Reprint from Elk River Star News & Anoka County Shopper, "Real Estate News by Stephanie Danielson" - 3/19/16 issue.
Sellers may think buyers will love their home because of their taste in home finishes or quality upgrades. Although this may help – they are not the primary reason. Actually, the three top reasons a buyer chooses one home over another are; price, condition, and location.
Price: Due to the fact that we are experiencing a strong “seller’s market”, sellers tend to list towards the high side. Still, keep in mind to not overprice. One overpricing danger is that buyers may have appraisal issues and difficulty getting their loan approved. Overpricing may also prompt buyers to ramp up their scrutinizing during their home inspection.
Condition: Ask your real estate agent for their listing preparation recommendations or hire a professional home stager. Complete the entire list before your home goes on the market. Buyer's pet peeves may be easy items to remedy, but investing a little money and time, will yield you the highest obtainable price in the least amount of time!
Location: If your location is less than desired, you can't do much about it, but you can make your home more attractive by offering it in immaculate condition with a lower price.
