Selling a home can be stressful. The process could take weeks or even months and leave you reeling under paperwork and red tape. And yet after all the hard work, your home could sell for a lot less than what you’d hoped for or less than the market rate. If you’re short on time and looking to sell your home, here are a few tips to help you:
1. Hire the Right Real Estate Agent
Some agents specialize in quick sales. They understand the mechanisms of home selling and use them to your advantage. This could include listing a home for a low price but selling it for a higher price, aggressive marketing, or having a good grasp of the real estate market in your neighborhood.
But keep in mind, such expertise comes at a price. The standard real estate commission is around 6% and is split between the sales agent and buyer’s agent. Some agents can charge a flat fee that can set you back a few thousand dollars. If you cannot afford to spend so much money, this may not be your best option.
2. Harness the Power of Social Media
Make an interesting video of your home and post in on social media. You could also post images and captions with interesting content. Ask your friends and family to share this information. Before taking photos or videos, make sure the home is staged well and get rid of clutter. A freelance photographer could also be helpful if you want to really show off your house in the best way possible.
