Attracting Multiple Offers For Your Denver Home

Attracting Multiple Offers For Your Denver Home

Unless you’ve been vacationing on the beach in St Maarten all summer (in which case I’m jealous!) it’s likely that you’ve heard the news: right now in many parts of  Centennial   Cherry Hills Village or  Greenwood Village  , we seem to be in what one can fairly consider a “seller’s market.” And if you’ve been thinking about selling, this perception could have caused dollar signs to start dancing through your head.

Priced and marketed correctly, if you are in fact considering listing your home, you actually could be in for some pleasant surprises. Multiple offers are making a comeback in many areas, and working with a skilled Denver real estate agent can provide you with the kind of informed guidance that attracts a spate of offers. For a Centennial  Cherry Hills Village or  Greenwood Village listing to create a multiple offer scenario, though, you usually need to observe some of the basics:

Jazz it up. Remember, “move-in ready” sells. Repairing minor flaws, repainting aging interior wall surfaces, deep cleaning or replacing worn carpets, power-washing the exterior, and putting the garden in trim all create enthusiastic buyers.  Having a home pre-inspected by a professional can help you during the negotiation process and put buyers at ease knowing the condition of the home up front. Staging a home can net a seller 6-8% more than a home that sits vacant.  Buyers lack imagination when looking at homes.  Staging is a critical move in selling your home.

Build anticipation
. Listing your Denver  house on a Tuesday with no showings until Friday can generate interest and draw a crowd. Several agents including myself promote listings as “Coming Soon” to create a buzz with buyers in the area.  Consider taking the family out of town for the weekend to give your agent extra freedom to show all weekend. From hosting a Broker’s Open to the big debut open house and other marketing, make sure that your listing is being properly promoted.  Pre-marketing and experience during this process is a key factor in selling your home for more money than other sellers in your area.

Rely on a skilled agent
. That agent can supply advice which only depth of experience brings — such as not getting emotional when the offers arrive.  High offers that carry a fistful of contingencies are not always the best offers – an experienced agent can help you differentiate the okay offers from the one that fills the bill.  Not having an experienced agent or skilled negotiator can cost you thousands of dollars during this process.

The longer a home sits on the market, the more its DOM (days on market) tally grows and a sense of “staleness” begins to grow, leaking valuable negotiating leverage. I’m here to answer your questions about real estate in the area — and to offer a marketing plan designed to get your Centennial   Cherry Hills Village or  Greenwood Village   listing sold this fall.
