If you’re looking to get a fast sale on your home, maybe because you’re starting a new job or you need to save some cash, then there are ways you can help speed up the process, without necessarily meaning dropping the price and losing loads of dollars. Here are four ways for you to consider.
The way you sell
How you decide to sell your property could have a big impact on how quickly you are able to find a willing buyer, who goes through with the purchase. Don’t think there’s just one way to sell your property. Options include: listing it on the market, getting a real state buying company involved or owner-financing. Check out these tips, and if in doubt, take some expert advice to make sure you pick the best option for your individual circumstances.
Marketing your home
No matter which method you to sell your home, you’ll also want to think carefully about how it is marketed. How are you going to spread the word that your property is for sale and it’s a must-see? Of course, your realtor or agent will have ways of doing this, but you may also want to consider adding your own marketing into the mix.
A cheap and easy way is to take to social media. You could post details of your property, along with photos and video, on your main profile pages. You could also share to expert sites and blogs. Some sellers have even done live broadcasts from their homes, showing people around and immersing them in what’s on offer. You never know, you may just reach someone who falls in love with your house and snaps it up!
Making your home seductive
Whether it’s online or in person, whoever looks at your property is going to need to be convinced that buying it is the right thing to do. That will come in part from location and size, but you also need to be focusing hard on what’s on the inside. What does it say to potential buyers? If your property is messy, cluttered and dirty, the chances are that sale isn’t going to come easy.
So, take a step back, and think about making your home look the best possible. Give it a makeover if necessary. It needs to look clean, tidy and allow people to see the possibilities of how they could make what’s been your own home, their own.
Do some decorating, get some new bits of furniture, whatever it takes to make a great first impression. This way, you’ll maximize your chances of getting a sale – and quickly!
The experts will advise you on how much you should be selling your property for but, if over many months, it isn’t shifting, then you may need to reconsider the price. That doesn’t mean offering a massive discount, but you may need to be flexible if you still want to move quickly. If you stick to the same selling price, you may be hanging around for much longer than you want to.
