Need to sell your house fast?
We can help.
There is a wide range of time that it takes for a house to sell. It can take as little as seven days, seven months, or even longer. The reason for this is that there are lots of factors that go into the home selling process, many of which the seller has no control over. Take your neighborhood for example. You can improve your own house, but the ones around you are beyond your control.
Here are some home selling strategies that you can control.
Find the Best Real Estate Agent in Scottsdale
Being prudent about who you select to be your real estate agent will pay dividends. Too many people perform a simple search online or take an acquaintance’s first recommendation.
This strategy might work out sometimes, but not always.
It’s important to realize that your real estate agent works for you (they get commission after all), so you want someone who will stay dedicated to getting you the highest value possible for your house. On the flip side of the coin, you don’t want someone who requests unrealistic values for your home and never gets anyone to “bite”.
Take your time to interview the best agent for the job. Do a little of research, both online and in person if possible. Do you want an agent with a proven marketing plan, or someone who will list your house on a few sites and then go to work for other clients until it’s time for them to get their commission check?
Prepare for Showings
Making a good first impression on a buyer is paramount if you want to sell your home fast. If your house doesn’t have any “wow” factor then chances are the buyer will look elsewhere.
You might be thinking to yourself, “But my house isn’t impressive.” That’s okay.
To maximize your house’s appeal for showings, you should be putting in the time to make it look nice. This means ensuring that everything in the house is clean, especially the most trafficked areas. Remove all dust, clutter, or other eyesores on your property. Also, if you have a pet it’s a good idea to keep them out of the way so that they don’t make your guests feel unwelcome in any way. Cat hair on the couch, barking, lingering smells all must be avoided. You might not think that buyers will notice such small details, but when attending a house showing buyers are typically on high alert for any potential issues with the property.
