Have you ever sold your home before? Or, you have sold, but still don’t have the right judgement for it? Then, worry not! We completely understand that there is a lot of work that goes into the procedure. From maintenance of the home to finding an agent, it’s no big surprise that so many things fall through the cracks.
And, if something left untouched, your buyers may get distracted. So, to hold back your clients and to sell your home fast, below mention is the ‘to-do’ list that you should not ignore.
- Make sure the doorbell rings
Although it’s the smallest thing, but holds the attention of every buyer. So, as a seller, you must check that the doorbell rings. And, if it needs any kind of repair, do it on priority. Remember, ignoring it may cost you your home deal.
- Clean every corner of the home from inside
Potential buyers might seem to be little arguing, of course they will be, as they are buying a home for themselves. So, make sure that the house is fully clean from inside, i.e., from cupboards to cabinets, oven to refrigerator, and so on. Cleaning doesn’t mean you need to make the surface of your home shiny, but you need to clean the corners, small spaces, and every ignored inch of your home.
- Google your address
We know that not every buyer is open to the access to the internet, but they should understand that they must use internet, and make searches related to real estate of their country, or location. This gives an idea that which property is being sold the most, and what people are talking about their property or location. So, make sure that as a seller, you google your home address in order to check the updates.
- Maintain your social media marketing
Once you’re done with arranging your home, choosing competitive prices, and listing it; now, it’s time to advertise your property on social media channels. Nowadays updates like floor designs, video tour of your home, and photos are a must to sell your home quickly.
- Account for problems and improvements
If you’ve lived in your home for some time, make a list of problems as well as improvements that need to be resolved before you sell it to others. This can include, pipe leakage in the basement, floor damage, chimney repair, and so on. So, if you can solve the issue, well and good; but, if you can’t, don’t ever hide it from the buyers.
- Keep an eye on the agent’s references
There is something you have to do from the very first moment and this is finding the best real estate agent for you. Keep in mind that an unskilled agent can cost you time, money, and effort. Try to get in touch with one of the real estate experts. For this, you might want to ask friends or relatives for references.
- You can make inquiries to yourself, the moment you check on references like:
- Would you suggest this individual? Why? For what reason not?
- Did you trust your real estate agent?
- Do you think that he/she has discussed well on your behalf?
- Did your agent reply call/emails on time?
- Would you suggest this person to any other seller? Why or Why not?
