Back to Real Estate News

Erath County homes1. Post pictures.

A majority of home buyers begin their search online and are more compelled to take a look at a home if there are pictures available.


2. Utilize YouTube.

Record a video about your home and neighborhood and describe what you and your family enjoy around the neighborhood.


3. Let your neighbors choose a home buyer.

Throw a get-together for your neighbors and prospective homebuyers. This will allow your neighbors to recommend individuals who are looking for homes.


4. Post your home’s listing on Facebook.

Facebook is one of the largest social media platforms, and posting your home on the website will help you sell your home much quicker.


5. Leave behind some of your home’s items.

Your home will stand out if it contains new appliances or a flat-screen TV.


6. Conduct an inspection before selling.

Listing a home with all inspections conducted beforehand and almost no fix-it list will likely attract more buyers.


7. Clean up the outside.

Take the time to paint the exterior of your home and clean up debris in order to make it more presentable.


8. Make it easy for others to see your home.

Agents and home buyers are more likely to seek out a home that will be easy for them to see.


9. Price your home realistically.

Price your home at least 10-15% less than what other homes in the area are going for.


10. Inform yourself on your competition.

Do some research and inform yourself on what other homes are selling for and what the conditions of these homes are.


11. Do away with personal belongings.

Homebuyers would rather see a neutral house so they are able to picture themselves in it.


12. Clean up the inside.

Clean and pack as much as possible for potential home buyers.
