As I mentioned in a previous blog post, listing your home before the start of the spring season does have its advantages! However, that’s assuming your Chetek home is ready to sell. Every aspect from price to staging to the marketing of the listing plays an important role in the success of your home sale and Wisconsin homeowners would be wise to take them into account.
Below are three key steps you’ll need to follow in order to have your home primed for a timely sale in the current Chetek real estate market:
Price the home well
It is best to consult with your local Six Lakes Realty agent to discuss the best listing price for your Chetek home as both overpricing and underpricing will impact the trajectory of the sale. We even offer a free home valuation to give you an idea of what your home might be worth in today’s market! Remember that while you may have emotional ties to the property, it is always best to be realistic and price according to current home values.
Stage the home properly
When selling your Chetek WI home, you will want to present the property in its best possible light. We’ve shared curb appeal tips in the past, but staging is one practice that can really help a buyer imagine themselves living in the space. Simple projects like giving the home a deep cleaning, clearing walkways, removing all personal items and eliminating clutter can work wonders in the eyes of a Northwestern Wisconsin buyer.
If you want to take it a step further, giving each room a fresh coat of paint can help give the home a brighter, more updated feel.
Market to the right buyer
Millennials are expected to make a big impact on the real estate market in 2016, but your Six Lakes Realty agent will advise you on your home’s target market. Highlighting certain features of the home like an open floor plan, updated kitchen and baths and even outdoor space (we are in the City of Lakes!) is essential for attracting the right buyers to the property.
If you’re planning to sell your home this year, let Six Lakes Realty be your guide! We will work with you to ensure a timely, successful sale so you can move on to your next dream home in the Chetek area!
We look forward to hearing from you!
