Selling luxury Crested Butte CO real estate is not like selling average priced property.  Because the list price is in a higher range, expect your home to be on the market for a longer period of time. Why? Because the pool of potential buyers is much less. Not everyone has that kind of money to spend on a home, especially if they are making it their second one. To help you sell quickly and for the most money, you must first partner with an experienced realtor who not only knows real estate but is a great negotiator.

Here are some things you can do to your home to make sure it appeals to potential buyers and sells quickly:

    Front curb appeal: If potential buyers don’t like the outside of your home, they’re not going to want to step foot inside. Make sure leaves are raked, the gardening is done, the front door is painted and the walkway is shoveled if you’re selling in winter. Your windows should be washed and your front porch should be clear of debris.
*     Have the fireplace crackling: Nothing is as warm and inviting as a fire in the fireplace.
*     Lighting for mood: Lighting can affect a buyer’s mood as soon as they step inside. Keep lighting soft and warm for an inviting feel.
*     Update your kitchen and bathrooms: These are the most important rooms of your house and potential buyers want to see that they are updated and modern.

Your realtor can help give you other pointers and advice on how to sell your luxury home quickly. Most Crested Butte CO real estate tends to sell quickly because of the allure people have to the area. Hire a realtor that not only knows the village but has the experience and expertise to help you get the most money possible for your luxury home.
