We’ve all heard about how "poor" the housing market is performing. Fortunately, there are ways of selling a home fast that don’t require you to settle for less than your home is worth. In today’s market, sellers are savvier than ever and have developed various techniques for tapping into the buyer’s market. We are going to teach you a few of those tips so that hopefully, you can apply them when selling a home.
Post Videos of Your Home – One of the best ways to gain massive attention and to get your home sold quick is to post videos of it on YouTube. High quality cameras sell for about $100, which are recommended, and posting them online will take as little as a few minutes. When filming, make sure that you are walking through all of the areas of your home, not just the ones you think buyers will like the most. If you skip areas like the bathroom or garage then the buyers may think that something is wrong with them.
On the same note, walk down your neighborhood and explain to potential buyers why you believe it is a good place to live. Selling a home is as easy as having a potential buyer fall in love with a nearby coffee shop or bakery. You would be surprised by the kind of attention you receive when you post a video of your home on the Internet.
Get the Neighbors Involved – If you are going to throw an open house and allow potential buyers to visit your home, why not invite your neighbors? Turn it into a block party. If buyers can see that you live in a friendly neighborhood where everyone knows everyone, they will be much more likely to close the sale. Plus, it creates opportunities. Maybe someone will show up who may not have been interested themselves, but knows someone who is.
Go Social – Create social media listings on all of your social networking accounts. For example, if you have a Facebook or Twitter then posts a few photos and videos of your home on them. Even if you only have a few hundred friends, everyone will see them and it will provide you with that much more exposure.
Upkeep Everything – When selling a home, it is a good idea to upkeep everything and removing all clutter from both the inside and outside of your home. Showing a clean and tidy property will dramatically increase the popularity and interest in your home. Take care of little nicks and scratches and fix any loose doorknobs. Doing the small things now will add up and really increase the value of your home.
Stage the Outside of Your Home – The final tip we have when looking for someone to "buy my house" is to stage the exterior. Basically, do whatever you need to do to make the outside of your home look new, fresh, and unique. And this doesn’t have to be very expensive either. Simply adding some fresh paint, potted flowers at the door, and a some landscaping can all increase your home’s appeal. People can be very easy to please and staging the exterior of your home is like an invite inside. Once they see that the outside is taken care of, they only have to assume that the inside is the same way. From there, you have them hooked.
