4 Tips To Sell Your Home Quickly

4 Tips To Sell Your Home Quickly

There are few better feelings than finding the perfect home to buy. However, before you start planning your housewarming party and thinking about design, you must sell your old house. At Perry Homes, we have developed a list of tips to help you get your house off the market in no time at all.

Make Your Home Immaculate

First impressions are incredibly important when trying to sell your home and most buyers will not settle for anything less than perfectly clean. Before any individuals step foot in your home, make sure that you do a complete deep clean of the house, including both the indoors and outdoors. Make sure your home stays this way throughout the entire showing process, as it does not take long for clutter to reappear.

Price Your Home Correctly

Even if you go through all the trouble of making your home look as beautiful as possible, you will not have any buyers with a price too high. Many sellers believe that they need to start the price high in order to have the upper hand in negotiations, but that is not the case. Buyers and agents may assume that sellers with skyrocketing prices are not serious about selling or that they are unwilling to negotiate to a more reasonable offer. Bring in an appraiser to look at your home and keep an eye on other, similar homes in your neighborhood that are selling or have recently sold to get a good estimate of what the value of your home is. When it comes time to actually put your home on the market, a good rule of thumb is to set your selling price five to ten percent above the market price, as this will often end with an offer close to your home’s true value.

Make Your Listing Seen

Be sure that your home is available to be seen on every reputable online platform available. Websites such as Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com are a must, as these are very high traffic websites with trustworthy sellers and buyers. It is also a good idea to showcase your home on social media, as these growing platforms are seen by huge numbers of people every day. Regardless of where your listing is shown, it should have the price, neighborhood, and amenities clearly marked. Remember to also feature high-quality pictures of the entirety of the home, as listings with few or grainy pictures will not appear trustworthy to potential buyers.

Be Flexible With Showtimes

While it may seem ideal for your walkthroughs to occur when you are already out of the house, you must remember that many of your potential buyers are busy during the day and could find it difficult to leave their obligations to view your home. Your best chance at getting an offer involves being flexible with when you show your home. While it may seem inconvenient to have showings during the evening or on the weekend, it will allow more potential buyers to see your home, leading to more serious offers.
