How To Sell Your House Fast For Cash
Selling a home involves a lot of anxiety, especially if you need to do it quickly. Whether you need quick cash for financial reasons, job relocation, or a personal situation, there are a few things you can do to attract solid deals and reduce the time of your property in the market.
People who choose to sell their houses through the traditional real estate market need to spend money and time to impress potential buyers. Some homeowners don’t know that they have the option to sell directly and save a lot of headaches like:
Prepare Your House For Sale
Preparing your home improves its marketability. It would be best to do major or minor renovation; taking care of details will help you get the best price for your home.
Declutter And Organize
Hoards of junk are always a bad sign for prospective buyers. Moreover, decluttering and organizing is one of the most time-consuming activities of preparing your home for sale. Eliminating empty containers, boxes, old and ugly furniture, and trash in every room requires big money spending.
Store personal items like family photos and things that overload your home. Also, you need to organize the closets, store any extra belongings or furniture, and store them in a rented storage unit.
Steam Clean Carpets And Refinish Floors
If you have hardwood floors, refinishing them could go a long way towards getting your house sold quickly. Alternatively, you can steam clean the carpets if you don’t want to shell out a lot of money. Both of these actions give your home a more “finished” look that buyers will appreciate.
When you sell your property to us, you don’t need to clean your floors.
Invest In Home Repairs
You may not have time for renovations, but there are a ton of minor and major fixes that can deter people from paying cash for houses. Inspect your home for loose door handles, leaky faucets, loose tiles, peeled paint, and significant structural damages requires hiring a professional construction company or contractor.
Boosting Your Curb Appeal
An excellent first impression is a MUST if you want to impress home-buyers. Start by replacing old hardware such as the house numbers, the overhead light fixture, and the wall-mounted mailbox.
You got to consider installing window boxes, planting flowers, painting the front door, and adding potted plants. Typically these jobs are done between three days to a week.
Market Your House
On top of the above points, make your buyers easily find you. Your real estate agent demands you to utilize the home marketing tips below:
Stage The House
Pare down the furniture to make rooms feel larger, keep the tabletops simple and uncover the windows to let in natural light.
Add a basket with fresh produce in the kitchen, set out an aromatic bar of soap and fresh towels in the bathroom, and whittle down the closets to create breathing room for clothes, linens, and towels. Time and money spent by following your realtor’s demands are on you.
Take Professional Photos And Video
Often, real estate agents suggest sellers hire a professional photographer to have photos and videos of your home – both the exterior and interior.
The National Association of Realtors 2017 study estimated that homes with one photograph spent an average of 70 days on the market while those with 20 photos spent 32 days on the market. Expect to pay upwards of $1,300 on professional photos and a video.
Write A Killer Listing Description
Your listing description should be warm and inviting. It should paint a picture for prospective buyers – describe the perfect patio for summer cookouts and highlight. Mention specific finishes and skip the nuts and bolts often highlighted by MLS in data fields.
Have on account that you pay the efforts, descriptions, and adds to sell your property. If you hire a realtor, they expect you do about 80% of the work to sell your home.
Host An Open House
A traditional in-person open house gives prospective buyers to scout the place and take measurements.
Social media has millions of active users who log in every day, making them a powerful marketing tool.
Upload a Canva flyer with 4-5 photos and highlights of your house to Facebook Marketplace, your Facebook page, and Instagram. Consider creating a squeeze page, which provides valuable information in exchange for a visitor’s email address.
Homeowners pay and use their time to manage the social media pages and host potential buyers.
A traditional real estate sale takes from 90 to 120 days. Additionally, the seller must pay for the house expenses, such as home maintenance, mortgage, utilities, taxes, etc.
When we buy your property, we pay for everything.
