Selling your home may not be going as simply as you want. Or as quickly as you would like. So here’s a few tips to help you get your home sold, and sold fast:
Tips to Sell Your Home Quickly
- Homes which are staged can sell for up to 17% more and in much less time. Remember, the way you live in your home and the way it is staged to be attractive to a buyer are two different things. Most of us have a hard time living in a staged home. Just remember it’s temporary and the sooner your home is sold the sooner you can get back to really living in your home.
- Remember that your home is a product. That means marketing it to the right audience. A townhome is going to appeal to a different buyer than a large sprawling home in the country.
- Avoid the mindset that every room has a narrow niche purpose. A guest room could be a hobby room or an office space. Simple furniture and accessory placement can convey the different purposes a room can serve. At the same time avoid a cluttered look.
- Don’t skimp on staging. Yes, maybe we’re not psychologists and don’t really understand why staged homes look better subconsciously. But they do. So if you’re not sure how to get your home looking like a model home, hire a competent stager.
And always remember that your listing agent is a great resource. Turn to them for help with staging or anytime you are stressed with the selling process. Remember to check our blog often for more real estate tips whether you’re interested in selling or buying.
