Perhaps you’ve decided it’s time to test the market and see what kind of return you can command for your luxury property. You’ve made a few upgrades and you know that the market favors sellers right now, but what else can you do to ensure that you get a good return when you sell your home? Most people benefit greatly from partnering with an experienced luxury real estate agent who can help them with their sale. Here are a few of the top reasons why you shouldn’t sell luxury property without partnering with a realtor who specializes in these types of homes.

1. They can help you determine how to price your home

Pricing homes for sale in Lakeway is both an art and a science. There are several factors to consider, including the state of the local market and the specific neighborhood where your home is located. Obviously, you never want to price a home too low and risk walking away with less money after you sell. You also don’t want to price your home too high. Doing so can lead to longer market stays and decreased buyer interest. Even if your home goes under contract for a higher price, the deal could fall apart if your home can’t appraise for a fair market price. When you work with a luxury realtor, you will have help determining where to price your home for a faster sale that nets you a significant profit.

2. They are well-connected with other luxury realtors

Once a realtor works in one area for an extended amount of time, they begin to build connections and relationships with other realtors in the area. They will often let other realtors know before they list a home in case they are working with any buyers who might be interested in seeing the home. An experienced luxury realtor is likely connected with other luxury realtors who could be assisting qualified buyers as they search for luxury homes in the area. They can help you spread the word about your home before it hits the official market, and you may not have to wait long before you are fielding offers from potential buyers.

3. They can help you with marketing

It’s possible that you reach multiple potential buyers simply from leveraging your realtor’s connections, but you may also need to consider other tactics on how to get the word out about your home’s availability. Your realtor knows how to effectively market a home and they can share their expert strategies with you. Perhaps your realtor knows how to take a video tour of your home that you can include with your listing online. Maybe your realtor has found success using social media to generate greater interest in home listings. Your realtor can also help you create your home’s online listing. They have written plenty of home write-ups to include with online listings and they know how to talk about a home in a way that describes its top features and amenities. They can also recommend a professional photographer who specializes in taking pictures of luxury homes. This will ensure that you get more clicks, likes, comments, and shares when you post about your home’s availability online.

4. They can help you stage your home

Your home’s online presence is important. You probably won’t schedule many showings without quality pictures and a well-written description. That said, it’s what happens at the in-person showing that motivates a potential buyer to make an offer. You can prepare for these in-person showings by thinking critically about how you’ll prepare your home to show to the best of its abilities. Start by cutting your grass and pulling any weeds from your flower bed. Curb appeal makes a huge difference and leaves an initial impression on the buyer from the moment they arrive at your home. Work inside to clear any clutter and fully sanitize each space. Make sure your furniture is far enough away from the wall that guests can easily walk from place to place. Consider setting the dining room table or the kitchen bar with plates and silverware so that guests can imagine what it might be like to eat a meal or serve guests. You can even put out a bowl of fresh fruit or a potted plant to bring some extra color or outdoor appeal into the space.

5. They can help you prepare for closing

Once you agree to a deal to sell your home, you’ll have several weeks to prepare for closing. This is a busy time for both the buyer and the seller, and you’ll have several things you need to take care of before you can sign the contract and receive a check. Your realtor will walk you through each step of the process and ensure that you don’t miss any important details. They will communicate with you frequently to ask for your specific instructions about how you want certain lines and clauses in the contract to read. They will read the entire contract ahead of time so that you fully understand what you are agreeing to do when you sign each page. You won’t have to worry if there’s something that you don’t understand, because they can quickly answer any questions that you have.
