Warwick NY| Access is an Important Factor in Getting Your House SOLD!
Selling a home is a daunting task for any homeowner. It involves an astute pricing strategy to position your house adequately and compete with the current market. Then the marketing process takes over to bring in the attention of all qualified buyers out there.
This is the part where most seller fail to recognize the importance of “great or mediocre” marketing. You are competing for the attention of all the buyers and they have lots of distractions that keep them away from your house…our marketing helps us connect with them at a deeper level.
It’s no surprise that homes sold by real estate agents sell faster, more easily, and for more money, because they are better prepared and they know the steps they must take at any given time to sell the house.
This is the reason why Realtors have access to knowledge and resources that the average homeowner does not, and statistically, a real estate agent will get a better price for a house than someone selling on their own.
Today, I would like to direct you to this point: Access is an Important Factor in Getting Your House SOLD!
So, you’ve decided to sell your house. You’ve hired a real estate professional to help you with the entire process, and they have asked you what level of access you want to provide to potential buyers.
There are four elements to a quality listing. At the top of the list is Access, followed by Condition, Financing, and Price. There are many levels of access that you can provide to your agent so that he or she can show your home.
Here are five levels of access that you can give to buyers, along with a brief description:
1.- Lockbox on the Door – this allows buyers the ability to see the home as soon as they are aware of the listing, or at their convenience.
2.- Providing a Key to the Home – although the buyer’s agent may need to stop by an office to pick up the key, there is little delay in being able to show the home.
3.- Open Access with a Phone Call – the seller allows showings with just a phone call’s notice.
4.- By Appointment Only (example: 48-Hour Notice) – Many buyers who are relocating for a new career or promotion start working in that area prior to purchasing their home. They often like to take advantage of free time during business hours (such as their lunch break) to view potential homes. Because of this, they may not be able to plan their availability far in advance or may be unable to wait 48 hours to see the house.
4.- Limited Access (example: the home is only available on Mondays or Tuesdays at 2pm or for only a couple of hours a day) – This is the most difficult way to be able to show your house to potential buyers.
In a competitive marketplace, access can make or break your ability to get the price you are looking for, or even sell your house at all.
