Seller’s Guide


Seller’s Guide

  • New York City is indeed a seller’s market. With a consistently high demand from buyers looking to take a bite out of the Big Apple, the real estate market in NYC is consistently competitive. With some of the most savvy, hard-working, and knowledgeable agents on your side, The Home Team NYC will expediently connect you with the ideal buyer and an optimal purchase price. Being a homeowner in Manhattan is a highly-coveted position, and we know how valuable your home is to you and to prospective buyers. We work hard to maximize your property’s exposure and to present it in its very best light.
  • In order to accurately maximize the value of your home, there are a few things you should do:
    • Ask someone with a keen eye for details to do a quick walk-through of your home and tell you the good and bad points that stand out. An objective perspective will be an excellent starting point from which to prioritize improvements and adjustments.
    • Remember that nothing is more important than a first impression. When you evaluate and prepare your home to be shown to prospective buyers, consider what they will see first, from the outside entrance to the front door.
      Clean up the sidewalk and entranceway, remove clutter from foyers and front yards, and clearly mark the address on the door.
    • When preparing the inside of the apartment, consider the mindset of a potential buyer. You want to convey a clean, comfortable, homey feel. Don’t leave everything up to the imagination, but don’t create an environment that is too over-the-top either. A clean, bright, pleasant home atmosphere is optimal.
      Try to convey an ambience that is familiar and inviting to viewers.
    • Clean up the clutter. Maximize the light flow in your home by cleaning windows, walls, and floors, and perhaps touching up the paint and carpets. Be ready to make some minor investments that can add significant value to your home.
    • Consider factors such as lighting, sound, and ambience. Make sure all light fixtures and appliances are in good condition, minimize loud noises, and give the apartment a sense of space. Fill the apt with a great scent like fresh spring or Mom’s cooking, that will carry your visitor away from the aroma of the hectic NYC streets right into the serene, comfy living room they’ve been visualizing.
    • Try to bring out the appeal of each room based on its character. Pay close attention to bathrooms and kitchens, as these are known to be deciding factors for many buyers. Don’t slack on the polishing and shining of appliances and fixtures. In the bedrooms, try to emphasize an overall feeling of cleanliness, comfort, and adaptability by arranging items and furniture accordingly.
    • Don’t overdo it. Place yourself in the mind of a buyer and invest in repairs and adjustments that really matter. Your agent will guide you in this process, but trust your intuition as well.
    • Take straight, clear, complimentary pictures of every room in your home as most of today’s buyers utilize the descriptive photos on the Internet to narrow their choices. Our website is designed to make your home look its absolute best and to point out its most attractive features.
    • Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. With your home at its best, and our most talented agents on your side, your home will sell itself.
