Need to Sell Your Home Fast? Here’s How…
There are lots of reasons a homeowner might need to sell their home fast. Maybe they’re facing foreclosure or they’ve just found a new job and need to relocated ASAP. Perhaps they’ve even inherited a home and need to sell it quickly to avoid paying an additional mortgage.
Regardless of the reason why, it’s important for sellers to know how to sell their home quickly. Here are a few tips to help you do just that.
When putting a house on the market, the number 1 thing to keep in mind is that the vast majority of buyers want a home that is move-in ready. You may stumble across the occasional handyman who’s looking for a fixer upper, but most buyers (and especially first-time buyers) do NOT want that hassle.
And while it’s true that no home is “perfect”, here are a few things you can do to make your home more appealing to buyers so that it sells fast.
Clean It Up
Your home does not have to be spotless, but it should be cleaned as if you were expecting an important guest to come over. Vacuuming and dusting are the bare minimum, but you also pay attention to things like dirty clothes baskets and unmade beds. It may even be a smart investment to hire a professional cleaning crew to go over every nook and cranny.
This tip goes hand in hand with cleaning, but it’s something that frenzied home sellers will often forget. It’s true that buyers prefer homes that still have furniture in place compared to completely empty houses, but you should still take the time to declutter the main living areas (this is especially true if you’re in the middle of packing).
Hire a Photographer
First impressions are very important when selling a home and your home’s first impression will come from the photos buyers see online. Yes, pretty much everyone over the age of 2 has a fairly powerful camera built into their phone, but an iPhone and a selfie stick does not turn someone into a professional photographer. Hiring a photographer will cost you anywhere from $100-$200 but they’ll have the equipment and skills needed to truly capture the beauty of your home.
