Phoenix area? Whether you’re moving up to a bigger house or moving on to a new city, if you’re selling your home you’ll want to ensure that your expectations of how the sale will go are in line with the realities dictated by the local real estate market. In today’s post we’ll share some advice on how to manage expectations when selling your real estate in Greater Phoenix.
You’ll Need a Quality Listing with Professional Photos
As of this writing there are more than 34,000 listings on the market in the Greater Phoenix area and that means that buyers have a virtually endless number of options to browse through. Having the best chance at a quick sale means investing in proper real estate marketing to ensure that your home makes a powerful first impression. You’ll want to have a high-quality listing which is filled with every possible detail about your home, your property and the surrounding area. You’ll also want to have professional photos taken of the outside and inside of your home – after your home has been staged, if possible.
You’ll Need to Set a Price That the Market Will Bear
How much are you going to ask for your home? If you have an answer without having had a professional home valuation completed, you run the risk of overpricing or underpricing your listing – a mistake that can have disastrous results. The last thing you’ll need is to have a number of potential buyers skipping over your listing as the price seems out of touch with what other similar homes in the local market are selling for. If you’re in need of a home valuation, contact us and we’ll be happy to prepare one for you so you can understand the true value of your home.
You May Need to Entertain Multiple Buyers
It’s possible that the first person to walk through your door will buy your home, but in reality you’ll likely have to entertain multiple potential buyers before you sign the closing paperwork. Some will end up bailing out due to problems with their financing while others will find a home that better suits their needs.
Above All – You Need to Be Patient
Finally, it’s worth mentioning that you may need a bit of patience. The summer real estate peak has passed, which means that there will be fewer buyers out inspecting listings and placing offers. The good news is that the market is still very active and provided you’ve followed the steps above and are patient you’ll be handing over the keys to a new owner soon enough.
