No matter what type of market you live in, there are 4 best tricks to sell your house fast which have been proven to work over and over. If you get these things right, you are sure to be well on the way to having a “sold” sign in your front yard.
1. Hire the best real estate agent you can afford, making sure you research carefully how they market their listings so you’ll know what to expect. There are lots of real estate agents who are hungry for business and who may offer to cut their commission just to get your listing, but stop and think if you want an agent so willing to sacrifice top dollar for themselves trying to negotiate the selling price on your house.
2. Price your house competitively. This does not mean that you can be considered competitive simply because there are three other houses more expensive than yours within five miles of your home. Competitive means that you are pricing to win, because selling your home is a competition where the prize is the buyer. Ready, willing, and able buyers can only buy one of the available houses on the market that match their criteria.
3. Spruce up your curb appeal. It doesn’t matter how beautiful your living room is or that you just spent $20,000 upgrading your kitchen if the front of your house doesn’t sell buyers on why they should stop and look further. Curb appeal matters and smart sellers who sell fast generally have superior curb appeal.
4. Keep your house clean, uncluttered and free of odors every single day it is on the market. There really are serious buyers who will pull up in front of your house at 2:00pm wanting to see it now. Clean homes that are free of odors (this includes everything from cooking broccoli to wet dogs) really do appeal to more people than homes that smell funky.
