4 Tips to Help Sell Your Home Fast

Use these great tips to help you sell your home fast!

Selling a house can be a grueling process, sometimes lasting months or even years—yikes! You don’t want your house to sit on the market for ages, so what can you do to sell your house fast? We have four great tips to help change the sign out front from 'For Sale' to 'Sold' in no time.

 

1. Price It Right


As with most things, price has a major impact on whether your house will sell fast or slow. The key is to price it just right. If you price it too high, your home won’t be competitive and may be easily overlooked. If priced too low, many buyers will wonder why and worry there may be hidden issues. Plus, you don’t want to offer a deal so good that you take a major loss from the sale.

Understanding your home’s value includes many factors, such as when it was built, the location, square footage, and amount of bedrooms/bathrooms. Use these online tools to help you estimate your home’s value.

 

2. Show It Off Well


They say a photo is worth a thousand words, but you could also say it’s worth just as much money! When it comes to selling your home quickly, photos can determine whether someone takes interest in your home.

Take clear, in-focus, bright photos, and lots of them! The more details you can show, the more opportunity you have to peak a buyer’s interest. Hiring a professional photographer is a smart idea, but not a necessity. If you’re taking photos yourself, learn how to take better real estate photos.

 

3. Depersonalize


Potential buyers want to be able to imagine themselves in the home when they attend a showing. That’s hard to do if there is lots of clutter, photos and personal items strewn throughout the house. Take some time to do a cleanse of your home and remove as much “excess” as you can. This includes:

  • Clearing off the fridge 
  • Removing toys
  • Taking down photographs
  • Placing counter appliances in cabinets 
  • Storing makeup and bathroom products 
  • Partially (or completely) emptying closets

 

4. Do Some Small Projects


You’d be amazed how a few small projects can speed up the sale of your home. Simple things, such as repainting walls, updating fixtures and adding some landscaping can do wonders for your home. These small upgrades won’t cost much and they will increase your home’s appeal. Remember: first impressions are everything in home sales!

Armed with these tips, you’ll be able to sell your home fast and stress less throughout the process. Do you have other tips on how to sell a home fast? Share them in a comment below!
