Hot Tips For Selling Your Santa Fe Home This Spring!


Yes, spring has arrived in Santa Fe NM. Along with our Spring winds come the buyers. But with recent shifts in real estate financing, this year’s spring housing market may be different from the frenzy of the past several years. However, due to low inventory, you may be blessed with competitive offers. In order to sell your house quickly, without hassles, and for the most money, be sure to follow these four simple tips:

1. Make Sure You Give Buyers Access

One of the biggest mistakes you can make as a seller is limiting the days and times when buyers have access to view your home. In any market, if you want to maximize the sale of your house, you can’t limit potential buyers’ access to view it. If it’s not accessible, it could cost you by sitting on the market longer and ultimately selling for a lower price. In Santa Fe, the majority of our market is still a seller market due to low inventory!

2. Make Your Home Look as Good as Possible on the Inside

For anything to sell, especially your home, it must look inviting. Your real estate agent can give you expert advice on ideal staging for your home. Even updating a room with fresh paint, steam cleaning carpets, or removing clutter from the garage can make a big impact. Now, remember to ask me about we can help with staging referrals or even virtual staging.

3. First Impressions Matter

The old saying “you never get a second chance to make a first impression” matters when selling your house. Often, the first impression a buyer gets is what they see as they walk up to the front door. Putting in the work in on the exterior of your home is just as important as what you stage inside. Freshen up your landscaping to improve your home’s curb appeal so you can make an impact with potential buyers. Again, first impression is key and this is why we use ONLY professional photography with floor plans and virtual and matterport tours at no additional cost to you. You home is seen first online with a virtual tour and FIRST impressions are critical!

4. Price It Right

This is probably the most important aspect of selling your home in today’s real estate market. If a house is priced competitively, it’s going to sell. Period. To do this, you have to know what’s happening with home prices in your area and understand the factors that are affecting the market right now. A comparative market analysis is what we provide to educate you on not only your home's market value and what is happening in your neighborhood and area.

Bottom Line

Everyone selling their home wants three things: to sell it for the most money they can, to do it in a certain amount of time, and to do all of that with the fewest hassles. One of the ways often not considered is communication. Without out, nothing can happen to YOUR advantage. To accomplish these goals, let’s connect so you can understand the steps you need to take to sell your home this spring. Thank you for reading!
