When you sell, you’ll probably want to get the best possible price for your property. Who wouldn’t? Unfortunately, there are many ways to inadvertently leave money on the table – sometimes thousands of dollars. To avoid this possibility, utilize the 4 P’s to maximize your selling price!
Do all you can ahead of listing your home to ensure that it looks it’s absolute best. This includes decluttering, minor or major home improvements, and cleaning. Home staging is a fantastic way to elevate your property even further with the help of someone who knows exactly what a buyer wants to see. Effectively staged homes have been known to sell for up to 5 % more than comparable unstaged properties!
Setting the price just right is key. If you set your price too low, you will attract only deal-hunters and possibly get less than your home is actually worth. If you set your price too high, you could discourage buyers that may have made a good offer. Pricing a property involves a lot of research and knowledge of the current market. Hire a great realtor and trust their price recommendation!

Once an offer comes in, there may be an opportunity to negotiate with the buyer to maximize the final price you get. This requires deep knowledge of the local market as well as street-smart negotiation skills. If done effectively, these negotiations can help put more money in your pocket.
