To quickly sell a home it needs to be well shown, well marketed and correctly priced. This article provides you with a guide that will help you sell your house quickly.
Get your house ready for sale
Buyers today first view houses through photos on the internet and social media. Hiring a professional to stage and photograph your house seems like the best idea. They will look at your house from a buyer’s perspective and know how to draw attention to the strength and mitigate its flaws. When buyers come to view the house, they want to see their future house, so get rid of the cluttered household item. Throw away unwanted items, move some furniture, toys, and books into a storage unit and don’t leave any sexual-related magazines, medicine or guns in the open. Clear up the coats in the hallway and any equipment blocking windows or doorways. Make sure your house is spotlessly clean including bathrooms and kitchen. Tackle all the broken parts of the house and consider freshening up the interior decor to make your house look warm and welcoming. The external areas of the house should be kept neat.
How to market and sell your house
The first step is to put together all the paperwork needed to sell a house such as title deeds, a certificate for structural building work competed and planning consent. You can also start the conveyance process immediately. This is the legal transfer of property from one person to another. If you are missing any of the paperwork apply for it in advance. Ask around, Google and get professional opinion on the best time to sell your house. Traditionally spring is the best time to sell a house as buyers are competing for properties and families often try to buy properties to coincide with the end of a school year. Look around the neighborhood and find out if there are any consented developments that would help boost properties prices such as the construction of roads, schools or mobile phone masts. However, it is vital to avoid selling while these constructions are ongoing.
Contact several local estate agents to give their opinion on the value of your house in the current market. Look for a good and affordable real estate agent with experience to sell properties such as yours. A good real estate agent will showcase your home as widely as possible including on the internet’s most popular sites. If you cannot afford one, show the house yourself. Gather as much information about prospective buyers as possible. Try showing the best rooms first and avoid pointing out any potential problems of the property.
Weigh and accept the best offer. At this stage, the solicitor will push the conveyance process forward and upon completion, you will receive the full sum of money from the buyer and hand over the keys to the new house owner. This is what you need to keep in mind for a quick house sale.
