Most sellers have a clear target when they decide to sell their house: they want a quick sale and at the best price. However, in the vast majority of cases, a quick sale does not go hand in hand at the best price, so … do you have to choose between time and price?
Within the sector, there are several theories on which is the best way to sell your apartment. However, the “fast sale” objective varies greatly depending on factors such as: the city, the area of the city where the house is located, the price level of the market and even the particular street and the particular building. Variables aside, there are some strategies that can help you:
Sell below the market price
It does not sound very good, it is true but it is an instrument that can get you out of a hurry if you need to get the money from the fast sale. In any case, it is something that must be assessed in each particular case.
If you really need to sell fast, putting a price slightly below the average for the area will undoubtedly be a magnet for those interested.
Or on the contrary, putting a lower price can also be a strategy to get many offers and have to compete with each other. Imagine that you sell in an area where prices are high and it has a lot of demand. In this context, putting a slightly lower price will have you dozens of offers and you can start an auction to the highest bidder.
The homes that are nice, well maintained and well-presented are also often the first to sell and at a better price. For this reason, it is not nonsense to invest in the presentation of your house if you want to sell it fast. Preparing the house means doing things like:
- Remove all those furniture and personal objects that have a visual charm.
- Paint the walls so you have a fresh look.
- Clean the floor, fix the white joints or replace the parquet if it is badly damaged.
- Make all the little repairs that are necessary so that everything is impeccable.
- You can invest in a professional Home Staging service, which are very effective for sale.
Trust your API agent and do not lie in the benefits
An API agent will help you to sell your home faster, because they are professionals in the industry and know how the market is and what can be done to increase the visits of your house or apartment. Therefore, when it comes to detailing the features and benefits of the home, do not try to hide things that can play against you, such as; that there are humidifies in a little visible corner. It can happen that a visitor sees it unexpectedly, does not like the lack of sincerity and backs out.
To avoid this type of situation, the ideal is to make a kind of “technical inspection” of your house. Hire a maintenance company that can accredit in writing that they have reviewed the facilities and that everything is in good condition. As a seller you will feel more confident and the possible buyer will appreciate the fact of having more guarantees.
Make an effort to have the best possible presentation and you will be able to sell your house faster and at a better price.
