Homes in Augusta Georgia

admin on February 25, 2011 in Articles

Housing is still on the decline with prices dropping on average 5% across the nation. There are some signs that the market is stabilizing but for most of us we would like to see the market recover instead of stabilize. It’s important to note that houses are still selling and there are a few things you can do to make yours sell better and faster. We have all heard the word "staging" and it’s time to put the staging to the test. Many of the homes on the market have not been staged properly and will not show as well when potential visitors come by for a visit.

Make sure the outside of your house is clean and neat and throw in some flowers in the visual path of the potential buyer. The entry should be welcoming and friendly and should entice the people to come in for a more detailed look. First impressions will go a long way in helping you sell your home. As you walk in the home make sure that it smells good and is free of clutter and kids toys. Keep the home warm and inviting and stage the house for those looking to be as though they were coming home.

Of course, you can’t forget the marketing. Make sure you use a realtor like Augusta Homes that has a real marketing strategy and has a track record of selling homes. If they are selling homes there must be a good reason. It is important for you to know that you don’t want to use a realtor that is just going to put your house on the market and leave it sitting there. You want to question the realtor on the marketing plan and make sure it included both local and internet advertising. If you do your homework, pick a good realtor and stage your home properly, you should do fine in selling your home for the price you need.
