5 Tips for Selling Your Home Quickly


There are several reasons why you may need to sell your home quickly. For

example, a job change may require a speedy relocation to another city, or

you may have purchased another property and don't want to be stuck too

long with two mortgages.

Here are some tips that can help get the sold sign on your front lawn


Be realistic with price. If you set the listing price higher than the

current market value of your home, then you're not going to get

many, if any, viewers. You want the list price to be attractive, which

means listing at the current market value.

Get things fixed. You probably don't have time for a major

renovation. So just make sure everything in your home is in good

working order. Deal with any obvious maintenance issues, such as a

leaking faucet or a gate hanging precariously on one hinge.

Ensure your home shows well, inside and outside. Eliminate

clutter. Trim hedges. Make sure every room has adequate lighting,

especially the basement. Imagine that a special guest is visiting your

home, then clean up and prepare accordingly.

Be flexible with viewing times. You want as many potential buyers

as possible to see your home. So don't restrict viewing times to just

Saturdays. Make sure your home is as "available" as possible for

showings. This may cause you and your family some inconvenience,

but the reward will be selling your property sooner.

Work with a good REALTOR®. Find an agent who understands the

area and the local market well. He or she will be able to recommend

a variety of strategies that will help sell your home faster, and for a

good price.

Of course, there's no way to guarantee that you'll sell your home within the

time frame you want. But these tips will certainly increase the chances that

you will.
