5 Tips For Selling Your Home Quickly

July 9, 2013

selling your home
There are several reasons why you may need to sell your home quickly. For
example, a job change may require a speedy relocation to another city, or
you may have purchased another property and don’t want to be stuck too
long with two mortgages.
Here are some tips that can help get the sold sign on your front lawn
sooner.
• Be realistic with price. If you set the listing price higher than the
current market value of your home, then you’re not going to get
many, if any, viewers. You want the list price to be attractive, which
means listing at the current market value.
• Get things fixed. You probably don’t have time for a major
renovation. So just make sure everything in your home is in good
working order. Deal with any obvious maintenance issues, such as a
leaking faucet or a gate hanging precariously on one hinge.
• Ensure your home shows well, inside and outside. Eliminate
clutter. Trim hedges. Make sure every room has adequate lighting,
especially the basement. Imagine that a special guest is visiting your
home, then clean up and prepare accordingly.
• Be flexible with viewing times. You want as many potential buyers
as possible to see your home. So don’t restrict viewing times to just
Saturdays. Make sure your home is as “available” as possible for
showings. This may cause you and your family some inconvenience,
but the reward will be selling your property sooner.
• Work with a good REALTOR®. Find an agent who understands the
area and the local market well. He or she will be able to recommend
a variety of strategies that will help sell your home faster, and for a
good price.
• Of course, there’s no way to guarantee that you’ll sell your home within the
time frame you want. But these tips will certainly increase the chances that
you will.
