Tips for Selling Your Home in Stillwater

Mar 12, 2023 | Stillwater Area, Tips for Selling, Twin Cities

Are you looking to sell your home in Stillwater? (Or anywhere in Minnesota or Wisconsin for that matter) Keep these key points in mind for a smooth process. Given the competitive nature of the Stillwater real estate market, it’s vital to make your home stand out to potential buyers. With over 20 years of experience as a trusted real estate agent, I can provide the guidance and expertise you need to optimize your sale.

Tip #1: Find the Right Real Estate Agent (That’s Me, *Wink *Wink)

To begin, finding the right real estate agent is crucial. Look for an agent experienced in selling homes in the Stillwater/St. Croix River Valley area who comprehends the local market. I can offer a comparative market analysis (CMA) to assist in appropriately pricing and effectively marketing your home. Feel free to contact me at any time!

Tip #2: Get Your Home Ready for Showings

Before showcasing your home, ensure it’s visitor-ready. Declutter, deep clean, and address necessary repairs. Enlisting a professional stager can enhance your home’s appeal and attract more buyers, ultimately leading to better offers.

Tip #3: Price Your Home Competitively

Proper pricing is vital for a successful sale. Overpricing can prolong the listing’s time on the market and deter potential buyers, while underpricing may lead to missed opportunities. As an experienced Stillwater real estate agent, I can help determine the appropriate price based on comparable homes and current market conditions.

Tip #4: Market Your Home Effectively

Effective marketing is essential to draw potential buyers. This involves listing your home on the MLS, major real estate websites, and showcasing high-quality photos and videos. Leveraging social media platforms can also maximize exposure. Rest assured, my comprehensive marketing plan encompasses online and offline strategies.

Tip #5: Be Flexible with Showings

Flexibility with showing times is crucial. Buyers may request viewings outside regular hours or on short notice. Maintain a clean and tidy home to accommodate potential buyers whenever they express interest.

By following these tips and entrusting your sale to an experienced real estate agent familiar with the Stillwater market—like myself—you can greatly enhance the likelihood of a successful transaction.
