You may be planning to sell your luxury home and wonder how to find the right buyer. For every home, there is the right person or family who will buy it regardless of whether it's a standard home or a luxury home. The key is finding the right buyer.
Luxury homes might take a bit longer to find the right buyer but that's ok. The goal for selling a luxury property isn't always speed but rather the right buyer who sees themselves living there. Here are some tips on finding the right buyer to buy your luxury home.
Price Your Home Correctly
This is where working with the right real estate agent will come in handy. One of the most important aspects of selling a luxury home is to price it correctly. In some cases, the home is overpriced and will either sit on the market for much longer than it needs to, or it won't sell at all.
Luxury homes for sale attract a certain type of buyer and they tend to know and understand the market well. They will see if a home is overpriced and will typically avoid it. This can be due to the fact that many buyers don't believe the seller will come down in price very much so they may not opt to put in a lower-priced bid. They will simply walk away.
Instead, do some research on your property. This means finding out lot size, the house size itself, and have a market analysis done for your neighborhood including other homes for sale comparable to yours. You need to know what the market is like for your type of home and what other houses have sold for recently. This will help you determine the correct price for your home that should attract buyers.
Market The Home Effectively
Luxury homes need a different style of marketing plan than a standard home does. Since luxury homes attract a different kind of buyer, they aren't always looking in the same places where standard homes advertise. While you can list your home on the MLS, you need to do more creative marketing as well.
A good real estate agent will market through their own network and contact other agents who have clients looking for luxury homes. They can also make use of video websites like Youtube and Vimeo and create the home's own dedicated website linked to your agent's website to showcase photographs, videos, and virtual tours. An agent can also make use of other social media websites like Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest to showcase the home.
One other way to market via digital means is to have a podcast or live stream of the home where the agent or yourself can answer questions from prospective buyers. The live stream link could be given to prospective buyers from their agents ahead of time.
