Advice for Selling Your Vancouver Luxury Real Estate2017-05-29 08:40:46 Posted By Amir Hamzehali
Do you remember what drew you to your house? What was it about your Vancouver property that made you fall in love with it? You might start asking yourself these questions when you want to sell your home. Selling a luxury property isn’t like selling any old house. With a higher budget comes a completely different set of rules. If you’re thinking of selling your luxury property, I will help you present your home to ensure its marketability. In the meantime, here are some things to think about:
Down to the Last Detail
I don’t have to tell you that luxury homebuyers are interested in the details. What makes a house special isn’t only its lavish furnishings and state-of-the-art design. The small things matter just as much. Before you’re ready to put your house on the market, this might be a good time to look around your property to determine what could use some polish and TLC. Ask your housekeeping service to spend a little extra time making sure that every corner of the house is spotless. One small patch of yellow grass on your lawn is not exactly a big deal, but for luxury homebuyers who are seeking nothing less than perfect, this might be considered a red flag. Before you sell your home, be as thorough as possible.
A Customer Profile
For any successful marketing campaign, a customer profile is created to embody all the personality traits and characteristics of the next likely homeowner. Fortunately for you, you already have a good sense of what that customer profile looks like, because he or she probably looks a lot like you. If you moved into your home because you could see yourself raising a family there, that might be a good indication that the next owner will think the same thing. If your home was clearly designed for families, why dress it up as something else?
Creating a customer profile will help direct all your major decisions, from marketing materials to asking price. Fortunately, I’ll be there to help you with that.
There’s no doubt that your home and furnishings are of the highest quality. A professional stager will use your furniture to create an inviting space that appeals to most people. This might include removing carpets, rearranging furniture, adding floral accents to brighten up an area and setting up a tray of cold drinks by the pool. While it might be tempting to want to do this step yourself, professional staging has been proven to increase the value of a home.
