Listing Your Home And Surviving The Showings

You can bet in this market the home that you just listed will be a hot topic, meaning you will have a ton of strangers coming and going on a regular basis until your home sells.  Yikes!  That can be overwhelming, especially if you have pets, or children that are on a schedule.  

So how do survive this influx of strangers walking through your home?

Have A Showing Schedule Set:  It’s very important to try and not limit the days and times that potential buyers are able to walk through your home, but you can set a schedule with your agent to ensure you don’t have showings scheduled during the times you need to be home.  For example:  Have your agent set a showing schedule between the hours of 9am-6pm if you work, and won’t be home anyway.  Or, set a showing schedule of 9am-3pm and 5pm-7pm if you have a little one napping in the middle of the afternoon.  

Agents Can Make Showing Appointments With You: If you prefer ...

What to Expect When Selling Your Home: Part 1

Selling your home is a big decision!  There are several steps in the process that you may not be aware of, especially if you are selling a home for the first time.  


Full disclosure:  I wrote this blog with the intent of posting the entire thing all at once.  I quickly realized with all of this information it might be better absorbed into three different blog posts.  Enjoy! :)


PART 1:


INTERVIEW SEVERAL AGENTS (Surprise!!):  Make sure you are choosing an agent who will do their research regarding not only your home, but your neighborhood as well.  You also want to choose an agent who will be transparent with you about what you should expect. This can be tricky because you want an agent who will listen to you, but you also need someone who is going to tell you the truth.  The truth might not always be easy to hear, but it’s better to cut through all the crap and find someone who cares, and who knows their stuff.

What to Expect When Selling Your Home: Part 2

PART 2
 
Here is the second part to my recent blog post titled “What to Expect When Selling Your Home.   This article focuses on how important it is to communicate with not only your agent, but with other professionals who will be involved in the sale of your home.
 
Enjoy!  :)



EXPECT YOUR AGENT TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU OFTEN:  Your agent should be communicating with you at least every other day and giving you updates and feedback on showings.  Your agent should also be giving you a weekly snapshot of how many times your home has been viewed and/or shown in the previous week.  This marketing update will help you feel like your agent cares about selling your home, and helps you see how things are progressing. If small changes need to be made, you and your agent should be making those decisions together based on your marketing update.  I also think it is important to keep in mind that you will be communicating with your lender and t ...

10 Tips to Wow Potential Homebuyers

Last week, I wrote a blog on 10 things that turn off homebuyers. Today, I’m going to be talking about the opposite! What are some things that you can do to impress potential buyers?


 
1.       Curb Appeal
Make sure that your front yard is well maintained, and add a pop of color with a bright front door and/or some colorful flowers.


 
2.       Natural Light

Let The Light In!  Make sure that any heavy curtains are removed, and replace them with light, airy ones. Buyers want lots of natural light!



3.       Organization

Whether your house has a lot of storage or a little, keeping organized helps every home look like it’s a storage castle.  Get rid of any clutter (rent a storage unit if you have to!) and use labeled containers in closets, pantries and cabinets.


 
4.       Laundry Room

One of the num ...

What is a Seller's Market?

Spokane’s real estate market has been in recovery since 2011 according to Amy Edelen of the Spokesman Review.  If you are new to real estate you might be hearing a lot about our “seller’s market.” You may also be wondering “What does that mean?” 


In the broad scheme of things an area is in a seller’s market when there are more buyers looking to purchase than there are homes for sale.  Buyers are competing for homes because there is very little to choose from. The term “seller’s market” can also mean different things depending on if you are a home buyer, or a home seller.   


If you are a buyer:  You are in major competition with other buyers.  This is especially true if the home is priced well usually in the $150,000-$250,000 range), and is in a desirable neighborhood.  You are looking at very few homes for sale and have very little to choose from. You are most likely compe ...
