Should You Establish Home Selling Goals?

by Lacey Lawrence 06/24/2020

If you want to streamline the home selling journey, it usually is a good idea to develop goals. That way, you can identify any potential home selling challenges and address them before you list your residence.

Ultimately, there are many problems that may arise during the home selling journey, and these include:

1. Poor Curb Appeal

How your home looks to buyers is key. If your residence fails to impress buyers when they see it for the first time, these individuals are unlikely to schedule a house showing. As a result, your home may linger on the real estate market for an extended period of time.

Devote time and energy to improve your house's curb appeal – you will be happy you did. By mowing the lawn, removing dirt and debris from exterior walkways and performing other home exterior upgrades, you can make your home an attractive option to buyers. You may even differentiate your residence from the competition – something that may lead to a successful home selling experience.

2. Cluttered Interior

If your home is full of personal belongings, you may want to remove some of these items. By doing so, you can show buyers the full potential of your residence.

For those who want to cut down on clutter, there are many options. Oftentimes, it helps to rent a storage unit that allows you to keep your belongings safe until your residence sells. On the other hand, if you want to get rid of excess items, you can host a yard sale, list your items online or give these items to family members, friends or local charities.

3. Exorbitant Home Price

An exorbitant initial home asking price may be an instant turn-off for buyers. Fortunately, if you analyze the local housing market and your residence, you can establish a competitive initial asking price for your home.

Evaluate the prices of available homes in your area that are similar to your own. Also, you may want to conduct a house appraisal and review an appraisal report. With this information at your disposal, you can price your house competitively.

As you get set to enter the housing market, you may want to employ a real estate agent, too. This housing market professional will help you establish realistic home selling goals, as well as determine the best steps to help you achieve your aspirations.

A real estate agent is committed to a home seller's success, and he or she will do what it takes to help you thrive. If you want to sell your residence as quickly as possible, for instance, a real estate agent can help you do just that. Or, if you want to optimize your house sale earnings, a real estate agent will ensure you can get the best price for your home.

Hello!
I am Lacey Lawrence, Affiliate Broker with Black Lion Realty in the Nashville area.
I've lived in Nashville and it's surrounding areas for about 23 years. I grew up in the quiet hills of Franklin, TN and have lived in the city of Nashville for 9 years.
One thing I truly love about Nashville is having the best of both worlds. Our city offers an endless number of restaurants, music, sports, festivals and more. And when you need a breath of fresh air, the beautiful, open land with rolling hills are just a short drive away.
I've been here through Nashville's biggest changes, and it is continuing to grow everyday. But nothing has changed when it comes to the friendliness of the city, which has so many great, close knit communities.
I got into the Real Estate business because I know and love this city so much and want others to experience the same! Selling or buying a home can seem overwhelming for some people, and I want to be someone you can fully trust to listen to your wants and needs to make the process more enjoyable and successful for you.
I want all of my clients to know that they are a top priority to me. Whether you are buying or selling a $150,000 home or an $800,000 home, I promise to treat each of my clients with the equal time, respect and quality that you deserve.
Nashville is full of so many great people and places. I want my clients to love where they live! A home in Nashville is an investment for your future and I want to be a part in in helping you find that.
