Secrets to Selling Fast

8/20/2015

If you’re a homeowner and you need to move, you probably want to sell your house as quickly as possible. Here are some tips to make the process painless: 

  • Price it right. Don’t start high and drop the price later. Shave 15 to 20 percent off of the appraisal price.
  • Give it a makeover. Use quick updates on the interior and exterior to increase a buyer’s first impression.
  • Don’t upgrade too much. Visual updates may be necessary, but don’t invest too much money in a house you are trying to sell.
  • Maximize light. Lighter curtains and higher wattage light bulbs help. Before a showing, turn on all the lights so prospective buyers enter a welcoming home.
  • Organize, organize, organize. Get rid of excess clutter and organize even closed spaces like closets and cabinets.
  • Depersonalize. It may be counter-intuitive, but remove all of your personal family pictures and quirky decor. Prospective buyers should be able to picture themselves in your space.
  • Remove your animals. Try to remove all evidence of your pets during showings.
  • Make your home available. Be ready to do showings at any time in order to maximize home views.
  • List it online. Work with your realtor and list your home on all major sites using quality pictures and neighborhood information.
