Priming Your North Shore Home for a Quick Sale in 2016

As much as 2016 is shaping up to be a great year for North Shore homebuyers, there are many ways home sellers can benefit too! There is talk of mortgage rates headed higher as we move forward into the new year and with a lower number of homes on the market, home sellers can put their property in the spotlight.

If you've been thinking about selling your home this spring, keep in mind the following ways you can prime your Winnetka, Glencoe, Deerfield, Highland Park or Northbrook area home for a quick sale:

Price your home correctly 
Working with an experienced North Shore real estate agent is the best way to accurately price your home for the current market. I will work with you to drive as much traffic as possible to your property, based on comparable homes and market value. This is one of the major factors in determining the success of a home sale, so it is best to get it right from the beginning.

Stage your home
Home staging presents your North Shore property in the best possible light and allows buyers to visualize themselves living inside. Simple projects like giving rooms a fresh coat of paint, cleaning windows to allow in more light, editing furniture down to allow for an easy flow throughout the house and eliminating clutter can do wonders in the eyes of buyers touring your home for the first time.

Time your home sale correctly
The beginning of the new year sets the tone for the spring real estate market when many North Shore homeowners will list their properties. Always consult your North Shore real estate expert for tips on the best time to list, not just in terms of spring and summer, but even the best day for your property to hit the market.

Cater to your target market
2016 is expected to be a popular year for Millennials buying homes on Chicago's North Shore and homeowners can cater their marketing to this demographic. Millennials tend to desire open floor plans, updated kitchens and outdoor space, so be sure to highlight these features if your home has them.

Do not hesitate to contact me for more information on preparing your Winnetka, Glencoe, Deerfield, Northbrook or Highland Park area home to sell this year! I look forward to hearing from you!
