In today’s real estate market, many people are finding that their homes aren’t selling very quickly. Your home may be on the market for a few days (a friend recently sold her home within 48 hours of it being listed), whereas others have had their homes listed for months and sometimes years.
You are probably wondering how this happens! There are many things that lead to a home selling quickly, and a home taking forever to be sold.
Below is what you should do if you want to sell your home quickly.
Price your home correctly.
You might try to price your home higher to see if it will sell at that price, but that’s not always a good idea. You should price your home at its market price.
If you price your home too high, then you are just selling the other homes around you because it makes the other homes look better.
Have great curb appeal.
You always want great curb appeal when you are trying to sell your home. You can do many things to improve your curb appeal:
- Clean up the outside of your home. This means picking up any trash, twigs, etc.
- Paint your home. If your home needs exterior painting, then you should try to do this.
- Grow grass. If you have mud and dead grass in your front yard, then you might want to change this.
- Grow flowers. This almost always helps!
- Power washing. Power wash anything that needs it!
Paint your home.
Not only do you want to paint your exterior, you also might want to paint your interior.
If all of your walls in your home are a neon pink, then it may be hard for future homeowners to fall in love with the home, even though it is an easy fix. Usually light cream colors or white are the best colors to paint the inside of your home.
Get professional pictures done.
I have looked at real estate online where I wonder if a child took the photos of the house. Professional photos go a long way, and can help you sell your home much quicker. Make sure good photos are taken that really show the positive aspects of your home.
Make sure your house is extremely clean.
This should be obvious, but always make sure your home is clean. Have it clean for the photos, and also whenever potential homebuyers stop by.
