Tips To Sell Your Home Quickly

Sellers typically want their home to sell as quickly as possible and for top dollar. There are a few steps sellers can take in order to ensure their home is desirable to buyers.

1. Make buyers feel at home

Declutter, Declutter, Declutter! Pack away all personal items like pictures, awards, and sentimental belongings. When buyers are able to envision themselves living in the home, the home is likely to sell faster.

According to the Profile of Home Staging by the National Association of Realtors,

“83% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.”

Not only will your house spend less time on the market, but the same report mentioned that,

“One-quarter of buyers’ agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered between 1 – 5%, compared to other similar homes on the market that were not staged.”

2. Keep it organized & smelling lovely!

Since you took the time to declutter, keep it organized! Before the buyers show up, pick up toys, make the bed, and put away clean dishes. 

Buyers view multiple homes in a single day when deciding to purchase; make your house stand out with a fabulous smell. A buyer WILL remember the smell of your home! Baking cookies fresh from the oven or a scented candle is a great way for your house to stand out in the buyer's mind!

3. Give buyers full access

One of the top four elements when selling your home is ACCESS! If your home is available anytime, that opens up more opportunity to find a buyer right away. Some buyers, especially those relocating, don’t have much time available. If they cannot get into the house, they will move on to the next one.

4. Price it right

As we mentioned at the beginning, more inventory coming into the market guarantees there will be some competition. You want to make sure your home is noticed. The key to selling your house quickly is pricing it correctly. That way, your home will be seen by the greatest number of buyers.
