5 Tips to Help You Sell Your Home Fast!

Are you getting ready to sell your home? Whether upgrading to a larger home, downsizing, or moving to a new city for better work opportunities or lifestyle changes, you might find yourself with the need to sell your current home. Here are 5 sure-fire tips that will help you sell your home faster!


Find a good real estate agent

Real estate agents are licensed to sell homes, and they go through an entire training process to help them do this successfully. Finding a good agent rather than trying to sell a home yourself may cost you a 4-6% commission fee, but will help you sell it faster, and probably for a better price, too. If you're not sure how to find a good real estate agent, here are some tips:

  • Ask friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors for recommendations

  • Do online research for good real estate agents in your area

  • Focus on their experience and qualifications

  • Do they have local knowledge about things like your neighborhood and market trends?

  • Make sure they're going to be attentive and available to you, especially when you need them most


Find the right price point

Your real estate agent will help you determine the best price for your home based on other homes similar to yours in the area. Using their industry knowledge, access to comparative home values in your neighborhood, as well as your home's appraised value, they will be able to provide valuable information that will steer you in the right direction when determining the asking price for your home. Pricing your home too high can turn away a lot of potential buyers and pricing it too low can leave you missing out on money people would have paid.


Get your home ready

There are a variety of things you can and should do to get your home ready to impress potential buyers. This includes things like:

  • Cleaning up the outside of your home to increase your curb appeal

  • Deep clean, declutter, and organize

  • Make necessary repairs around your home

  • Depersonalize your home

  • Stage the home - get rid of your furniture and allow a stager to come in and highlight the best aspects of your home

Just making your home look nicer can attract even more potential buyers and help them see themselves living in this home rather than you! Additionally, avoiding necessary repairs can turn buyers away that aren't looking for homes that they need to fix up and renovate.


Get professional photos taken

Unless you're a professional photographer, trying to take pictures of your home yourself to put online can make you miss out on a whole host of potential buyers. A professional can take photos that are going to appeal to people looking for homes online by making yours look beautiful, bright, and spacious. Zillow also notes that "77 percent of recent buyers said that viewing professional photos was extremely, very or somewhat important to their home-buying decision."


Make it a good deal

If you really want to sell your home quickly, you can try to make it the best deal possible for your buyer. Ways that you can do this include:

  • Covering the closing costs for the buyer

  • Be accommodating to your buyer's closing date and when they want to move in

  • Say "yes" to inspections

  • Take care of any of the concerns that the buyer has about the home


In conclusion

When you're ready to sell your home, most people want to sell it fast. The best way to do this is to make sure your home is what someone else is going to want and make sure they can actually see it, too! This might require some time and investment on your end to deal with the repairs that need to be done and hire the right people to help you sell your home.
