When I researched “how to sell my Philadelphia Pa house fast” on Google and the result was 153.000.000 links, I was sure that home owners like you felt overwhelmed and didn’t exactly know where to start.
So, here’s the deal, there’s no specific recipe for selling your house fast considering all the items that differentiate your place from others. However, I will show you 5 ways to sell your Philly house fast that will definitely guide you on the right direction.
1. Price it right – put the feelings apart.
The market doesn’t care how much you own and every repair you have done to your house, so get over it. I understand it’s difficult to put aside all the great memories, but to avoid taking it personal, look at your house as a “ticket” to your next destination.
If you really need to sell your house fast, you have got to price it right. But, how to price it right? Look for similar houses in your area that sold within the past 6 months, reach out to the competition and go to open houses to check what they are offering. Invite brokers over to your house and ask them how much would they price the house if you want to sell it within a certain amount of days. If you follow all those tips you will have a clean number in mind.
2. Declutter – less stuff, more space.
Let’s keep short and simple on this one. Buyers need to visualize how their belongings would fit in each room, so get rid of all the clutter and the rooms will look bigger.
3. Clean – people buy with their nooses too.
It seems basic, but I’ve seem uncountable houses that were covered in pure dust. Vacuum all the rooms and dust all the furniture. If you have pets, eliminate the odor and put them in a safe place while the buyers are looking through the house. Make sure the most important rooms in the house, kitchen and bathrooms, smell good. You can bake some cookies and offer the buyers; I bet they would appreciate it.
4. Make it bright – Small updates that make a difference
We are not talking about a full renovation. Look around and find things that need to be replaced such as toilet sit and shower curtain. Maybe, you can paint that custom wall, make it neutral and more appealing to home buyers. Don’t forget the curbe appeal, you have just one chance to make a first good impression. Cut the grass and trim all the plants in the yard and bring color with some flowers.
5. Marketing – Tell everybody
If you are not tech savvy, ask your children or neighbor to take some nice pics of your house and publish on line on free websites, such as Craigslist, if you want to sell l your property on your own. Blast emails to all your contacts and put a “For Sale by Owner” in front of the house. Use your creativity to get the word out there. Otherwise, interview a few realtors and hire the one you feel most confident with.
