In our nearly a decade as real estate investors at Checks for Keys, “how to sell my house fast” is the mantra of every homeowner who consults us. The tips that we share with them essentially covers three elements that put their home sale on the fast lane. These elements include: the appearance of the house, pricing the property, and the marketing mix.
Let’s break these down to give you a brief overview of the essentials to sell house fast.
Improve House Appearance
Inside your house, try to create an atmosphere in which prospective buyers can imagine themselves living in. This means, not only a thorough cleanup and removing your personal items, but also storing them somewhere else, like a storage area. It is likely potential buyers will stumble upon the clutter touring your home if you place them in the attic or your basement.
Making your home look impressive also entails prepping up your property’s curb appeal, as well as sprucing up your backyard and garden. Make your porch look inviting too, ensuring that it is clean with a clean doormat, potted plants and appropriate furniture if space allows. Hire a professional in-home stager if you’re not up to this basic task of making your home market-ready and primed to sell house fast.
Price House Right
With the love you likely have for your home, it is easy to overprice and not be objective when making this decision on price. Especially with all the time and effort you’ve spent prepping it up for sale. The best approach to avoiding this common mistake among sellers is to estimate your house’s price based on the market value of comparable property listings that were sold in your neighborhood.
Online sales listings, as well as competent professional guidance, would help in this all-important element that also sets the tempo to sell your house fast. You’d be a step ahead in this regard, if you consider selling to an investor. At Checks for Keys, we can quote the fair market value of a property after just a quick walkthrough of any residence, market-ready or not.
Broaden Marketing Reach
Use all media available to broaden market exposure for the sale of your home. Do not rely solely on traditional selling approaches, such as via a broker or MLS listing. Word-of-mouth can help too through friends and relatives. Tap into non-traditional means such as the internet and social media to reach as many buyers as possible.
As important, consider real estate investors, especially if your listing is not getting any attention from serious buyers on the market. With Checks for Keys, you can skip the time-consuming and costly efforts to make your house market-ready.
We buy houses in any condition and can close a deal as quick as one week. Our team of professionals have a well-prepared program to help to quickly expedite a sale, starting from our home walkthrough and up to cash payment delivery at closing.
