The Scoop for Listing and Selling Your Home

By Laura Freeman | On

Even though the real estate market in Frisco and elsewhere throughout Texas continues to thrive, it can’t hurt to have a few tips for listing your property under your belt. As we’ve talked about, we are seeing homes fly off the market faster than ever here in Texas, which is excellent news for those who want to sell their home quickly. That being said, there are numerous things you can do to speed up the sale of your home even more – without sacrificing profit. With the number of corporate relocations taking place throughout Plano, Frisco, and other nearby cities, both buyers and sellers are set up for a successful transaction where everyone gets what they want. However, even though the market is extremely hot, it is a good idea to make sure you have all your ducks in a row and are staging the home to be sold.

When it comes to listing a property in our market, there are a few things savvy buyers are on the lookout for. People are undoubtedly trying to take advantage of the ‘buyer’s market’, so in order to ensure you sell your home – and at the price you want – take the below tips into consideration:

  • Cater to those searching for a home online. These days, more people than ever begin their search for the home of their dreams online. In fact, research indicates that 92% of homebuyers start their house hunt online. With this in mind, it is a good idea to consider this fact when first thinking about listing your home. When it comes to real estate, this means pictures. Pictures are the thing that will help you attract buyers and get your home noticed quickly. Those in the industry recommend having at least six good quality pictures, as studies show that homes with less than six pictures aren’t viewed as often.
  • Make an engaging, interesting video. Similar to the above point, YouTube videos have become one of the most successful tactics when it comes to creating a buzz about a recently listed home. Using your smartphone or a video camera, do a walk through of your home and your neighborhood, telling potential buyers about the best, most lovable parts. This will provide buyers with a little insight into why your home could be their forever home, as well as clue them into the most attractive features of the neighborhood.
  • Use social media to your advantage. Social media has become one of the top marketing tools for businesses and Realtors alike. Facebook, in particular, is a wonderful connector that allows you to spread the word about something quickly. When listing your home, use your personal Facebook account as well as your real estate agent’s Facebook in order to create as much buzz as possible.
  • Stage your home. Allowing an experienced Frisco Realtor to help highlight your home’s best features is one of the smartest things you can do. In fact, industry experts indicate that having a professional stager work their magic can make or break any deal. Home stagers have the knowledge, eye, and experience to show your home in a way that will allow people to envision their own belongings and truly see the house as a home.

We hope you now have an even better idea of how you can list your home in a way that will get people interested and allow you to sell it even faster – and at the price you want. To find out more about how The Cheney Group can help you sell your Frisco home, please contact us today!
