Unfortunately, homeowners who need to sell their home fast soon realize that they are at the mercy of the market. That market will influence whether they sell quickly or not, and how much they can get for their property. And as you’ve seen in our local Portland real estate market… the market is changing on an almost monthly basis.

The factors that influence whether you’ll sell your home quickly in this Portland market

There are many factors that influence whether you’ll sell your OR home quickly in this market.

Some of those factors include:

  • The national economy
  • The local economy in Portland OR
  • Interest rates
  • The condition and trends of the neighborhood (is it growing? is it shrinking?)
  • The condition of your house and whether it needs work
  • The asking price of your house
  • The asking price of similar houses in the area

… and so many other factors as well.

You may not have the luxury of waiting around for home prices in your neighborhood in Portland to go up. Instead, you have to face the realities of the marketplace – especially if the clock is ticking.

The four steps to sell your Portland house fast

Here are our top strategies for selling your house fast.

First, remember that your house isn’t the only one for sale.

It may be a house for sale in Portland, but it’s going to have some stiff competition. It sounds like you’re in a situation where the price that you want to sell is not one that anyone else really wants or can afford. You might need to compromise your selling price for a more realistic number. When coming up with a selling price, don’t forget to include the money needed for home repairs too. If you try and sell your house at full value and buyers see that there is something wrong with it, they won’t buy it because of the problems with the property.

Second, think about who is the most likely person to buy your home.

If you currently own a home, you may be thinking about putting it on the market soon. Before you do, make sure you understand who is most likely to buy your house so that you can highlight its benefits in your listing.

There are several things to consider when marketing your home. One of the most important concerns who are more likely to purchase your house. If it’s not someone with needs similar to yours, then you’ll need to tweak some of your selling points before showing the property to potential buyers.

Third, invest some time, money, and effort into preparing your house for the right buyer.

If the best person to buy your home is a young family then perhaps you’ll want to make sure that you have a great backyard with a swingset. Or if your house is near a busy street to make sure you have a nice fence around the yard to protect kids from going into the street. If the best person to buy your home is a retired couple then perhaps you’ll want to make sure that the home is comfortable for people with no children but who may have a hard time with stairs. Or make sure the landscaping outside is lower maintenance.

Fourth, work with a local Portland OR real estate professional who can help you prepare your home, list it, and close the deal.

There are plenty of agents here in Portland to work with… and if you want a referral to a reputable agent with a track record, just give us a ring at 503-809-4855 and we’d be glad to give you some names.
