Why List your Rockland County Home with Us?
When it comes to listing your home, you have two goals: To sell your home quickly and get the best price. We have been selling Hudson Valley homes for 85 years, and we are experts at matching homes to prospective buyers.
Each house is unique and needs an individual marketing plan. Choosing the right price so your home will sell is very important. Overpricing a house will mean it will take longer to sell. Underpricing may give you a quicker sale but may also give the impression that there is something wrong with it. Lydecker Realty agents will show you what homes in your neighborhood are selling for and will help you choose the best competitive listing price at this moment. We listen to you and give you our advice on how to price your home, based on its condition, knowledge of the area, and the prices of comparable listings.
Once the listing price is settled we will talk about the various ways to market your home. Curb appeal is very important. A buyer’s first view of your home is from the outside, whether it is in a picture or they are physically in front of it. Keeping shrubs trimmed, lawn in its best condition, sidewalks, pathways in good repair, and house detailing done, all contributes to the desire to see more. Sometimes it takes a professional to point out these things as we tend to get used to our own houses, becoming blind to certain defects that can impact a sale.
Want to make upgrades? Don’t make the mistake of doing work to improve your home before talking with us. We will advise you on how best to present your home to a buyer, and no doubt can save you money. Knowing what needs to be done to sell the house is our job. For instance, painting can freshen up a room — but color matters. Keep it neutral! Painting is usually an economical solution when it comes to home presentation.
Maybe we will suggest staging your home. Sometimes rooms are overcrowded with furniture. Perhaps the furniture is too large for the room and should be replaced with new, smaller pieces which make the room more spacious . That is part of presentation. Often, the cost of replacing things that are outdated, old or worn with new ones can make for a much quicker sale and a higher price. De-cluttering rooms, taking down family photos, straightening up bookshelves, and washing windows are small jobs that can make a difference in how a house appears to a buyer, at little cost.
We will work for you from start to finish. Just as we hold the record for selling the highest priced home in Rockland County in the past 10 years, we take pride in assisting anyone with the sale of their home, whether it be a cottage or a mansion! Getting you top dollar for your home is what we strive to do.
Nothing says more about us than our many friends who have listed and sold their homes with us through the years. Give us a call, or stop in and see us in Nyack.
