I had to sell my house fast because I
needed money right away to move with.
My job had me relocate, and I couldn’t just wait to sell to the highest bidder. Here are the things I did to make sure I got money fast for my home.
When I looked at the home I had there were a lot of problems that were clear. There are so many ways to deal with them but I had to make sure that whatever was done was completed for cheap.
The problems it that if you try to pay a ton of money to fix something, it may not make you that money back when you sell a home. That’s why I made sure to factor in the cost and then see if it was able to be made back and then some before selling.
To sell my house fast I learned how to write a listing.
The best way to do this is if you try to think of all of the ways this house can benefit someone. How much money will it cost, and what does it come with?
You can also mention the neighborhood, but don’t be surprised if you don’t get as many results as if you just covered the basics quickly since people have short attention spans.
In my listings, I had photos of the house that were taken of the exterior. I also included some that showed off each room, including the living room. There were photos of the bathroom, kitchen, and from the door of each room looking in to show how much space it had.
Of course, before I did the photos I cleared the rooms out of anything but the bare essentials. I wanted someone to see what they were buying, not what my stuff looked like because it made it look smaller anyway to have my items in the pictures.
A house is not something that I thought would take a long time to sell but after a while of waiting, I figured out that I needed to negotiate with people better.
At first, I was listing my home for the price I was willing to take and that’s it.
In other words, people thought I would take less because a lot of the time you see homes priced at higher than they’re worth so that people can talk down the price.
With anything you sell to someone, try to have the price a little higher and you’ll make them feel like they’re getting a deal if you’re smart.
Someone told me that my house looked busy when they were looking at it to buy it. Turns out, I had a lot of art on the walls that weren’t helping because it was all setup in a way that made it hard to notice anything else.
I found that by staggering them, it made the people looking at the home think there was more space.
If you make sure not everything on the walls is in a straight line, you have people exploring the home with their eyes more!
After I was able to sell my house fast, it was a huge relief. The problem with a lot of these kinds of things is that it takes forever to get a good amount of money for a home. I’m glad I did what I did and that the results were awesome.
