1. Curb Appeal
Make sure your Lowell home makes a great first impression.
In my experience often overlooked in adding value to your Lowell home is curb appeal. The return on investment is huge when it comes to the smallest projects like painting the front door , adding new numbers , power washing and added some color with seasonal plants to the front porch or stairway.
Today’s buyers start the process online and the first picture of your Lowell house for sale will determine if they swipe next or continue for more information.
If they are interested online most home buyers will then do a drive by of the home to see first hand what type of condition the exterior of the home is in before even stepping foot inside the house.
2. De-clutter and depersonalize
The first thing to do is de-clutter and depersonalize according to industry experts de-cluttered and depersonalized homes can see a 3%-5% higher sales price.
Start packing it’s time to move!
Consider a small off site storage unit to temporarily store seasonal items.
Remove personal photo’s and replace with some art work.
3. Stage it
Staging you Lowell home does not have to be expensive.
A little sweat equity and a few hours can go a long way!

4. Warranty it
Adding a Home warranty as a buyer incentive can boost buyer confidence and peace of mind.
According to industry experts homes with a Home warranty can help you sell your home faster by an average of 11 days and for more money by an average of $2,341.00 more.
5. Inspect it
Consider having a Pre – Home inspection done on your Lowell home and make any repairs before they have to be negotiated during the transaction. By being pro-active you can save thousands of dollars in repair costs vs. home list price.
6. Price it strategically
Psychological pricing strategies ~ When pricing your home you should look at the three closest comps that are active and price it slightly below the two highest and above the two lowest.
Price Point Strategy ~ most buyers set up their search’s in blocks of $25,000 you want to be in the price point just below your highest comp. ex. $299,900 instead of $310,000 at the price point of $299,900 you will hit buyers searches in both the over/under $300,000 price point.
The magic number 9 ~ research has shown that home prices that end in “9” rather than “0” sell for an average of $2175.00 more and 3% faster
7. Price it right from the start.
Homes just listed for sale get the most buyer traffic, agent attention and offers in the first 2-4 weeks on the market with around the 10 -14 day mark being the sweet spot. The longer a house sits on the market the more buyers think that something is wrong with it . Once they start to think that something is wrong you loose your market leverage and start to attract buyers who are going o be looking for a discounted price
8. Maximum exposure
Traditional agents put the home in the MLS and then sit back for other agents to let it be fed to there buyer database and syndicated to online portals then they wait for the buyer to let them know if they want to go see it or not .
We have developed a strategic digital marketing campaign that guarantees maximum exposure. All of our listings are put on a aggressive digital blast to get more buyers and higher search rankings on your Lowell home for sale.
Often times traditional agents will ask me to market listings that have been on the market for a longer period of time for them.
9. Open House
Open House’s have become popular again . By holding a strategic open house and implementing an open house marketing campaign when the property first hits the market and when a price adjustment is made allows another chance at maximum market exposure.
10. Choose the right Agent
