#6 Hire A Local Professional For Photos & Videos

Visuals such as photos and short videos are everything on the internet these days especially social media and marketing efforts. The photos and videos of your house are what will attract people to your online property listing. Most of the time when people search for “Tallahassee homes for sale”, they will see the listing photos well before they ever step off to view the property in person. It pays to hire a creative, local professional to show off the house at an angle we could never accomplish with our Androids and iPhones. Create excitement with an amazing visual through a local real estate photographer or videographer.

#7 See This As A Business

Your home is your greatest asset, and selling it should not be treated like selling an item on Craigslist. People, product, and process are very important to any business and local real estate agents know that! If you want to sell it well with a good profit, get into that mindset. Be prepared to answer any questions over the phone and through emails. Have open communication with all parties involved. Transparency is also key to any property transaction. Be open to criticism with an open mind. We know this can be stressful at times but a business mindset actually adds to the beauty and investment of a house.

#8 Always Be Ready For A Showing

Always leave the home in a clean and orderly state so you get the most out of every showing. If you can do it during the week, plan to put in a few hours every weekend to tidy up every room. Every piece of clutter will make the house less desirable to a potential buyer. Make your buyers and agents feel welcome and entertained. Leave some homemade cookies even, and just leave them on the kitchen table with a note! Every little aspect of a viewing that is ready to show will give you better chances of make the sale in the first few weeks.

#9 Price The Property With The Real Estate Market In Mind

Don’t create a barrier with an unrealistic price point for people viewing the house and their Realtors. On the other hand, don’t price it as a steal either. This is a very thin line and hiring a professional agent that will give you an educated assessment is a must! If the price is too high, your house will sit on the market for months with too few views. And the longer it sits, the less value other Realtors will place on it in Tallahassee, FL. When in doubt, always hire a professional for their expertise.
