Selling a home in 2022 just got sweeter, but how you present your property will dictate just how well you do. Take a look into these top 10 tips to selling your home in 2022:
De-clutterIt's been polled time and again that home buyers do not want to see unnecessary items on display when touring a property or perusing photos.

- Invest in professional photography The most competitive home listings that net the most seller profit have one thing in common - they include professional photographs that showcase the home for sale in the best way possible. Now that many home buyers are limiting in-person showings and open houses, it's even more advantageous to include great photos.
Utilize virtual toursTake advantage of the many opportunities to provide virtual tours for potential home buyers. To learn more, please follow our Instagram Stories. We often tour listings virtually and share them with potential home buyers.
Transform a dedicated space for a home office or fitness areaMore people are working from home due to the pandemic. This means that buyers are more likely to need a dedicated space for both work and conducting business. Even those essential workers who do not work from home may be avoiding public spaces like the gym or fitness centers. You can accommodate these potential buyers by carving out a dedicated space.
Minimize physical contact with home inspectors, prospective buyers, appraisers, etc.Using all social distancing guidelines during the home selling and home buying process may be the most important of all tips to selling your home in 2022. Most tasks that need to be completed with home inspectors, prospective buyers, and appraisers can be done without contact. However, there will be times when in-person meetings are required. Minimize these contacts, when at all possible.
E-sign all documents and paperwork and consider virtual meetingsThere are many ways to conduct a virtual meeting in 2022. Before closing day, work with your experienced real estate professionals to e-sign documents and paperwork when possible.
Take an active role in promoting your listingYou'd be amazed at how easy it is to share your listing via word of mouth on social media. You never know whether someone in your circle of friends and acquaintances knows a prospective buyer.
Write a description that paints a vivid picture of your homeIn addition to professional photographs, a well-written description of your home is crucial. One tip to selling your home in 2022 is to paint a vivid picture of the home's best features.
Work closely with your real estate agent to price your home competitively for the existing marketIt's extremely important to price your home competitively from the start. Various considerations such as more recent sales, demand in the neighborhood, and the uniqueness of the property must be factored in.
