You are ready to sell your home. You want it to sell as quickly as possible. So how do you do it? I have some tips to get your home sold fast!
The first thing you need to do is to start thinking like a buyer. If you were to walk into your home right now, what would you think? Is your furniture arranged oddly? Do you have magazines and books stacked on tables? Is everything tidy? Do your personal items take away from the charm of your home? The key is to streamline your home as much as possible. Only leave out the essentials and the least amount of personal items as possible.
Make it move-in ready. Most buyers want the home to be ready to move into with minimal, if any, alterations. Any chipped paint, fix it. Any brightly painted rooms, paint them a neutral color. Nail holes in the walls, fix them. These small things could make the difference in a buyer purchasing your home or the one down the street.
Price, price, price! Price your home right and it will sell faster. Talk to your agent, understand the market and price it right!
Have a strong online presence. Potential buyers will look at your home online before they ever step foot into it. Talk to your agent about your online presence. Be sure to have good pictures, available information, appealing details and be in a variety of places. You want the buyer to want to see your home in person!
I hope these tips have helped. When you are ready to buy or sell, visit my website or call me direct Ken Couture, 702-610-6247.
