Selling your home can be stressful, particularly when there appears to be an abundance of property for sale in Napa. Standing out amongst the competition may seem difficult; however, here are a few tips to help your Napa, CA, real estate get noticed.
The Right Realtor® Makes All the Difference
The real estate market often works much like other referral based businesses. Homebuyers tend to turn to trusted Realtors® in search of the perfect new property. Choosing the right Realtor® to list your property is vital since you will want to take advantage of the Realtor’s personal network of buyers and other Realtors within their community. Not only will the right Realtor® have a large network, they will also have intimate knowledge of the surrounding areas. Connie and Jamie, for example, were born and raised in the Napa area, providing them with intimate knowledge of the neighborhoods, and a large pool of local buyers.
Judging a House by its Curb Appeal
Ensuring a great first impression is vital when it comes to property for sale in Napa. When the housing market is crowded, your home’s curb appeal can be the difference between a quick sale or sitting on the listing pages. Improving the curb appeal of your Napa CA real estate doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money. Here are a few simple ways to improve your home’s curb appeal.
- Keep lawns and gardens neat and tidy.
- Remove all yard clutter, like garden tools or play toys.
- Power wash exterior surfaces, such as drives, walk ways and the siding.
- Stage lawn ornaments and patio furniture for a welcoming feeling.
Highlight the Property’s Uniqueness
When the market is full of other homes for sale, particularly within the same neighborhood, it is vital that you highlight your home’s uniqueness. Figure out what sets it apart from the other homes on the block and make sure these features are prominent on the listing. Some items of interest include:
- Large backyards
- Fenced yard
- New flooring or appliances
- Outdoor living spaces
- Modern amenities
Often, homebuyers will drive through a potential neighborhood when viewing other properties in the area, and may request a viewing of your home on short notice. Be open and flexible about when your home is available for viewing so you do not miss a possible sale.
A crowded market doesn’t have to mean that your home will sit for sale for an extended time. Connie and Jamie have dedicated themselves to helping Napa area home sellers reach potential buyers. For more information, or to request a consultation, please contact Connie and Jamie today!
