How to Sell Your Home Faster
It may be cold and snowy outside, but don’t let the winter blues get in the way of you selling your home! With the correct presentation, marketing, and pricing, you can expect an offer in no time – regardless of the season. Take a look at these four simple steps to sell your home faster!
1. Hire the Right Agent: When searching for a real estate agent, consider their track record of sales that proves they know how to sell your home fast. You want an agent who is familiar with your neighbourhood and understands what potential buyers will love and hate. Your agent is responsible for promoting your home, so they need to be knowledgeable of both the property and the market.
2. Stage & Photograph Your Home: A buyer’s first impression of the property will be the listing photos and therefore it’s vital that they highlight the strengths and soften the flaws of your home. With impressive photos, potential buyers will be encouraged to call for a showing.
3. Amp Up the Curb Appeal: Typically, the exterior of your home is the first thing a buyer sees – both on listing sites and in person. If it doesn’t look good, it’s unlikely a buyer will be interested taking a look at the inside. Tidy up your yard, pressure-wash your home and driveway, and consider adding a fresh coat of paint to your trim and shutters. You want your home to feel welcoming!
4. Promote Your Home Yourself: Don’t hesitate to get the word out about your home yourself – it doesn’t have to be only up to your agent! You can market your home on your personal social media accounts and send the listing page to family and friends. You never know which friend of a friend or distant relative may be looking to move!
