Some tips for selling your home from Norma
Toering & Team:
1. Prepare your home for sale.
The presentation of your property can greatly
enhance the final sales price you obtain. Spruce
up your curb appeal by keeping the property well
landscaped and tidy. If you know of safety related
repairs to you property you should complete those
prior to putting it on the market. Painting with
neutral appealing colors can be a great return on
investment. Consider staging the property if
2. Price properly.
The best way to determine the value of your home
is to know exactly what similar properties in your
neighborhood are selling for within the last three
months. My free
local market reports can keep your finger on
the pulse of prices. You can also use online
pricing tools such as Zillow to
estimate a home's value. Zillow, though helpful,
is not an ideal tool for property evaluation in
many Southern California cities due to large
differences in view, remodels and condidtion of
properties even on the same street.
The worst mistake a seller can make is to
overprice their property. This will result in
"chasing the market down," where the property
stays priced too high to draw any offers and even
price reductions are too late as values decline.
Correct pricing from the starting gate will likely
net you more than meeting fair market pricing six
months from now.

3. Choose the correct agent.

4. Make your property easy to view.
You want as many buyers as possible to view your
home to maximize your chances of generating an
offer. Having a yard sign will create neighborhood
buzz. Installing a lockbox will encourage all
agents to show your home. Also being willing to
have open houses on the weekend will bring many
buyers to your property that may not have seen it
otherwise. Lookers often become buyers.
