So you’ve decided to sell your house, and you want it to be as painless and quick as possible. Maybe you have an awesome opportunity awaiting you in another city, maybe you’re about to go into foreclosure, or maybe you’re going through a life change that demands you settle your debts immediately. Whatever the case, if you want a house sold quickly and sold legally, this is not the time to take this venture on solo. You will not have the necessary time, depth of knowledge, or ability to deal with potential buyers.
Three Secrets To Selling A House Quickly
- Get a real Estate Agent
- Don’t take on big projects to fix it up
- Be willing to negotiate
You need a real estate agent. These professionals know what the market is in your area, what potential buyers are looking for (they may even have some in mind!), they know the legalities involved with selling, and they can take fantastic pictures that show off the house’s best features and downplay the worst ones. They can quickly estimate your home’s value, they can write up beautiful descriptions of your home, list your home in multiple real estate outlets, show your home to potential buyers…the advantages are endless. Besides, science shows you really do get what you pay for with this one – you are far more likely to bring in a higher amount for your house, enough that having an agent essentially pays for itself. You won’t regret it.
Yes, it’s true that the bathroom needs remodeling and the lime green shag carpet in the basement needs replaced…but in the end, it doesn’t matter. You’re going to fix up the house, spend all that time and money, and then maybe not even get back what you invested. Selling a home quickly means most of the time selling as is. Of course, your real estate agent may suggest slapping some new paint on the front door or replacing a falling down mailbox, and you should surely follow their advice. But it is not the time for new floors, a new kitchen, and a new master bath. By the time you do all that, it will be next year, and you might just want to keep the house. Seriously.
Finally, be willing to negotiate. Don’t lose a sale over a couple thousand dollars when you are quickly trying to sell a house. You may not get a bite again for a while. Of course, you shouldn’t settle for way under value, but when it comes down to splitting hairs, shake hands and sign on the dotted line. Time is money, and you just saved some time.
