Sell Your Home Faster and Make More Money

by Glenda Daughety & Team

Are you getting ready to sell your home in Baton Rouge? There’s plenty of things to do to get your home ready to sell.  But many of the things that can help your home sell faster and for more money are relatively simple.  If you follow these few simple tips, then your home selling experience will no doubt go faster and put more money in your pocket.

The Price Is Right

Some people make the mistake of setting the price too high in the beginning.  But that’s not always the best way to get more money.  If you set the initial price below what it’s worth, you could start a bidding war that could end up selling your home for more than what it’s worth.

Empty the Closets

Buyers want storage.  If you empty out about half of your closets and neatly organize them, then the buyer can more easily visualize what they can put in them.

Lighten Up

Baton Rouge home buyers usually don’t like dark homes.  Turn on the lights and open the window before every showing. Clean the windows.  And put in light bulbs with more wattage or lumens.  Paint the walls with lighter more neutral colors. Do anything you can to make your home brighter and more cheery.

Conceal the critters

If you think your cuddly dog or cat will warm a buyer’s heart, think again. Not everyone likes dogs or cats - or lizards, or birds for that matter.  No one really enjoys the smell of kitty litter either. Try to hide the pets and their refuse as much as you can before a showing.

Of course there’s more to consider when selling a home in Baton Rouge. But keeping these few tips in mind will be a great start to helping you get more money and making a faster sell.

4 Reasons to Sell Before Spring

by Glenda Daughety & Team

Spring is on its way to Baton Rouge and now is the time to get your home ready to sell before the busy spring season. Many people feel that spring is the best time to sell as buyer demand increases.  Yet the next few weeks before spring comes has its own advantages.

Why should you sell now?

  1. Strong Demand – According to the National Association of Realtors, the latest numbers show that the number of buyers out looking for homes in December were at their highest level since February 2016.  These buyers are ready to buy now!
  2. Less Competition – Housing inventory just dropped to a 3.6 month supply, well under the needed 6-month supply.  That means there are not enough homes to satisfy the number of buyers in the market.
  3. A Quicker Sale – Since less business is done during the winter, banks will generally be able to process paperwork more quickly.
  4. Better Time to Move Up – If you plan on buying a more expensive home, then now is the time, as prices are expected to increase over the year.

Why wait?  Now is the time to sell your home in Baton Rouge.  Contact us today to see how we can help.
