Wondering how to sell your house fast? Typically, selling a home can often take months, even years. Just check out these tactics for selling your house fast if time is of the essence.
How to sell your house fast with a good price
While everyone dreams of selling their home for top dollar, if you need to sell quickly, this is one time to price your home on the modest end even a bit below its actual value.
Set a hard deadline
You can make this clear in your listing by saying you will be accepting offers only until a certain date even as tight as one to two weeks after your home is listed for sale. That said, you should probably not announce why you need to sell quickly due to a new job or other circumstance, because buyers will smell desperation and take advantage of that. Just state your deadline without further explanation, and watch the offers roll in.
Selling your house to a flipper
There's no faster home sale out there than to a flipper. These buyers enable you to usually sell the home as is often for cash removing the burden of costly home repairs.
But there are downsides: Flippers may demand below-market price, so they can resell it later for a larger profit. So just be sure your flipper isn't fleecing you up the wazoo; at the very least, compare offers from two or more investors so they can't steamroll you.
“Some sellers offer cash for the buyer’s agent if a full-price offer is received by a specific date,” says Wendy Flynn. Other times, the incentive is for the buyer who might score a refrigerator or other furniture for acting fast.
Selling your home to a developer
It may sound drastic, but if you want to sell simply and quickly, consider selling directly to a developer. That person would purchase your home for the value of its land, tear down the property, and build a new one in its place.
The benefit for the seller is that the condition of the home is irrelevant; it’s going to be torn down anyway. The downside is the seller has to reconcile the fact that their home will cease to exist, which can be tough emotionally.
Avoid guaranteed sales programs
If you ever see a sign that reads, “If we don’t sell your home in 30 days, we’ll buy it,” run away fast.
These are complete scams, here’s how it usually works: The real estate agent promises to list a home for a fixed period of time and if it’s not sold, he or she will buy it directly from the seller.
Talk to your neighbors
Before you list your home on the market, check in with the locals. They may sell your home fast for you!
Lots of times, people want to live near relatives or they’re looking to buy in their own neighborhood.
Do potential buyers want to view your home at 6 p.m. on a Saturday? The best bet to sell your house fast is to let ’em in.
Ease of showing is a huge factor in whether a home sells quickly. When a buyer is ready, willing, and able, you can strike while the iron is hot.
