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.
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.
