If you are ready to sell, it may be a good idea to do so quickly. It doesn’t matter if the reason you’re selling your home is that you’re moving soon for a job change or if there’s an offer to buy, it’s crucial to increase interest in your house. The more potential buyers you have, the greater your chances of selling your home quickly and for a good price.
There are six easy ways to quick house sale, regardless of why you want it to be sold.
- Find The Right Real Estate Agent
The first step to selling your home fast is to hire an agent. The ideal agent is familiar with the local market and will have a track record of success in selling homes. Remember that both the seller and the buyer are responsible for the commission. In return for the convenience and assistance of an agent, you are likely to be responsible for a seller commission between 2% – 4% of your selling price.
- Pricing It To Sell
Price your home competitively to sell it quickly. Pricing it too high can deter buyers. Potential buyers might want your price to drop, so it will take longer for them to settle.
Your realty agent, or realtor, will search comparable homes (aka “comps”) in your local area to help determine a realistic market price. If you need your home to sell quickly, consider pricing it a little lower to draw interest and spark a bidding frenzy. If no offers are received by a particular date, your agent will reduce your selling cost.
- Clean, De-Clutter, And Personalize
Buyers must feel comfortable in their space. But, they won’t if the place is messy. It is important to clean up your home from top-to-bottom. It’s a standard industry practice to hire a professional cleaner before major events.
Rearrange furniture so buyers can easily navigate your home. If needed, move bulky items into storage. A crowded room is like a small space.
- Boost Your Curb Appeal
It’s important to make a good first impression to sell quickly. A buyer will first see the home’s exterior and how it fits within its neighborhood. Your home’s curb appeal can be improved by looking at its surroundings as well.
It may be too late for major renovations. It may be too late to do major renovations if the sale is imminent. Consider making minor repairs and maintaining your house’s exterior, like window washing, touch-up paint, and fixing any broken windows.
Potential buyers appreciate a home that has a positive curb appeal. They also feel more comfortable believing the house is in good condition.
- Make Quick Repairs
You won’t have enough time to make extensive renovations. So focus your efforts on quick fixes to avoid potential buyers being discouraged. Make sure you inspect the house thoroughly and fix any problems that may arise.
- Make sure to fix any loose tiles in the kitchen and bathroom.
- Take care of any loose hinges in doors and cabinets.
- You can either unclog the drawer tracks or replace them.
- All plumbing systems must be working properly and any leaky faucets should be repaired.
- You can remove carpet stains and refinish hardwood floors.
- Sweeten The Deal
Offer something to sweeten the deal to make the house and deal more attractive. Buyers love financial rewards, so consider what you can do to make your offer more appealing. Examples include:
- All closing fees are covered.
- You can arrange move-out/move-in dates that are most convenient for you.
- Consent to all inspections
- Acceptance to pay a buyer for known items of concern
- You can get a transferable house warranty to cover repairs and replacements for your household appliances and other systems at a discounted price.cc
