Price It Right
One of the best ways to sell your home quickly is not to get greedy in terms of the pricing. Selling just below the fair market value does not mean that you are losing money. Just think of it selling faster and not sitting on the market or showing it over and over again. It’s a strategy based on more than what you think you should get from it. One way to do this is to work with a real estate agent who is very familiar with the current market conditions and who knows how to list your home just under the right threshold to attract potential home buyers.
Keep in mind that buyers do their research as well. Real estate information is widely available on the internet and they want to make sure that they get the best value for their money based on the size, condition and location.
Another option to look at is to work with investors and professional home buyers. If you do not want to go through all the hassle of listing your home, then this is the perfect option to explore.
Declutter Your Home
Homes that are filled with things that have accumulated over the years, will surely not sell quickly unless the price is reduced. Buyers normally lose interest when they see a cluttered home because they cannot thoroughly appreciate the full potential of the property. The home does not feel inviting and there is a perception of deferred maintenance.
Try to remove even the old magazines on the coffee table and keep everything orderly. This way, the property will look very spacious and it is easier for the buyer to imagine themselves living in the property. You can also remove the unnecessary furniture, family photos and artwork on walls. Keep your home as clean and orderly as possible. Think of the process as streamlining your property so that navigating through it becomes easier.
Do Deep Cleaning
Once you are done with the decluttering process, it is now time to perform deep cleaning. Take time to do deep cleaning underneath all the clutter are dust and dirt layers. Time to re caulk areas around the tub and windows. This is way beyond the 10 minutes that you allot it in preparation for a small gathering inside your home.
The next step is to systematically go over all the areas of your home. Scrub and clean your kitchen and bathroom until they are spotless. The bath tub, toilet, showers, and all hygiene care areas should be clean and free from any kind of mold formation. No pink!
Next is to sweep, vacuum and mop all areas of your home. You need to clean your carpets as well, make sure that you remove any stains so that it will look brand new. Wash off the walls to get rid of any stains and touch up with paint. You can use a bleach solution in this process to remove all the stains or a magic eraser works great! Make sure to wipe them down afterwards.
It is also important to clean the windows and screens. Having as much natural light as possible enter your home would greatly affect its overall appearance. Remove old curtains and broken blinds. Keep it light – that’s the key.
Once you are done on the inside, it’s time to review the exterior. A little mulch and some new plants can really spruce up the curb appeal. Make sure to declutter the outside as well.
Take High Quality Photos
If you take time to scour through real estate websites, you’ll notice that there are homes that immediately catch your eye. That is because what you are seeing is a home that has been prepared for selling quickly through high quality photos. Now ask yourself, how does your home compare to the ones that interest you?
If not, then do as suggested. Photos can make homes that need a little help look much better. Work with a good real estate photographer because they are experts and take photos of your home at certain angles that make it look bigger and orderly.
If you want to sell your home fast, then presentation is very important. But if you do not have the time, money, and convenience to do all these things and stage your home properly, then working with professional home buyers may be a very good option for you.
