First and foremost, if you want to sell your house on a busy street, you need to address its proximity to the road. This may not be an option for everyone, as it’s hard to forget about something that is right in front of you every day. If this is your reality, however, there are some quick and easy things to do around the exterior of your property that will make it more appealing and still keep everything safe.
One thing we highly recommend doing when selling a home near traffic is planting flower beds alongside the street. In addition to adding curb appeal, flower beds help minimize noise pollution from passersby by absorbing sound waves through vibrations in the ground.
Sell Quickly With Less Hassle
“If you want a diamond, you have to have patience and persistence,” says HBR Colorado agent Brian Rudderow. “Unfortunately, in real estate, the same thing applies. If a homeowner wants to sell their house quickly with the best possible price, they need to be patient about it. If on the other hand clients are willing to stand by their original asking price or even lower it then buyers will happily pay more than that when they see a value greater than what was originally listed for. What I always advise my clients is to remember that the market conditions change constantly and there is only so much control we can have over our listing if it isn’t in line with similar properties on quieter streets in the same location.
Aesthetically pleasing landscaping elements, including shrubbery, fencing, or walls, add character as well as privacy. Water features are desirable to buyers and used wisely can also naturally create a sound barrier to decrease traffic noise. Busy streets tend to cause issues when it comes to parking spaces for guests. However, any steps to lessen a potential problem will increase the property’s value in the eyes of a buyer, so consider adding an extra parking area if possible. The pros at HBR Colorado can help guide you to the best steps to take to sell your Colorado Springs home if you’re on a busy street.
In terms of the market itself, consider analyzing your competition by going online and locating comparable properties that have sold or are currently on the market. Check out their pricing history as well as any selling points they included in their Internet marketing copy. Look at how the local real estate market is doing overall; you can find such information from sites like Realtor.com and Zillow.com, along with local newspapers and magazines—at least where it still exists! Be sure to check small, regional public relations firms for articles about noteworthy events in your area that will shed light on what people feel makes your community appealing
In fact, HBR Colorado has a solution that can help you create the lifestyle you want for your family while still leaving some time to retire comfortably.
One of the most important considerations in determining a property’s value is its location. As a real estate agent or broker living in Colorado Springs, I have found one of the biggest reasons people choose to move is because they feel stuck in their current home. While there are numerous reasons why homeowners consider moving, it generally comes down to whether or not their home has everything they need with easy access to all amenities. When considering selling a house, features like walkability and proximity to parks, museums, bike trails, and shopping make all the difference when it comes time for you to finally move into your new home.
At HBR Colorado, we will go over the profit you would make by listing the home yourself, or with a traditional real estate agent on the MLS, or by selling directly, HBR Colorado helps you compare.
