When it comes to selling your home in the Sacramento area, the ideal situation would be to get multiple offers, allowing you to get more return for your residence. Here are a few things to consider that can help make that happen, especially with Sacramento real estate being in high demand.
It's all about Location
If your home or property is in a good location, you're already ahead of the curve since that's the main thing home buyers look for. Keep in mind, though, that what makes a "good location" changes. So, if your neighborhood has improved, your home value will too. However, it can go the other way as well, but above all, be honest with yourself and work with your real estate agent to price your home properly. Which brings us to the next tip...
Make Sure the Price is Right
Unfortunately, many sellers inadvertently turn potential buyers away when they price their home too high. Think about it: While you may have paid a lot for your house or added a pool, this is not always relevant to a new buyer. What is relevant is what people are willing to pay for your house. Key factors in pricing your home properly are location, the type of market you’re in, if your home shows well, etc. If you price your home based at least on this criteria, you will attract the right buyers and be on your way to getting an offer or multiple offers.

Presentation is more important than ever nowadays, since a prospective buyer’s first glimpse of your home will most likely be via email or an online search, so that means you need to have outstanding photos. They will go a long, long way towards attracting buyers to schedule a viewing. Aside from some cosmetic upgrades and working on your home’s curb appeal, it’s important for you as a seller to declutter and de-personalize your home.
Know the Market
Knowing your area and what kind of market you’re in (buyers vs sellers), are some of the things you need to know before you even consider listing your home. Knowing your neighborhood and what houses have recently sold for will help you price your home properly and attract multiple offers. Working with an experienced, local real estate agent, like Rick Delgado and the team at Homes For Sacramento, will make this entire process much easier for you.
