First and foremost, the simplest way you can help sell your West Knoxville home fast is to hire the right West Knoxville realtor. A realtor plays an essential role than many sellers realize.
Let us explain.
When you’re trying to sell your home, it’s much more than just snapping a few picture with a smartphone and posting it on the MLS. To successfully find the right buyer and sell your home as fast as possible, your home needs to marketed properly so that they right buyer can find it. This is more than just the MLS and putting a sign in the front yard. A successful marketing plan has multiple outlets where buyers are able to find your home.
You need a realtor who will know how to market your home and also know how to help you price your home effectively.
It may sound crazy that you should make your home less personal. It is, after all, your home. You’ve got countless memories there, so it can be hard to make it feel less personal than it already is. But in order to successfully sell your home, making it less personal can go a long way.
Have you ever walked into someone else home that’s surrounded by pictures and personal items? You can see them living in their house. You see the happy memories of their family and the personal items that they have strewn around their house. Even though they may not be there, you can still feel their presence in their home. You don’t want buyers to have the same feeling when they walk through your home. You want them to be able to picture themselves there.
So, before you list your home, take the pictures down and pack them away. Not only will this help you sell your home quickly, it will also give you a head start on your packing.
90% of home buyers start their home search online, according to data from the National Association of Realtors.
This means a majority of home buyers will see your home prior to walking inside of it. The pictures that are online make a world of difference. If your realtor isn’t set up to take professional grade pictures, consider hiring someone who is. Oftentimes, it’s much more affordable than you may realize. Keep in mind, though, there are many realtors who have the equipment to take great pictures of a home. When it comes to selling your home, a picture truly is worth a million words.
In addition, consider getting your home staged. There are many stagers that offer different packages to sellers and are very reasonable. There is evidence that staged homes sell faster and for for money. So, for a little extra cash, you may be able to see an increase in your bottom line.
Just as personal items can be distracting to a buyer, so can junk and clutter. You may have a beautifully decorated home, but there are sometimes where less is more. Before you list your home, be sure to clear out any junk and clutter.
A home will feel more spacious when you’ve cleared out some of the things cluttering your home. When you kitchen counter tops are filled with stuff, it can be distracting to the potential of your home. Before you list your home, go through your home and clear out some of the things cluttering counter tops and shelves in your home. It will also give you a head start on some of your packing.
Finally, spending money on the right upgrades can go a long way when you want to sell your West Knoxville home fast. You don’t necessarily need to spend a fortune either.
A nice neutral paint job can go a long way in a home and you don’t necessarily need to spend a fortune on it. Pick colors that are simple and neutral that any buyer could move into a home and not have to worry about. Updating any outdated flooring can go a long day as well.
In addition, updating your home’s hardware and light fixtures can go a long way as well. They can immediately (and cost effectively) update your home in a way that makes a large difference to buyers.
