Experts everywhere are reporting— housing is back! So what are the best moves to make as you prepare to sell your Eastern Panhandle home? To maintain the upper hand and get the best price for your property in Jefferson or Berkeley County, you'll need to survey the following strategies.

Making More Money
Often making more money involves lowering your sights when it comes to the listing price. According to CNN, over 75% of homeowners think their agent's listing price is too low. Pricing your property on the high side can lead to a slow deal and sitting too long on the market is not great for the reputation of a home. In order to get more offers, you'll need to do research and pay attention to comparable sales and current prices.

Trading Up and Downsizing
If you have plans of moving up in your home, it's better to act sooner rather than later. Higher-end home prices aren't rising that quickly, but the gap and in certain areas, inventory, is small. When you're downsizing, it's the opposite and better to wait. Better sales and more opportunity can be found at the lower end of the real estate market where smaller homes tend to lie.

The Close-up
Small fixes to your home can pay off in a big way. Fix all plumbing and electrical problems first and next comes the cleaning, de-cluttering, and brightening. Another major factor in selling your West Virginia home is staging which can help when photos are taken. Buyers make an impression first by looking at photos online, so be sure your home is ready for its close-up. Curb appeal is important, but now web presence comes first.

Beware of Low Appraisals
More buyers are attracted to lower home prices in today's market, but closing the deal can be a problem. One-third of realtors polled in December reported setbacks from low appraisals like closing delays, lowered prices, and even cancellations. The solution to these problems is to have your Home Team real estate agent accompany the appraiser to provide information about comparable sales and recent trends.

With these tips for selling your home the smart way, you can take full advantage of what the recovering housing market has to offer and decide your own strategy for moving into your next West Virginia property.
