Get advice from an experienced and good real estate agent
Selling and buying property is what real estate agents do and are best at. A good and experienced agent will know the market and thus he will know your house’s potential price. Getting a piece of advice from the expert will help decide the best price that is high as well as suitable for the market.
Rightly price the property
Over-priced property is what usually draws away the buyers. Don’t let your ego come in the way of pricing. This does not mean that one should stay away from the pricing discussions. Choose a price that is not way too much. Keep it high but in limits that will motivate a buyer to buy the place.
Offer appealing incentives
A buyer is always confused among the last options he has made and requires a little push to make the right action. Buyers can be encouraged to buy the house by offering appealing incentives such as lowering down the interest rate on the buyer’s loan, paying for any inspections and repairs for a fixed time duration, and providing allowances for upgrading the house after the deal is closed. This helps with a quick and high priced sale.
Fix everything to make the house look tip top
Fixing the house before setting it up for sale is very crucial. The first impression is the last impression thus the appearance of the house must be eye-catching. Things that need to be repaired include anything that is broken on the exterior, peeling paints, broken or worn-out tiles, dripping ceilings or even broken switchboards. Any such issue if left unchecked and removed may be eventually noticed by the buyer during the inspection and will lower down the price one way or the other.
Promote the sale on all major online portals
Just putting up a sales sign or giving an ad in the newspaper is not enough. Showcasing the house on online websites such as Zillow, Realtor.com or even Facebook promotes the place and helps to make the selling process quicker.
Sale the house at the right time
Timing is very important. Spring and summer seasons are considered to be the best times to sell a house. This also means that more houses will be on sale at this time and hence adds up to the competition. Make sure that the curb appeal is amped up and the buyers are compelled to buy and the house gets sold off quickly and for a high price.
Setting a house on sale for a more than it’s worth and quickly is not an easy task. Hence be active and be sure to implement the above-mentioned tips.
