Ever wonder how you can  get your home listed and sold fast?  That's what we thought - and we can help!

We have some helpful tips that can help lead you to the successful sale of your home.

Home Selling Tip #1) The  kitchen is the hub of your home and  is the key room that’ll sell your home.⁣

While buyers want the right number of bedrooms and bathrooms to meet their needs, years of experience tell us it’s your KITCHEN that’ll sell your home. ⁣ As you get your home ready for the market, every dollar you spend prepping your kitchen to look its best will give you a high ROI. ⁣ At a minimum, clean, declutter, and clear off those countertops for every showing - but adding a bouquet of fresh flowers is always a nice touch. ⁣⁣If you wanna do a little more, consider updating cabinet hardware, replace the faucet and sink, install a backsplash, or splurge on new light fixtures.⁣

Home Selling Tip #2) Declutter, depersonalize, and stage your home.⁣

Buyers should be able to picture themselves living in YOUR home. Give them the opportunity to do just that by decluttering, depersonalizing, and staging your home:⁣

• Declutter: Picture your home as a vacation rental. If you wouldn’t see it out in a rental, you shouldn’t see it out during a showing.⁣
• Depersonalize: A few modest photos here and there is fine, but pack away the excess, take down oversized monograms, and remove wall letters from the kids’ rooms.⁣
• Stage: If you’re using the dining room as a home office or play room for you kids, reset it as a space to dine. Also, get rid of unnecessary furniture to make your living room feel airy and spacious. Staging doesn't have to be costly or complicated, it simply helps buyers make sense of your home and see its potential.⁣

Home Selling Tip #3)  DON’T go overboard on a ton of upgrades.⁣

In an effort to get top dollar for your home, don't take on major renovations without consulting a realtor first. Some home sellers assume they’ll get every dollar back (and then some), and they go overboard on upgrades only to be disappointed at the closing table.⁣ There are upgrades worth doing prior to selling, but they’re often quick fixes, not major renovations. ⁣ If you’re thinking about selling your Denver home soon, reach out to a realtor who knows your neighborhood and can give you data on the upgrades that matter most to buyers in your area. ⁣

Home Selling Tip #4) Price your home to sell

Find out what your home is worth, then reduce 10-15 % off the price to *hopefully* spark a bidding war.⁣

• Pricing your home just below market value instantly gets buyers’ attention and motivates them to schedule a showing ASAP.⁣
• Once buyers see your home and fall in love with it, they’re more likely to put in an offer if they feel like they’re getting a deal.⁣
• When they realize there are other offers on the table, buyers tend to get competitive and are willing to increase their bid to land the home they want.⁣

With interest rates at historic lows and a lower than normal inventory, if you're looking to sell, you'll 100% be in the driver’s seat. ⁣

Home Selling Tip #5) Work with the right agent.⁣

The easiest way to hire the RIGHT agent? Knowing when they’re the WRONG agent. Here are few warning signs:⁣

• They're not familiar with your neighborhood.⁣
• They're hard to reach by phone, email, or text (this happens too - some agents are non-responsive).
• They pressure you to make decisions before you're ready.⁣

There are some 'awesome' agents out there - so don't settle. Keep looking and asking around until you find an agent you connect with... the sale of your home depends on it!
