How To Make Selling Your Home Easy!
Updated: Oct 23, 2022
Selling a home can be naturally easy in a seller’s market, but what if you’re under a time crunch or in a tough market? Luckily, there are tactics you can use to make the process easier & quite possibly receive higher offers on your home. From preparing the home itself to listing & promoting, here are 6 tactics you can use to Make Selling Your Home Easy!
Declutter & Repairs
The first step to preparing your home for sale is the clean-up & fixing process. Decluttering your home helps show off the actual size of the home & provides the buyer the opportunity to envision their day-to-day life. Sellers who make necessary repairs & touch-ups will often appeal to more buyers as the quality of the home is an important factor in the buying decision.
Depersonalize & Stage
When a buyer is searching for a home, they are trying to visualize their future in the new living space. A home that portrays a blank canvas makes it easy for the buyers to do so, removing personal items & bold furniture is the way to go. To really take your buyers' breath away, consider hiring a professional stager to bring a fresh look to your home. Thoughtful staging & a depersonalized home help to paint the picture for the buyer & will make selling your home easy!
Strategize Your Listing
When you decide to list your home, you can choose between For Sale by Owner, Hiring an Agent, and some alternatives, such as an auction or selling to an investor. If you’re looking to sell your home fast, having a trusted professional to work with will help you navigate the piles of paperwork & the negotiations.
Price to Sell & Time the Sale
Pricing & Timing are very important factors in how fast you can sell your home. Overpricing can easily lead to more time on the market while Underpricing could cause an increase in interests (but also could lead to buyer’s remorse). Knowing the competition in your market will help you find the right price & knowing the price points buyers are searching for can also be valuable. Although spring & summer are typically the best time of year to sell, more homes on the market means buyers can be pickier with all the options. Ask your agent when they think is best to list & what the competition is looking like so you can price your home to sell quickly!
Prepare Your Listing
With the digital world here to stay, sellers can find a lot of value from being thoughtful in the listing. From high-quality images to hand-crafted descriptions, taking the time to highlight all the great features will attract the most motivated buyers by showing off the full value of the home. With the focus on safe buying & selling experiences, consider hiring a professional photographer who offers 3D Virtual Tours.
Promote & Be Flexible with Showings
You’ve listed your home for sale after preparing it to get the best offers & sell quickly, so what should you do next? Well, now you can share the listing on social media & begin hosting tours! As buyers shop the market, being flexible with showings & hosting open houses will give the seller an edge over the competition. Sellers and their agents can really generate some hype about the home by promoting it on social media & telling everybody they know (or maybe just a couple). The more people who know your home is for sale the more likely you are to receive great offers & sell your home quickly!
Share Your Tips
Along with preparing the home for sale, sellers who wish to close their home quickly should take the time to strategize the listing. Decluttering, depersonalizing, making repairs & thoughtfully staging can help you get the best price for your home. Developing a high-quality listing & promoting the links, pics, etc. can truly Make Selling Your Home Easy!
