Would you like to know how to turn the secret behind these stats into a great deal on a home sale? How can you use this information as a home seller to turn these stats into cold hard cash? You start by tailoring your marketing strategy to fit the demands of the buyers. So, how do you do that? Your first step should be to talk to a local Realtor and pick their brain about their strategy to help you get your house sold with a favorable outcome to you.

Consider the needs of the buying group that is looking in your area. You can do this by checking out the most recently sold homes in your neighborhood and find out what it is about those homes that caused the buyer to buy. Once you discover what they are looking for you can then transform your home to be most desirable to them. For example, small renovations can add a lot to the bottom dollar when it’s done right, and they don’t need to be expensive.

Paint colors that have proven to sell a home faster could be a very inexpensive and easy way to spruce up your home. Curb appeal is another good option since you only get one chance to make a first impression. Another great improvement that shouldn’t break your bank is new kitchen appliances, counter tops, or new bathroom vanity and mirror. And lastly, don’t forget the lighting! Great lighting can set the mood for a beautiful looking home that makes the buyer feel at home when they walk in the door.

Keep in mind that doing inexpensive renovations doesn’t mean do it cheaply. Buyers are smart and will not pay top dollar if they believe they will have to redo the renovation. Save yourself the heartache. Do it right from the start or don’t do it at all!
