In today’s sluggish economy, selling your home is far from a speedy affair. Keep reading for three tips to expedite the process.
Consider Your Signage
One creative idea for your “for sale” sign is to pimp it out with solar lights, so that it’s visible at night to passing civilians. Another great tip is to use actionable language on your signage, such as “Come in today,” or “Take advantage of this great offer today!”
Prove Your Home’s Value
Rather than waiting for a prospective buyer to request important paperwork, speed up the process by having documentation at your fingertips, as soon as your home is listed. Think: receipts for home improvements, new appliances and maintenance, low crime statistics for your neighborhood, or rankings and information for schools in the areas.
Stage Your Home
Home staging is an expert practice that has trickled down over the years. You don’t necessarily need an expert to stage your home but it could be helpful and save you time and money in the long run. Keep in mind when you stage: depending on how long it takes for your home to sell, you may end up living in your staged house for months. If the cost of a professional stager is not feasible and your real estate doesn’t provide the service in-house, consider staging your home yourself.
