Even in today’s HOT market, there are still things you can do to sell your home fast
Today Jessica shares 3 tips for homeowners to sell your home fast!
Tip 1 – Price it Right from the Start
Sellers often think they should price high and then lower the price later if the house doesn’t sell right away. But that can actually result in selling your home at a lower price. The first 30 days your home is on the market is always the best activity you’re going to see. If you price too high, your home is just going to sit on the market with very few showings, and it might even get stale. Many buyers and their agents will stay away, assuming you’re not serious about selling or that you’re unwilling to negotiate.
Tip 2 – Clean, Declutter, and Depersonalize
The fewer things you have in your home, the larger is looks, and the more likely it is to sell. We recommend removing anything unnecessary from your home before you take photos, including knick knacks, kids’ toys, and extra furniture. We also recommend taking down family photos, religious items, and political posters so prospective buyers can truly envision THEIR family in the home. It might also be a good idea to hire a professional cleaning service to give your home a nice deep clean.
Tip 3 – Make the Property Easy to Show
Being flexible about showings gives all buyers the opportunity to tour your home. This increases the odds that it will sell quickly! Be ready for prospective buyers early in the morning, at night, and on weekends with little notice. It’s also a nice courtesy to leave the home during showings. This lets buyers discuss the pros and cons comfortably and roam the house. As always, leave the home in the best possible showing condition. First impressions are everything!
