Buyers are out in full force along the Jersey Shore. However, they are being met with a tight housing inventory, which means competition is fierce among buyers. If you are looking to sell your home along the Jersey Shore that is good news for you as competition has driven up prices in recent months. But that means as a seller you still need to do your part to maximize your selling price and draw in as many potential buyers as you can.
To draw in a large number of buyers, start by doing a few minor home improvements and remodeling. Don’t let the idea of remodeling scare you away because you envision a hefty price tag. A few minor, yet affordable changes can help you get top dollar for your Jersey Shore home.
We can’t stress enough the importance of your home making a good first impression. The exterior of your home and yard is the first thing a buyer sees. Spruce up your home’s exterior by keeping your lawn mowed and neatly manicured. Take the time to power-wash your exterior or add a fresh coat of paint if needed. Make your home appealing and inviting by adding vibrant plants and flowers. Don’t forget to have outdoor lighting that will make your home visible by those who are driving by for an evening look.
Buyers will first decide by the outside of your home if they want to take a tour of the inside. Once you have spruced up the exterior then it’s time to move inside. Update your kitchen with a fresh coat of paint and new modern hardware for kitchen cabinets. Modernize your home’s interior with new light fixtures. De-clutter and give your home a thorough cleaning.
If there are any known problems with your home, address them now before they come up during a home inspection and you risk losing a buyer. If your home is older and outdated find ways to update it without breaking the bank. A fresh coat of paint in a neutral color can go a long way.
