6 Selling Strategies For Your Fountain Hills Home!

2013 is shaping up to be a year of opportunity for Fountain Hills home sellers! If you are thinking of putting your home on the market, now is the time! 

We have motivated buyers looking for Arizona homes all year around, and the winter months are an excellent time to sell!

In addition to the valuable selling tips I have on my website, I have a few home selling ideas for you here from AOL real estate. I've added thoughts from my own experience:

1. Instead of downplaying an unusual home feature, promote it towards a certain type of buyer. For example, if you have a two-bedroom home with a four-car garage, it could be perfect for a car enthusiast! Or, if you have a small second bedroom, it may be perfect for a nursery or home office. Decorate the room/area accordingly.

2. Include a perk in return for a full-price offer. Things like a golf membership, a home security service or home warranty can draw a lot of attention, and sweeten the deal for a buyer.

3. Accommodate showing appointment requests, even if it means some inconvenience. Being flexible can help you find the right buyer.

4. Beware of flashy marketing gimmicks that promise big-price offers. If your home cannot live up to its marketing when the buyers see it in person, the only one who "wins" is the advertising company.

5. De-personalize your home. It's hard to take down family photos, but since your goal is to sell and move on, you need to do this at some point anyway! Decorate sparse walls with tasteful, inexpensive artwork or photos of local scenery.

6. Do some home staging! You don't have to spend a bundle. A good technique is to pretend you are having a dinner party or other gathering. Display new guest towels and fancy soaps in the washrooms. Set the dining room table. Have a vase of fresh flowers on the table. Put out the little extras that say "welcome" to guests!
