5 Great Selling Tips for 2019!

by The Blake Mashburn Group

Kick of the new year by selling your home. What a great time to start a new! If you are looking to sell your Ventura home in 2019, follow these 5 tips for selling success!

 

1. Focus on the Millennials

Millennials will make up the largest group of homebuyers throughout the year. It makes sense to market to them since they make up such a large share. Knowing what millennials are looking for can help you sell your home. Location wise, millennials are moving to the suburbs but want to have amenities within walking distance. They prefer smaller homes with open floor plans. They also prefer green features and energy efficiency.

 

2. Remember the Baby Boomers

​Although it makes sense to market to millennials, you shouldn't forget about the baby boomers! This generation is looking to stay in their homes as they age. This means that homes that will fit their needs and remain accessible into the future are attractive. Master bedrooms, laundry, and other amenities located on the main floor are all selling points to focus on for this generation.

 

3. Be Smart about Your Smart Home Features

Smart features in a home are now expected. Do not limit your buyer pool by having smart features that only support a single platform. Make sure that the system is broadly compatible so home buyers can use the products they have already invested in.

 

4. Do a Pre-Inspection

Consider doing a pre-inspection. Although many home buyers will still want their own home inspection done, a pre-inspection allows you to find out issues early enough to make repairs if needed. It can also assure buyers that the home is move in ready.

 

5. Do a Drone Tour

Showcase your stunning property and landscaping with a drone tour of the home. Such a tour provides a better visual display of your home and its surrounding area, making your home stand apart from the competition. Talk to your real estate agent about hiring a professional (with required operating certificate) and add this to your home's marketing materials.
