TIPS FOR ORANGE COUNTY HOME SELLERS to help them stay competitive in today’s real estate market
1. Price the Orange County home competitively from the start
Largest number of showings will occur in the first two to three weeks. The multiple listing services and the Internet will drive most showings. Experts agree that it’s important for sellers to get a competitive and realistic price from the start.
2. Consider sweetening the deal for buyers
Orange County home sellers might be able to lure more buyers by offering extra incentives, like leaving the refrigerator, clothing washer and dryer or other items that would be difficult to move. This might include wall-mounted flat-screen TVs. Perks for buyers can help attract them and their positive decisions.
3. Make sure the home is show-ready and in move-in condition.
Get rid of the clutter, so the Orange County home doesn’t feel cozy and cramped. Sellers should get and keep homes clean, especially kitchen and bathroom countertops, which sometimes accumulate personal items that can hinder showing the home’s good features.
Orange County home sellers should get the house in move-in condition as much as possible, such as fixing all repairs and replacements before it is listed for sale. The home should be ready to go for buyers. It’s a beauty contest for selling a house in Orange County, California, and there is competition.
