Unlike everything else you own, your house is remarkably tricky to get rid of quick. Everything from your car to your family business can be sold in a matter of weeks, whereas it could take months of effort and thousands of dollars to get your home keys in the hands of the perfect buyer. So, here are some tips on selling your home efficiently.
Setup for a Quick Sell
Traditionally, homeowners have always relied on estate agents to get the house on the market. But this process is time-consuming and even after the hefty brokerage fees paid out to agents there is no guarantee you’ll get a better price or a quicker sell. Instead, homeowners are increasingly opting for services like Quick Move Now Property Buyers, which allows sellers to wrap up the sale in record time. The price is guaranteed and the whole process is a lot easier.
Cleaning up the property is really important if you want the best price. This is true regardless of who you sell to. Getting rid of the carpet stains, washing windows inside-out, and getting rid of the tile stains in the bathroom are an absolute must. It’s important to make the house look and feel sparkling new before a property buyer ever sets foot through the door.
Moving is a great opportunity to clear up the clutter in your house. There’s probably a lot of stuff you never use and could be better off with someone else. Use a quick sell service like StuffYouSell or simply list all the stuff you have at bargain prices on Amazon and eBay. If you have buyers coming home, emptying up space will allow them to see the barebones structure of the house. This will let them decide whether or not they want to buy quicker, which will help move the process along.
A lot of times property sales get stuck in limbo purely because of a lack of repair. If the pipes haven’t been repaired or the roof needs fixing, it could hold up the sale for weeks. Furthermore these repairs cost a lot of money. Hiring out a team of handymen to patch the place up will likely be expensive and take forever. A quicker and cheaper way to get the repairs done is by learning the simple jobs and doing it all yourself. If you’re up to the task you’ll save a ton of money and gain some valuable experience.
A lot of things have become easier to buy or sell over the years, but houses are still pretty caught up in red tape and traditional methods. With a little help you may be able to sell the house quicker than you expected. This will let you move on and start afresh sooner.
