Ok, so you’re a motivated seller. You’re in a hurry to sell your house. But, that doesn’t mean you want to be fleeced on the selling price.
You might be in a hurry to sell because of a new job, or a new baby. In any case, you want to sell your home as quickly as possible, for as much profit as possible. We can help!
Contrary to what you may have heard, it is possible to sell your home quickly and still make a good profit on it.
Build Your Dream Team
You’re not going to do this alone. You need to bring in the big guns and the specialists.
The first thing you’re going to need to do is find a realtor who has experience closing deals quickly. Not everyone does and it’s a question you will definitely want to ask when you’re interviewing candidates. They should also have a strong understanding of your specific local market. Nothing will slow the sale process more than setting an asking price that is totally out of whack with the market.
This realtor should also have access to a professional photographer. Strong and stunning pictures are always important in real estate. But, now, they’re more important than ever and so is every aspect of your online listing.
Next, you’re going to want to hire a home stager. But, isn’t this just another expense that will eat away at your profits? No, this is an investment. A home stager can help you:
- Increase your asking price by 5% – 20%
- Shorten the sales process from 140 days to 40 days
Their job is to help you turn a showing into a closing. So, let them do what they do best!
Focus on Fast and High ROI Upgrades
You don’t have the time to carry out major home renovation projects. So, you need to be strategic in how you choose your upgrades.
Upgrading your garage door can be basically done over a weekend and has one of the highest ROIs of any type of home improvement project.
You can quickly boost your home’s curb appeal by going with a high-end-looking garage door. For example, glass garage doors are modern and can completely change the look and feel of your home, for not a lot of money.
De-clutter the Home
This is something your home stager can help you with. Removing cumbersome clutter means more than just getting rid of all the winter boots in your front hall closet or the holiday decorations in the garage. It could mean removing some of your furniture to make the home appear to be more spacious.
This means you may want to find a safe and secure self-storage facility nearby to hold everything while your home is being showcased with a minimalist look.
You’re in a hurry to sell your home. But that doesn’t mean your home needs to look like it was rushed onto the market and you’re desperate to get rid of it. Take the time to find the right professionals to help, while focusing on low-cost upgrades and you will get the price you’re looking for in the timeframe you’re working with.
It can be done!
