4 Tips for Homeowners to Sell in Encinitas

If you are a homeowner in the Encinitas area and are looking to sell your home, you want to get the best price possible for your home and sell it fast. Here are four real estate tips for sellers in Encinitas that can help you reach your selling goals.

1. Correct Pricing of Your Home

Having your home correctly priced in Encinitas is crucial to selling your home. Buyers looking for a home have a certain price range, so how much your home is listed for on the market is crucial. What you want to do is have the “Goldilocks” price for your home, not priced too high, and not priced too low. If your home is priced too high, the listing can sit and become stale. Not to mention you may miss potential buyers. If your home is priced too low, of course it will sell fast, but that means you will lose money on your Encinitas home.

2. Location of the Home

Of course, a home in an excellent location sells faster and for more money. If your home is nearby easy accessible transportation, such as highways and away from heavy traffic zones, they can add many lifestyle conveniences and actual increase the value of your home. It makes sense that a home a block away from a noisy train station would have lower resale value compared to a home in the same area that’s near a school and a park.

3. Fix Up Your Home

If you are going to be selling your home, now it the time to fix up all of the odd jobs you have put off. You should fix that squeaky door hinge; take care of that corner of peeling wall paper, change the outlet/light switch panels, and so on. You don’t want to have a picky buyer who passes on your home because they see a spot of paint peeling that made them think that if anything else throughout the home was wrong.

4. Make Your Home Inviting

You want to make your home as welcoming as possible to entice buyers. Fix up the landscaping around your home as much as possible. Unless you are selling a fully furnished home, you want the buyer to envision how nice it would be to live at the home you are selling. Follow the tips your realtor has for staging home interior. We know what sells and we want no less than that for your home in Encinitas as well.
