Tips for Selling Your Home

fast home sale concept of a man holding a small home and a key between his fingersNow that you have decided to sell your home, one concern can be sale time. This is the time your property spends on the market. The Brian Burds Home Selling Team can help make sure your home sells quickly. If you put your house up for sale, typically you are hoping for it sell quickly. While one week or even one month may be a bit too unrealistic, but a month or two is usually in people’s heads. What happens if your house is on the market for longer? What is it stays unsold for six months, or a year? This what no home seller wants. Such a long time on the market makes it difficult to maintain the property and can even make it harder to sell. The best time for your home to sell is usually the first three to five months it is put on sale. There are a few things you can do help make sure you home sells. The two best things to prepare for a fast home sale are first impressions and pricing.

First Impressions

Often, the first impression of the home will be the only one. Selling a home means making your house appealing. This all comes down to the first impression. The ‘hook’ for your home is what makes a sale. Chances are, if you do not impress the potential buyer within the hour tour, then the house will not sell. Making your house appealing is not difficult, it is basically making the house appealing. Some things that help this is an uncluttered home, clear counters, and empty looking closets. In addition to making the interior of your home look nice, you also want to spruce up the outside. Curb appeal is a big part of the first impression. When a person is coming up the driveway, what they see first is how they will think of the home. Having a neat lawn, and little to no weeds helps make the buyer feel like the house is in good condition.

Price High First

When you get ready to list your home on the market, always price it a bit higher than value. Later if the house fails to sell, you can lower it by bit. This way you have some leeway during negotiations. In addition to pricing, you want to make you home available. This means having open house and inviting people in to view the house. This exposure is very helpful in getting people interested in buying. This will then help with your pricing.

A Fast Home Sale is Possible

Selling your home can be a bit confusing and difficult to figure out. There are quite a few things to consider, besides worrying about how long it will take to sell. No one wants to have their house on the market for a long period of time. Not only is it a hassle to maintain an extra property, but it can also be a drain on your expenses. The Brian Burds Home Selling Team can help you sell your home in a timely fashion.
