Chicago Homes for sale- Listing Tip 1
As a Full time Realtor in the Chicago area, I feel that I can give you many different strategies on how to sell your home in the Chicago area for the most money in the least amount time.
If I know that you are planning to sell you Chicago home in the next 4 years, or even if you are not planning to sell your home,( a job transfer may pop up unexpectantly) I will advise you to take pictures of your home in all seasons.( especially if you live in the Chicago area) Spring has sprung in Chicago, summer is almost here and the flowers are in bloom.. If you blink and you don't smart smelling the roses or enjoy the beauty of the tulips, you will miss one of the most gorgeous seasons we have in the Chicago Northwest Suburbs. Use your digital camera and start clicking away. Can you guess that tulips are my favorite flower!
Let's say you want to put your home on the market in early March, one of the times most people ultimately first think about selling their home. Imagine what the photos of your home would look like at that time of year. If you live in Chicago or any of the nearby suburbs,, your pictures would either include dirty snow or ugly barren trees. (Sometimes not a pretty site and one that does not make a good first impression.)
In my opinion, it's the photos -- and good photos -- that gets a potential buyer in your home, and you only get one chance to make a first impression. A good picture is worth a 1000 words, a bad picture on the other hand may result in the consumer skipping over your home in their internet search and you not selling your home.
According the National Association of Realtors, nearly 80% of homebuyers start their home search on the Internet. Start Clickiing Away....
