Selling your Spring Texas home: How to Compete Against New Construction

Spring Texas new construction homesIf you are a Spring Texas home seller, you better be ready to compete against new construction homes for buyers. Because in and around the Spring Texas area, buyers have numerous new construction options.

How do you compete?

Better Pricing – New home builders are luring in buyers with huge discounts, financing incentives, flat screen TVs, and furniture gift cards. Now you don’t have to give the buyers your TV to get your house sold. But you need to have it priced right to attract the buyers. They will be comparing your home against others they view and they won’t make offers on over-priced homes.

Excellent Condition – The builders inventory homes are NEW. They do not have worn out carpet, outdated light fixtures, loud paint colors, grout that needs a deep cleaning, or sidewalks that could use power washing. The builders homes sparkle and so should yours.

Staging Spring Texas homesSet the Stage – Buyers walk into a builders model home and they immediately fall in love with the home. Why? Because it has been Staged. It looks like somebody lives there but nobody in particular.

Gone is all the clutter and the over-sized furniture. Gone are all the personal collections, wall of photos, and college diplomas. In its place are the show towels and delicate soaps, furniture proportionate for the room size, and a splattering of knick knacks that makes the rooms feel homey.

Stage your home to look like a model home so that home buyers come in and immediately fall in love.
