Ask any Realtor® : They’ll tell you the first thirty days of a listing are “Prime Time”. Prime Time is when you’ll want to make the most of the opportunities presenting themselves.
New listings get the most attention. They’re at the top of the MLS, they feature the newest photos and information on the web sites and they’re firmly set in the minds of fellow Realtors® from caravan and Agent Open Houses.
Selling strategy is crucial. Many buyers are screening homes to view. Virtual tours are a boon to the strategy of selling, with buyers who are both just beginning their search and buyers who have been looking for a while.
Price it right. One of the keys to making sure your home stands out is to price it to compete with available properties of equivalent lot size, square footage and amenities.
Make sure your home is ready.
It is essential that your house is ready to be shown within the hour
that the listing first appears. Serious buyers will be searching the web for new listings all day, looking for that perfect home so don’t be surprised if you start receiving calls immediately, even without a Agent Open House to spark interest!
