Whether you're moving for a new job, itching to move into your dream home or simply in a hurry to get your home sold, there are a few hints and tips to make sure your home is sold faster.
-Price it right. Work with your agent to find a price that is attractive to buyers. If you are really in a hurry, you may be tempted to accept the first offer that comes along. Make sure you plan ahead of time the lowest price you will accept so you don't end up making a rushed decision you'll regret later.
-Staging. Keep your home clean and free from clutter. Make sure the yard and landscaping are also in good order. The more attractive your home appears to buyers, the faster you will get offers. If needed, hire some help. Professional cleaning or staging services can make a huge difference when you don't have time to do it all yourself.
-Be Flexible. If interested home buyers can never get into your home to see it, they'll never make an offer. Be ready for visitors to come check out the home at any time of day. Make a plan of where you will go and what you will do if someone calls last-minute to come look at the home. Buyers will feel more comfortable to view the home when you aren't in it.
-Be Photogenic. Or your home should be at least. More often than not, people start their home search online. You want to make sure your home is well represented on the internet. The photos should capture the very best features of the home and entice people to want to see it in person.
-Ask for Help. Let your real estate agent know that you are in a hurry to sell. They will work with you to create an action plan.
