Tips To Sell Denver Real Estate Fast!

By: Bruce Swedal

In the current real estate market it is still possible to sell your Denver area home quickly and for top dollar. It can be done if you follow some simple guidelines.

The first aspect that you need to look at is condition of the property you wish to sell. You need to step back and detach yourself from the property to get an impartial picture of what should be done to get your home in prime selling condition. Make no mistake that right now more than ever, condition sells homes.

If you find it difficult to impartially evaluate your home you should give considerable weight to what your Realtor advises. Realtors know the market and they understand what it takes for a home to sell. To catch a prospective buyer your home needs to stand out from the crowd.

The next aspect of you need to closely study is the offering price of your home. For homes to sell now two things must be clearly evident. We already covered condition, in the home must stand out. Another part of making it stand out is pricing it competitively.

For your home to stand out you need to understand the home cannot be over priced. If you over price it you will you will diminish the ability for your home to stand out from among the others being offered.

To try and make this clearer, you need to have the most attractive $200k home in the neighborhood and not the least attractive $225k home in the neighborhood. If you miss on this and over price your home the only thing you will accomplish is to give prospective buyers good reasons to purchase someone else's home.

Homes that are freshly listed typically get the most excitement from potential buyers and you need to be priced right from the first day you offer your home for sale. That is the peak period for selling and if you're overpriced you can miss your best chance for selling winding up with a home that sits on the market unsold. You want to be positioned as the clear choice for a home in your price range.

Other things to consider are offering incentives to the buyer. Things to consider are offering to pay the purchasers closing costs, a credit for decorating or even making the first couple mortgage payments for the purchaser. These are things that could make your home stand out from the crowd because people love incentives.

If you have an equity position in your home, you can consider carrying part of the loan for the purchaser. By offering attractive terms on seller carried financing you may be able to attract investors or prospective purchasers that would not have otherwise considered your home.

Don't forget the important aspect of curb appeal when you're making improvements to sell. The exterior is what is going to make the first impression on a prospective buyer and it needs to be a good one. If the first look does not impress they may not look any further.

Make it a clean, clutter-free environment that projects space. Take down personal and family pictures or anything that will detract from the buyer imagining living in your home. You want them to feel at home which is hard to do if they are staring at a couple dozen pictures of your family living there.
