Whether you are relocating, purchasing a new property or simply needing to move ahead, it’s sometimes necessary to sell a home fast. Unfortunately, that is sometimes easier said than done. There are however several steps that you can take to help move your property quickly.
Price: The number one reason most homes do not sell is that they aren’t priced competitively. It’s important to price the home right when first putting it on the market. The right price attracts attention. Once buyers see a home on the listings month after month, they assume something is wrong.
Bad Impression: Clutter, grime and lack of cleanliness are three huge reasons why your home might not sit well with potential buyers. Ask your agent for an honest appraisal of the property, and then take action before listing.
Taxes, Insurance and Homeowner Association (HOA) Fees: High property taxes, inability to obtain affordable insurance and escalating HOA fees can dramatically impact the desirability of a given property. Take time to shop around for the best insurance rates, provide a complete breakdown of services and other benefits derived from the HOA fees, and consider petitioning for an evaluation of property taxes if appropriate.
Showing Restrictions: Don’t become your own worst enemy. Try to remain as flexible as possible when showing the home. It might take a bit more effort, but it is well worth the reward when trying to sell a home quickly.
