With the hot seller’s market, sellers might be tempted to skimp on things, knowing that no matter what they do they’re likely to get more than asking price for their home. A home can be in total disrepair and still get scooped up. But as a Northern Colorado Realtor, I still want to encourage you not to leave money on the table in this hot seller’s market. Keep reading to see how you can get the most for your home!
Change Your Mindset
Unless there is a dire need, your goal should not be to sell your home as quickly as possible. That’s going to happen no matter what here in this hot Northern Colorado housing market! Your goal should be to get the most money you can out of the sale. This is your biggest life investment! When you sell it, you should want to get the most out of it.
Hottest Seller’s Market in History
Take advantage of your home and this moment in history. It’s Economics 101 to buy low and sell high, and here we are. Still, sellers are missing out on making the most on their investment? Why? They’re skipping steps!
I know you’re hearing stories for your family, friends, or neighbors about how their home went live on the market, and it got 15 offers right away. And those stories are real.
But that doesn’t mean you should skip out on what we’d teach all sellers to do in a slower market. Because there are things you can do when you list to get the most for your home when you sell.
Think about it this way—selling your house for quick cash is like selling it at a pawnshop. Your home deserves better than that! Let’s show it off for the gem that it is.
I love this quote from Warren Buffett that says, “Don’t get caught in the madness of the mobs.” Other people are selling their homes the pawnshop way and making bank. But you can make even more—up to tens of thousands of dollars more—if you do it right.
