Selling a house is not an easy job, especially if you plan to get the highest amount possible for it. In many cases, houses put up for sale by the owners still need some work done, and in just as many cases, the homeowners are not willing to make those final investments that will help with the sale. A friendly advice would be to fix anything that could lower your property’s price, preferably before putting it up for sale. If potential buyers see the same house listed twice, with improvements on the second listing, they will start wondering what is wrong about it. Regardless, below are some tips that will help you market your house for a fast sale.
#1. Do a good clean-up before listing your house
A faulty and unappealing house is unlikely to sell fast, at the price that you ask. For this, you should start cleaning it and giving it a fresh appearance. Paint the doors, frames and window frames, as this small detail will offer your property a flawless look. Also, try to improve the curb appeal of your home as much as possible and this will make it look better in your listing photos and will make potential buyers more interested in viewing your home. Alternatively, you could hire a cleaning company to help you with this part, which, honestly speaking, isn’t the most entertaining.
#2. List your property on reliable platforms
Now that your property is looking flawless and that you took some amazing pictures of it, in some of the best angles, you should start searching for a reliable listing website. Search for local directories, or nationwide ones, which allow a facile filtering process by area. This will increase your chances significantly.
#3. Consider an SEO-friendly listing announcement
Search for a San Diego digital marketing agency and ask them to create an SEO-friendly listing announcement. Depending on what keywords are locally popular and on a high demand, they will be able to design your announcement in such a fashion to pop up higher in the houses listed. Also, this will make it more likely to be easily found in Search Engine results. This may seem like a hassle in your process, but trust us, it’s completely worth it.
#4. Provide as much information as possible
Before viewing a house, potential buyers will want to learn more about it. Include a full list of appliances that come with the property, a list of special features, not only the number of bedrooms and bathrooms that your property has. Make sure that potential buyers learn before viewing your house if the backyard was designed with the help of a landscaping team and other similar aspects. These matter a lot.
Keep in mind the pieces of advice above and never list your property in the old-fashioned and ineffective way. Buyers are digitalized now and making sure that you reach closer to them in the online should be your first line of action.
