4 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster

4 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster

Since June of last year, we have seen an increase in the inventory of homes for sale month per month. Every spring and summer, the inventory increases because people want to sell their home. For those with children, they may want to be in their new home for the beginning of the school year.

If you are one of those sellers, you may find these 4 tips helpful in getting your home sold more quickly.

1. Make buyers feel at home

Declutter your home! Pack away all personal items like pictures, awards, and sentimental belongings. Make them feel like they belong in this house! According to the Profile of Home Staging by the National Association of Realtors,

“83% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.”

Not only will your house spend less time on the market, but the same report mentioned that,

“One-quarter of buyers’ agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered between 1 – 5%, compared to other similar homes on the market that were not staged.”

2. Keep it organized

Since you took the time to declutter, keep it organized! Before the buyers show up, pick up toys, make the bed, and put away clean dishes. It is also a good idea to put out some cookies fresh from the oven or a scented candle. Buyers will remember the smell of your home! According to the same report, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms to stage in order to attract more buyers.

3. Give buyers full access

One of the top four elements when selling your home is access! If your home is available anytime, that opens up more opportunity to find a buyer right away. Some buyers, especially those relocating, don’t have much time available. If they cannot get into the house, they will move on to the next one.

4. Price it right

As we mentioned at the beginning, more inventory coming into the market guarantees there will be some competition. You want to make sure your home is noticed. The key to selling your house in 2019 is ensuring it is Priced to Sell Immediately (PTSI). That way, your home will be seen by the greatest amount of buyers and will sell at a great price before more competition comes to market!

Bottom Line

If you want to sell your house in the least amount of time at the best price with as little hassle as possible, a local real estate professional is a useful guide. Call them today to find out what you need to do to sell your home more quickly.

    I never knew the kitchen was one of the more important rooms to stage in order to attract more buyers! My husband was recently extended a job promotion, but it involves a last-minute move out of state. We want to sell our home before we go, if possible, so we don’t have to worry about it, so I’m glad I ran into your article about best staging it to do so. Hopefully we can find a buyer really quickly. Thanks for the tips!

    The points in the article are very similar to the ones my real estate agent friends speak about. One in particular likes to speak to home buyers a few months prior to putting a house on the market if possible so that the sellers have time to make any corrections needed to make the house sell fast but also mentally prepare them for what will take place once the house is on the market. Good article.

    Thank you for explaining how your home should be readily available for potential buyers to see at all times since many people have a limited amount of time to relocate. My brother is thinking about selling his house so that he can move closer to work in order to shorten his commute during the winter, but his living room tends to get dirty during the day when his son plays by himself. He should consider keeping his home in good condition so that he can sell it more quickly.

    It helps a lot when you explain the importance of having your house always readily available for buyers to see since some of them only have a limited amount of time. My brother has been having trouble selling his house since he lives in a remote area, but he would like to make sure that he can move out as soon as possible since he will be starting his new job next month. I think that finding a listing agent could help him find ways to attract more buyers.

    I’m glad you talked about how to sell a house easier. Recently, my wife and I talked about selling our home to buy another one. We’ve heard about mobile homes, and we think it’d be a good investment. That’s why we believe it’d be better to look for a real estate agent to help us out. We appreciate your tips on how a realtor will help you with your real estate procedures.
