Home Selling Tips – Sell Your Home Faster Using These Great Tips

December 30th, 2007 · No Comments

Many people are having a very difficult time selling their home today. The market for most of the country is considered a buyers market. If you plan on selling your home fast then consider these few tips.

Always price your home two percent lower than the current market value. Notice I said current market value. Many people price their home on what they think it should sell for versus what it actually will sell for. You can’t base your value one what you paid for it or what it appraised for six months ago when you refinanced it. You must base your selling price on an accurate appraisal. There are several ways to get a good home appraisal but the most accurate is to pay for one. This type of professional appraisal will normally cost between two hundred and five hundred dollars. Once you get an accurate appraisal then price it lower than the appraised price.

Improve the landscaping around your home before trying to sell it. Most people today will look at a property from the outside before asking to look at the inside. In fact many people will look at the property online before deciding to drive by and look at it, so make sure your landscaping looks great.

Always make sure your home is not cluttered and is perfectly, spotlessly cleaned. There should be no odors present when someone walks into your home. The bathrooms and kitchens should be spotless. Don’t lose a sale because it is a mess. Always advertise on the internet even if you are using a real estate agent. Find as many places that allow free advertising as possible and post good pictures of your home for sale
