Your Lake Tahoe real estate is likely one of your most important investments. It is important that when you are preparing your home for the market you do everything you can to maximize the return on your investment. One factor that you can’t control is market conditions. The real estate market is constantly fluctuating and if the real estate market is currently in a low, the best solutionis to hold off on the sale of your property if you have the ability to do so. However, there are many things you can do to ensure that your property sells for maximum dollar. The Alvin Steinberg Team can assist you in helping you get the maximum return on your Lake Tahoe Real Estate.
One of the most important factors when it comes to your home value is condition. Potential buyers are going to be coming through your home and checking every room and closet. While certain rooms or spaces you may consider less significant than others, you need to make sure your home is in excellent condition in all areas. Paint chips, loose door knobs, carpet stains, all of these things potential buyers are going to see. Another important thing to remember is that if there are broken appliances or systems in the home, the new home buyer is going to ask for them to be fixed anyway. You can save time, increase your chances of getting a maximum return on your investment, and make your home show better by making these minor fixes before you put your house on the market.
Another factor that you can control is how flexible you are with the terms of your sale. If you are willing to take a contingency or have a flexible closing date it is more likely to have a potential buyer pay a higher price. A lot of times home buyers are trying to purchase a home while they sell there current property. If you are willing to take a contract with a long closing date, it means you are sacrificing other potential offers to allow this buyer to own your home. Long closing dates are generous in the home market, and working with a buyer to help him or her on their end is a great way to get the desired asking price.
