4 Ways to Increase The Number of Offers on Your Home

Gregg Fletcher


So you want to sell your house, but how will you get the best deal for it? Finding a real estate agent to assist you in selling your home is your best option since the real estate market is tricky and challenging to navigate on your own. Knowing what to do and who to contact for the process will help you receive the offers you want. These are suggestions for getting multiple offers on your house once you have decided to sell.

1. Understand your local market

Even if this is your second or third time selling a home, the first thing to understand about the process is the state of the real estate market. The market can be one of three things; seller’s, buyer’s, or a balanced market. If you are selling your home, it is ideal if the market favors sellers or is balanced. A seller's market will lead to increased offers on your house because there are a limited number of homes for sale and a surplus of buyers battling for those homes.

Once you understand your local market, you can advertise your home appropriately and increase the number of offers you receive. Utilize the National Association of Realtors' website to look up regional statistics and identify which market your community is in. You or your real estate agent can gather the needed research. There is no guarantee that you will receive the desired number of offers, even if your market is experiencing a hot seller’s market. It takes more than just being in the right market to get multiple offers on your home.

2. Find a top agent

Getting ready to put your house on the market requires careful planning. Don’t be shy about hiring professionals to help. Making a home more appealing to potential buyers and getting it ready to go on the market take a lot of work. Hiring the right agent will alleviate the pressure of the entire situation. Ideally, you will research and hire the best agent in the field, someone who tends to outsell others.

The agent you hire should have top-notch marketing skills, be able to help you accurately price your home, schedule the best showings, and generate lots of exposure. Your agent should be able to put together the best strategy to sell your home for the best possible price. Your realtor has the power to spark a bidding war for your house in a seller's market. Your objective is simple, to ascertain if your agent has a sizable network of business contacts and market knowledge.

3. Have a pre-listing inspection done and share the results

Anyone who is considering buying your home is going to have an inspection done to be sure they are investing in a home worthy of its stated value. Have a pre-listing inspection done to help entice more offers, use it to address any issues discovered, and share the report and the repairs you made with potential buyers.

Sincerity always goes a long way and will make potential buyers feel more at ease. It also gives them less to do if they purchase your home, which can save them time and trouble in the long run. You might have an advantage in negotiations with potential buyers and their agents if you have a pre-listing inspection. Once more, your agent will have the best resources to find a knowledgeable home inspector.

4. Make your home presentable

Whether you are in a seller’s market or a buyer’s market, listing a home in top shape will lead to top offers. Making quick home improvements before you list your house is often inexpensive but can yield a higher return on your home. Freshen up the paint on both the inside and outside of your home, replace any old fixtures, refinish or replace the flooring, declutter your home, and spruce up your landscaping to add curb appeal.

Ideally, you should focus on making the outside of your home just as appealing as the inside. You will persuade prospective buyers and show them that the current homeowners are concerned about more than just the inside of your home because you also take care of the surrounding property. Although having a nice interior is good, many people consider a house's exterior. They frequently ignore homes that appear dilapidated from the outside, even if there are renovations on the interior. These little things will go a long way in generating offers when you list your home. They will make your home stand out compared to the other houses on the market.

Although it is not required, you can renovate your home to make it more marketable. If you need ideas on what to do to help make your home presentable, HGTV has a list of ideas for curb appeal.
