There are times when you have plenty of time for a home to sell, but that is not always the case. For example, if you have a job offer in another area of the state or across the country, you don’t have the luxury of months to wait for the highest offer to come in. If circumstances require you to sell your home quickly, consider these tips that could help.
- Enhance the Curb Appeal – The more interest in your home, the quicker it will generally sell, and it could even sell for a higher price. To get buyers to make an offer, they first have to be enticed to tour your home, and that starts by how they feel when they drive by it.
- Create an Amazing First Impression – It might surprise you to learn that often a buyer’s decision about a house is based on what they observe in the first 30 to 60 seconds. Put your focus on everything they’ll see from the front door, and even though it sounds silly, consider baking some cookies or create other enticing aromas. People are influenced by scent as much as visuals.
- Stage the Home – Your goal is to let buyers be able to visualize living there. A real estate professional can offer ideal advice on how to accomplish this goal. Common suggestions are to rearrange furniture, take personal items and extra belongings to a storage facility, and hire professionals for yard care and house cleaning.
- Price it Right – You will sell your home more quickly when it is priced properly. That could mean setting the price below the market for your neighborhood. It is better to take a lower price if that avoids incurring excessive expenses keeping two residences.
