How to Maximize Your Home’s Sale Price When Selling in LA

When you sell your home in LA, you want to make sure you get the best possible price. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to ensure that your home sells for top dollar. With a little knowledge, it’s easy, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s almost impossible to sell it quickly for what it’s worth.

When selling in Los Angeles, here are a few tips on how to maximize your home’s sale price.

What Type of Buyer Is Looking for Homes in Los Angeles? 

As the biggest city in California, it’s no wonder Los Angeles is a hot spot for homebuyers. LA has it all, whether you’re looking for a luxury estate or a cozy bungalow. But who exactly is buying homes here? Here’s a look at some of the most common types of buyers in LA.

The first type is real-estate companies. For example, the real-estate team at FlipSplit manages Los Angeles real estate transactions smoothly and successfully by helping homeowners looking for a hassle-free way to sell their homes. Since selling a house in Northern California is neither easy nor straightforward, their catchy tagline – we buy houses in Los Angeles – works like a charm. Selling is challenging because prospective buyers must review all the inspection reports and disclosures before making a bid. The most stressful thing about these regulations is that sellers don’t know if their house will sell at the price they want or at the time they need.

The second group is made up of young professionals. They’re usually in their late twenties or early thirties and they want a starter home that they can customize. They like trendy neighborhoods like Silver Lake or Venice Beach.

The third type is growing families. They’re usually in their thirties or forties and looking for a house that can accommodate their expanding family. They’re often drawn to Laurel Canyon or Sherman Oaks.

Last, there are the empty nesters. They’re usually in their fifties or sixties and looking for a smaller home that’s easy to maintain. Their favorite neighborhoods are Beverly Hills and Bel Air.

What’s the Best Way to Prepare Your Home for Sale? 

Once you’ve got a buyer in mind, start preparing your house for sale. Repairs and renovations can increase your home’s value and make it more desirable for buyers. However, you should choose your projects wisely. Focus on things that will have the biggest impact on the value of your home.

If, for example, you’re selling a starter home, focus on upgrades like painting the walls or improving the curb appeal. However, if you’re selling a family home, upgrade the bathrooms or kitchen.

After you’ve fixed up your house, stage it. When you set up your home with this marketing technique, arrange your furniture in a way that is both functional and pleasing to the eye. Also, pick warm and inviting colors and textures. As a final step, remove personal belongings, such as family photos and travel memorabilia. 

How Can You Help Your Home Sell for Top Dollar? 

After you’ve prepared your house for sale, here are a few things you can do to ensure that it sells for top dollar: 

  1. Don’t underprice your home. Avoid the temptation to go below market value to win a quick sale. Talk to a real estate agent or appraiser to find the right price for your house.
  2. Market it right. You should list it on MLS and use other marketing channels to reach buyers.
  3. Keep showing times flexible. Make your home available to potential buyers at times that are convenient for them.
  4. Be willing to negotiate. This means being willing to accept a lower offer if it’s in your best interest.

Try These Simple Guidelines

Selling your home in Los Angeles doesn’t have to be an arduous process. You can maximize the sale price of your home and sell it as quickly as possible with these tips.
