Maximize Your House Sale Earnings

by Rob Godar 03/15/2020

As a home seller, it is crucial to do whatever you can to optimize your house sale earnings. Lucky for you, we are here to help you promote your residence to the right groups of prospective buyers so you can increase the likelihood of a profitable home selling experience.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you maximize your home sale earnings.

1. Boost Your Home's Curb Appeal

You won't have to break your budget to upgrade your residence's curb appeal. In fact, completing simple home maintenance tasks like mowing the lawn and clearing dust and debris from exterior walkways may make it easy for buyers to fall in love with your residence.

Spend some time upgrading your residence's curb appeal – you'll be glad you did. Because if your home makes a positive first impression on buyers, there may be no shortage of interest in your house. As a result, buyers may compete for your home – something that could help you get the best price for your residence.

2. Remove Clutter

Clutter may make your home appear smaller than its true size. As such, you should do everything possible to eliminate clutter before you add your home to the real estate market.

Oftentimes, it helps to host a yard sale or list excess items online. In other instances, you may want to donate various items you no longer need to charity or give them to family members and friends.

For home sellers, it is essential to remove as much clutter as you can. Remember, if you eliminate clutter, you can showcase the true beauty of your residence's interior. This may help buyers see the full potential of your home, and ultimately, could lead to offers to purchase that match or exceed your expectations.

3. Hire a Real Estate Agent

If you are unsure about how to navigate different parts of the house selling process, there is no need to stress. By hiring a real estate agent, you can get the help you need to achieve the optimal home selling results.

A real estate agent is a house selling expert who will be able to provide you with personalized recommendations and suggestions. First, he or she will meet with you and learn about you and your home. A real estate agent next will craft a custom home selling strategy. And once a real estate agent puts your home selling plan into action, he or she will ensure you can enjoy a seamless home selling experience.

Furthermore, a real estate agent is available to assist you in any way possible. If you are unsure about how to price your residence, whether to accept an offer to purchase or have other home selling concerns, a real estate agent will help you address them immediately.

Ready to maximize your home sale earnings? Use the aforementioned tips, and you can bolster your chances of enjoying a success house selling experience.

Greetings everyone; those of you I know and those of you I’ve yet to meet!

My name is Rob Godar and I thank you for joining me on my journey as I share my long-time passion for Silicon Valley Real Estate.

My path to being in business for myself started at a young age. I am a proud Third Generation California native, growing-up in Sunnyvale. It was here that I began my entrepreneurial journey. I was a paperboy for both the Sunnyvale Daily Standard and the San Jose Mercury News. Up before the crack of dawn, and out collecting subscriptions long after the sun went down. I have fond memories of playing in the Metro Little League at Raynor Park. After graduating from Archbishop Mitty High School and attending both DeAnza and SJSU, I ran my own consumer electronics business for twenty years, learning much about business ownership and about the world of “sales”.

It was during this time of my life that I developed my passion for real estate. Initially, I became a homeowner, back when double digit interest rates were the norm. Talk about scary! I then began looking at real estate everywhere I went….on vacation, on my days off and even when out on dates with my now wife, Linda. We have been real estate investors for over 30 years and I’ve been an agent for over 12 years.
