Selling your home fast is important not only for financial gain, but for other reasons, as well.
First, it will allow to move on with your life quickly. You won’t have to deal with the inconvenience of home showings and keeping your home in pristine condition all the time.
Second, the longer your home stays on the market, the less attractive it becomes to sellers. They may begin to think there’s something wrong with the property, leaving you with little choice but to sell at a discount.
These tips can help you get your home sold fast without sacrificing your profit.
- Price your home correctly
Overpricing is one of the most common reasons a home stays on the market longer than necessary. Work with your Realtor in coming up with the right price for your home. Your agent will help you identify comps, or similar homes that recently sold in your area, and use these to come up with a competitive selling price without leaving money on the table. It may be advisable to price the home on the lower end of the market’s range, as this can trigger a bidding war and ultimately raise the price of your home. Your Realtor can help you determine the right pricing strategy.
- Make sure the home is ready for moving in
Most buyers will want a move in ready home with the least amount of repairs needed. If your property is showing multiple signs of wear and tear, you may have a harder time selling it at a good price. Before putting your home on the market, give it a thorough inspection, preferably with your Realtor, and identify and work on the necessary repairs and upgrades. Some home improvements may be needed to update your home, but keep in mind that not all projects will yield good returns. Do your research and consult your Realtor on which improvements can truly help improve your home’s value.
- Stage your home
Cleaning your home thoroughly and giving it a fresh look are essential in getting your home sale ready. But if you want to enhance your chances of selling fast, consider home staging, as well. Home staging has been found to help sell a property more quickly and at a higher price by transforming the home into a virtual showcase. Two of the most important elements of home staging are decluttering and depersonalizing, which make it easier for buyers to imagine themselves living in the space.
- Use professional pictures in your listing
Around 90% of homebuyers start their home search on the internet. This makes the quality of the photos you post very important. If buyers are not impressed by what they see on your listing photos, they might simply move on to other listings without viewing your home. A professional real estate photographer will know how to how to highlight your home’s best features and downplay the less ideal ones. Include as many photos as you can in your listing to attract prospective buyers.
- Improve your curb appeal
First impression is very important in selling a home. If a buyer doesn’t like what they see from the outside, they might decide your home is not worth a second look. Simple improvements, such as sprucing up your landscaping, giving your exterior walls a fresh coat of paint, and upgrading your front door, can do wonders in enhancing your curb appeal.
