10 tips for selling your home fast
After you’ve made the decision to move to a new home and community, it’s important to sell your existing home quickly, to avoid contingencies and the dreaded double mortgage payment. At the same time, you want to get the best price for your existing home.
From U.S. New and World Report, these 10 tips will help you set yourself up for a quick sale at the optimum price.
For starters, it’s important to price your home correctly from the start, since the first 30 days on the market always bring the best activity. If the price is too high, many buyers and real estate agents could stay away, assuming you’re not serious.
Because you never get a second chance to make a first impression, enhance curb appeal with flowers, a fresh coat of paint for the front door, and even a new mailbox. Prospective buyers form an opinion the instant they see your home – make it the best one possible.
Clean, declutter and de-personalize. It will help your home look larger and allow prospective buyers envision themselves living there. A professional deep cleaning is also recommended.
Stage the house to show each room’s function. If you have an odd room with no obvious role, stage it as a home office, hobby room or something else creative to help people see its value.
Other tips include making your property easier to show by having it ready for visitors with little notice, and leaving the home so they can move about and discuss it honestly.
