Super Bowl of Real EstateThe Super Bowl and Real Estate, what do they have in common? Selling your home in New Milford, CT these days is like playing in the Super Bowl. The only way to look at those other homes on the market that are comparable to your home is… as your competition to crush! And how do you wipe out the competition? You get all the way to the end and win, you sell your home!

This is a buyers market, no doubt about it. The goal, your goal as a seller is to entice the buyer into your home and get that all important offer. Any offer is better than no offer. Any offer that comes in can be negotiated, and if you have priced it right you can hang on to that goal.

Clutter, gone. Repairs, done. Paint if necessary. Staging, no problem! Price it realistically, not based on what your current debt is, price it to sell. Not only do you have to get them in to see the house and give you an offer , but you have to get the appraiser to AGREE with the price you have agreed to sell it for.
