It’s not uncommon for selling a home to take many months or even a year or longer. However, this timeframe should never be the goal for you or for your real estate agent.
When you need to sell your home fast or you just prefer a faster sale, there are some things you can do to make the process happen quicker. Here are a few of the top ways to ensure your home sells faster, regardless of the current market.
Set the Right Price
While selling your home for top dollar may be the goal, the right list price will ensure you get it sold fast. Sometimes, it’s best to go even a little below the actual value when you’re in a hurry. However, don’t price it too low or buyers may wonder what’s wrong with the home.
Add to the Curb Appeal
Selling any home fast requires the right amount of curb appeal. Make the home make a great first impression by replacing the mailbox, planting flowers, laying new sod, painting the front door and anything else that makes the outside of your home shine. Many people will drive by to check it out and if it doesn’t look great from the outside, they may never come inside to see the home.
Depersonalize and Declutter
Your home cannot remain too personal or it will be difficult for buyers to picture it as their home. Go neutral with decor and put those family pictures away. They can come back out in your new home.
You’ll also want to declutter the home, which has to go beyond picking up magazines, books, kid’s toys and other items. It needs to extend to the furniture in each room, decor and all other accessories in the home.
Use a Professional Stager
Staging can help make a home more appealing in person and through online pictures. If you really want to sell fast, use a professional stager to ensure your home is set up for the current market.
Get the Home Cleaned
While you could spend the time scrubbing and cleaning, it’s best to let a professional handle this. When a home is professionally cleaned, it will smell fresh and will be ready to show. This will help to speed up the process and make the home more appealing to buyers.
Use these tips and the advice of a great real estate agent to ensure your home gets sold fast.
