If you are hoping to sell your home with a quick turnaround time, you can make it happen. If you can be flexible and do a little work on your end, you can increase the chances that your home will sell. Here are four ways to get your home ready to sell quickly.
1. Move Out and Stage Your Home
Staging your home will let buyers know that moving in can be immediate once closing occurs. Sometimes owner-occupied homes can scare away potential buyers because you might need more lead time to move out. Real estate agents will also be able to show your home day and night which will bring in more potential buyers.
2. Make Your Home Move-In Ready
If there are areas of your home that scream ‘fixer upper’ that would be easy to remedy, it is a good idea to do so. Some potential home buyers want a home that is move-in ready so that they don’t have to deal with renovations. Even if items in your home are older, as long as appliances and the overall features of your home are functional this can make a difference.
3. Pick the Right Season
If you can be flexible on the time of year that you are selling, you will have better luck in the spring and summer months. If you want to turn your home around quickly because you will be renting while your home is staged, the time of year can make a dramatic difference. Homes look better when the sun is out and landscapes are green. Families also look during the spring and summer in order to be settled for the following school year.
4. The Right Advertising
Once your home is listed, it is worth inputting your home into a search engine and ensure it is on all major real estate sites. Photos are important so that those looking online can get a feel for your home before they see it in person. A website dedicated to your home will bring in interest and will showcase your home in a better light. Check with your realtor about setting up additional advertising that can be linked to major real estate sites.
The limbo of having your home on the market can be stressful. If you don’t want to have a drawn out selling process, taking the advice of your realtor (like those at Century 21 Reward Realty) is important as well. If you can put some work into your home selling efforts ahead of time, your home should garner more interest and hopefully bring in offers quickly.read more
