If you’re planning to sell your house and would like to sell it quicker than what you think you’re able to, then you may be worried that this is just not going to happen.
Or that in order for it to happen then you’re going to have to drastically reduce the price that you’re asking for your house.
However, this is simply not the case, so in this post we’re going to share with you some of our top tips for selling your house much quicker.
Of course, not all of these tips will apply to you – some of them are simply things that you can do that you perhaps wouldn’t even have thought of, but that can make big difference when it comes to increasing the value of your house and boosting the chances of you making a faster sale.
Boost your kerb appeal:
The kerb appeal of your property is simply what people see when they approach the outside. If you have a yard out front and all you have out there is messy grass, things lying around, and it looks as though it’s not been touched for years, then the kerb appeal of your property may not be good.
Even if the inside of it is perfect, taking care of the outside of your house can really make a big difference to people wanting to come and see the inside. It can already create the perception in their mind of the place that you’re sailing, so this can either increase or decrease the chances of selling.
To boost the kerb appeal of your property, all you have to do is make sure that you’re maintaining the area around your house, that there’s no junk lying around and the grass is regularly cut and kept tidy. If you still need help in knowing the ways that you can make the outside of your home irresistible to potential buyers and passers-by.
Fix up the garden
A garden is typically a big selling point on any property – especially if the people who are considering buying are going to be a family with children.
However if you’ve been neglecting your garden, then it may be time to consider things you can do to make it look a bit better in order to boost your chances of selling.
Whilst it may not be a deal-breaker for the people moving in, since a garden is a selling point in its own right it, definitely helps if the garden is well kept since this gives the impression that the property overall has been well maintained and looked after and it also allows them to see that they will have less work to do when they move in.
Add a new bathroom and kitchen
The kitchen and bathroom are two of the main rooms in the house, and also the two rooms that have the highest potential to either make or break the chance of selling.
They are considered to be high-value rooms, so if your kitchen or bathroom hasn’t been renovated in a while and you want to increase your chances of selling quickly, then perhaps a good idea would be to spend some money up front renovating your bathroom or kitchen. Giving them a new look so that when people come to see it, means your chances of selling are increased.
Yes you may be spending money upfront, but if you look at it as an investment, then you’ll see that it quickly pays off.
All these things can be quite expensive, but you can also shop around and ask for a recommended bathroom designer or someone who can offer you some kitchen units at a good price – there are always ways to shop around and get things a bit cheaper than full price.
A few coats of paint in your house can make a massive difference, and you’ll be surprised at how cheap and easy it is to do and also what a difference it can make in the perceived value in your potential buyer’s mind.
If your place could be doing with a bit of colour added to it, then now is a good time to consider doing this since it can really boost the value and increase the chances of a quick sale.
Again it’s also one of those things that people will be more drawn to if they think that they have to do less work once moved in. Especially easy clean decor for a family home.
Add new accessories
Although accessories are purely there for aesthetics, they can make a big difference when showing your home to people who would consider living there. They want to be able to envision themselves living there, and although they know that your furniture and accessories won’t be there, it still helps them create an idea in their mind.
Help them picture what it could potentially look like when they have their stuff in and how the layout of the room could look. Adding some nice accessories to brighten the place up that goes along with your colour scheme instead of having mismatched items and clutter everywhere is perfect.
This will make much more of a positive difference when it comes to making a quicker sale. Perhaps considering stylish pendant lighting or decorating?
Replace or repair the floors
Floors are a pretty important part of a house and they definitely can increase the value and perception in people’s minds of how the place has been looked after, so if you want to increase your chances of selling then now could be the time to either replace or even repair your floors.
If you want to just repair them, then you could do things like varnish or give them a good cleaning and you can hire companies who will do this for you to a very professional standard and even make your floors look brand new.
If there are some floors you want replacing, then again you can also shop around and find good deals on cheap flooring that can really make a big difference overall.
Get a good agent
When it comes to selling your house, it’s always best to work with an agent.
However, taking the time to shop around and get to know some agents who are a good fit for you is something that you’re better taking the time to do since not all agents are going to be able to get you a fast sale if that’s what you’re looking for.
Some agents will claim that they’re able to do this, but they’re not going to be able to deliver and this could end up costing you more money and time in the long run. Make sure they are honest and if you need to declutter to make it more appealing they tell you this.
Be flexible with the price
Although you shouldn’t allow people to knock you down with the price too much since you still have to be able to make something on the house.
It’s important to realise that if you’re looking for a faster sale, then you may have to be a little bit more flexible and be willing to go down a little bit with the price in order to make a fast sale if that’s what you really need.
The best thing to do here is to have a think about it before you actually list the property and consider what the minimum price you would ask is and then what the minimum price that you would accept for a faster sale would be.
Don’t allow yourself to be pressured into going too far down, but don’t be unrealistic with what you’re able to get if you’re looking for a faster sale.
