Selling your home can be a stressful and cluttered time which is why the quicker it sells the quicker you can move on. Unfortunately sometimes it takes longer to sell than expected which can delay your next move. Here are a few tips that can increase the chances of selling your home faster.
* Home staging: If you can afford a professional home-stager, do it! They know what they are doing and can make even the darkest corners of your home seem inviting. If you don’t want to spend the money then follow a few of these home staging tips to improve the overall appeal of your home.
* Price it right: Of course we all want to get the most money out of our homes as possible but at what expense? I have seen homeowners who are so determined to get a higher price out of their home that they will lose money paying two mortgages. If you really want to sell then talk with your realtor to determine the most amount of money you can get now. Plus pricing it lower can bring in big interest and possibly result in competing bids.
* Curb appeal: If someone is not interested in your home from the outside then chances are they will never take the time to see the inside. This doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money on a complete landscaping overhaul. Instead simply keep your lawn mowed, invest in a couple bright colored hanging baskets, and keep outdoor cluttered such as kids toys picked up. You want to portray that you maintain a clean and organized environment.
* Exposure: Make sure that your home is getting the exposure it needs from your realtor. Take us for example, we have compiled a comprehensive approach to ensuring exposure of your listing throughout all of the traditional routes as well as on multiple social media platforms. Having this type of reach only increases the chances of finding that perfect buyer.
* Last but not least: Leave: Yep, you heard that correctly… leave your home anytime someone is coming to look at it. While you are at it take your dog or cat with you. People want to be able to picture themselves living in your home, being comfortable, but with your lurking over their shoulders they are just looking forward to leaving. As long as you, the homeowner, are there they will always feel like guests in the home and even if only subconsciously will not want to come back.
