You need to go the extra step or two to make your house as welcoming and inviting as you can, and that means from the curb to the inside.

In a recent article in the Portsmouth Herald, an article “Staging Helps Home Sale Speed and Price”, the author talked about the benefits of making sure your home is properly presented to potential buyers, and ways to go about doing that.  Be sure to check out that article for more detailed information on the staging process and how it can help in the home-selling process.

Getting your Portsmouth NH home sold in today’s real estate market….

For buyers in today’s market, it’s the EXPERIENCE they feel when they view your home, and you want that to be the very best it can be, from the first moment they lay eyes on your home from the street.  That exterior curb appeal has to be such that it makes them want to come see the inside of the home.  Once they’re inside, you want your entryway to speak to them and beckon them in further.

Getting things right from the start – price and presentation – will help your home sell quicker than the competition and typically for the most money the market will bear.  It’s all about attention to detail and the experience!

Selling Your Portsmouth NH Home – Three Times Or More

Did you know it takes at least 3 times to sell your Portsmouth NH home to get it SOLD??

Yes, you read that correctly!

The first time you sell it is to other agents working with buyers.  When you have your home on the market, you want the agents who are showing it to really try to sell YOUR home and not your competition.

The second time you sell it is to the buyer.  Typically most homeowners think the buyer is the only one they have to sell to, but if the agents aren’t sold it, the buyer may never get a chance to see it.

The third time you have to sell your house is to the bank or mortgage company’s appraiser.  Appraisers today are pretty conservative and their appraisals are being scrutinized like never before.  They really have to make sure they can justify and support the value they come up with.

Recently, we’ve found ourselves having to deal with second appraisals.  Some banks and mortgage companies have been ordering a second appraisal to be done, oftentimes after the mortgage commitment date has passed.  So, that means homeowners could be subjected to having to sell their homes four times.

There’s so much competition on the market in many areas and in most price ranges that it’s imperative you price your home to sell right from the start.  You might reach an agreement with a buyer on a price you’re both happy with, but that price must also pass muster with the appraiser, and then perhaps a second appraiser.
