Parting ways with a property is never easy. There's so much to worry about before you even contact an agent. So where do you start? In Order to help alleviate some of the stress, here are 7 tips to sell your home fast and at top dollar!
1. Get Your Proper Home Value
Sellers often think they should start the asking price high then work their way down. This can actually result in a slower sale, and sometimes at a lower price. If the Price is too high, both agents and homebuyers will stay away! Most will assume you are unwilling to negotiate or that you're not serious about selling.
2. Enhance your "Curb Appeal"
This could mean anything from power washing your driveway, to planting some fresh flowers, or maybe even replacing your mailbox. The main goal is to update the outward appearance of the home in order to be more appealing to a range of buyers or agents.
3. Update Interior
A Fresh coat of paint or new cabinets are not the only ways to update the appearance of the interior. Something as simple as replacing light fixtures with updated ones, or adding new door handles are a quick and cheap way to update the appearance of your interior.
4. Clean and Depersonalize
The fewer things there are in the home, the larger it will look. This is very appealing to some buyers, but it also gives the agent space to stage your home, so that a larger variety of buyers will be interested. most people want to see themselves living in a home before purchasing. Staging is one thing to help with that vision!
Staging is one of the most important tips for selling your home fast. It helps the buyer visualize themselves in living in your home, which will speed up the decision process on their end. Professional Stagers are expensive, its best to let your realtor handle the staging.
6. Make The Property Easy To Show
