If you want to sell your house fast, you need to price it right from the start. Keep in mind that today’s home buyers are extremely savvy when it comes to market dynamics and have access to the same data as you do. Thus, listing too high out of the gate would cause potential buyers to walk out your door and move on to the next house.
In addition, pricing your house higher than the other houses in the neighborhood would result in more time on the market, and may force you to cut down the price to less than the estimated value. You wouldn’t want this to happen, would you?
You can also speed up your sale by making buyers fall in love with your house. There are many ways to do this. Consider the following suggestions:
- Give your house a thorough cleaning and keep it clutter-free. Keep your closets and counters free from clutter, and pay special attention to the entrance and the bathrooms. You need to make potential buyers visualize themselves living in your house and they cannot do that if they are distracted with all the clutter.
- Improve your curb appeal. Experts agree that improving curb appeal can increase your home’s value by up to 17%. You don’t even have to spend a lot of money to do this. Just add a little sod and some fertilizer to make your grass greener, add some low-maintenance native plants, and apply a fresh layer of paint to your exterior walls.
- Fix everything that’s broken. Consider getting a home inspection before listing your house, and get as many repairs done as possible. Keep in mind that most homebuyers don’t want a money pit.
