3 Winning Ways to Sell Your House

Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 11, 2008

Putting a house on the market? A good real estate agent isn’t all sellers need. According to the latest study conducted by a real estate website Fizber.com, staging a house can be the difference between its sitting or selling. Here are some findings and simple staging tips from Fizber.com to help sellers turn lookers into buyers at their next open house.

The Fizber.com most recent studies show staged homes sell quicker – sometimes up to 40% faster – than non-staged homes. “We’ve also found that staged homes’ sale price is anywhere from 5% to 10% higher than a non-staged home,” adds Julia Foster, Fizber.com VP of marketing. “Take a $ 500,000 home, 5% to 10% above asking price translates into $ 25,000 to $ 50,000 more in your pocket just by staging your house. Simply stated, ASP staged homes sell faster for more money than those that aren’t staged.”

Three basic staging rules:

1. Entice buyers to enter. If people don’t like what they see on the outside, they may not come in. Doors are the one exception to the neutral-color rule. Rich colors say “welcome” and “come inside.” Some suggestions: red, black, charcoal and chocolate brown.

2. Curb appeal to sell a house. Curb appeal is 360 degrees around a house – and includes the neighbors and the neighborhood. Sellers should focus first on what they can control, especially landscaping outdoor spaces and lighting. Sadly, many sellers skip this obvious step and lose equity – and many prospective buyers – as a direct result.

3. Clobber the clutter. Go room by room and purge. Get rid of anything personal.

“If staging your home is too big a project to pull off by yourself, there are scores of professionals willing to give you a hand,” says Foster. “You can find Accredited Staging Professionals in your state at Homestaging.fizber.com”. Hiring a professional home stager has great benefits to the seller. The seller doesn’t have to spend every night and weekend trying to get the house ready for people to see. The seller can continue with their normal routine and have one less thing to worry about.

An average staging job is just a little over $ 1,000 (depending on the region) and this service is also less than the cost to carry a house for months on the market. According to Barb Schwarz, the founder of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals, “As a simple rule of thumb, the investment in staging your home will always be less than the first price reduction on your home.”

Find Out If Hot Celebrities Are In Your Area

Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 14, 2008

Fizber.com has compiled a comprehensive database of celebrity home addresses on their real estate search engine website. There are addresses from all fields including actors, actresses, pop stars, supermodels, authors and sports stars. And, with Fizber.com’s online property listings displaying celebrities’ houses in your area, your chances of having a famous neighbor are on the up.

Fizber.com displays the new feature on the same page as the listing itself, allowing house hunters to view the addresses of famous neighbors in the neighborhood immediately by clicking on “Celebrities in your area”.

Places like New York, Los Angeles and Palm Springs have such a high concentration of bold-face names that it seems there’s always a residence on the market that belongs, or belonged, to someone well known. “There’s a lot of positioning of oneself out here,” said Julia Foster, PR Manager for Fizber.com. “I’m always hearing people say, ‘I bought a house next to such and such famous person’ or ‘I’m in the same neighborhood as so and so’.”

When it comes to real estate, stars generally aren’t treated any differently than other rich people. Homes generally don’t demand a premium just because a celebrity was living there. At the same time, famous buyers are unlikely to get any kind of a bargain, since sellers often push famous folks to pay full price.

FSBO Expert Fizber.com Shares Easy Secrets to Sell Your House Faster

Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 2, 2008

If you’re trying to sell a house in this incredibly tough market, you will likely need some help. Fizber.com breaks down five important steps to sell a home in the current slumping market.

1. Declutter.

“One of the most important things you can do to make a home more appealing is to declutter the rooms,” says Julia Foster of Fizber.com. “Clear out as much furniture as you can. Put it in storage, give it to Goodwill Industries or have a garage sale. Hallways and doorways, in particular, need to be clear and open.”

