5 Tips for Selling a Home during a Sellers-Market in Louisville

By Family Realty, LLC

LOUISVILLE – Are you planning on selling your Louisville Home? If so, there’s never been a better time than right now to sell thanks to low mortgage interest rates and high demand, both factors which classify the 2015 Real Estate market as a sellers-market.

In today’s article we will offer you 5 tips you can use to successfully sell your home during a sellers’ market.

Tip 1 – Get Your Louisville Home Ready For Sale

Preparing your home for sale involves cleaning it thoroughly, de-cluttering, painting (if needed) and staging your Louisville Home for sale.

Tip – When staging your home always remember that less is more so don’t hesitate to box up most of your personal items since you will be moving soon anyway.

Tip 2 – Go Live Thursday Night

By having your home listing go live on Thursday night it will be ready for homebuyers to review first thing on Friday morning and it’s going to be a busy weekend since there will be many people who will be searching for homes for sale and contacting your agent to schedule showings.

Step 3 – Don’t Show Your Home to Everyone

Although it’s tempting to show your home to every home buyer you should consider limiting some showings, or having multiple buyers view your home at the same time because, this could increase the competition between buyers when they realize that more than one buyer is showing an interest in the home.

Step 4 – Start with a Slightly Lower Price

Ask your Louisville Real Estate Agent to price your home slightly below your asking price since this will draw the attention of buyers who feel that they are getting a great deal on a home and increase multiple offers because some buyers will feel like they have a little “wiggle room” to go over your asking price.

Step 5 – Choose One Day and Time for Offer Review

After you start receiving offers make sure you tell buyers that you will review their offers on one specific day and time so they will know when they can expect a response from you regarding if their offer was accepted or not.
