"I want to have my property sit on the market with no offer" said no seller EVER! The last thing a seller wants is for your home to sit on the market for months without any viable offers! Below are six shortcuts you can take to make selling your house easier and faster. The best part is that none of these tips will break the bank!
Staging your home usually pays off. On average, staged homes sell 88% faster and for 20% more than unstaged homes. However, staging can be quite costly. If you're on a budget, there's a cheaper alternative. Vistual staging is a service where tech-savy professionals take photos of empty rooms and then use photo-editiing software to add couches, tables and other furnishings. These photos can make your online listing more appealing to home buyers!
2. CURB APPEAL
There's no doubt that home buyers form their first impression when they pull up to your house. How your home looks from the outside can boost your property's sales value up to 17%! Now I know what you're thinking, Professional landscaping can cost a lot of money! Luckily, there are options where you can opt for a less-intensive standard lawn care treatment which is not pricey. However, in return, you can yield a whopping 303% return according to the National Association of Realtors. Another option is to get out there, roll up your sleeves and tend to the front yard with your two hands!
Snail mail marketing can cost a lot of money. If saving is a priority for you, an alternative to use is social media marketing- promoting your listing on facebook, twitter, and instagram. To increase your visibility on these platforms, you can include video tours, floor plans and professional photos with your listing!
