There are few certainties in this world, but there are surefire ways to sell your property faster regardless of market conditions. These strategies have been proven time and time again. So, if you’re thinking of selling this year, take a good look at these recommendations.
1. Clean and tidy. Making your home “guest ready” is the easiest way to ensure buyers are impressed during a viewing.
2. Declutter. The more spacious your home looks, the more impressive it will be to buyers. You can box items and give them away, sell them or put them in storage.
3. Price it right. Deciding on the right listing price is crucial. If it’s too high, you’ll discourage otherwise qualified buyers from seeing your home. If it’s too low, you might send the wrong message to the marketplace.
4. Optimize curb appeal. The better your home looks from the street, the more buyers will become interested. Curb appeal is important because it’s the first impression a buyer sees, and that impression lasts.
5. Stage your home. You don’t necessarily need to replace all the furniture. However, studies consistently confirm that a well staged home sells significantly faster than a comparable unstaged property.
6. Leverage the latest marketing and selling tactics. You want the marketing of your home to bring in the most qualified and interested buyers. You then want sales strategies that turn those buyers into offers and negotiation skills to turn the right offer into a sale.
Keep these proven strategies in mind when putting your home up for sale.
