If you want to sell your home before the end of the year, you need to be prepared to take an active role in getting buyers through the door. Trying to beat the market is an uphill battle, here are a few strategies to help you sell your house fast.
Blast Your Listing
If you’re trying to sell your home on the traditional market one of the best ways to save time is to blast your listing. Some realtors only list on their own website or not at all, trying to “double-end” the deal to keep 100 percent of the commission for themselves. This limits competing bids on your property. It’s often up to you to make sure your listing is EVERYWHERE. There are plenty of real-estate listing websites out there and if you want your house sold fast you want to be on all of them. Make use of the local papers and community bulletin boards, and inquire about feature listings at kiosks in shopping centers and malls. The higher profile your listing is, the more people will see it and the faster your house will sell.
Focus Your Listing
Don’t waste time on the wrong buyers. Every location has a buyer focus. Figure out what type of person is looking to move into your area and focus your attention on locating these buyers. Make sure your listing is designed with them in mind. Pinpointing their voice and dreams will go a long way toward closing the deal quickly.
Everybody knows someone who knows someone else who is in the market for a home. Networking isn’t just for business. Get your name out there, be seen. Many houses are sold on word of mouth alone – make sure your listing is screaming, not whispering. Getting your face out there may seem daunting, but if you want your home sold quick your friends and neighbors can be an invaluable resource.
