There are definitely a lot of ways for you to sell a home fast but the real deal is to sell a property fast without you having to compromise on the price you are asking for the property. First of all let’s get our checklist of the features which are on the must-have list of most people looking for a new home then let’s get to see what you have to work with and how you can bring the very best out of your property.
Property must-have check-list
- An open-concept kitchen
- Living room with enough space
- Light and airy spaces wherever possible
- Enough storage room
- One or more bathrooms which are perfectly equipped
- An outdoor space: let that be a garden, yard, terrace or a balcony
- Parking place
- Good area with schools, kindergarten and good traffic overall
How to find and fulfil the needs of your target audience
Of course the requirements slightly vary depending on the person and the type of home someone is looking for and some others may have specific things they need to have in a home. However the upper mentioned points stand for the large majority of the potential buyers. This is why you will need to adjust what you can offer to one or more specific target audience, just like real estate agents do.
Therefore, your first task would be to go through this list and see what you can do about it. Of course you won’t be able to change the living area: but you can surely find good things about it this or that way. This makes for finding the proper target audience ( individuals moving in alone, young couple’s first home, growing family, or elderly couple are the main audiences).
Work with high quality photos:
Bring the very best out of your home by doing great quality photos of your home ensuring all the attractive places get shown (yet only once and not one from 10 different angle which is a common mistake many sellers do).
Get the best real estate agent out there
There are better and worse agencies so you will need to do a little bit of a market research to find the agent you are looking for. The quality of photos, the wording of the ads and the name of the agency will also be of your help. If possible get a local agency, which is close to you, this way it will be easier to set up meetings and the agent has to have a very good knowledge of the area and the local prices too.
Declutter, clean and move out
The best thing to do if you want to ensure your property sells fast is to make sure you don’t live in it from the day your listing goes online. This is crucial in order to ensure you won’t get more stress than it is absolutely necessary. It will be easier to keep the place all clean and neat and you have the largest task already behind your back. Moving is a heavy duty task to do and it often needs a few weeks to complete therefore its best to start well in advance.
