How to Sell your Wexford Home in a Buyer’s Market



The new year has come and gone and if selling your Wexford home is a priority within the first few months of the year, it can be accomplished, but it will take some work.

Presently it is a buyer’s market, so the first thing you will need to do is realize the current market value of your Wexford home may not be what you thought. Many buyers look for a new home during the first few months of the year. This allows them to be in the home before fall when school starts and the holidays are just around the corner. One of the best things a seller can do is to price their Wexford home right the first time to reduce the time that it spends on the market.

The longer the home is on the market, the more price reductions you may have to make. This causes prospective buyers to wonder what is wrong with the home. Everyone wants to make a profit from selling their home, however in today’s market, overpricing a home can mean it will not sell. Checking homes in the neighborhood and getting a good idea of the value of your Wexford home can help you to price it right the first time. Providing good information on the home will help.

Buyers are interested in how energy efficient the home may be, when updates to the home were made and a floor plan can be beneficial. Of course, preparing your Wexford home is crucial. It is essential to clear out the clutter and have the home as bare as possible. Buyers are interested in being able to envision their belongings in the home. Correcting problems and showing your Wexford home in the best possible light will help it to sell faster. Access to the home is another important aspect.

Make sure your Wexford home is accessible at all hours and easy for the real estate agent to show. Keep it clean and ready at a moment’s notice and increase your odds of selling. The first impression is always the one that people remember. Flexibility can work in your favor. If a prospective buyer wants you to include the lawnmower, be prepared to do so. Maybe they would like you to leave some of the furnishings or the glider on the front porch. Today’s buyers are more in control of the deal on a home and they know it, so be prepared for unusual requests.
