Pro Tips to Sell Your Home Fast
Follow these five tips to give yourself the best chance of selling your house fast.
1. De-Clutter Your Home
You may have guessed this one on your own, but clutter isn’t great for keeping prospective buyers’ eyes on the ultimate prize: your home. Remove personal items and toys from your home, including any family photos. Rent a storage unit to store your extra belongings. During an open house, buyers need to be able to picture themselves making their own memories within those walls. If there are pictures of other people floating around the house, it could make it more difficult for them to develop that emotional connection.
2. Invest in Home Staging Services
If you’re just ready to settle on a deal and move forward from this experience, consider hiring a professional to help you stage your home. An expert will know from experience what homes that sell look like on the inside.
3. Find the Right Agent
Do your research and find someone that really knows the area and the business. Look for a real estate agents with a successful track record. Is this person able to walk into your home and immediately pinpoint problem areas — as well as selling points?
In the age of social media and the internet, it’s always a good idea to check online reviews. Finding out what other people are saying is a great way to get an idea of someone’s track record. When it’s all said and done, try to find an agent you can get along with that understands your needs, but also has a great track record in areas of both testimony and numbers.
4. Make Small Upgrades
Now is not the time for a full-blown renovation, but there are small things you can do to improve the condition and appearance of your house that are fairly cheap to execute.
Change hardware on your cabinets for a fresh look or get a new sink for your kitchen or bathroom. Even incorporating fresh, coordinated linens, toothbrush holders, soap dispensers, and the like can do a lot to transform your space.
5. Add Some Curb Appeal
One of the most important aspects of selling your home is what we like to call curb appeal. If things are looking particularly bland or shabby as far as the outside of your home is concerned, potential buyers are unlikely to even want to look at the inside. Be sure to keep the exterior of your home looking as nice as possible. Keep hedges trimmed and consider power washing the outside of your home. Wash windows and doors, and add flowers, depending on the time of year.
When you decide to sell your home, calling in the professionals is always a great way to take some of the strain and stress away. At Cami Jones & Company, we know how important it is to move on to the next journey of your life, and we are here to help.
