CBFL Tips for How to Sell Your Home Faster

If you want to sell your property quickly, consider putting in some extra effort to make your home stand out from the competition. A favorable market for home buyers and the advent of new technologies means today's housing market requires proper timing, preparation and a good real estate agent. Try some of these tips to make the most of your home listing and sell your property faster.

Give Your Home a Face Lift
A variety of small home remodels and upgrades can do wonders for attracting home buyers. Some key projects you can do to make your house for sale more appealing include caulking small cracks and holes in walls, trimming bushes and trees, adding a coat of paint to your home's exterior or interior and pressure washing the driveway.

Be Prepared to Give In a Little
While you shouldn't give in to every request a home buyer makes, it’s important you are willing to negotiate various terms to move the sale along. This could include offering help with closing costs and adding in appliances that are already in the home as part of the sale.

Price your Home Realistically
List your home at a competitive and realistic price early on in the process. Studies show internet real estate listings get the bulk of their views in their first two weeks online, making it even more important that you set your property at an attractive price.

Embrace Technology
Your real estate agent will take advantage of today’s technology to advertise your home. Multiple Listing Services on the internet and a virtual tour of your home can be very effective when it comes to selling a home.

Clean Up and Put Away
Keep your home clean and attractive. According to Parade Magazine, staging your home before a sale may greatly increase chances that it will sell faster. You should also be sure to depersonalize your property by putting away any family photos and other belongings.

Ask a Buyer
Invite a friend to walk through your Home like a buyer would. Get their opinion on whether or not your Home is inviting and well-maintained.