2. Stage your home.

“Most owners aren’t seeing bidding wars the way they were a few years ago,” says Foster. “But with the right staging, you can get close to your asking price.” For those in need of help, Homestaging.fizber.com has contact information for professionals well versed in the art of making a home look appealing.

3. Take quality photos.

Homes that have one photo are passed by. Homes with dozens of photographs get noticed. “Take several photos of the kitchen,” recommends Foster. “The kitchen is generally the most important photo. Before photographing the dining room, set the table.”

4. Get a home inspection.

Most buyers will have one done anyway. “Do it now — and make any needed repairs before you put the home on the market,”says Foster. Depending on where the homeowner lives, the service will probably run about $ 200 to $ 400.

5. Entice buyers with money.

Pay a percentage of buyers’ closing costs. “Most buyers today that have to buy are struggling to get the down payment, to get another 3 to 6 percent for closing costs — they don’t have it. So the seller usually ends up contributing at least 3 percent,” Foster said.

About Fizber.com

With home listings throughout the United States, Fizber.com strives to connect buyers and sellers more effectively. The site offers to list for-sale properties on a multiple listing service for a $ 349.95 flat fee, to submit property ads to a variety of property search engines for a $ 299.95 flat fee, and a package of both services for $ 499.95.

What’s the Best Pricing Strategy?

Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 4, 2008 –

If it’s priced right, it sells. Fizber.com breaks down three important strategies to price a home in a buyer’s market.

“Your asking price is often your home’s “first impression”, and if you want to receive the most money you can for your home, it’s imperative that you make a good first impression,” says Julia Foster of Fizber.com.

To make the first impression count some savvy sellers are now taking dressing up the family home to a new level — parking shiny luxury cars in the driveway. Parking a brand new flash BMW in the driveway is hardly subtle, but it works and helps boost a house price by as much as 10 per cent.

Homeowners who want to improve their odds of finding a buyer should also consider these three pricing tips.

1. Study your market

“It’s tough being the seller in a buyer’s market,” says Julia Foster. “But you can get the best price come down if you study your market and become an educated seller.” Look at comparables for similar houses. Study prices and sales for one year ago, six months ago, three months ago and current numbers.

2. Use precise numbers.

People associate precise numbers with bargains. If a house should sell for around $ 200,000, then offering a round number like $ 195,000 will convey quality and willingness to negotiate, and choosing a higher but precise number like $ 195,650 would indicate a bargain.

3. Rebate your “commission.”

If you are selling it yourself, consider subtracting half of what would have been the commission from the sale price, says Foster. Listing a home for $ 10,000 under that value should create higher interest, especially if it’s new to the market.

If sellers really need extra assurance, they can hire a professional appraiser. An appraiser will cost approximately $ 250-400, depending on a home size and uniqueness of the property. An appraisal from a certified professional appraiser will be an estimation of a property’s fair market value.

Learn Best Home Buying Techniques

Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 5, 2008

Buying a home is an exciting and important life event. Being a first time home buyer means that you will have many decisions to make — and just as many questions that need answering. That is why Fizber.com, a real estate search engine site, is offering three home buying secrets that most first time buyers don’t know.

Buying your first home is a huge step. These helpful home buying tips may reduce confusion about mortgage payments and the cost of buying a house:

1. Get preapproved

Buyers should always get preapproved before they begin house hunting. Buyers should get a written preapproval from a reputable mortgage lender before they start shopping for a home.

2. Calculate your mortgage payments

Buyer’s mortgage payments might be the same or less than rent payments. The (principal and interest) monthly payment on a $ 200,000, 30-year, fixed rate mortgage with an interest rate of six percent (6.25%) is $ 1,231 — less than what some people pay for rent (taxes, insurance and any other fees, including closing costs, are extra).

3. Share closing costs

Buyers may ask sellers to pay for closing costs. As part of the negotiating process when buying a house, the buyer may ask the seller to pay for a percentage of the non-recurring closing costs, sometimes saving thousands of dollars for the buyer.
