No matter how much you love your home, sooner or later there may come a time when you want to sell and move on, but what are the 3 things that can speed up a sale?
How to sell a home fast
While many factors that affect how long it takes to sell a home are beyond your control, there are some things you can do to speed up a sale.
- Competitive pricing: Your home will sell faster if you price it on the lower end of the averages in your area.
- Completed repairs: Sprucing up your home leading up to the sale is equally if not more important than when you actually list it.
- Staging and decluttering: According to the Real Estate Staging Association, professionally listed staged properties simply look better; spend 73 percent less time on the market; typically sell for more money; even end up on buyers’ “must see” lists; are viewed as “well-maintained;” and have fewer concessions requested of the seller.
