Selling a Luxury Home in 2016? How to Prepare

If you are planning to sell your Denver area luxury home in 2016, (or a luxury home anywhere in the country, for that matter) there are a few things to keep in mind. Believe it or not, there are a few things you might want to do differently in order to sell your high-value property.

Pick the Right Price

You want to get a fair price for your home, so it is important that you price it correctly from the moment it goes on the market. Many people opt to choose the real estate agent who claims that he or she will be able to get the highest price, but this is not the best choice. Luxury real estate should be priced aggressively from the start if you really want or need to sell the property. If you have more time to work with, then you can price your home a little more conservatively. Remember that most luxury homes remain on the market longer than their lower-priced counterparts do, and choosing the right price can help you sell faster.

Learn How the Agent Will Market Your Home

As you are getting ready to put your Denver luxury home on the market, find out how your real estate agent intends to advertise it. This individual or company should have responsive website, hopefully with a blog, and he or she should also be active on social media. In short, you want to avoid the “Post-and-Pray” realtor who will simply list your home and forget about it until it sells. You need someone who will work hard to sell your home for you by using all of the tools and resources available.

Sell at the Right Time

Unless you absolutely need to sell your luxury home right this second, there are a few tips and tricks for making sure that you’re selling your home at the right time. Consider this: if you had an oceanfront home in Florida, would you try to sell it during hurricane season? Probably not. In Denver, home sales seem to slack off significantly during the colder winter months. Although there is nothing wrong with continuing to market your home through the winter in Denver, putting it on the market before or after often works out better since more people are willing to get out for showings.

Display the Luxury Lifestyle

Luxury homes are considered “luxurious” for a reason, and that reason is not always about size. In fact, some luxury homes have as few as three bedrooms and two baths; the “luxury” part is about the architecture, design, technology and appliances. Make sure that you make the most of these facets of the home, and stage it with this purpose in mind. After all, you want people to see that the home you are selling is truly luxurious. Your real estate agent can give you some outstanding pointers based on the layout and style of your home, too.

If you will sell your Denver luxury home in 2016, make sure you prepare yourself by using these tips. In most cases, it’s all about choosing the right real estate agent to help you list, stage, and sell your home according to current market standards.
