Selling Punta Gorda & Port Charlotte Homes for Top Price
We haven’t met a home seller that didn’t care about selling their home for the highest possible price. After all, that just makes sense.
Making a mistake in marketing and the overall selling process can cost home sellers hundreds or thousands of dollars. A Five Star Realty Realtor will help you avoiding these mistakes based upon our experience and local real estate knowledge.
Home Seller Tips
Every home sold deserves personal attention to get the home sold as fast as possible and for the best price. Therefore we can’t provide every tip here, but we wanted to offer suggestions based upon some of the most popular questions we get asked about selling homes.
At times, selling quickly is unavoidable. Trust your professional Five Star Realty Realtor to know the right techniques to sell your home without looking desperate and making yourself a target for low bidders. Our professional Realtors will ensure that you are not settling for the first (often too low) offer through the door.
Best Home in the Neighborhood
Your home is one of your most personal possessions. Don’t be blind to flaws and needed cosmetic improvements. This will cause overvaluing of the home, hurting its chances to be sold. Your professional Five Star Realtor gives you a well informed third eye that will help you price your home at a fair market price.
Limited Home Viewing
Buyers want to view a home on their own time schedule. Unfortunately their time schedule does not always coincide with your time schedule. You never know if the one who got away was your buyer.
Restrain Emotional Decisions
Don’t allow a few hundred dollars to ruin a sale. That money will mean very little to you in the long run. Take a look at the big picture and react rationally. Use sound business judgment!
Make Cosmetic Improvements
First impressions can make all the difference in selling your home. When viewing your home prospective buyers make up their minds within the first twenty minutes.
Spending $1,200 on new carpet might add another $4,000 to the price of your home. Get an objective point of view from your professional Five Star Realty Realtor. They can provide you with a list of items that will maximize the profit of your home sale.
Disclose Property Flaws
Property disclosure laws require sellers to list any flaws required by your state. If you are unaware of flaws or attempt to cover them up, you risk losing the sale and finding yourself in court. Your professional Five Star Realty Realtor can introduce you to qualified inspectors to help ensure unexpected problems and the smooth sale of your home.
For Sale By Owner
Most homeowners who decide to sell their own home do so because they believe they can save the commission paid to the real estate agent. Everything has a price and selling a home carries a high one. The enormous amount of time and effort required to sell a home often surprises the “For Sale By Owner.” Furthermore, many costly mistakes can be avoided with the right guidance.
Refusing to Trust Your Punta Gorda or Port Charlotte Realtor
Would you tell a physician that you’ve decided to run your own tests and come to your own diagnosis? By choosing the right Realtor, you can relax and trust their judgment. Your professional Five Star Realty real estate agent is a valuable team member who will protect your best interests and make your sale as profitable as possible.
Know Your Market
Most homes that do not sell in their first listing period are priced too high. Conversely, most homes that sell quickly are priced too low and cheat the homeowner out of profits. You need to understand the market and evaluate the value of your home based on fact, not gut instinct or conventional wisdom. All Five Star Realty Realtors know the local market, just as you know the market for your business.
