Top Five Low-Cost Ways to Sell Your Home Quickly
Now you know the best time to list your home for a quick sale, here are the top five low-cost ways for selling your house fast.
1. Light the Way
When someone walks into a home listed for sale, they typically want to see a brightly lit area to set the mood. Throw open your curtains, blinds, and if warm, open the windows a touch for some fresh air. Doing this simple thing can make a huge difference in someone’s mood, especially if they’ve been out looking at several homes and are tired.
2. Depersonalize Your Home
To allow potential homeowners to see a house as a home–for them–you must remove all your family photos and memorabilia. Remove any kid’s artwork, religious items, or anything else that isn’t neutral territory. This also goes for any sports memorabilia, figurines, or kid’s toys that keep the focus on your family and not theirs.
3. Price it Right
Now is not the time to throw out a listing price and hope it sticks, whether high or low. If you price your home too high, chances are you won’t get much interest. Price it too low, and people will wonder what’s wrong with it. Look at other similar homes in your area for sale and use that to determine the value of your own home. Staying somewhere in the middle is safe. If in doubt, talk to an expert or have your home appraised.
4. Keep Your Home Available
Long gone are the days of open houses, where multiple people can see your home simultaneously. Nowadays, people want to see a virtual tour online before even stepping foot inside your home. They want to see a home on their schedule, which typically includes weekends. If you make your house available anytime, prospective buyers are more likely to view it. Take note that you’re ready to leave quickly when someone comes.
5. Spread the Word
Tell your neighbors you’re selling and to spread the word. Also, post your listing on social media; your agent will usually do the same. Talk to co-workers and extended family members. Share your news on Facebook neighborhood groups and Instagram that showcases photos of your home and use hashtags to target potential buyers.
