With home prices below historic levels and mortgage rates lower still, buyers have been buying homes at rates not seen for a long time. However those same low prices are keeping many potential sellers from listing their homes due to being underwater on their mortgage. This presents a good opportunity for those sellers who are selling a home in metro Atlanta area as there is a good chance there will be multiple offers on the property.
That being said, there are many things a seller should be done to ensure this happy event happens:
- Proper Home Staging: The object is to make buyers fall in love with the home and be willing to outbid other buyers to get it. Therefore your home has to appeal as many potential buyers at possible. Close coordination with your realtor can help you determine what’s hot and what’s not to today’s home buyers.
- Pricing Low: Paradoxically listing your home lower than its worth can lead to a higher final selling price. The low price will attract multiple buyers. Since the initial price is low, they are much more likely to engage in a bidding war since they believe that a ‘little extra’ on the price is still a deal.
- Being Ready: Buyers are attracted by new listings. Your home should see most buyer activity early so you need to have your home ready. Put off listing your home till your property is ready to be viewed and you can afford to be showcase your home as much as possible.
