I focus on the amenities of your home that may be unique or of special interest to a potential buyer. Is it a single level? Perhaps a group of 65 or older would be interested because of accessibility. Does it have a large bonus room? Perhaps a young family would be interested.
Statistically, the National Association of Realtors tells us the average home buyer moves every 3-5 years and purchases a home for 52% more than the home they just sold. Using this information can help us to determine where your buyer may come from. If we list a $300,000 home, statistically the buyer should come from a $150,000 to $160,000 neighborhood and would have lived in that neighborhood for over 3 years. Statistics also show that, on average, most people move within 7 miles of their current home.
The National Association of Realtors has also found that 30% of homes are sold within some relation to your surrounding neighbors.
I have my “Target” now what?
To sell your home for top dollar, we want to market to a larger group than current buyers. Many people think about purchasing a new home long before they take the necessary steps to actually make the purchase. There are also many people who have no idea that they are qualified to purchase a home and therefore never take the necessary steps to achieve that goal. As a professional in the Real Estate field I have had a lot of experience locating these buyers and therefore getting your home sold faster and for more money than the average agent.
