How to sell a home fast

There are a number of things you can do to sell your home fast in any market, but the biggest factor in how long it takes for a home to sell is price. If the best advice for buying a home is “location, location, location,” the best advice for selling a home has to be “price, price, price.”

Price gets your home to show up in the list of homes a buyer is looking for. It’s that simple. If your home is overpriced compared to other homes in the search list a buyer is looking at, it runs the risk of not even getting shown.

That said, there are a number of things you can do to help sell your home fast once the price is right.

De-clutter it

Don’t try to sell your home if it has clutter everywhere. You’re asking a buyer to see past all that and recognize the home’s value in spite of the clutter, and that just introduces negatives in the buyer’s mind. Keep buyers positive by not distracting them from seeing the rooms.

Make it look lived-in

On the other hand, you don’t want to sell a vacant home, either. Vacant homes tend to take much longer to sell, because buyers assume there’s something wrong, or can’t visual the space with furniture in it. If your home is vacant, put some effort into staging it so that buyers can see what it looks like lived in.

Make sure your agent is an online marketing genius

Don’t worry, I have that one covered, but it’s important. The days where agents could put a home on the MLS and walk away are over. It’s a competitive market out there, and it’s the competitively priced and marketed homes that are selling. Forgotten listings form undercommitted or part-time agents go unsold and eventually go back to the bank oftentimes.

I use Twitter, Facebook, Craigslist, and multiple websites to get your home sold as fast as possible. It will be on, Zillow, Trulia, Oodle, and much more, because that’s what it takes to sell real estate now.

The bottom line if you want to sell your home fast is to remember that the real estate market is competitive, now more than ever. Buyers have plenty of choices to pick and choose from among the available listings, and to get your home sold fast, it needs to stand out as a good value.
