    The housing marketplace is hot once again. Or is it showing signs of giving way? When selling your home, what can you expect in terms of getting your price — with reasonable concessions — in the fastest time possible?

    Marc Takacs, a realtor from Keller Williams In Atlanta Team, shares some simple and affordable ideas, along with some specific strategies, to give you the edge. While some of this conversation is Atlanta specific, the rules apply pretty much across the board.

    Key takeaways

    In this episode, you’ll hear Marc’s creative insights into:

    • Staging. Why this is much more important now that even just a few months ago. Especially if you have to sell and move fast.
    • Changes you can make to meet your goal to sell at the highest price possible.
    • How to price your house like Walmart and give them a Neiman Marcus experience.
    • Why location (and location, and location) is still the foundation for creating demand for your house.
    • Simple things to do such as decluttering, cleaning and creating curb appeal.

    He also discusses the challenges unique to selling investment properties as well as what happens when you become an accidental landlord and decide to sell. For millennials, he addresses nuances they should keep in mind regarding how the market has changed. While overall this demographic isn’t finding it that attractive to snap up bargains, improve them, and build equity, for those who are investing, the financial strategy when buying a home has changed in terms of size, spend and time to hold.

    And finally, when is the ultimate time to sell your house, and what the heck is going on with the color beige? If you’re ready to leverage the market and realize the fruits of your risk, investment, and property, take a moment and listen to this episode of IRC Wealthcast. PLUS!
