As a marketing specialist,  I am happy to share the secrets of stress free selling. As you can see my strategies have worked for my clients throughout Northern New Jersey, so it should work for you.

 

It is a seller's market in most areas, however, that doesn't mean you don't need a very strobg marketer to get you the highest possible price.

Staging  and online marketing expertise are the two most important skil sets when searching for a Realtor.

Step 1 - Setting the Price:

Many factors are analyzed to optimize your home's list price including updates to the house, recent sale prices of similar homes, location and amount of staging etc. Getting it right so it attracts the most amount of buyers is critical.

 

Almost as important as the list price is the way you prepare your home before placing it on the market. In addition to de-cluttering, in expensive, but important changes/improvements go a long way. The # 1 improvement is paint. To appeal to today's buyers you'll want to select cool hues like pale grays, light blues etc. and you'll want to remove as much wallpaper as possible. Small updates like new light fixtures, pillows and area rugs contemporarize a living space without spending big bucks.

The outside is every bit as crucial as the interior. When a buyer drives up to the home their initial reaction in many cases determines their interest. Make sure the exterior paint is not cracked or peeling, plant flowers in a pot next to the front door. Sweep debry off paths and steps.
