Normally, marketing a vacant home in metro Edmonton has challenges. They are usually offered empty and the majority of home buyers simply lack the gift of visualization necessary to see beyond the space and see an empty house as a home in their minds.
Staging is sometimes a good idea. More on this later.
However, if you offer your vacant home for sale right now, you will enjoy the following advantages:
We will discount our fee for you
Our most popular full service FLAT fee home selling program is normally $5500. For a limited time, we will discount our fee by $1000. Vacant home selling clients pay ONLY $4500.
You will get more showings
Due to showing restrictions placed upon buyers and sellers by the government, it’s now necessary to for buyers and sellers to sign off on a series of disclosure and waiver forms. Most of these forms don’t apply to vacant homes. Also, if you offer your listing as ‘go and show’ REALTORS® will put your home listing to the top of the list. Therefore, vacant homes are getting shown to buyers far more often than occupied homes.
Buyers may compete to buy your listing
Because your vacant home is receiving more attention than seller occupied homes, you are much more likely to receive multiple offers. Having several buyers compete to purchase your listing puts you in the driver’s seat.
You may get more money
Because your home listing is available for quick possession, its much more attractive than seller occupied homes that can take months to move into. Because you are receiving more interest from the market and perhaps receiving multiple offers, your REALTOR® is in a great position to negotiate a great price for you and in some cases, this could be ABOVE your asking price.
And one last word about staging. We can introduce you to home stages and virtual home stagers. Read this link for more info To Stage or Not to Stage?
