From ‘For Sale’ to ‘Sold’ – Tips on How to Sell Your Home Fast

If selling your home is a top priority in 2023, our team has got you covered. Here are some tips and tricks to leverage if you are in the market wanting to sell your property quickly and efficiently. Contrary to the popular belief that selling quickly is a matter of sheer luck, implementing these tried-and-true tactics may help you land a lucrative offer on your home within the desired timeframe.

Prep and inspect your home properly

It is important to hire a home inspector to examine your plumbing, electricity, heating and cooling systems, and roofing before putting your home on the market. This will not only help you determine the true value and condition of your home but also identify any potential urgent repairs and maintenance needs that should be prioritized. A property that comes with a detailed inspection report will be more appealing to potential buyers and will also give you added confidence, knowing that you understand the true condition of your home.

Make a great first impression

Now it is time to channel your inner Marie Kondo and deep clean and declutter your home. Get rid of all your eclectic and personal items to depersonalize and neutralize your home. Rather than reflecting your personality, your property should showcase to prospective buyers the potential for your home to become their dream abode. Impress them with comfort and functionality. A fresh coat of paint in a warm tone, clean blinds, and floors, and new light fixtures are just some of the ways you can leave a lasting impression on prospective buyers. You can even consider hiring a professional stager who will elevate and highlight your home’s best features.

Walking into your home should be a multi-sensory experience for your prospective buyer. The stunning-looking couch, the warmth and the sound of fire burning in the fireplace, a pleasant aroma wafting from the kitchen, a modern done-up kitchen with squeaky clean appliances, and a roomy pantry should all enthrall their senses. If you have pets, be sure to keep them away during the showing to avoid unintentional accidents. 

Market your home

Work with your real estate agent to host an open house and help market your home. Your real estate agent can help you upload your listing online and write a killer description that includes SEO keywords that will rank your listing higher on the search engine. Remember to involve friends and family for good word-of-mouth publicity and hire a professional photographer to take beautiful photos of your newly spruced-up space.

Price your home right

Pricing is perhaps one of the quintessential aspects that can make or break a deal. The asking price should be reasonable as well as competitive to draw in the greatest number of buyers. Speaking with your real estate agent about the typical asking price of properties in your neighborhood will help you in this regard. Just-below pricing is a well-tried-out strategy to create buzz among prospects and increase foot traffic.
