A Quick Tip For Selling Your Home

Selling home tips are a dime a dozen these days. Seems like everybody and his virtual assistant has a long list of ideas about how anyone can sell a house in this market. Well, I'm here to tell you it isn't all that easy, in fact it takes considerable time and attention to position your home to attract the perfect buyer as quickly as possible.

I am not just writing a list of tips to fill up space, but I am telling you the most important tip of all. In fact, it's number one on my own list of selling home tips, my short list of things that really work in the real world. My top tip is to scroll back the videotape in your mind to the day you bought your home and replay it again to remind yourself why you fell in love with it in the first place. That is really a powerful exercise that prepares you to stage your home and to write your classified ads with the fresh, enthusiastic mindset you had when you were the buyer once upon a time. Writing ads to attract buyers works like magic when you are speaking their language.

There are so many distressed and extremely motivated sellers these days, it only stands to reason that buyers will pick up on their anxiety and either offer less than the asking price or simply walk away. Buyers have some kind of subtle radar that tells them a seller is over-eager to sell, and no matter what the real reason it leaves an impression on the buyer that there might be something wrong with the home itself. That's the last thing you want your prospective buyers to feel about your home for sale. What you want them to feel is that they are darn lucky to have a chance to see and perhaps purchase such a great house that you still love so much!

That's why this whole idea is at the top of my selling home tips, it is the most important thing you can do to sell your home in any market. It's all about your attitude and how it comes across in the way you stage your home for showings with little details that show you care, and how you write classified ads to post online and in the newspaper that include lots of details that attract buyers who might be looking for a home exactly like yours. Your attitude matters and it can work like a magnet to attract your perfect buyer when you sell a home.
