Once you have made the decision to sell your home, the last thing you want is to let your listing go stale. Selling your home quickly should be your goal, since the longer it is on the market the less attractive it will be to a potential buyer. Here are some tips to help you get it off your hands quickly so that you can move onto the next stage, whether that may be moving up to a larger home or downsizing to a condominium or an apartment.
How to Go About Selling Your Home Quickly
1. Price your property appropriately for the current market.
If you want your house to move quickly, you need to price it similarly to other homes with similar features in your neighbourhood. They will be your competition. It doesn’t matter what you ideally want to get for your home; you will have to set the price for what the market will bear.
2. Clear out all the clutter from your home.
The more stuff that is in your house, the smaller it will look. Buyers also can’t see past your belongings to picture their things in the space. By paring down your furniture and accessories down to the minimum, a potential buyer will be able to get a better idea of the square footage of your home.
3. Complete any maintenance projects you have started.
Potential buyers don’t want to see any half-finished projects when they come to see your home. Today’s prospective homeowners are quite picky about what they are looking for when they are viewing real estate. If you leave things incomplete, you may run the risk of losing out on the chance to sell your house. A buyer may wonder what other issues with the house need to be addressed that cannot be seen.
4. Work with an experienced real estate agent.
When selling your home quickly is your goal, you need the expertise of a realtor who knows your neighbourhood and can bring you qualified buyers for your property. They can also help with negotiations once the sale gets to that point to ensure that you and a potential buyer come to terms in a fair and reasonable manner.
