5 New Year’s Resolutions for Selling Your Magnolia TX Home

The new year is just a few days away and if you, like many others, are making a list of resolutions to follow in 2017, you may want to expand to include your real estate goals too! The new year is a great opportunity to leave behind the old in favor of the new and create a fresh start in a new Magnolia TX home— But what if you need to sell your current property first?

As your real estate expert in the Magnolia and Tomball area, I’ve include five new year’s resolutions below that may help you achieve home seller success in the coming months.

Grab mobile buyer attention
Today’s homebuyers are no longer searching for homes in the newspaper alone or inquiring about properties if they happen to see a For Sale sign in the neighborhood. It’s important to recognize that homebuyers are constantly browsing homes on their smartphones, tablets, you name it, and it is your responsible to capture their attention in the first place they look! Your online listing photos should be high quality to really grab their interest.

Don’t let your emotions get in the way
When listing your home, you’ll need to take off your homeowner hat and put on your home seller hat. Letting your emotions get in the way of the sale could mean you pass by a great offer or even list at too high of a price. It is understandable that you have many memories in your home, but if you want to sell quickly and efficiently, you will need to be strategic.

Don’t list before you’re ready
You’ve heard of buyer’s remorse, but know that seller’s remorse can also be a reality! Resist the urge to list your Magnolia or Tomball TX home before you’re ready just because you see mortgage rates rising or other homes in your area begin to hit the market. It’s important that all of your bases have been covered before you list, including repairs, staging, and your plans for after the sale.

Don’t choose just any agent
Your real estate agent will be crucial to the home selling process and choosing just any agent could steer you in the wrong direction. Let us talk through your real estate goals for 2017 and how we can help you every step of the way!

Don’t For Sale by Owner
Just as I stressed the importance of which real estate agent you chose, remember that it’s equally as important that you choose one period. Going it alone means you are left to negotiate with every party involved in a real estate transaction and if you already have a full-time job, that can quickly become overwhelming and time-consuming! Leave it to the pros when selling your home— you won’t regret it!

There is no need to wait until spring to list your Magnolia TX home, now is your chance to get ahead of the wave of homes that will hit the market over the next few months. Give me a call today to discuss how you can prepare your home for today’s buyers and move on to your dream property in 2017!

Wishing you a happy and safe new year!
