Here are three easy ways you can get more money for your home sale.

Are you looking to sell your home? If so, now is still a great time to get top dollar. However, you’ll need to do a few things to truly get the most out of your sale. That’s why I’m sharing three simple things you can do to sell your home for the most money possible:

1. Price your home realistically. The first thing you need to realize is that our market isn’t like it used to be–there’s been a shift. If you price your home too high, you’ll scare away buyers, but if you price your home too low, you’ll leave money on the table. Work with your real estate agent to find the perfect price for your property.

“Buyers need to be able to envision themselves living in your house.”

2. Keep your emotions in check. Today’s homeowners are living in their houses longer, which means their emotional attachments are larger. When you stay in one place for so long, it’s natural for that place to be extra special for you. This is fine as long as you don’t let your emotions cloud your judgment. Try to look at your home like a buyer would–not as a place where you’ve made plenty of memories, but one where you will make them. 

3. Consider staging. No matter how involved you decide to get with your staging, know that it’s a fantastic way to earn more for your home sale. Buyers need to be able to envision themselves living in your house, and staging is the best way to do that. Your staging can be very involved or fairly minimal; either way, some staging is always better than none.
