At RE/MAX Moves, we’re committed to helping our clients make sure their Greenville home sells. There’s a lot to understand about Greenville real estate, and having the right mindset might just be of your biggest advantages.

Preparing Your Home For Sale

1. Be Flexible

Be open to offers and be prepared to negotiate. Easier said than done, I know. You want to keep in mind that selling your home is a process and can require a lot of patience and strategy on your end. When navigating through the Greenville real estate market, remember your long term goals and make decisions with that mindset.

2. Be Creative

Today in the Greenville real estate market, there are a lot of ways we can market your home and reach potential buyers. Long gone are the days when you could just put a for sale sign in the yard and wait. The market is competitive and diverse, so the way you market your home needs to reflect that. Don’t shy away from using multiple techniques to sell your home. From staging your home to making sure people online know it’s for sale, always look for ways to reach your audience.

3. Be Strategic

When you go to list your home, it’s easy to get caught up in the emotional aspects of everything that’s going on. As difficult as it may be, you need to take a step back and list your home at a fair price that’s in line with the market. For example, the risk of having to carry to two mortgages may prove to be more costly than holding out for extra money. Remember to think strategy not dollar signs.

4. Be Practical

Wanting to make improvements to your home is a good technique when going to sell, however it’s easy to go overboard and spend money you might not recuperate. Remember to make practical improvements to the home you’re selling. Choosing a neutral paint color might be more profitable than refinishing the basement.

5. Be Honest

If you have a question or concern, don’t shy away from talking about it. Remember to keep open channels of communication with your realtor, you can avoid miscommunications and align your goals.

When going to sell your home, you need to ‘keep a few balls in the air’ so to speak. The help of an experienced professional will help take the pressure off you and ensure that your home sells quickly and for a good price. Contact us or call (864) 520-1000 to learn more today!
