  • Your marketing plan should include a pricing strategy before it develops a Social Stigmatism which causes buyers to question  "What is wrong with that home?"

Hire a Professional
Real Estate Marketing Company
 
  • Attempting to sell your home as For Sale By Owner is outdated, ineffective, and will result in selling your home for less. Hiring professional agents and using their marketing resources will save you money and you will get an average of $65,000 more when you sell your home. All of the data is here.
  • Require multi-marketing approach and ask who is responsible to complete each task. Teams have different people to complete different tasks or it is out-sourced. Build Idaho does everything in house!
  • Demand a great client experience from start to close. Asking this much service from a single person may be more than they can reasonably offer

TIP
Think Local. Host a private neighborhood showing. Get your neighbors to advertise your home too.

4 things you can do to increase value...

What you have read in the past is wrong about how to increase the value.   Most things you do to a house DO NOT increase the value more than the cost. If you are like me you want to get a return on your cost.  These seller tips have massive returns when selling your home.

#1 - New Front Door -

This is the best improvement item on the list.  A steel door.  You can get a new steel door for under $500.  Paint it and your home value just went up to $1k - $5k. Already have a nice front door.  Paint it.  $50 and you just made hundreds. 

#2 - Paint Interior Walls -

We recommend a professional.  For $3k -$5k for most homes, you can increase the value $6k - $12k with nice paint.  The contractor will fix all the drywall areas as well.  

#3 - Pre-Inspection -

Hire a professional inspector to pre-inspect your house.  Fix all the little honey-do items they find.  This can save you thousands in hidden landmines.  Also, a buyer could pay 1-2% more money for a repaired house. 

#4 - New Carpet -

Clean the carpets professionally or get new carpets.   Be careful.  There are builder grade carpets to purchase.  Most people get the wrong carpet and lose money.  With the right carpet, you will get a great return.

Bonus Tip - The agent you choose - Price is a function of supply and demand.  The right agent can increase demand.  The wrong agent or 'For Sale by Owner' can decrease demand.  For example, our team spends $15k a month on marketing.  This isn't to brag it is just to highlight the contrast to the industry average less than $200 a month.  Your home will ultimately sell for what someone is willing to pay.  So, if 100 people see it than you get the most money someone is willing to pay out of the 100 people.  If your home is seen by 10,000 then you get the most money someone is willing to pay out of the 10,000.  Makes sense right?  

Now imagine you hire the right team and they can get your home in front of highly qualified buyers in Boise, Eagle, Star, Nampa looking to relocate to our area after selling their home for $1.5 million.  Compare that the traditional marketing a sign in the yard and put it on the local MLS.

It all starts with an open and honest discussion
We need to understand your situation. Why are you selling now and what are you going to do after you sell? What is included with the house? How much do you owe still

What is important you? Do you need to sell fast or think you need a specific price.
