The Secrets of Quick Home Sales
When it comes to selling a home quickly, there are lots of things you’ll need to do if you want to sell through an estate agent. Firstly, here’s what you’ll need to do to attract the most house buyers through your front door:
The majority of private buyers will already have decided whether they want to buy your home before they’ve stepped through the front door, so if the outside of your home is tatty, unkempt or poorly maintained then you’ll automatically be losing out on a huge number of potential buyers.
In the current climate the housing sector is a buyer’s market which means potential purchasers can and will look for any reason to try to knock down the price they offer you, so if you’ve got maintenance issues then failing to get them fixed could see you lose out on offers.
Thanks to property and decorating shows, these days most buyers expect to see very neutral spaces with few personal effects when they buy, which means it’s necessary to move out before you’ve moved, so to speak. If your home is packed full of items and décor that reflect your own tastes buyers will find it hard to imagine themselves living there.
A fresh lick of paint, deep cleaning and new flooring can encourage a buyer to spend thousands more than they would on a home that needs a spruce up, so putting in the time and effort to do this yourself can be beneficial.
The Alternative to a Quick Estate Agent Sale
Even if you take all the above steps with an estate agent sale and get an asking price offer the minute your home hits the market, it will still take at least eight weeks for the sale to go through, although things rarely run this quickly.
However, when you choose to sell to a cash buyer, your home can be off your hands within just one week. You won’t need to spend time and effort getting your house ‘sale ready’ and you won’t need to spend a penny on fees or expenses. All you do is sign on the dotted line and the home buying company will do the rest on your behalf.
