If you’re looking to sell your home quickly, you know it’s not a simple task. Fortunately, there are several avenues you can take to sell your home fast.
Post on Social Media
Never underestimate who you can reach with your social network! Friends or family who’ve been in your home over the years might know the perfect person for you to sell it too and share pictures with them. They’ll also be more likely to trust that they’re making a good purchase if they know you, even if it’s through a mutual acquaintance.
Host Numerous Open Houses
Another way to sell your home fast is to host as many open houses as possible. The more opportunities that people can see your home in person, the more likely it is to sell. Plan to have an open house every weekend and at least once during the week. It may also be beneficial to hold an open house during “normal” work hours so that someone who works an irregular schedule can see it. Be sure to post about the open houses on your social networks as well so you can reach a wider audience.
Keep Your Home Furnished
For open houses and online photos, you’ll want to have your home be furnished. This will help prospective buyers envision themselves living in your house. If you’ve already moved out, work with a local company to rent furniture until your home sells.
Sell Your Home “As Is”
Part of what takes so long when you’re selling a home is the need to fix potential issues that traditional buyers want fixed. However, if you list your home to be sold “as is”, you aren’t required to make any additional changes. It’ll also interest developers or contractors who look to buy homes to fix them up themselves.
Sell It to a Cash Buyer
If you don’t want to host open houses or do any of the above suggestions, one of the fastest ways to sell your home quickly is by selling it to a cash buyer. A cash buyer will evaluate your home, conduct research on it and the area, and then they’ll make you a cash offer upfront. Normally the whole process takes less than a week.
