Even though Sherman Oaks property prices continue to recover, the current market can still present challenges. No one understands this better than homeowners who are re-listing this year. For some of them, surrounding seas of “For Sale” signs created a less-than-appealing neighborhood setting. Others drew buyers who weren’t able to secure financing in the uncertain mortgage environment. Whatever the reason, it can be disheartening for anyone who has to re-list their property.

Once you undertake a repeat attempt to sell your Sherman Oaks home, you want to be certain the job gets done right. A key part of that will be ensuring successful showings. It’s estimated that well-staged homes sell as much as 50% faster than those not “dressed for sale.”

Most buyers begin their search online, so take a look at its online marketing. A buyer who dismisses your property outright without a visit means one less chance to close a sale. Be sure you show multiple photos that show the property in the best possible light. If that’s not the case, and professional photography might provide the solution.

Give the property another thorough cleaning. You cleaned your home for your first open house, but now that time has passed, your house certainly needs deep cleaning again. In particular focus on the two areas that get messiest fastest: bathrooms and kitchen rooms buyers look at first.

Take a look at timing: specifically, the times you choose to show your home. Try holding an open house between 3-5pm. This will make your home one of the last that prospects view. If they are still looking at day’s end, chances are they are serious about buying a Sherman Oaks. This slot also helps avoid viewing conflicts with other homes.

Sure, it’s disappointing any time a home doesn’t sell immediately, but that needn’t mean it won’t succeed the second time around. In most parts of the country, real estate has been trending upwards  and more buyers are entering the market. You’re only looking for that one person who appreciates your Sherman Oaks home.
