You’re in luck if you’re considering selling your home in 2022. Experts are predicting another year that favors sellers over buyers, with lots of competition for homes on the market. That said, there are still things you can do to make your home more attractive to buyers and ensure it sells quickly and for the highest possible asking price. In this blog, we’re sharing a few of our favorite tips for selling your home in 2022. Let’s dive in. Price your home properly If the past few years have demonstrated anything, it’s that buyers will pay high prices for a house. In 2021, home prices peaked at a year-over-year rate of 20%, and it didn’t stop buyers from seeking out properties. That said, it’s still important to price your home appropriately. If you’re working with a real estate agent, pay attention to the numbers they suggest for your home. Pricing your home competitively will generate multiple offers, some of which may be more than the list price. Pricing your home too high, on the other hand, won’t generate showings and will likely result in your home sitting on the market longer than it needs to. Invest in professional photos Did you know that real estate listings with professional photographs sell 32% faster than homes with DIY photos? Invest in professional photography for your home’s online listing. Professional photographs make your home look polished and welcoming and accurately show its best features. Most importantly, good pictures help would-be buyers understand whether your home is a good fit for them – which is essential for out-of-state buyers who might not see the home in person before making an offer. Declutter Before listing your home, real estate agents recommend removing all artwork and personal effects, getting rid of at least half your furniture, and decluttering the entire space. This is important: when buyers walk into your house, they want to see themselves in the home. If it still feels like you, it’ll be hard for them to picture themselves in the home. Decluttering and clearing out personal effects creates a blank slate that’s attractive to buyers. If you need help decluttering, we’ve got your back.

Deep clean the home Before putting the home on the market, make sure you’ve given it a deep clean. Wipe down the walls, repaint scuffed areas, buff, and wax hardwood floors, replace old carpets as needed, clean the refrigerator and all kitchen appliances, clean all windows indoors and out, remove clutter from the yard, and wipe down blinds. A clean home is a welcoming home! Have your home staged Buyers need help visualizing a home’s potential, and staging is a great way to provide that. In addition to spending more on staged homes, buyers generally make offers on them more quickly. Follow these staging tips to make your home stand out to buyers. Start planning your move in advance In this market, it’s safe to assume that your house will sell quickly. Moreover, eager buyers may insist on an accelerated closing, giving you only a few weeks to get out of the home. With this in mind, start planning for your move in advance.
