Selling Your Fairbanks, Anchorage, Wasilla Alaska Home in the New Year
According to a new study by real estate brokerage Redfin, winter is the best time to sell your Alaskan home. In fact, the season poised between December 21 and March 20 brings more focused buyers and sellers to the market than any other time of year.
Now that the new year is here, it's time to get a jump on selling your home in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer or Wasilla and with a few specific resolutions, you can take advantage of all that this opportune real estate season has to offer.
Appeal to buyers where they look
Most homebuyers in the Alaskan real estate market today begin their search for a new home online. Optimizing your listing with quality photos and descriptions is the first step to piquing interest on your property. The team at Madden Real Estate knows how to appeal to these buyers in the first place they look and we have a marketing plan to help bring you home seller success.
Look at your home as an investment
Homes carry memories and as an Alaskan homeowner, you likely have strong emotions attached to the property. However, as a home seller, it's important to put your emotions aside and look at your home as an investment. Letting your emotions get in the way could force you to reject a great offer or fail to negotiate with a serious buyer. Switching from your homeowner hat to your home seller hat is crucial in the selling process.
Don't sell before you are ready
This new year's resolution is perhaps the most important of all— do not list your home in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer until you are ready. There are steps to take before you'll be ready to list: decluttering and cleaning your home, coordinating where you'll live after you sell, working with your agent on pricing your home.
