Fall is Awesome Time to Sell Your Home

Collier Swecker video blogs about how the fall can be a great time to sell your home. Conventional wisdom has often said that the fall and early winter were bad times to sell because there are no buyers that time a year. This new economy and world we live in has changed all of that and no longer are people only getting new jobs and relocating in the spring or summer. Also there are many potential home buyers that have already sold their home and are just waiting for the perfect home for them to come on the market. (Maybe it’s yours!). If your worried about the fact that people with children aren’t buying in the fall because of school, think again! Many parents have just moved into apartments within their chosen school district and are waiting for the right home to come to market. Fall is a great time for College Football and Selling Your Home!

Putting Response Deadlines on Home Sellers and Home Buyers

Collier Swecker video blogs the pros and cons of putting response deadlines in home purchase offers and counter-offers. While I have never met a home purchaser or home seller that was not somewhat anxious to hear a response from the other side, many buyers and sellers are frequently putting 12 hour to 18 hour deadlines in offers and counter-offers. Home sellers and home buyers should be cautioned to use response deadlines only when absolutely necessary or when they and/or their agent is sure that it is a smart strategic move that will assist them in achieving the negotiated outcome they desire.

Home Sellers You Need to Stage those Awkward Places in Your Home

Collier Swecker video blogs about home sellers need to show potential home buyers how they will be able use those awkward spaces in their home. If you have a room beneath the stairs or a nook / alcove anywhere in your home, you need to fund a unique way to show it off. By setting up a small work station, a home command center with a bulletin board, kids play area, or even built in shelving / seating. Really buyers will want to see that there is some purpose to the space. I would suggest using apps / websites like Houzz and Pinterest to get ideas. When you show the buyer the potential of the space then your awkward spot becomes another selling point.

Home Sellers Stage Every Room or Remove Everything!

Collier Swecker video blogs about how home sellers need to stage and organize every single room in their home that has furniture and “stuff”. My philosophy is that every room is staged fully or everything should be removed from the room. No “half-staged” rooms. Most home buyers cannot see past a sellers clutter. Home Sellers are best to think about how they would view a particular room if they were in the shoes of the prospective homebuyer.  If you have any questions or comments email me at Collier@MegaAgents.com, visit my website at www.MegaAgents.com.

Stage Outdoor Spaces When Selling Your Home

Collier Swecker video blogs about how important it is for home sellers to make sure that they stage the outdoor spaces. One of the most important aspects of listing photographs for home sellers is that those pictures tell a story. The outdoor spaces when properly staged tell a story about much of the lifestyle that the prospective purchaser will have if they buy your home. This is especially important when you have unique features like a swimming pool, waterfall, special gardens, tennis court etc. I have always believed that many home sellers make outdoor staging an after thought and unfortunately by doing so lose thousands of dollars by not getting the absolute best buyers through the door.
