Want to sell your house? The last thing you want is your property being on the market for too long. Buyers become jaded over time and this will likely lead to incremental price drops. It is very frustrating for the seller, particularly if you are looking to dump the property quickly. Here are some tactics you should try to sell your home fast:
Try selling your property on eBay
There is no risk involved and it will sure get the attention you need to get buyers’ attention. A fee of only $150 is however applicable. eBay will draw attention on your home but the great thing about it is that you can just walk away in the end. This is because their auction is noncommittal; you can always change your mind even if someone has met your price.
Organize a neighborhood open house
Lure more buyers in by joining up your neighbors for a “barbecue” on a Sunday. You could even get a giant inflatable house for the kids to jump in on the backyard. Just to rally as much attention as possible on the house.
Advertise your home on a local billboard
This might sound far-fetched and expensive but it is actually not as expensive as many people may think. A billboard will catch a lot more buyers on a busy street. Remember to always include your contact information and a beautiful picture of your home. Do not exaggerate on the picture editing, the client will need to see the house anyway.
You could also go a step further and dress your children in “Buy MY Home” T-shirts and maybe their friends when sending them out to town. These wacky tactics often pay off. What is important to keep in mind is that there is no market limitation to selling your house so be diverse. Go out and see the trend and buck it. This in mind, you have to be willing to do what is necessary.
Big anxiety mistakes you should avoid when selling a house
Hiring the wrong broker
Getting a good broker is easy with a lot of ways to get to a trustworthy broker. Friends and colleagues could be the best way to get good personal recommendations. Just don’t go picking one recommended by someone in the real estate business. If anyone you trust from outside of the real estate business recommends a broker, you can count on him to sell house fast. You want an enthusiastic and self-driven broker that can steer the attention of buyers towards your property.
Failing to take the first quick bids
It is simply natural to get a spite of confidence once a buyer moves in early on your sale. It happens very often. Suddenly the seller feels as if his property is being fought over by a hundred rich tycoons. Naturally, you assume that there are bigger and more satisfying bids to be made. This is often a big mistake. That is often the best catch of the day let loose.
