When it comes to selling your house, there are a lot of details to stay on top of. Perhaps you’re not sure where to begin in the process. Not to worry! Team French is ready and able to help you sell your home with ease. Here are 6 tips for getting the most out of your Gold Country home sale in 2022.
1. Have a Local Expert on Your Side

2. Make Small Improvements or Repairs
When a potential buyer visits your house, you want their first impression to be flawless! Remember, there are really two first impressions. The first is when the buyer first gets out of their car. So, improve your house’s curb appeal. Perhaps add new landscaping, fresh paint to the front door, or add a welcoming bench by the front door. The second first impression is when the potential buyer first steps into the house. Adding ample lighting, changing out cabinet handles, or adding staged furniture can quickly catch the eye of a potential buyer. Remember to clean thoroughly and organize and declutter. Buyers will often overlook smaller items or repairs for a home that is clean and move in ready.
3. Price Accurately
As a seller, you may be tempted to overprice your home in hopes of getting more profit out of the sale. In actuality, an overpriced home can detract potential buyers and leave your house on the market for longer. Team French can help you find the price that will portray the charm and worth of your house while attracting the right buyers and the most showings.
4. Market it Well
Eye-catching professional photos, professional videos, realty listings, social media use, and open houses are all examples of ways to market your home. Great marketing attracts the right buyers. With a deep background in marketing, Team French can market your home to sell.
To get the most out of your home, don’t be afraid to negotiate. You have the power and ability to negotiate price, closing costs, furniture, and more. Let your realtor help you make creative yet wise choices in negotiation. Also, always remember to be courteous to the buyer in the process. Real estate can be stressful to most and emotions can run high so we try to temper everyone’s urgency, stress, anxiety and emotions by keeping things pleasant, courteous and helpful as possible.
6. Understand Local Trends
Take time to study up on local realty trends to help get the most from your sale. What is the ratio of buyers to sellers in your market currently? When homes nearby sell quickly, what features do they have? What time of year does the market favor sellers in your area? Team French studies and analyzes these very trends for Gold Country real estate.
