Real Estate 101: Keys to a Quick Sale

If you are getting ready to put your home on the market, you want to be sure to do everything possible to help get the property sold quickly. After all, not only is a quick sell the more convenient option for you, but statistics have shown that homes that remain on the market for too long command a much lower selling price. Therefore, it is important to do everything possible to get the home to sell quickly.

When it comes to getting your home sold quickly, there are three primary things to keep in mind: presentation, pricing and accessibility. Clearly, the more presentable your home is to the potential buyer, the more likely the buyer is to make an offer. Therefore, you should do everything possible to make certain your home is in good shape while also highlighting its best features. This doesn’t mean you need to take on a major home improvement project. Rather, if something is broken, get it fixed before you put it on the market. A fresh layer of paint and a thorough cleaning will also make your home more appealing to potential buyers.

In addition to repairing those things that are worn or out broken in your home, presentation also includes making the home look inviting to the potential buyer. This process, which is known as staging, involves adding the little touches that help the potential buyer “see” him or herself living in the home. Things such as removing personal belongings and photographs, letting in as much light as possible so the home looks airy and fresh, and getting rid of clutter will all go a long way toward helping you sell your home more quickly.

Pricing is another important factor when it comes to getting a home sold. If it is a buyer’s market, you will need to price your home more competitively in order to get it sold. Resist the temptation to ask for a higher price so you have “bargaining room.” The only thing this will do is turn off those buyers who think your home is out of their price range or who simply aren’t interested in engaging in a significant amount of haggling.

Finally, accessibility is an essential component to selling a home quickly. Not too many people will purchase a home without having plenty of opportunity to explore every one of its nooks and crannies. Therefore, you need to make sure potential buyers can easily access your home whenever necessary. Otherwise, the potential buyer might become frustrated and will simply move on to the next home on the list.
