Last week, Money Magazine published an article talking about how demanding home buyers have become. I can honestly say that I agree. If you are going to sell a house this year, then you need to be prepared. What do buyers want the most? Access to see your house at their convenience. So give it to them! If you want to sell your house fast, then act fast. Low interest rates are definitely helping the real estate market right now.
What's the plan for selling a house fast according to Money Magazine?
- Sell your house first, then buy another one.
- Market your house for sale, don't just list it.
- Negotiate the real estate commission.
- Price your house right (the first time).
- Create curb appeal (invest in landscaping).
- Fix anything that is broken or needs repair (I say this all the time).
- Clean your house.
- Put a timeframe on selling your house (to sell your house fast, take advantage of Spring and Summer)
