Are you selling your home in Denver, Colorado? You’re in luck, as demand for housing is at an all-time high. Denver’s population has consistently grown thanks to its incredible culture, dining, and proximity to the Colorado outdoors.
Now that it’s a seller’s market, you might think you’ll only need to plant a “For Sale” sign in your yard, then sit back and watch as multiple offers come in. It’s true, to an extent. But if you want to fetch the maximum possible price for your home, you’ll need to do more than that. Regardless of the fierce competition, every home buyer wants to get the best value for their money. Here are our tips for selling your home.
Know When to Sell
As the best weather comes around so does the home buying activity in Denver. The hottest time of the year to sell your home in Denver is during the summer and spring seasons. That is April to June and then again from September to November.
Have Your Home Listed on the MLS
When selling your home, ensure you list your home on your local MLS (Multiple Listing Service). MLS listings increase your exposure and potential showings so that you can sell faster. Most offer a flat-fee service or are available through your real estate agents.
Get Your Home Market Ready
Even if demand is high, a better-looking home will sell faster. For this reason, you need to make your home appealing to a new buyer. That does not necessarily mean expensive makeovers, but simple home staging will make it attractive to buyers.
You can do this by:
- Decluttering: Remove all the clutter, including excessive furniture and personal items from the house.
- Cleaning: No buyer wants a dirty and smelly house. Clean the windows, scrub the floors, dust the blinds, fan, and lights, and clean the kitchen tops, cabinets, bathrooms, and the exterior.
- Lighting up your home using natural or artificial light.
Market Your Property
Potential buyers can only know about your home if you market it. You can create brochures and flyers, market online on Craigslist and online marketplaces such as social media.
When marketing, write a detailed description and if possible, hire a professional real estate photographer. Compelling real estate photographs can reduce the time your house is in the market, increase showings, and potentially increase the sale price. Your real estate agent can help you with this, or take marketing entirely off of your to do’s.
Get the Pricing Right
Pricing your home can be a tricky affair. Price too high and you risk your listing going stale; list too low and you get less money than it’s worth.
Consequently, it’s paramount that you get the pricing right. To know how much your Denver home is worth, get a home valuation. A home lingering in the market for long can deter potential buyers as it gives the impression that something is wrong.
