Is Your Residence Worth a Buyer's Time?

by Sheri Barnes 05/15/2019

As a home seller, it is important to do everything possible to generate interest in your residence. Otherwise, it may be tough for you to maximize your house sale earnings.

Ultimately, there are many things you can do to stir up interest in your house, such as:

1. Improve Your Home's Curb Appeal

Buyers may be more likely to schedule a showing to view a home that boasts amazing curb appeal versus other available houses. Fortunately, if you devote time and energy to revamp your house's exterior, you can ensure your home makes a positive first impression on buyers.

To upgrade your home's curb appeal, you should repair any cracked or chipped property siding. You also may want to remove debris from any home exterior walkways and ensure your front lawn is neat and tidy. That way, you can make it easy for buyers to fall in love with your residence as soon as they see it.

2. Remove Clutter

Clutter may make a house appear cramped. Luckily, if you remove clutter from your house, you can show off your residence's full potential to buyers.

If you have assorted personal belongings scattered across your home, you may want to put these items into a storage unit for the time being. This will help you keep your personal belongings safe until your residence sells. At the same time, removing these items from your house could help buyers envision what life may be like if they purchase your home.

3. Perform a Home Inspection

A home inspection is crucial for a seller, as it enables this individual to learn about any underlying property issues. Then, following an inspection, a seller can prioritize home repairs accordingly.

It generally won't take long for a home inspector to review your residence and provide you with his or her findings. Once you have a home inspection report at your disposal, you can determine exactly what you can do to improve your house and help it stand out to potential buyers.

For those who are searching for innovative ways to showcase a home to buyers, you may want to hire a real estate agent, too. This housing market professional can eliminate the guesswork commonly associated with selling a home.

Typically, a real estate agent works with a seller to ensure this individual's house selling dreams can come true. If a seller wants to get the best price for a home, for example, a real estate agent will craft a plan to help this individual achieve his or her desired results. Or, if a seller is unsure about how to promote a residence to buyers, a real estate agent will help this individual host home showings and open house events.

When it comes to selling a house, it usually is a good idea to prepare for the property selling journey. Thanks to the aforementioned tips, you can accentuate your home's features to prospective buyers. And as a result, you could speed up the house selling journey.

Buyer & Seller Agent

PERSONAL

Born and raised in the Sacramento area (Fair Oaks), real estate has always been "in my blood" perhaps, due in part to growing up in a builder family. I graduated from Bella Vista High School, attended California Lutheran College, later graduated from CSUS (Sacramento) with a degree in Communications and a minor in Business Administration. In 1993, I moved to Reno to work for a Fortune 500 company and obtained formal sales training. I've always been involved with some sort of extra-curricular activities including sports, music, dance and theatre. My current hobbies include spending time with my family, gardening, an occasional game of golf and volunteering with various youth programs and organizations. I'm Past Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Mountain View Montessori School. 

PROFESSIONAL

Real Estate is my business, my only business. I have been a full service realtor with over 24 years of experience. My focus is helping my client achieve their real estate goals, whether they are first-time homebuyers, Seniors, buyers/sellers, investors, short sales or relocation. I specialize in new construction communities and residential resale in Washoe County.

I truly love this area and take great pride to know much more, than that which is expected. Every transaction is unique and can often require a creative solution to get results. I'm a customer driven Realtor dedicated to achieving results and providing exceptional service. I feel that this is the reason I receive an abundance of referrals from past clients.

As a buyer’s agent, I listen to my client’s goals so I can find the perfect home and NEGOTIATE the best price and terms that fits their needs. As a seller agent, I know that pricing, location and condition are key factors in selling homes for the highest price possible. With this in mind, I create a customized marketing plan specifically for your home.

Please feel free to call, text, or email me with any questions, anytime.
