Sell Your West Knoxville Home: 3 Things That Make Your Listing Stand Out

house_stand-out_-croppedIn a buyer’s market, the competition for people selling their West Knoxville home is tough. As a person selling their West Knoxville home, you want to make you home stand out from the rest of the West Knoxville homes for sale. With so many buyers looking at listings before they actually visit the home, the way your home is photographed, marketed, and the description of you can make all the difference to a buyer. Here a few ways to ensure that your listing stands out from the rest:

Pick an agent who will dedicate the time and energy to marketing your West Knoxville home. A good agent can play a crucial role in successfully marketing your home. Ask to see how the agent has marketed other listings in the past. If you’re not pleased with how the agent has marketed previous properties, consider finding an agent who will be able to market your West Knoxville home in the way you are looking for.

A well photographed listing is much more likely viewed than one that is not. Take the time cleaning and organizing your home so that it is market ready. Also, consider using a home stager.  According to the National Association of Realtors, having your home staged can increase you asking price by 1% to 3%, which would increase your return anywhere from 8% to 10%.

Have a well written description of the home. While photographs can help a buyer see what your home is like, a well written description can be what gets them to view the home. Work with your agent to highlight what aspects they may not be seeing from the pictures. Don’t forget to be specific. Saying you have a “nice kitchen” isn’t as impressive is saying you have “a recently upgraded kitchen with stainless steel appliances, new granite cabinets, and tile backsplash.”
