Why Should a Buyer Purchase Your Residence?

by Marsha Bell 08/25/2019

As a home seller, it is important to make your house a must-have for buyers. Otherwise, your home may linger on the real estate market for an extended period of time. Worst of all, you may struggle to optimize your house sale earnings.

Ultimately, there are lots of things you can do to make your house an attractive option to dozens of prospective buyers, including:

1. Upgrade Your Home's Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is crucial, particularly for a seller who wants to stir up significant interest in his or her residence. If you allocate time and resources to upgrade your house's curb appeal, you could help your residence stand out from other available homes.

It generally won't take long to improve a house's curb appeal. In some instances, a seller can mow the lawn, trim the hedges and perform minor lawn care tasks to transform a house's exterior. Also, it may be beneficial to repair or replace any damaged home siding.

2. Eliminate Clutter

If your home is loaded with personal belongings, you may want to remove these items. That way, you can show off the full size of your home to buyers during showings and open house events.

To cut down on clutter, you can rent a storage unit and use it to hold various personal belongings until your residence sells. In addition, you can always donate any unwanted items to charity, give them to family members or friends or sell them as part of a yard sale.

3. Enhance Your Home's Interior

A neat, tidy home interior can make a world of difference in buyers' eyes. Thus, if you clean your residence from top to bottom, your house could impress buyers as soon as they walk through the front door.

Of course, if you need help with upgrading your house's interior, you can employ a home cleaning company. By shopping around for home cleaning companies in your city or town, you are sure to find a professional cleaning firm that offers the right combination of affordability and convenience.

As you get set to navigate the home selling journey, don't forget to hire a real estate agent, either. If you have a real estate agent at your side, you can receive plenty of support as you try to generate buyers' interest in your house.

A real estate agent understands what it takes to promote a house to the right groups of prospective buyers. As such, he or she will craft a custom home selling strategy designed to help you showcase your residence to potential buyers. Plus, a real estate agent will host house showings and keep you up to date with buyer feedback. And if you receive an offer to purchase your home, a real estate agent will help you weigh the pros and cons of accepting this proposal.

Marsha Bell

Real Estate is a relationship business. Although we negotiate and market homes, we are in the business of helping people through transitions in their lives (getting married, having babies, empty nesting, investing for family reasons) and for someone to invite us into that process is an honor and requires trust in us and our skill set.

I have been a resident of Marin for over 35 years. I raised my family, devoted time to volunteering at my children’s schools, kept an eye on local politics as they affected education and the quality of life in the region, and acquired an understanding of the cities and neighborhoods of the county.

I honed my skills as an event manager, through 18 years producing an annual gala raising funds for Okizu, which provides a camp for kids with cancer and their families. Overseeing details too numerous to count, my efforts raised over six million dollars with elaborate and creatively themed events. My real estate clients can be certain I will provide the same creativity and attention to detail on their behalf. My organization skills and sensitivity were also needed while serving as the project manager for the state of CA in a pilot program connecting low-income youth to pathways to jobs in the energy industry. Through my own efforts to downsize as my children left the nest, I can be a great help to others hoping to do the same – assisting them not only in finding a new home, but also with the difficult task of shrinking the volume of their possessions – all accomplished with a sympathetic understanding of the emotional aspect of this change. I also hold an SRES designation, taking this a step further with the needs and concerns of seniors.

Whether you’re looking to buy or sell in the Bay Area, I will assist you with every phase of the process. I listen and focus on what my client’s real estate needs are and make certain I exceed their expectations. I have a passion for my real estate career and I love what I do. My success is because of determination, focus and attention to details.

Authenticity, passion, professionalism — these three things show our humanity and build trust.

I look forward to assisting you through your transitions.
