Many homeowners in Metro DC are now realizing the positive direction in which the market is heading— and as a result, plan to sell their homes in 2022. Low mortgage rates are said to continue, as well as steady home value appreciation, and an increasing number of motivated homebuyers.
If you’re ready to sell in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Washington DC, or the surrounding communities this coming year, here are three home seller’s resolutions that can help bring you success in 2022.
Appeal to buyers online
As your real estate experts in the DC Metro area, The Estridge Group has a strategy for seeking out homebuyers in the first place they look— online. Listing photos are especially important to grabbing a buyer’s attention. Staying away from the online aspect of a listing or not putting enough effort behind digital details like listing copy, listing photos, and social media presence may just yield you less activity.
Don’t sell before you are ready
One of the biggest rules for listing your home is to not do so until you are ready. Have you listened to your agent’s advice for selling and pricing? Have you prepared your DC area home for sale, cleaning and removing clutter? Do you know where you will go when you sell? If you’ve tackled all of these, you can move forward with the selling process.
Think of your home as an investment
It is inevitable that you will have strong emotions connected to your Washington DC, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, or Northern Virginia home. After all, a home holds memories. But it is important as a home seller that you are able to think of you home as an investment. If your emotions get in the way, you could end up passing by a great offer or avoid negotiating with a serious homebuyer.
2022 will be a lucrative time to be both a homebuyer and home seller in Washington DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Winter was recently even named the best time to sell! Consider these new year’s resolutions as a local home seller and you just may be met with success (and a new home!) in the year ahead.
