Things You Can Do To Sell Your House Fast! When considering selling your home, Good As New Real Estate Solutions recommends the following things to do:
Use An Agent You Are Comfortable With: To complete a successful sale, you need to find the right agent to represent you in selling your property. Don’t be afraid to ask them how well they know the area and how they intend to market the property. The goal is to get the property sold at the highest price possible. When meeting with your agent it is important that you feel comfortable with them and try to established a good rapport. Making sure that the agent is clear on your expectations.
List At The Right Price: One of the most important things you can do to procure a quick sale is to list at the right price. Not only will this help you sell quickly but it can also help you sell for the best price. Buyers and real estate agents are often influenced by the initial listing price. Your agent will be able to assist you in determining the best sell price for your home.
Perfect Conditions Every Showing: Start with the exterior of the home. For as long as your home is on the market, you need to constantly update your curb appeal. You can’t have overgrown shrubs, discolored grass or any obstruction such as trash bins in front of house. The first impression of the interior of the home should be immaculate. Always prep the house for a pleasant smell for all those that walk through; baking cookies always works and soothes the buyers emotions. If the house is vacant, you need to stay on top of the temperature. With the weather warming, the house shouldn’t be too hot. First impressions are critical with every buyer. Make sure the property is perfect every time you show it.
Accept The Right Offer: It is important not to be tempted to take the highest offer. Price will always be a strong consideration but there is more to an offer than price. Make sure you verify their finances, confirm a good closing date and double check those contingencies for short term on holding your home under contract. This will help when you accept an offer that ultimately doesn’t close. This could force you to start the process all over again. Always review the pre-qualification letter with your real estate agent. Look at the type of loan they submit and the down payment. From there, you need to review the contract line by line. Are they asking for contingencies that are excessive or unreasonable? Are they looking for a credit or to keep certain items in the property? If the buyer is difficult when submitting an offer, odds are, they will be throughout the process. Only you, as the seller, knows what the final number is that you will accept. The right offer is usually the one that ends up closing in the easiest possible manner.
Selling your home fast can be confusing and overwhelming at times. Real estate markets change all the time and it is important to do everything right to get the highest possible price.
