Selling your house is not as easy as it seems, especially when it’s your first time selling a house. We have collected five secrets you should know when selling your home, to help you make smarter decisions and sell your home faster and more efficiently.
1. Long listings are harder to sell
The more time your house is listed, the more difficult it is to sell, and the more likely you’ll have to decrease the price. Statistics show that once your home has been on the market for over two months, the interest and views decrease. Don’t let the first offers go so quickly.
2. Visuals make the sales
Visuals play a huge role when listing your home. The first thing buyers will look at is the photos, then the title and description. High-quality and professional-looking images can boost your sales.
Make sure to stage your home before taking the photos. Clean, declutter, and buy accessories that can make it look more welcoming, like flowers, candles, fresh or new towels, etc. Also, try to update the photos and add seasonal elements.
3. Don’t go overboard with repairs
There’s no need to do a lot of repairs. A lot of homeowners make the mistake of remodeling to their liking when the reality is that a potential buyer will want to make changes according to their taste and needs.
4. Paint the walls white
If you can, paint the walls white. White walls make spaces look bigger and brighter. Everyone wants glowing and roomy spaces. The white walls will create a spacious effect on photos and in person.
5. Consider selling to a homebuyer or property investment company
One of the things real estate agents don’t want you to know is that you often get more money when selling your home to a homebuyer or property investment company instead of selling it traditionally.
A homebuyer will make an offer straight away, without the need of having an appraisal or cleaning up and repairing your home. They also don’t charge commissions or fees and they cover closing costs.
Don’t underestimate the expenses you’ll have to go through when selling your home through the traditional listing way. Compare it to what a home buyer like KC Property Connection has to offer, and contact us.
