Tips to Sell Your Home Faster


1. Make Buyers Feel at Home

Declutter your home! Pack away all personal items like pictures, awards, and sentimental

belongings. Make them feel like they belong in this house. According to the Profile of Home

Staging by the National Association of Realtors, “83% of buyers’ agents said staging a home

made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.”


Not only will your house spend less time on the market, but the same report mentioned that,

“One-quarter of buyers’ agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered

between 1 – 5%, compared to other similar homes on the market that were not staged.”


2. Keep It Organized

Since you took the time to declutter, keep it organized. Before buyers arrive, pick up toys,

make the bed, and put away clean dishes. According to the same report, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms to stage in order to attract more buyers. Put out a scented candle or some cookies fresh from the oven. Buyers will remember the smell of your home.


3. Price It Right

More inventory coming into the market guarantees there will be some competition. You want

to make sure your home is noticed. The key to selling your house in 2019 is ensuring it is

Priced to Sell Immediately (PTSI). This means you’ll be driving more traffic to your property,

and ultimately creating more interest in your home.


4. Give Buyers Full Access

One of the top four elements when selling your home is access. If your home is available

anytime, that opens up more opportunity to find a buyer right away. Some buyers, especially

those relocating, don’t have much time available. If they cannot get into the house, they will

move on to the next one.


Bottom Line

If you want to sell your home in the least amount of time at the best price with as little hassle

as possible, a local real estate professional is a useful guide. Let’s connect today to find out

what you need to do to sell your home as quickly as possible.
