5 Strategies to Help Sell your Home Fast!
Give yourself a realistic timeline to sell and list your house at a competitive price.
How long it takes to sell your home can depend on many variables. Research your neighborhood’s current and most recent listings. Check out the price points and see how many days on the market comparable homes in your area took to sell. In today's market you must price your home considering current value and based on other homes listed in close proximity. If you are uncertain of the value, consider hiring an appraiser to help!
Improve your Curb Appeal.
First impressions are VERY important. Consider touching up or replacing your mailbox. If it needs repainting or new numbers start there. Trim overgrown shrubs and trees to showcase a manicured lawn. If it's springtime, buy a few inexpensive, low maintenance flowers to add charm to your front lawn. You do not want potential buyers to dismiss your property from the moment they first see it.
Organize, De-clutter and De-pet your home.
Take time to organize and go through all areas of your home. Pack up unnecessary items that make your home appear cluttered. Remember, potential buyers are looking in every closet and kitchen drawer to get an everyday feel of living in your space. Things do not have to always be perfect but make sure your home is tidy and well kept. Something else to consider is pets. Potential buyers may have allergies or general concerns if there is too much evidence of animals living in the house. Try to minimize their exposure to your pet’s life in your home.
Showcase your Best Home Features.
If your home offers large closets in every bedroom, make sure to show their maximum potential and utilize the space. If you have a gorgeous fireplace, arrange your furniture to make this a focus of that room. If you have a huge dining room, stage the room to show how many place settings can fit for a family thanksgiving.
And finally….Offer Extras to Sweeten the Deal!
If you have the flexibility to leave your refrigerator, washer dryer or custom drapes, offer them with your asking price. If you can afford to offer a flooring, paint or appliance allowance that can be a huge selling point. Everyone is looking for an exceptional deal and every little thing can help your home stand out over their other top choices.
