Selling Tip #5: Hire a Professional Photographer

Most homebuyers start looking for a property online or in local home magazines. That means you need to have great images that accentuate your home’s best features and selling points.

After you’ve improved curb appeal, made necessary upgrades, and depersonalized the interior spaces, consider hiring a professional photographer to take high-quality images, in the best light.

These great images will inspire buyers to come to your open houses or request a tour. Make sure you or your Realtor post the listing online, using a free home buying site like Zillow.

Selling Tip #6: Choose the Right Time to Sell

Historically, spring is the most popular home-buying season. The weather is good, and families with kids can make a smooth transition during the upcoming summer break. So while serious home buyers will shop year-round, consider having your property spruced up and ready to sell by March or April.

If you follow these tips, you’ll have a leg up on the local competition--and will attract as many buyers as possible, for the right price.
