3 Ways to Get Your Alaskan Home Ready for a Quick Sale This Year
If you read our last blog post on trends in Alaska real estate, you'll notice a common theme— lack of inventory! Alaska needs more listings in order to fulfill demand from those buyers currently searching for "the one," but left with few choices. So what's in it for you if you decide to pursue listing your home in Fairbanks, Anchorage, North Pole, Eagle River, Palmer or Wasilla now? Aside from the fact that homes in Alaska are still selling at reasonable rate, home values are also increasing!
Price the property correctly
One of the most important factors when listing your home is the sale price. You may have a number in your head right away, but remember that prices must keep the current real estate market in mind. Madden Real Estate will take various factors—including comparable properties and market values—into account when pricing your home and we will price it correctly from the beginning!
Market the home to today's buyer
By working with Madden Real Estate, you can rest assured knowing that we will tailor our marketing to fit today's homebuyer in Alaska! 2016 has been said to be a popular year for Millennials to buy a home and they are looking for a certain set of criteria— open floor plans, outdoor space and updated kitchens and baths. However, do not worry if your home lacks these features as we will highlight the assets your home does have! Our comprehensive marketing plan will get your home seen by thousands of motivated buyers.
Stage the home to sell
Your home in Fairbanks, Anchorage, North Pole, Eagle River, Palmer or Wasilla should be presented in the best possible light when listed and one of the best ways to do so is with home staging. Small projects like deep cleaning the property from top to bottom, clearing walkways, removing clutter, giving rooms a fresh coat of paint and cleaning windows to let in more light can have a big impact when buyers arrive. Remember, buyers want to be able to visualize themselves living in the home and staging can help set the scene.
We look forward to hearing from you!
