Have you decided to start the new year in a new home in a new city? New Year calls for new beginnings and a new home is a wonderful way to celebrate the new time. But that also means selling off your old home fast. It usually takes months to sell off a property especially in the contemporary declining realty market. But here are some cool tips that will pay when you are asking how to sell my house fast.
Enhance curb appeal
The first thing that a potential buyer notices about your property is its exterior part. If it’s not appealing enough, buyers won’t have the heart to delve further. So, invest in improving the curb appeal of the house. Clean your lawn, trim the shrubs, shape hedges and refresh mulch. Then, if you haven’t painted your home for a while, get a fresh coat for the home exterior.
Get rid of clutter
You have to create an inviting atmosphere for the buyers so that they are inspired to look further into your rooms. It’s great if you can get a fresh coat for your rooms as well. But, if not- at least put efforts to maintain a spick & span environment. The first thing is to remove unnecessary clutter from your home. Make 2 lists- one for things you will never need and another for stuff you will need some time but not always. For the first list, see if you can sell or donate them before the first potential buyer visits. For the second list, get a sizeable storage unit where you can store all such stuff. You can place the storage unit in your garage or closet. No matter wherever you place it, make sure to keep things organized.
Sell house to home buyer companies
You can sell your house faster through a house buyer company than through a real estate agent. The home buyer companies buy homes in any condition, no matter how dilapidated the house is. You can choose the closing date and the buyer company will buy with full cash in just 7 days. Moreover, when you sell through a buyer company, you don’t have to pay any commission or closing cost. You won’t even need to spend time and money on repair. Your home buyer company will itself carry the repair works before selling it to another buyer.
Use bright light
A poorly lit home cannot appeal to buyers no matter how beautiful the house is. So, use high wattage light bulb when a prospective buyer visits your home. Keep the windows open (in daytime) and let your home bask in glory under natural light.
Spread the word
Use your social media accounts to spread the word. Request your family and friends to get the word out among their groups and close circles. Just make sure to get your home photographed by a pro home stager. As a pro stager will perceive the property from the perspective of a buyer, he will be able to identify the strengths and limitations of your home.
Last but not the least, make sure to set a realistic and fair selling price, in respect to the local market condition and overall value of your home.
