Quick Home Sales: How to Sell Your House Fast

by Staff

Recent home sales trends show that now is the perfect time to list your home.

At the same time, listing your home and selling your home are two very different situations. Most homes sit on the market for weeks, if not months, before talks with buyers get serious.

But if you’re looking to speed up the process, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading for advice on how to make quick home sales without getting ripped off in the process.

List as FSBO

FSBO stands for ‘for sale by owner’ and means that the seller isn’t going through a real estate agent as most homeowners do and it’s a win-win situation for both buyer and seller.

For buyers, it means that they’ll likely get a better deal on the home as they’ll have more haggling power.

But the true power lies with you, the homeowner, looking to sell your house fast. The biggest advantage is that you’ll earn more from your quick property sale since you don’t have to pay an agent’s commission fee.

At the same time, an FSBO listing isn’t for everyone. Agents know exactly how to list a home to attract attention. If you’re unfamiliar with the process, you could end up wasting a lot of time and money detailing the perfect listing and staging a welcoming open house.

Repair and Remodel

Whether you choose to list your home as FSBO or through an agency, it’s always a good idea to invest a little bit of money in some good old-fashioned remodeling.

Studies show that the top rooms that interest buyers are the master bedroom, the kitchen, and the living room. As such, you’ll want to focus on fixing up these three rooms first.

Adding new fixtures or even a fresh coat of paint can raise the value of these rooms by thousands of dollars.

Sell Your Home As-Is

By the same token, not everyone has the luxury of having the time or money to invest in repairs. Sometimes you just want to get rid of your home as quickly as possible without any of the fuss.

If that sounds familiar, you can always consider selling your home in its current condition.

One of the biggest real estate trends of the past decade is house flipping. Companies will pay cash for a home regardless of its condition, then invest in repairs and sell it for more money.

The process rarely takes more than a few days, meaning that you could have cold hard cash in your hands before you know it. If you’re interested in learning more about the process, including how you can find a company in your area, type ‘sell house for cash‘ into your web browser or check out the link above.

Tips for Quick Home Sales

Selling your home doesn’t have to be a headache-inducing endeavor. Sellers have more options than ever when it comes to listing their homes, so consider what’s best for you.
