Unique Ways to Sell Your Home

With Today’s market being kind of slow for sellers, it’s going to take a little more than painting, cutting the grass, and trimming the hedges.  You want to make your home stand out and become memorable for those picky buyers out there. Don’t end up like all the other sellers out there and drop your price in order to become attractive. What can you do to make your home stand out?

  1. Lighted signs that illuminate after dark: Now that it becomes dark a lot earlier, give your buyers a chance to see that your home is for sale.
  2. Hosting an open house: Be creative when you or your agent are holding an open house.  90& of the time you will not find a buyer so offer light snacks or something to hand out so they remember your home.
  3. Create an informational flyer: Not everyone is familiar with the surroundings of your home.  Put together a information sheet with schools, shopping, hospitals, malls, restaurants, attractions, etc.
  4. Comps: Create an information sheet with your homes features and why it’s the best home on the block.  It doesn’t hurt to show what your home has and the one down the street lacks.
  5. Staging: If your home is staged with a warm and inviting feeling, it’s going to be at the top of a buyer’s list.
  6. Offer incentives: In today’s market, almost everyone is offering to pay for the buyer’s closing costs.  Stand out by offering a credit towards newer appliances, Home Depot or Lowe’s gift cards, or a year’s worth of homeowners dues.  This is a less expensive route that looks more enticing.
  7. Paint your garage floor: By doing this unique trick, it will make your whole house feel newer.
  8. Tell your neighbors: Offer your neighbors a gift to spread the word at work and with their peers.  A $200 gift card will pay off.
  9. Signage: Be sure to have directional signs pointing to your home. This is especially important if your home is hard to find.
  10. Post up Flyers: Posting flyers at your local grocery store and shopping areas will get people’s attention.
  11. YouTube: Make sure your Realtor® posts up a video of your home on YouTube.  It’s free and can reach millions of people.
  12. Craigslist: Another free avenue of advertising is on Craigslist.  There are multiple other free sites that your Realtor® should know.
  13. Email HR departments at local companies: Employees like to live close to their work.  The hard part is finding the time to house hunt.  So make it easy for them by sending them the information.
