If you’re looking to upgrade or downgrade and thinking about putting your property on the market, then it’s important to do everything you can to make it appealing to attract as many buyers as you can.
The more interest you can get, the quicker the property will likely sell – ideally with as many bidders as possible.
Here are four ways to sell your home faster.
In the real estate world, it’s said that if a home doesn’t sell within 30 days, then it’s likely priced too high.
Ultimately, the market will give you the best feedback. For a vendor, the best thing you can do is speak to a number of agents in your area who specialise in selling your type of property.
Local agents are on the pulse of the market in your area, and they know what a property is worth.
When you can get a clear idea of what its true value might be, then you can work with an agent to create the right marketing strategy. It’s about attracting buyers while also maximising how much can sell the property for.
It goes without saying that you need to present the property as well as you possibly can.
Most home buyers are looking for a property they can move into and live in with as little fuss as possible.
You want to clean out as much clutter as you can which will help make the property look more spacious and appealing. It will also help the property photograph well. If you don’t like your current furniture, you can even style the property differently to give it the very best chance of appealing to the broadest range of buyers.
When you sell a property it’s well worth taking care of any issues beforehand. If you don’t, you’re likely going to have to deal with them at some stage and by ignoring them, you could end up attracting fewer buyers.
The same thing goes for your garden and exterior. The first thing a would-be buyer sees is the front entrance and garden. This can be a make-or-break moment for most buyers and the more work you put into making it as appealing as possible, the better the result in many cases.
When trying to sell a property it’s important to get as many people through it as possible. Therefore, you need to be able to accommodate buyers as much as you can.
If you, or your tenants, are living in the property, it can be extremely challenging, and you’ll need to find a way to work with your sales agent to best manage the situation.
If possible, facilitate buyers coming through a property whenever suitable and also look at doing things like previews and pre-listing opens. This will help as you try and get as many people through your doors, while also gauging what the market is thinking about the asking price.
