5 tips to help you sell your home faster

For all of you who might be interested in selling a home fast, here is a list of 5 points that we believe are crucial in this process.

Most probably, you don’t have time to spend researching the current housing market and thinking  how it’ll affect your home sale.

Of course, we can’t guarantee a quick sale, but adopting these simple tips definitely won’t hurt your chances of securing a buyer.

1. TIDY UP TO MAKE YOUR HOUSE STAND OUT

It may look obvious, but it’s very important to start cleaning, especially before taking any photo. This basically means clean from top to bottom in every room of the house, wipe down cabinets and drawers, remove any scuffs from the walls, give all kitchen appliances a once-over, clean air vents and your carpets, and then sweep, vacuum, or mop every corner of the house.

2. HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

First impressions are very important and need to be done right. It may feel like hiring a professional is a waste of money and simply use your smartphone camera. But a professional photographer has all the tools to capture the right lighting and make everything look brighter. Moreover, with a wide-angle lense, the entire room will fit in the photo.

3. STAGE YOUR HOUSE

The extra mile beyond cleaning is considering having your house staged, a way of decorating it so it’s more attractive to buyers. Staging typically takes from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the availability of rental furniture, the movers, and the installers.

4. MAKE YOUR HOME AVAILABLE FOR SHOWINGS

Once everything is set up, get ready to be flexible and spend a lot of time away from your home so buyers and real estate agents can view the property comfortably— without you or your pets wandering around the halls.

5. CHOOSE THE RIGHT PRICE

Staging and marketing your home are important components, but at the end of the day, the amount of money you’re asking buyers to pay could be what makes the deal happen. To this regard, it is also very important to consult a professional real estate agency that  will help you decide on the right price for your home by looking at a variety of factors, such as your house’s age, any updates, square footage, and district.
