Getting the Highest Price in the Shortest Time

In order to get the highest price in the shortest time, you need to know how to market your home. The better you market your home, the more offers you will get. And the more offers you get, the more choices you have to get the price and terms you want.

The most important factor of marketing your home is pricing it right. Your price should be adjusted to reflect the market and your property’s worth. The key is to get as many people as possible checking out your fairly priced property. If your property is not priced fairly, there will be no buyers because your price is set too high.

Another important factor is the condition of your home. Make sure that your home looks ready to be sold. Fix any defects (peeling or faded paint, cracks, stains, etc.) Condition alone can sometimes prompt fast buying decisions. Not only should you fix any defects, but consider upgrading your home by making major repairs and cosmetic improvements before selling. A nice looking home triggers the emotional response that can lead to a financial response.

Learn how to negotiate the best terms for all parties involved. Terms are another factor that may be adjusted to attract buyers. If you insist on getting your asking price, think of what you can offer to the buyers. For example, improvements you’ve made or even offering seller financing at a lower than market interest rate on a portion of the sale price. Convince them why they should be paying the price you have set.

Lastly, get the buzz out about your home. List your house with a hot agent that ensures your house is listed on the MLS and on the Internet. On your own, get the word out. It should always be visible to passersby that your house is for sale, whether it is through signs, local advertisements or you telling friends, family, and acquaintances.

They Said What?

By far, the best realtor that we have dealt with. Dawn is very down to earth, patient, and has a great personality! Dawn went above and beyond to help us find our first home. With the requirements we had, we knew it would not be easy, but we ended up finding our first home within a month! She made our experience a breeze! As new homeowners, we were unsure of how the process worked. Dawn made it very simple and was always right there to answer any and all questions we had. Our overall experience was great! Everything moved very quickly and smooth and we didn't have to worry about much at all. It is a great feeling to know we were in great hands! Brittany Creveling and Steve Powlus
Dawn is by far the BEST realtor a person could ask for! When we signed our contract, we worked with Dawn and Ron! What a great team! I know at times selling or buying a home can be frustrating, but Dawn knew just how to calm me down. Both are very professional and knowledgeable in their field! Thank you, thank you, thank you! This was the second house you sold for me; and, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to any Buyer or Seller! J & L Lex, Bloomsburg, PA
Couldn't have found our dream home without Dawn! She was so amazing and such an incredibly hard worker! I would recommend her to anybody looking to buy a house!! Victoria Confer, Bloomsburg PA
Couldn’t be happier with the exemplary service provided by Dawn. If you want a professional, driven and thorough agent, she is the one for you!  Stephanie Crawford, Bloomsburg PA
Dawn made my family's home selling experience painless. As others have said she also went out of her way even after hours to answer questions and put out fires... We could not have done it with out her and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in our area.. Christian Duffy, Millville PA
