When you are ready to sell your home, of course you want it to sell fast. Your best route to success is with the help of a realtor. Aside from your local market conditions, there are three main components that impact a home sale. These components become even more important when you want to sell your home fast.
1. Price. Start with the right price from the beginning. If you want to sell fast, you must price it accordingly; slightly below the competition may get the buyers’ attention. Your real estate agent can help determine the best price for a quick sale with a plan that is also conducive to your own personal goals for the sale. As a Maryland, DC, and Virginia realtor, I can provide you access to a comparative market analysis to see homes that sold in your neighborhood and at what price. If you are curious of how your home measures up to the competition, I can arrange a visit to a competing home and we can compare its condition and features to your own.
2. Condition. If you want to sell fast, your home should already be in good condition, free of any defects that would prevent a successful inspection. Emphasize the attractive features of your home, like landscaping or unique architecture. Do a deep cleaning or hire professionals to clean windows and floors for a fresh look. Remove unnecessary clutter and personal items like photos and collectibles to give your home a more neutral appeal. Consider removing bulky furniture to make the home seem larger, so that buyers can visualize their own furnishings there. Start packing; nothing says “I’m ready to sell!” like packed boxes in the garage.
3. Marketing. This is where having a real estate agent matters. As your realtor, here’s where I can help elevate your listing. With access to marketing websites and social media outlets, I will represent your home with photographs and video strategically placed online for ultimate exposure to buyers starting their search for a home. Also, as part of a home marketing plan, your home will be exposed to thousands of potential buyers from day one.
