Tips to get your Arkansas home sold

1. Price your home competitively.

This is the most important step. Pricing your home can make or break the time it spends on the market and the amount you earn from the sale. Nothing can kill the home sale like an overpriced, inflated number. Part of your Clever Partner Agent’s service includes a competitive market analysis (CMA) that will help you understand the true value of your home and price it well.

2. Stay current with technology.

In today’s climate, almost everything is done online. Shopping for homes is no exception. Have professional photos of your home taken and make sure the listing is well-written and attractive.

3. Perform small repairs.

Replacing the carpets, adding new paint, and landscaping the yard make the home feel new, without breaking the bank. Buyers will get to see a home without your personal imprint on it.

4. Have a flexible schedule.

Accommodating house tours, last minute inquiries, or chance drop ins can help your home sell faster. The more people you get into your home the better when it comes to getting that bad boy sold.

5. Work with a professional.

An experienced realtor will steer the ship, guiding you through the entire home selling process. A Partner Agent helps during each facet of your home sale, including listing, marketing, touring, and closing.
