Want to know some top secrets on how to get top dollar from your selling your home? If the answer is a resounding yes, then please read on.
When you sell your home, you want to sell it for as high of a price as possible, right?
But how, exactly, do you do that?
Top Secrets on How To Get Top Dollar From Selling Your Home
A recent article from realtor.com outlined little-known secrets that can help you fetch top dollar for your home, including:
1. Write a letter about your home. You’ve heard of buyers writing letters to sellers about why they want to buy their home. But an equally effective strategy? Sellers writing letters to potential buyers. A personal letter about your experience living in the home (and why you loved it) can help potential buyers envision themselves living there and connect on an emotional level, which can increase the likelihood they’ll make a competitive offer.
2. Upgrade your mailbox. The mailbox is often the first thing people see when they arrive at your property—and you only get the opportunity to make a good first impression once. If your mailbox has seen better days, swap it out for a more modern, upgraded version.
3. Reglaze your bathroom. Does your bathroom look like it’s straight out of the 70’s thanks to its colored tile? A simple reglaze to a more neutral shade (like white) can make the space instantly feel more modern and can add serious value to your home.
