Luxury residential homes are valuable properties, and you certainly want to get as much as you can for yours. If you're moving and need to sell a luxury residential home, use these strategies to get as much as you can for the house.
List Your Home Early in the Buying Season
While people purchase homes year-round, the real estate market has a lull during winter and peaks during summer. This means the market ramps up sometime in the spring, usually as the weather warms and snow melts. It's easier to showcase homes without snow in the way or continual rain discouraging people from viewing homes.
In order to get as much attention as you can for your home, list it earlier in the spring or even during late winter. Even if you don't get a lot of interest immediately, listing at this time of year will ensure yours is one of the first -- if not the first -- luxury residential homes on the market. With a limited supply, everyone who looks for a home as the market picks up will check yours out.
The more people who check out your home, the more likely you are to get an offer -- and hopefully multiple offers. If you can create a bidding war between multiple buyers because there's not much else available on the market, you could see a sale price that's exactly what you're asking or even higher.
Invest in Professional Real Estate Photographs
Professional real estate photographs are important when selling any type of home because most people begin their home search by looking at online listings. Photographs are especially important if you have a luxury residential home to sell because these homes have lots of features to showcase.
To make sure your home looks as good as possible in online listings, pay a photographer to take professional photos of both the exterior and interior. Make sure the person is experienced specifically with real estate photography and knows how to photograph rooms with different lighting conditions.
Contact the Local Newspaper
If your luxury residential home is one of the nicest houses currently on the market in your area, contact the local newspaper to see if they'll highlight your home. Most newspapers have a real estate section in the Sunday paper, and being showcased there can bring a lot of exposure to your home. That exposure can generate leads for potential offers after the paper is issued.
