7 Tips for Selling Your Home Quickly... |

Get your home sold quickly--without giving up profits--using these tips from the pros!


Selling your home is nerve-wracking--even under the best of circumstances.  However, add into the mix a short timeline and things become a bit more interesting.
There is good news: Buyers are snapping up homes across the US at warp speed.  So, if you're considering selling your home, now might be a great time to list it on your local real estate market.
Using these seven tips along with the right real estate agent can help speed up the sale of your home and still provide top dollar.

  1. The Price is Right
    Getting your listing price right from the beginning is so important to selling your home quickly and for a realistic price.  If you start with a price that is too high, your house can sit unsold, and you'll lose money in the long run.  Your real estate agent should provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) to set a competitive price based on recent sales in your area.

  2. Boost Your Home's Curb Appeal
    There's nothing like creating a great first impression—especially when you're selling a home.  Curb appeal is essential to drawing people to your home, so make sure yours shines. Add flowers that bring color to the space, paint the front door and clean up the lawn. Make the home as attractive as possible for those who drive by because this will cause them to stop and schedule a showing. If a potential buyer does a drive by and is not impressed with what he sees, he's not going to take the home seriously when considering his prospects.

  3. Give Your Home a Fresh Face
    Make your home appear more up-to-date and on trend with current home styles.  Paint walls, add new fixtures and plant fresh landscaping.  These are all low cost items, but can help fetch a higher price in the long run.

  4. Clear the Clutter
    Make your home appear larger and more inviting to home buyers by removing excess knickknacks and excess furniture. You are going to be moving soon anyway, so take the time now to remove the clutter and pack it away for now. This will make your home look larger and more inviting, and it will also make it easier to keep it clean.

  5. Don't Make It Personal
    Your home may be your castle, but when you are selling your home it needs to be as neutral as possible. Take down the kid's art, family photos and collections that are important to you, but not to anyone else. The goal is for the house to look like a model home, so buyers can imagine their life in your home.

  6. Make it Sparkle
    Deep clean your home from top to bottom when you're listing it for sale.  If you have the budget for a cleaning service, that might be a wise investment, but do everything in your power to keep the home clean at all times.

  7. Hire a Professional Photographer
    Consider hiring a professional real estate photographer to take the images for your online listings. Most people are going to "tour" a home online before they schedule an in-person tour, so make sure your home looks its best. High-quality images may be an investment, but they will pay big dividends when you sell your home quickly and for a good price.

Selling your home isn't always easy, but it doesn't have to be time consuming either. With the right steps, you can sell your home quickly and avoid the drama of endless days on market.

5 Reasons Why The Holidays are a Great Time to Sell Your Home! |

Sell Your Home Holidays
The holidays are not only a time of good cheer but a great time to sell your home too. If you're planning to relocate, putting your home on the market during the holidays can be less of a hassle and more lucrative than you think.

  1. Less Competition
    Many homeowners don't want the hassle of selling their home at the holidays; consequently, there are fewer homes on the market. If you decide to sell your property during the holidays, you'll have less competition. Fewer homes for sale overall means more buyers touring your home.

    Another plus is being able to sell your home for asking price. When there's less of a selection, buyers will be more willing to buy at the price you've set because of the shortage of comparable homes on the market during the holidays.

  2. Motivated Buyers
    Buyers who take time out of their schedule to go house hunting are usually serious about buying a new home. Maybe they've been looking for months and just haven't found that perfect home yet. They may be relocating to start a new job or want to buy before year-end for tax reasons. Keep your home in showing-ready shape and be flexible about when people can come take a look. Negotiations might not take long because many people who want or need to move right away are willing to pay a premium to get the buying and moving process out of the way quickly.

  3. Your Home Is Decked Out
    The lights, sights and sounds of the holiday season often tug on people's heartstrings. Take advantage of this by making your home cheerful, warm and cozy during showings. Clear the clutter and hang tasteful decorations that enhance your home's best features. That way, home buyers will be able to picture themselves celebrating in your home next year. While decorations are nice during the season, in January they're just depressing. Make sure to remove decorations as soon as the holidays are over.

  4. Buyers Have Time Off
    You may think that people are too busy to look for a home during the holidays, but many buyers have more time to search because they have holiday and vacation days off from work. Also, if they're looking for a home as a family, children and college students typically have a break from school for a few weeks in December.

  5. The New Year = Time Of Chang
    Many businesses in the United States hire people at the start of a new year. Typically, people who are relocating due to a new job want to find a home and close on it quickly. While this may cause you some stress, it is usually worth it in the end. Motivated sellers who need to find something fast are also more open to paying a higher price.
