When selling a house, you need to do it fast - even if your timeframe isn’t urgent.
The longer a property sits on the market, the less desirable it seems and less valuable it becomes. This leads to fewer showings, less activity, and lower offers.
So, if you’re selling your home you need to do it quickly. To accomplish that, you need to be smart and you need to have an effective plan in place.
Our team sells a home every 4 hours, so we know what it takes to generate a successful sale. Here’s our advice on the fastest way to sell a house. Follow these 4 steps if you’re looking to sell not only quickly, but also for top dollar.
1. Price it Right
89% OF YOUR SHOWINGS WILL BE IN THE FIRST 3 WEEKS
Competitive and strategic pricing is vital to the sale of your home. If a home is priced too high, then it will sit on the market and buyers will view it as stale, which will make it sit even longer. A competitively priced home is more likely to generate multiple offers, which may result in a higher closing price.
2. Be the Best Home on the Block
YOU NEVER GET A SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION
When selling a home, appearance is everything. Statistics show that 95% of staged homes sell in 11 days or less, for 17% more money. A home stager can show you how to make your home look beautiful and appeal to today’s buyers. Remember, the way you live in your home and the way you market and sell your home are two very different things.
Staged homes sell faster and for more money, which is why we have an in-house staging division comprised of certified home stagers ready to help make your home the best on the block. When you sell your house with our team, we provide a complimentary staging consultation. Our stager will meet you at your home and tour the house room by room, and then send a detailed report of recommendations for your home.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression to buyers - and nowadays most first impressions don’t occur in person; they take place on the internet when buyers are viewing your online listing. This is why professional photography is also extremely important. People won’t view your home - let alone buy it - if they aren’t intrigued by the listing photos.
