Although the real estate market overall is booming in Anchorage, Alaska and around the country, luxury home prices grew at their slowest pace in three years. According to research by Redfin.com, the top 5 percent of homes listed for more than $1 million exhibited little growth so far this year. While luxury home selling in Anchorage is slower in many cases, an experienced Realtor will increase your odds of getting noticed by qualified buyers. Researchers say upscale homes sat on the market for 96 days or four days more than a year ago. An article by freshome.com offers a few tips to make your home stand out whether it’s a high-end or starter home. Of course, the more expensive your home is, the more important it is to use high-end materials.
Have your home inspected
Potential buyers notice if you have already had a home inspection completed. You not only save the buyer money, but give yourself time to have the top major repairs completed before buyers come into the picture.
Tour model homes for ideas
Another way to get an edge when home selling in Anchorage is to check out the sales competition in terms of similar homes for sale. Your Realtor will let you know about the features and amenities of homes in your price range. Your Realtor can also show you new construction models if you want to buy in Anchorage. While touring, you will likely feel inspired with decorating and staging ideas to help sell your current home.
Pack up some of your belongings
While an empty home doesn’t always sell as well as a home that’s furnished, you will make your home appear larger and more spacious by packing up at least half of your belongings. According to freshome.com, cutting out the clutter and boxing up personal items will give potential buyers a chance to imagine living in the home.
A luxury home is one that makes the owner feel pampered and lavished up so make sure your home has an air of opulence. Technology, a full-stocked kitchen with wine, outdoor amenities such as a fire pit and deck, game room, spa bathroom and dressing room are all features valued by high-end homebuyers.
