This year has brought much uncertainty to the real estate industry. Because of social distancing, sellers are unsure if now is the right time to list their home. Although the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S is complicating real estate transactions, agents are finding new and innovative ways to close deals across the country. If you are selling your home this spring, here are a few tips that should help throughout the process. 

Post high quality listing photos.

Homebuyers are always looking to see high quality photographs in home listings. There are several steps a seller can take to potentially improve the quality of these photos. This includes removing clutter, making repairs, repainting walls, investing in upgrades, and proper staging. 

Price your home to sell.

Many sellers are pricing their homes below what they would otherwise list their homes for before the pandemic began. Although COVID-19 is affecting home values in the U.S, it is important to remember that the impacts are temporary. With this, it is likely a mistake to list your home far below you think your home would otherwise be worth. Also, pay attention to comparable prices right now and not just older sales. A seller can gain a better understanding of their market if they can gain an understanding of what similar homes are under contract for currently. 

Prepare for negotiations.

Because of COVID-19 and the restrictions put in place by government officials, buyers have more bargaining power than usual. With this, more negotiation may be needed to close on your home. Home sellers need to be ready for additional negotiations even after they get to contract. Because there is much uncertainty in the real estate market, you may need to be more flexible with your negotiations to close on the deal.
