Most home sellers are thrilled to get their asking price, but not all of them have thought about the tips and tricks their agent can provide to help them sell their home above asking price. Here are four tips and tricks we use to get more money for our sellers than what they asked for.

The first is pricing your home slightly below your preferred asking price. This garners a lot of interest and attracts more buyers. It can also potentially generate a bidding war over your home.

Another tip to consider is holding out for the right offer. You don’t always want to take the first offer that comes in because you’re not giving every buyer a chance to see your property in person. If you allow a few open houses and maybe wait until the end of the weekend, you might get a few more offers to choose from that might give you better terms or a better price.

Highlight your home’s unique features in its listing information.

The third tip is to remember that spring is hands-down the best time of year to list your home. Because most people prefer to move over the summer and they don’t have to worry about switching their kids over to a different school district, spring is when they really ramp up their searches.

Lastly, one of the most prominent things buyers look for in a home today is unique features. If you’ve recently done some updates or you have some unique features, try highlighting those features in your listing information. If your house has cookie-cutter information in its listing, that won’t differentiate you from anyone else or tempt buyers to add your home to their tour list over other homes.

If you have any other questions about how to sell your home above asking price, please feel free to give us a call. We’d be happy to speak with you.
