When there are real reasons for you to want to sell a property right away, your frustration may be rising and you might worry about how long a sale could take. While there is no way to be certain when the perfect buyer will appear, you can turn your frustration into action by heeding these selling suggestions and making the sale as buyer-friendly as possible.
1. Mow the Lawn
A simple move which you hadn't considered is some simple grooming of the property grounds. Sometimes just mowing the lawn can help a property be more attractive to prospective buyers, who like to see that a property has been cared for. An overgrown lawn could indicate that other things may have been neglected too. While you're at it, you may want to trim bushes and cut weeds too.
2. Pant Walls
While on the property, your kids' penchant for bright colors and your spouse's desire for a pink bathroom might have worked. However, remember that a blank slate can be best for those who are hoping to make the property theirs. Some people may dislike brightly colored walls or dislike the color pink. To increase the chance that people will respond positively and put in offers, make sure the walls are as neutral in color as possible.
3. Have an Inspection
Being able to prove to buyers that there are no major problems with the property is important. Instead of waiting for a possible buyer to ask for a home inspection, have one done now. Having the inspection in-hand will speed the selling process and give people confidence about purchasing.
4. Have Open Houses
Allowing people inside the house and garage may be something you plan to do once or twice. If you want to get serious about a speedy sale, you should consider upping that number. If possible, having open houses each week until a sale takes place could allow interested parties to make the time to visit. The more people who look at the property, the more chances you have to attract the right person or family.
5. Price Affordably
You might have been very strict with your realtor about the price you've set. However, if no one is willing to pay as much as you ask, the home will lit unsold for a while. To speed things up without being unfair to yourself, ensure that you are in the right range to encourage those who would purchase the property.
