When you’re looking to sell your home, you probably want it to sell quickly. A faster sale means less time showing your home and less stress for you. But how can you help make it happen? There are some simple tricks to getting an offer on your home and getting it off the market more quickly.
Find an Experienced Listing Agent
When you need to sell your home quickly, taking the time to find the right listing agent can make all the difference. If you choose the right agent, you will have a dedicated professional who is an expert at marketing properties. At the very least, a good agent will properly market your home while giving you advice on how to stage it for showings. They should also be a clear communicator and an aggressive negotiator in order to earn the most from your sale.
Time Your Listing Just Right
As you work with your listing agent, you will likely talk about when you should list your home. The real estate market can fluctuate rapidly, and your area can go from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market in no time. Some factors that can influence your sale are the number of homes available in your area, current selling prices, and the popularity of your particular neighborhood. Even the day you list your home can make a difference (Redfin notes that homes listed on Thursdays sell the quickest). Keep these elements in mind as you decide when to list your property.
Set a Competitive Price
Another factor in selling your home quickly is the price. Competitive pricing can make your listing stand out to potential buyers. Just be sure your pricing will not drastically cut into your profits. This is another area where your agent can assist in making the best decision. Take a look at recent property transactions in your particular area as well as current listing prices for comparative properties. Setting an attractive price is a perfect way to get an expedient offer on your home.
Deep Clean and Strategically Stage
If you want to sell your home fast, you will need to do a little work around your property. Cleaning and staging are almost always required before you list your home. Speak with your listing agent to determine how deep of a clean you need to complete and what staging steps you should take. If you plan on tackling the cleaning yourself, use a thorough cleaning list to make sure you take care of every nook and cranny.
You may want to update your cleaning arsenal to make last-minute touch-ups a cinch, and at the very least, you should get a mini vacuum cleaner, a dust mop, and a wet mop that doesn’t require a bucket, all of which are inexpensive (and can be taken to your new home). In terms of strategic staging, the less cluttered, the better, so be smart about decor and furniture you keep in your home.
Increase Exterior Appeal
Paying close attention to the front and back of your property is also a good idea when you want to sell your home. Creating curb appeal is essential to enticing potential buyers into taking a closer look at your home. Be sure your yard is tidy and landscaped with lovely plants, and that the exterior of your home is free of dirt and grime. Dedicate some time to sweeping walkways and adding appeal to the entryway of your house. Seemingly small touches like a fresh lick of paint on the front door and a new mailbox can make a big difference.
Leave Property Photos to a Pro
Creating a quality listing is critical to quickly selling your home, and good photos are key to helping your listing stand out. A photographer who has experience with listing photos will know the best lighting, the right angles, and the best methods for capturing the beauty of your property. A real estate photographer generally charges $110 – $300 per shoot. Having high-quality property photos is essential for creating online listings that are guaranteed to attract more people.
Selling a home can be stressful, especially when your home seems to be just sitting on the market. A faster transaction can mean less tension for you and fewer worries about getting the most out of the sale of your home, so take these simple steps to sell your home quickly.
