House with Sold sign in yardThe residential real estate market is still close to its peak. The current prices are among the highest of all time! As an investor, I am often asked by property owners about what they can do to get the highest price for their property. I have answered this question numerous times; I thought it’s better to write a short article about the three ways in which you can get top dollar for your property.

Spruce up your property with a Rehab

Many of us live in our properties and don’t see its flaws. Think about it. When was the last time you noticed something was broken and needed to be fixed? It’s usually when you are going to have visitors come over, and you need the home to be presentable! When you decide to sell your property, you will show your home to several different people. In order to make a good impression, consider investing some money in rehabbing your property and making it show well. This is a tricky area, and you must have an expert by your side to help you get it right. If you over-Rehab your property, you won’t recover your money’s worth. If you under-rehab, you may not get the highest price. This is a subject best discussed with a specialist Realtor who understands the exact aspects in which rehab is needed. The second expert you will need is a RELIABLE contractor who will be able to carry out the rehab on time, on budget, and on specification. This sounds pretty simple but trust me, it isn’t! Finding the right crew is like looking for a needle in a haystack. If you already have someone you can trust, speak with them. If you don’t, you can always call us, and we will be happy to offer a FREE consultation on what can be done.

Listing it with a Specialist

We hear about Realtors who specialize in certain types of real estate, but how many specialists do we really meet? Most realtors are part-timers who are doing real estate as a side hustle. As the property owner, it costs you the same amount of money to work with a part-timer or a seasoned professional. Why not choose the latter? When you decide to sell, always go with the best agent you can find. Ask questions like how many houses they have sold in the last few months and how they would help you get the best price for your property. In the ideal case, the agent will have a rehab crew, professional photographers, and staging crew that can help you fetch the best value. See some examples of their previous work and decide whether or not you would work with them. Judge them by their results and how easy it is to work with them. If you know of an agent like this, go ahead and speak with them. In case you need a reference, you can always call us at 727-201-4011 (Graystone Real Estate), and we’ll be happy to suggest the right agent for you.
