Home Seller's Checklist
Selling a home is often a difficult and trying process. This is certainly compounded when the house needs to the sold in a relatively short amount of time. To sell the house for the right price at the right time, there are a few simple steps.
Clean and Stage the Home
Keeping the house tidy is always best when it is being shown. Small things like renting a carpet cleaner can make a drastic difference. A prospective home buyer wants to see the house and the potential and not see all of the moving boxes and clutter. Empty out rooms and rent space at a storage facility if need be. Room should be set up as they are intended. If the house has three bedrooms, make sure all three are set up as bedrooms.
Know the Competition
More than likely, there are other similar homes on the market. Pricing the house similarly will help to get it sold. Make certain it is not priced out of the local market.
Offer to Pay Closing Costs
Closing costs refer to all the taxes, fees and costs required to close a real estate transaction. By offering to pay for the closing cost for the buyer you can make the deal more attractive because it takes him less cash to buy the home. This can be very important, especially if the buyers funds are limited
List out local amenities
Make sure that you inform potential buyers about all the local amenities and advantages of living in the area because many potential buyers will be unaware of these advantages. These factors can be huge selling points aside from the structure of the property itself.
Buyer Assistance Programs
See if there are any assistance programs in your local area to help buyers close easier. These programs help potential home buyers who can make a house payment with no difficulty but cannot buy a house because they the lack funds required for a down payment and closing cost.
Real Estate Investors
One of the best options, when it comes to selling a home quickly would be to work directly with a real estate investor. These people will usually be looking to quickly move through the selling process which is important. If the house is a good investment, they will be motivated to give a reasonable offer to acquire the property. If the market is flooded, there may be some negotiation on the asking price.
Having the house priced correctly and staged well will help sell the home quickly. Working with a real estate investor is key and should definitely be investigated.
