Don’t feel frustrated if you feel that you won’t be able to sell your house fast just because it’s not the peak season for real estate. With the right plan and strategy, you can sell your house at a good price.
Here are a few ideas from FasterHouse:
- Give it the right price tag. Don’t be fooled into pricing your property higher. Yes, you can take the price down later if it fails to sell at a high price, but such move also means that it will most likely stay on the market for a longer time. Buyers and agents often steer away from properties with a high asking price thinking that they seller is unwilling to negotiate or that they are not serious about selling.
- Amp up your curb appeal. First impressions last and the same applies when you’re selling a property. As such, make sure that you groom your house to its best. Do your landscaping, give your house a fresh coat, clean your driveway and the exteriors — basically make sure that your house looks its best. Upgrade and make the necessary repairs! Making your house look more inviting will encourage more buyers to take a closer look.
- Stage and depersonalize your house. You don’t want to walk into a house that you hope to buy and see another family already owning it. As such, do remove any family photos, collectibles, and any knick-knacks that you have lying around. A house for sale should be a blank canvas that can allow potential buyers imagine the space if it was their own.
Do stage your rooms to give potential buyers an idea of how they can use the space. This is particularly important for spaces where its use is not too clear. Give spare rooms a purpose so that your potential buyers can also imagine what can be done for them.
By following these simple tips, you will surely give you the edge you need to sell your property fast and at a good price.
