Don't despair, just because you are in the throws of a divorce settlement and you want to know how to sell your house fast and still get the best market value for it. It is being done and heres how.
Firstly; don't reduce the price! Reducing the price will probably do you no favours at all. Don't fall into this trap. Remember a realtor only needs to sell one house a week and they don't care who's or what price it sells for. You need to sell your house and get today's market value for it.
Selling fast in a sluggish housing market is not about reducing the price but how you advertise and in its presentation. You have to make your home STAND OUT from all the others listed and create MAXIMUM exposure. Then keep prospects focused on your home whilst getting them to disqualify other properties in your area. Specifically worded adverts in your local newspaper is all you need. Even national publications will help broaden your audience.
Back this up with another (free) ad on the internet and you will have your phone ringing in no time. The secret of how to sell your house fast is in how you word your ads. Placing ads in the same format and wording as everyone else (realtors) is not going to work. It is important to be original, be different from all other advertisements, to make your house stand out.
Stop wasting your money on promotions and advertisements that haven't got you or your realtor results so far. Everything will remain the same unless you change the way you promote your house. Writing an ad that can stimulate CURIOSITY and compel potential buyers to instantly respond to you, is easier than you think.
Another successful tip in how to sell your house fast: 'Appeal to all ours senses, not just the visual'. Remember we all make buying decisions not just by sight but by all our senses. Think like a buyer. No one wants to inspect a house that is untidy, cold, dull, and unwelcoming and smells of must. Even if your property is in 'less than perfect condition', it can still be made to look, smell and feel inviting. Hide personal items in cupboards - buyers want to imagine their own things in the house
Flowers inside - adds colour and is very appealing visually Have coffee percolating in the kitchen, get prospects to sit down whilst enjoying a cup The smell of freshly baked cakes or bread will stimulate a feeling of homeliness Soft music playing in the background, will impart a feeling of relaxation Remove distracting items e.g. workout equipment or pet items in lounge area Ensure your house is warm or cool depending on the season. Buyer must feel instantly comfortable
Naturally you will need to do some more homework to find the right advice or publication that will assist you, but the time invested will get you results and potentially save you thousands of dollars. Use these tips to sell your house privately or in partnership with a realtor. Either way, it will help you in how to sell your house fast so you can move on with your life.
