When you sell your home it can involve many considerations, but there is a difference between a standard everyday home and one that is luxury. Luxury homes need to be positioned differently and use different strategies so that you can attract the right buyers. Ultimately, the goal being that you sell your home for the highest price possible in the shortest amount of time.

Upgrading Amenities
Some homes will already be set up as falling into the luxury market segment, but even that being said it is important to look at it to assess if it has today’s amenities that are sought after by the luxury buyer. Today’s luxury buyers are looking for things like professional grade kitchens, smart home technology, home theaters, and similar just to name a few.

Highlight Luxury Features
Once you have identified all of your home’s luxury features, then it is time to make sure they are showcased and highlighted properly to prospective buyers. Professional, quality photos are always a must while virtual tours, accurate and compelling descriptions, and ultimately in-person viewings all help explain your home’s value.

The Right Price
Identifying the correct price right from the beginning is always most important. Overpricing can alienate the right buyers while underpricing can not all the time, but sometimes leave money on the table. Consider all of the important market data that is provided to you by your agent so that you can arrive at the best possible asking price. Usually, the most buyer traffic is seen in the first two weeks of listing so capitalize on the exposure.

Work With An Experienced Real Estate Agent
Hiring a real estate agent who is skilled in the marketing and selling of luxury properties is most important. They will bring a wealth of knowledge from using the right tools to market your property along with oftentimes having access to a network of high net worth individuals that may be the right fit for your property.

Creating The Right Marketing Strategy
Marketing is always important but especially when selling luxury properties. There are many channels of marketing a luxury property these days that include social media, open houses, printed materials, signs on the property, and more. It is important to devise a marketing strategy that appeals to high-end buyers and conveys the value of your home so be sure to leverage technology, including virtual and 3D tours, and professional cameras equipped with drone photography.
