5 Tips to Sell Your Spokane Home for Over Asking Price
1. Price your home slightly below the market value, pricing 5-10% below market will create a lot of buzz around your home and likely a multiple offer scenario, right now the market is pretty tight, pricing your home just slightly under is enough to get to that coveted multiple offer round.
2. Build buzz by creating a coming soon campaign- utilize social networks, groups, friends and family to share your listing. Building buzz early helps to build exposure for your listing and adds to the scarcity factor (deal mindset).
3. Boost your curb appeal- Spruce up the front of your home, give it some serious curb appeal focus your efforts in the front for a good first impression. A little landscaping bark and well placed flowers go a long ways.
4. Make repairs- focus any repairs in your home that will allow for opening up financing options, homes that allow for more financing types sell faster and for more money. Why? You have a larger pool of potential buyers. Bear in mind that Realtors use this as a search criterion for their clients, so if your home doesn't pass due to chipping paint, exposed wiring, missing appliances... you are missing out on this pool of buyers.
5. Stage it- buyers can be picky, they may not like your style, and it is likely that they would not say anything so as not to offend you. It is best to let a professional stage your home, they are experts in making areas look larger and more attractive to a wider audience. Chances are you are influenced by your own design ideas, put your ego aside and let the experts handle the design.

Deep Sixing The Quest to DownsizingFinally, our family of five is livi
"I was interested in purchasing an out-of-state foreclosure I found online. I sent an email inquiry to EvoReal. I was contacted by agent Laura Beckman. Laura scouted out the property for me right away. The foreclosure property I was interested in was in need a new roof and the previous owners did some serious interior damage on their way out the door.
Laura hit the ground running again. By the next day I had a list of alternate properties to go over. I selected a few of the properties. With me being out of state, Laura previewed the homes for me, sent me pictures and videos, comps and the following day I was able to make an offer long distance. I was able to sign documents via an online service. This process was made practically seamless compared to my last few home purchases. I feel very lucky to have connected with this agent and recommend her highly!"
