Want to sell your home faster?
As it is, the average time to sell on the MLS is right around 90 days, according to Zillow.
And while many people, for various reasons, need to sell faster than that — maybe they need to move because of work or family changes, for instance — doing so can be a bit of a challenge.
You have to find the right buyer with the right budget at the right time.
So how can you increase your chances of selling quickly?
Here are a few tips!
• Understand Your Comps[*] — The more accurately priced your home is, the faster it’s going to sell. So it’s worth taking a little bit of time to gain a thorough understanding of your home’s comps. Be aware that some real estate agents will overprice a home to try and put more money in their own pocket … even though this will cause the home to take longer to sell (or not even sell at all at that price and you’ll lose precious time).
• End Your Price With 99 — It might seem like a silly sales trick, but ending the price tag on the home’s listing with “99” or “97” is likely to draw more eyes.
• Focus On Photos — For bringing attention to the house listing, photos are probably the most important element. Buyers are scrolling through listings like they scroll through social media. And the photos are what catch their attention. So it’s probably worth paying a little extra to get great professional pictures.
• Market The Property’s Strengths — In the listing, be sure to talk about the strengths of your property. Is it in a great school district? Is it a great home for investors to rent out? Talk about that to garner attention!
Hope that helps!
