Are you trying to sell your Los Angeles house? Before you start dreaming about what to do with the money, stop for a second and think everything through.
Have you set up the conditions for selling the house for the best price?
If so, you should know that there are certain aspects that can lower the price.
Here are four things that may hinder your efforts of closing a profitable deal on your house:
1. Low-Quality House Photos
Millennial buyers are first and foremost digital people. Before even making a call, they will look a house up on the Internet.
So, if you advertise your home online, you will probably stand no chance unless you include some pictures of your house. However, blurry or irrelevant photos may be as ineffective as no images at all.
Now, I don’t mean you should hire a professional photographer to take some artistic pictures of your home. You can use a smartphone or regular camera for taking them. Just make sure they:
- Get the right angle of a room
- Make your house’s high point stand out
- Are clear and offer proper lighting
2. No Timely Access to House Visits
Once people have decided to buy a Los Angeles house, they’ll set off on a real market search. These people are not so keen on getting “Not now” for an answer when they want to see your house.
When you turn them down for a house tour, you may as well say goodbye to your potential buyers.
Plus, don’t underestimate the power of word-of-mouth advertising. People talk about bad experiences like not being able to visit a house they want to buy.
Some of them may even take the time to write bad reviews on any website where your house pops up.
Would you like to see your home discussed as being inaccessible? If not, organize your life and home setting in a way that allows prompt access for your buying prospects.
3. Bad Rooming
When people buy a Los Angeles House, they expect it to look in a certain way. Most of all, buyers appreciate wide, bright open spaces rather than small, dark rooms.
As this types of houses involve great financial investments, people do not wish to buy a house and start remodeling. Try making some small changes that will ensure there will be enough light and space in the living-dining-kitchen area.
It’s true! These changes may cost you some money. However, you risk losing more if you do not “upgrade” your house by getting a lot less money or not making a sale at all.
4. Asking Too Much Even for a Los Angeles House
Pricing a Los Angeles house higher than its real value will soon turn against you.
There are few chances you will get to sell the home for too high a price. This means you have to reduce it gradually.
Here’s what happens if you reduce the price of your house a few times: Buyers may think there’s something wrong with it.
They won’t waste any more time with your home. The whole deal will seem tricky, and they will avoid it by all means.
So, why risk getting a fair deal on your house by over or even underpricing it? Let an expert make a fair and square evaluation of your property and get the best price you possibly can.
