Selling a house might sound like something that is impossible to achieve without expertise help, but believe me, you can sell your house in any market if you put your mind to it. Most people have found it difficult in recent times to sell their homes, but I will give you the critical tools to help sell your house in less than a month.
1. Pricing your house
The most important thing whenever you are selling something is making sure that your price is competitive. Thus; you should price your house at a price that is affordable, and that suits the state of your house and putting into consideration its location. There are several factors that you could use to price your house such as location, size of the house, the size of the land it sits on etc. All these are necessary tools when valuing your home and believe me, when you include this in your advert you will get your right candidate for that house.
2. Time your advertising
Whenever you are selling your house, make sure to time the advertising right. Advertise it when you are certain you are ready to sell and have made all necessary repairs to make the house more marketable. Make sure your advert is catchy and it should stand out from the rest as this can separate your home from other ordinary houses advertised within the same vehicle that you would be using for the advert. On the same note, make sure that all the popular advertising channels do carry your advert and most importantly make sure that your advert is repeated endlessly within short periods as this can make it start appealing to a wider clientele. There are quite a number of ways to advertise for example, real estate portals, single property website, social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.), you have the power in the palm of your hand to make that house available to a sea of potential clients.
3. Be convincing
When you start getting enquiries about your place make sure that you have set it in such a way that whoever comes for viewing would imagine himself/herself living in that house. Use the power of making someone visualizing your house as their own. How do you do this? You would achieve this by making sure that the house is empty and there aren’t any items that might distract them during viewing. Thus making sure the house is depersonalized. Anyone who wants to buy a house would like to view a house that is spotlessly clean, this would keep the buyer much more interested in touring the house, which brings us to another important tip, tidy the house as I have mentioned above, remove all the unnecessary equipment in the house, if possible make sure the house is totally empty. Take away personal photos.
4. Pictures tell a story
Pictures of what the house would look like when full furnished, such as images’ showing what exactly goes where and how it would look if the house was full with furniture would easily sell the house. This would illustrate and give a vivid picture of the capacity the house can accommodate in terms of space. Always present all your potential clients with a photo album of how the house would look like when fully furnished. This also applies to your adverts, make sure that there are plenty of pictures of the house. The house should be easy to showcase, that is whenever a potential buyer wishes to come for viewing, always make it available, whether in it’s in the morning, evening or even weekends with little notice. This would show that you are ready to hand over the house to them. When the clients are viewing, give them some alone time in order for them to discuss freely about what they don’t like or like about the house, this would make them feel a lot less like intruders.
