Four Ways to Sell Your Home Faster Date: 1/18/2016 12:00:00 AM Author: Becky Kurschner Educational Opportunities: Articles Home > Education & Events > January 2016 > Four Ways to Sell Your Home Faster Share: In today’s market, buyers are harder to please and most won’t even consider a home if they’re not impressed with the pictures they see online. Typical buyers are looking for homes that are move in ready. Making small changes can help reduce the likelihood of your home getting skipped over. Eliminate Clutter Buyers need to picture their personal items in your home. Clearing up wall space, putting away knickknacks and organizing your garage are all great ways to clear up space. Organizing cabinets, pantries, and closets also helps showcase the open space in your home. Paint Although paint is one of the most inexpensive changes you can make, loud paint colors can scare away potential buyers. Consider repainting walls to neutral colors like greys and tans. Curb Appeal Make sure the outside of your home is tended to. Trim any shrubs, put in new flowers, and wash siding and windows. Make sure all outside trim is in good shape and isn’t chipping. Bathrooms and Kitchens These rooms may be the most expensive to update, but they are also what sells homes. Even last minute, cost-effective changes like replacing outdated hardware and faucets can change the entire look of your home. Any deferred maintenance on your property (could be as little as chipping paint) disqualifies certain borrowers based on the type of loan they are applying for. A finished home means it’s open to as many buyers as possible. Once improvements are made, find a realtor that best suites you and set up a meeting. These small tips will not only help you sell faster, they will also help you get top dollar for your home. A realtor can provide you with recent comparables to come up with the maximum value for your home. The more money you can get out of your old home means the more money you have to invest in a new home. Compeer Financial can help with any rural home purchase. That could mean a home on a lot or a home on 80 acres. It’s exciting for us to help people buying their first home, upgrading homes, or even finding their perfect retirement home.
