Quick tips for a fast home sale in any market
1. Price your property correctly from the beginning
When you think about how much you want to get for your property, don’t forget that setting the right list price is just as important as making any other decisions. A wrong list price can have a negative effect on your property’s value.
How to determine the right list price?
Real estate agents use a variety of methods to estimate a home’s worth, but the most popular is the Comparative Market Analysis or CMA. This analysis compares your home’s price with other homes in your area that have recently sold and is often used for appraisal purposes as well.
2. Stage it with the right furniture and decor
Decorating a home for staging can be both fun and challenging. It is important to have a clear vision of what you want the space to look like before you start shopping for furniture and accessories. The following are five important things to keep in mind when staging a property.
- What is your style?
2. Are you going for a contemporary, traditional, or country vibe?
3. What colors will you use?
Knowing the details of these items will help you narrow down your furniture searches.
In order to bring the space together, it is necessary to add plenty of surface area. For example, coffee tables or side tables with plenty of surface area offer plenty of room for decor items and you can experiment with different styles until finding one that fits your needs best; large open shelving units can also work well.
3. Make a strong first impression
The first impression is the most important impression. Make sure your home is clean, smells good, and is tidy. You may need to spend some time accomplishing these things before putting your house on the market.
Also, don’t forget about landscaping. Curb appeal is definitely a thing! Plant fresh flowers or plants, pull weeds and trim any overgrown hedges. You want a potential buyer’s first impression to be a strong one.
4. Use emotional marketing tactics
Emotion drives human decision-making, and emotional marketing is a way to tap into this. Emotional content can elicit feelings of happiness, excitement, and nostalgia. It can also make people feel anger or sadness.
Emotional marketing tactics are proven to be effective at driving action. Emotionally driven content is more likely to get a potential buyers attention to want to see the house in the first place.
5. Host both virtual and real-life open houses
Hosting a virtual open house is not as effective as hosting one in person. It will never give the same experience to an audience as they would get if they were there. The host can’t pick up on their subtle body language and can’t use it to gauge what they are interested in and what they might like to hear more about.
