If you’re like many home sellers in Lake City who want to sell quickly, the good news is that it’s completely possible in most cases.
However, you can take a few steps that help you move your home more quickly.
How to Sell Your Home Quickly
While there are no guarantees about how soon your home will sell – there are just too many variables that make it tough to predict – you can help buyers understand what a great value your home is. Buyers love a great value!
Quick Sale Tip #1: Price Your Home Correctly
Many sellers believe that it’s okay to ask a high price and later lower it if the home doesn’t sell. While in theory, that works, you have to think about the perceived value of your home. The longer your home sits on the market, unsold, the less value people see in it. (We’ll give you a free comparative market analysis to help you determine how much your home is worth.)
Quick Sale Tip #2: Improve Curb Appeal
In some cases, simply cleaning up the yard and re-seeding the grass is all you need to do; in others, painting the front door and replacing the mailbox do the trick. Your Realtor® will discuss curb appeal with you when you list your home, so be sure to listen to his or her guidance.
Quick Sale Tip #3: Stage Your Home Correctly
Staging your home involves making its interior more appealing to buyers. That can include removing personal effects, cutting down on clutter and ensuring the whole house is spotlessly clean. As with curb appeal, your Realtor will cover the basics.
Quick Sale Tip #4: Be Flexible With Showings
The more available your home is, the more people who will come see it. While it’s inconvenient to maintain a spotless home that’s always available for showings, it can pay off when you sell your home faster than those who have rigid showing schedules.
