Sell Your Home Quickly with These Tips

Friday, December 27, 2013

Whether you’re upgrading to a bigger home or downsizing to a modest condominium, you’ll have to sell your current house before you can move. However, with Vancouver’s competitive real estate market, the time it will take between hanging the “For Sale” and “Sold” signs might take interminably long. If you need to sell your house quickly, here are a few tips to help you along:

Get an experienced real estate agent
Yes, hiring an agent is an additional cost but there is no faster way to sell your house than to tap professional services. An agent can post your property on multiple listing services to help it gain wider exposure, as well as arrange viewings for interested parties. Once your house is bought, an agent can also handle all the paperwork and legal requirements so you can focus on preparing for the move.

Set a reasonable price
Everyone wants to get top dollar for their house, but be realistic when it comes to pricing yours. Research comparable home prices in your area and set your asking price around those figures. You might even want to price it a bit lower—the relatively cheaper price attracts a lot of attention and encourages competing bids from buyers.

Improve curb appeal

Looks aren’t everything, but buyers are more likely to purchase an aesthetically pleasing home than a displeasing one. Clear up the clutter, mow your lawn, change your doors and windows, and repaint your house to give it a quick make over.
