Although there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the economy due to the pandemic, one thing is for certain: buyer demand is high in the housing market. Not only are interest rates incredibly low, but more people are working from home and looking for stability, making now a great time to buy. This bodes well if you’re thinking about selling your house. With that in mind, the following are four tips for selling a home in 2021:
- Work with a real estate agent – A real estate agent is going to be incredibly useful, especially when trying to sell a house during a pandemic (and even after the worst is over). An agent will have the experience and know-how to help provide you with the guidance you need to make the best decisions.
- Price your home correctly – If you don’t price your home correctly, you could lose money, whether it’s because you asked for too little or because your house is sitting on the market because it’s priced too high. An agent can use local comps to determine how much you should realistically ask for.
- Offer a virtual tour – Many buyers are not going to come to view a house in person unless they are sure they’re interested. As such, stage your home and film virtual tours that buyers can take online. This will give them a much better look at your home than any pictures ever would and can be the difference when it comes to convincing people to schedule in-person appointments.
- Handle in-person viewings carefully – You’ll want to limit person-to-person meetings as much as possible. Consider only allowing in-person tours of your home if they have a mortgage pre-approval. This will allow you to weed out those who can’t make a serious offer.
