Tips on Selling Your Home in Different Housing Market

Thursday Aug 31st, 2017



Selling in a seller’s market is generally quick and easy. In a buyer’s market, with an abundance of properties sitting idle, you may want to do some hard work to help sell your home.

There are a number of things you can do to improve your chances for making a sale. These include:

  • Understand the local market and your competition
  • Price your home right (and conservatively)
  • Make sure your home is ready to be shown at all times (consider using a professional home stager who can help show off the best features of every room in your house)
  • Be accommodating to realtor’s/prospective buyer’s schedules (think of every showing as the one that could get you the sale)
  • Be flexible with your terms (offer an extended closing date or lower your asking price)
  • Be patient (and stay positive)
  • If you get an offer early on, give it serious consideration because a better offer may not come along


Multiple offers

In a seller’s market, with fewer homes available to purchase and more buyers looking, you’re more likely to get several offers on your home.

Here are some things you can do to help increase your likelihood for getting multiple offers:

  • Keep your home clean, clutter-free, presentable and ready to show (hire a professional stager if you can – see above)
  • Consider pricing your home slightly below its fair market value
  • Make sure your home has sufficient market exposure (i.e. list on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), create print materials, such as flyers or postcards with key selling points and a professional quality photo of your home, post on social media, consider newspaper/magazine ads, list on other real estate listing web sites and your agency’s company web site)
  • Be ready to show your house on demand (with no appointment necessary)
