No matter your situation when selling your home, your primary goal is to sell it faster. By working with a real estate investor, you’ll wind up selling in weeks, not months—and for more money. While it’s true that calling an investor is the quickest way to sell, we’ve compiled a few tips to help you sell faster.
It’s your home. If you choose to take the traditional route and sell on the housing market, you need a strategy. That strategy revolves around pricing.
By pricing your home appropriately for the market, you’ll attract more buyers. The key is to price reasonably—for yourself and the buyer.
It’s important to remember that selling a house on the market means hiring a realtor. That realtor will, of course, expect a large cut of the sale. You’re losing money.
Never underestimate curb appeal. Most say not to judge a book by its cover. The opposite happens with homes. Most buyers do judge a house by its exterior appearance. With that in mind, be sure to:
- Update the landscaping in the front yard
- Reseal your driveway
- Repaint the front door and garage door
- Upgrade exterior lighting
- Repaint the siding
- Conduct necessary repairs and renovations
There are two schools of thought when it comes to home repairs and renovations when selling a property. One school claims that by making these repairs, you’re investing in the home. The other says repairs are a waste of money.
In truth, repairs and renovations can be a waste of money. You don’t often see a substantial return for, say, a kitchen renovation. You’re attracting buyers, not their money.
