There are many reasons you might like to sell your home quickly, but it’s important to still get the result that you need to make your next property move. To make sure your sale is quick but effective, take inspiration from these steps.
Here’s what you need to know to have a fast and successful sale:
1. Clear out clutter
It will take much longer to find a buyer who can look past any clutter and personal items you might have in your home. So, for a quicker sale, it’s important to remove unnecessary clutter and family photos before you get professional property photos taken so that buyers can really envision themselves in your home.
If you’ve decluttered but still have some belongings you’d like to keep, it’s a great idea to get a temporary storage unit. This way, you don’t have to commit to throwing anything away and can quickly pack your things away to set up for your fast home sale.
2. Fix everything
It’s usually important to fix up things around the house before you list it for sale, but if you’re looking to find the right buyer quickly, the property should be completely move-in ready. This means fixing up the little things and the big things, from flaking paint or marks on the wall, to plumbing or cabinetry.
This will attract buyers who want to pay the right price for your home and will encourage them to move in quickly to make use of their new home.
3. Style your home
The final step to making your home ready for sale is professional styling to attract the right people and help them imagine themselves living there. Many Avnu agents recommend getting an experienced property stylist to do this, as they know exactly what buyers in your area are looking for.
In fact, one of our agents recently sold a property that had been professionally styled in just 24 hours to an international buyer. The styling can make all the difference if you’re in a hurry.
4. Invest in marketing
After you’ve had your home styled, it’s time to organise professional photographs and market your property. If you’re trying to sell your home quicker than the average campaign it’s important to invest in comprehensive marketing, as more efficient marketing will help you to reach more of the right buyers faster. Using channels such as social media can really make all the difference when trying to market your property, as it really attracts buyers’ attention.
5. Be realistic and open-minded
When listing your home on the market, it is important to recognise the shortcomings of the property. Many sellers have expectations that are far too high for their property sale, so it is important to be open-minded to what your agent recommends, and look at market trends for an appropriate price point. Being realistic with your price expectations can really make all the difference in a quick sale, as you might just find the right buyer at the right price.
6. Choose the best agent for you
Finally, make sure you’ve chosen who you believe to be the best agent. They should be truly interested in achieving the best possible price for your property and be motivated to sell as quickly as you are. They should also have expertise operating in your area and the tools to perform at their best. This way, you should be able to achieve your ideal price in the shortest time frame possible.
