Here are the three things you must do if you’ll be selling your home anytime in 2021:

1. Price your home right. If you’re in metro Atlanta, you likely know how low inventory is. However, for the most part, buyers will only be willing to pay what an appraiser says your house is worth, and appraisers only look at what has been sold already. So keep in mind what comparable properties have sold for when pricing your home.

2. Keep your emotions in check. The average homeowner is staying in their house longer. People used to stay in their homes for an average of seven years, but now the average is 10 years—that’s more time to build up emotional equity. You have to remember that while, yes, you’ve built memories in this house, the new buyer hasn’t yet. When you choose to list your home, you’re choosing to turn it into a product for sale, meaning you have to look at it from the eyes of an unacquainted buyer.

"Buyers will only be willing to pay what an appraiser says your house is worth." 

3. Stage your property right. This could be as simple as making a few adjustments like painting walls or moving furniture. It could also mean painting cabinets or completely staging it with furniture if the house is vacant. There are different levels of staging, and now more than ever buyers need to feel a very strong emotional connection with your property if they’re going to be paying 5% to 15% more than they would have last year.
