Your home’s value is determined by a number of factors including the specific location, style, size, features, and condition of your home. Online home value estimates aren’t particularly accurate, unfortunately. Median sales prices and price ranges for homes like yours will help you assess the likely value range. It’s also helpful to know the temperature of the market – whether it’s a buyer’s market, seller’s market, or a balanced market. Comparing your home to recently sold homes is also helpful. There’s a link below with access to photos, prices, and details of recently sold homes in Roxborough & Manayunk.
1. You Don’t Get a Second Chance to Make a First Impression
Photos will be the first thing potential buyers see. Since home buyers are shopping for homes online, and getting alerts of new listings that match their criteria, the first time any buyer or agent will get a glimpse of your home will be the listing photos. Most people are perusing listings while they’re doing other things like standing in line at the store, riding the train to work, or watching TV. People will typically make a decision about whether or not they like a house within just a few seconds, often after seeing only 3-5 photos. If the photos don’t catch their attention they’ll simply swipe the screen and move on to the next listing. A professional photographer who understands lighting, angles, and composition will ensure that your home looks it’s best in the photos.
