How to Sell Your Home Fast

Even if you think you have all the time in the world to sell your home, once you put the for sale sign in the yard you will start to feel antsy. If you want to sell your home quickly it’s important to have a strategy. Here are some tips and tricks for getting more buyers interested and selling your home quickly:

1. Lots of photos: The more photos the better. Image is everything and you want to make sure your home has a good one. Studies show that 10 or more pictures can help reduce your home’s days-on-market time by up to 42% and improve the selling price by as much as 3.8%.

2. Host an Open House: According to the National Association of Realtors, 45% of home buyers reported they used information from an open house in their home search. Open houses bring potential buyers into your home for a first hand view.

3. Staging: This can really help a home sell quickly. Statistics show staging can help a property sell 50% faster and can increase the selling price by 6.9%. Staging allows buyers to imagine their own life within the home.

4. Price it Right: Work with your real estate agent to price your home competitively within the current market. Use a Comparative Market Analysis or CMA to compare your home to others like it in your neighborhood. This will give you a value price range in which your home should sell.
