5 Ways To Sell Your Property In A Hurry

If you’re in a hurry to sell your property, there are sales strategies and actions you can take to get the results you need.

What’s Your Property Worth?

Knowledge is power – so your first step is to understand what your home may be worth in the current market. Don’t attempt to guess what someone would pay for your property.

Research the sales prices of similar properties in your location. Remember, you need to compare apples with apples, not apples with oranges.

For example, if you have an average three-bedroom standalone home, then you will need to find sales prices of the same type of property.

Tip:

To sell your home fast and for a great price view open homes of properties like your own. Make a list of their attributes by noting the condition of these core sales features:

  • Curb appeal condition
  • Entrance
  • Kitchen
  • Bathroom/s
  • Indoor-outdoor flow

Note that the homes that have been refurbished will appeal to more home buyers and attached a higher sales price. Find out what the homes you’ve visited sold for, and this is your sales price guide for your home.

Showcase Features And Amenities

Find your points of difference – i.e. the features of your property that buyers will want. For example

  • size
  • shape
  • location for the sun
  • garage and off-street parking
  • pool
  • garden

If your property is a condo, it will include a pool, fitness center, and parking area. So focus also on improving the property’s interior as the point of difference.

Don’t Be Afraid To Negotiate

Avoid pricing your property too high as it will discourage potential buyers. You will want a prospective home buyer to fall in love with your home. The emotional buy-in is what achieves the best sales price. 🙂

When it comes to the negotiation, you don’t need to do it yourself. Instead, use an expert negotiator to work out the best deal that suits you and the buyer. This person could be a property investor or real estate agent or someone else you trust to get you the best outcome.

Put your best foot forward, as the saying goes by, making sure your property sells itself.

Are There Issues With The Property?

If there are problems with the house, such as a leaking roof or broken fixtures, fix them, or if you can not afford to so, you will need to disclose these issues upfront to prospective buyers.

Anything broken or wrong with your property will affect the sales price.

Plus, a house with no issues is more likely to sell quickly for a higher price.

Clean Up and Staging

The worst-case scenario to achieve a quick sale is that a prospective buyer knows the property decor is tired, but the property is clean. Of course, no one wants to buy a dirty home.

Do a thorough spring clean – and don’t leave any area out. May is sure you move your furniture and stuff out – clean the walls, floor, and every other surface.

Clean inside cupboards, give all appliances a thorough wash. For example, the oven or cooker – make sure it is in decent condition with no leftover food stains.

Make sure they don’t have to worry about anything when they walk into your house.

Stage your property with hired furniture and features that showcase it to attract a top sales price.

Provide Incentives For Early Decision Buyers
