For anyone who has listed their home on the local market, the equivalent of winning the lottery is a call from your agent telling you that multiple offers are on the way. It’s like hitting the jackpot — especially when the house draws top dollar.

Although the tactics that can trigger such a phone call vary by location and property type, a few overriding concepts put you far ahead in the competition to attract town’s motivated homebuyers—

• Build excitement:  Sherman Oaks homebuyers are like everyone else: whenever there’s a crowd, natural curiosity prompts us to find out what all the fuss is about. When you list your property a few days before beginning the showing process, you increase the odds of drawing a larger turnout on the first days of showings — or at your well-publicized open house. When homebuyers sense they are being shoehorned into a full schedule, they get the message: this one is hot! In a real estate environment where word-of-mouth can play a key role, it’s smart to actively set up buzz and good press around your property.

• Team with a pro: 
 Nothing prevents you from doing all the legwork yourself — if you have the spare time, that is (and don’t mind wading through reams of property data online, taking all the home buyer calls, working through their schedule changes, etc.). But when you team with a seasoned agent to perform the prep work for you, it frees your time to tend to more important tasks. Too, professionals have experience in screening potential area homebuyers and encouraging those who are best qualified — ultimately saving you time and expense down the road.

• Spruce it up:   
As important as any other factor is being able to focus your energy on maintaining your home in impeccable shape. The dollars spent here and there on maintenance can draw ten times as much at closing. Sherman Oaks homebuyers usually have no trouble paying a bit extra for a well-maintained house.

When homebuyers are presented with a property in absolutely excellent shape, it communicates long-term value — as well as a solid, trouble-free investment!
