Tips For Selling Your Home Before You Move
Once you decide to sell your home, the less time it takes, the better. The market fluctuates from month to month, season to season, and year to year, but regardless of whether it’s up or down, there are steps you can take to help speed up the sale. With all the details and planning involved in such a massive undertaking, selling your home before you move gives you one less thing to worry about. Platinum Moving Services, will guide you through the entire residential moving experience, allowing you to focus on attracting just the right buyer, using these handy tips to get you started.
Tips For Selling Your Home Before You Move
Your choice of broker is instrumental in your success. Pick one that is informed, is an experienced agent in your neighborhood, who is tech-savvy, and who actively monitors and updates their MLS listings, where buyers tend to look first.
The Price Is Right
There are a number of theories on how to price your home, depending on whether it’s a buyers or sellers market. With the former, price your home in line with comparable properties within your neighborhood. If you price too low, you’ll lose money, and if you go too high, your home will sit without any offers. In a sellers market, one school of thought is to determine the market value of your home and price it 15 to 20 percent below, triggering a bidding war, with a potential sale price higher than what your home is worth.
Don’t Take It Personally
Store away personal items such as collectibles, family photos, and memorabilia. You want buyers to envision themselves living in your home, rather than picturing you living in it.
Focus On What’s Important
Kitchens and bathrooms sell. While now isn’t the time for a remodel, shine up fixtures, repair leaky faucets, upgrade cabinetry hardware, and highlight available storage in both rooms by clearing clutter from cupboards and drawers.
Appeal To The Masses
Upgrade your curb appeal to make buyers stop and want to see more of your home. Touch up paint, plant some flowers, and keep your lawn and landscaping trimmed and tidy.
Go With The Flow
Place larger items such as bulky furniture in storage to allow potential buyers to move with ease from room to room, creating the illusion of more space.

“Platinum takes professional to a whole new level!”
“Platinum moving made an extraordinary showing of moving me from DC to Mexico City, Mexico. I was somewhat focused as this was the primary worldwide move that I needed to orchestrate all alone as I had been fortunate to have the USG move me all my past times. I had a tight window, a couple of weeks in which to arrange the move. Platinum was extraordinary in working with me to plan the review rapidly and the resulting pack-out. The group they had for me was obliging, proficient, and fast. There was somewhat of a postponement in the entry of the holder from Baltimore, MD because of a mishap and activity that day yet that was minor considering everything by and large. They additionally combined me with an incredible organization in Mexico, called Balderas. There were just a couple of days postponement at the traditions/port in Veracruz before my stuff landed at my new able in Mexico City. Generally, thanks such a great amount to Platinum and Balderas for making the move easily on their parts.”
