If you’re like most people, you want to sell your home quickly - and at the right price. But where do you start when you want to sell a home fast?
5 Tips for Selling Your Home Fast
Hire a professional home stager
Put everything you don’t need into storage
Make sure your Realtor(R) uses high-resolution photography
Take out everything that makes your home personalized
Make minor upgrades
#1. Hire a professional home stager.
For most people, hiring a professional home stager is well worth the cost. In addition to helping you get a higher price for your home, he or she can help you sell it a lot faster than you ordinarily would.
#2. Put everything you don’t need into storage.
Take out anything you haven’t used in the last 6 months and put it in storage. You can bring it into your new home - or if you’re feeling particularly motivated, you can use this vital step to declutter your whole life. You can set up boxes for donations, things to sell, and things to toss so you have less to move when you sell the home you’re currently in.
#3. Make sure your Realtor uses high-resolution photography.
When you work with the right Realtor, she’ll use high-resolution photos to market your home online. That’s because the first impression potential buyers get of your home comes directly from what they see online - and that first impression has to be a good one.
#4. Take out everything that makes your home personalized.
Buyers want to be able to envision their belongings in your space. That’s a lot harder for them to do if there’s a picture of your family staring down at them from every room. Your stager will advise you to remove personal photos and effects, and replace them with neutral pieces of art and decor that appeal to a much wider audience.
#5. Make minor upgrades.
If there are little upgrades you can make, you should make them! Try updating light fixtures, faucets, door handles and other small touches - they can make a world of difference to your buyers.
