Sometimes selling your house can be challenging. If you need to sell your house fast it can add even more stress and seem overwhelming. What do you do if there are multiple homes for sale in your area that a buyer has to choose from? How do you make your house stand out from the rest and get someone to buy your house rather than your neighbors? We're going to cover a few things to help you sell your house fast, and hopefully faster than another that's on the market.
Preparing Your House So That It Will Sell Fast
In our previous post "Remodeling Tips To Sell Your House Faster " we covered some tips on upgrades and updating your house to help make it outshine the other properties on the market. If your house hasn't been updated in 30 years, then this is something that you are going to have to do. If your house has been updated then you are ahead of the curve. All you really need to do then is super clean the house and stage the house.
Now you may not know what staging is. Wikipedia actually gives a great description:
We couldn't have explained it better. Now you maybe asking yourself "do I really need to stage my house?". The answer is yes, which is explained well in this article from Redfin:
We like the last point made. We always stage our properties that have been renovated because it helps buyers see the functionality of a space. We think that it does help them visualize living in the house and just exactly what each room is for.
Always Be Prepared For Visitors To Look At Your House
Now your house is clean and staged. The next thing is, keep it that way! We know this can be challenging, especially if you have children. However it is extremely important to keep the house spic and span and ready to show at all times. The importance of this is emphasized in this article from HGTV:
Good advice. And who doesn't like flowers and cookies?! Curb appeal is very important. Don't have the kids toys in the front yard. You should also pressure wash the driveway and sidewalks. You also want to make sure you do the basic stuff such as cutting the grass and having the shrubs trimmed up.
Summing It Up
Getting your house to sell fast can be stressful. As long as you properly clean and stage the house, it should go much easier. It can be difficult if you have small children to keep the house ready to show at all times, but you are going to have to do your best. Hopefully if someone stops by and the kids have their toys scattered throughout the family room the buyer will understand.
