Our expertise is in helping you get your house ready and making it easy for prospective buyers to imagine themselves happily living in your home, and it should happen quickly. Research shows that buyers make the real decision about a house purchase in the first eleven seconds of seeing it.
It is our intention at RARE Properties of Jackson Hole to secure the absolute best market price for your home, in the shortest time, with the least hassles.Decades of combined real estate experience have taught us that a few easy but critical steps will make your home sell at a higher price from 5 to 15 percent or more and in a shorter time.
Here are some low-cost, high-return upgrades to improve the perceived value of your house or condominium:
Visually expand the rooms. Storing half your clothes will make closets look twice as big. Get rid of excess or worn-out furniture. Increase the buyer’s comfort.
A clean house sells faster and for more money than a dirty one. Get your house squeaky clean. If you do nothing else, do this!
A motivated buyer will probably bring in a professional house inspector. Make sure nothing is there to be found. Deferred maintenance makes buyers crazy.
Eliminate strong personal statements
If the buyer senses this property still belongs to you, it can give them “territorial anxiety”, and they’ll feel it will never belong to them. Put away your toy soldier collection. Reduce family photos to a treasured few. Your master suite and kitchen should look like a model home.
The house should appear to be in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Even your house number should be new and bright. Pay special attention to the kitchen and master bath, these rooms are always at the top of a buyer’s list.
