Selling a house can be time consuming and expensive, and having a speedy sale may be the last thing on your mind.
Between getting your home ready for the sale, making repairs, cleaning, agent fees and commissions, and closing costs, you’ve racked up quite the bill. Thankfully, there are ways to expedite the process, giving you the quick sale you need.
Continue scrolling for seven tips for selling your house quickly.
1.DON’T OVERPRICE — If you’re in a rush to sell your home, it cannot be overpriced. Forget location, location, location! When you’re trying to close the sale, it’s all about price. Overpricing your house may be tempting — of course, as a seller, you’re interested in pocketing a hefty profit. However, there are many dangerous effects of an overpriced home, such as languishing on the market for months without interest.
2.UNDERWHELMING CURB APPEAL — Despite the fact we’ve been taught not to judge a book by its cover, this rule goes out the window in the world of real estate. The so-called “cover” of your house is its curb appeal and how it looks matters and leaves a long-lasting first impression. Your house can’t sell if no one is willing to step inside and take a look around.
3.PROFESSIONAL MARKETING PHOTOS — Speaking of first impressions, professional photos of your home allow you to make a good first impression on the internet. Most people’s first impression of your house is the listing they see on the web, so make it impactful. Your smartphone camera won’t cut it this time around. Instead, hire a professional estate photographer that will capture the home in an inviting and positive way.
4.SPREAD THE WORD — Of course, you’ll have many marketing resources when you sell with an agent. However, it can’t hurt to spread the word yourself. Tell your friends, family, and coworkers and post it to all of your social media accounts that you’re selling your house. Word of mouth can make a big difference for a speedy sale.
5.LIGHT AND BRIGHT — A brightly lit home shows much better than a dark, cave-like one. Open the curtains, turn on the lights, and have your windows cleaned if necessary. A little sunshine and vitamin D can have positively impact a potential buyer.
6.SHOWCASE YOUR HOME BY STAGING IT — A staged house spends a lot less time on the market than an empty house. Whether you do it yourself or hire a professional to do the job, a furnished home that showcases the floor plan won’t be on the market for long. A staged home allows buyers to imagine themselves living in the house. A well-staged space takes a property from a house to a home.
7.KEEP YOUR HOUSE AVAILABLE — Open houses are great and all, but nowadays, buyers are interested in virtual tours and private showings. Having a flexible schedule when it comes to showing your home can make all the difference. Do what you can to keep your house showing-ready and be ready to leave at a moment’s notice.
