So you have decided to sell your Sacramento home. You want to sell it fast. Maybe you have a new job in a new city. You have to relocate quickly, and you do not have much time to stay in town to take care of everything to make sure you get your home sold. Alternatively, maybe you are behind on some things and are trying to keep the house from going into foreclosure, but it is not there yet.
Whatever the reason, there are several things you can do to get your Sacramento home sold quickly, no matter what the current state of things. Looking for secrets to selling your Sacramento home fast? Check out what we have to say below:
Make Sure To Time Your Listing
There are things you can do to make sure the listing is timed correctly so that it sells quickly. After all, the faster you get your home sold, the fewer days you have to worry about making sure the home is kept up in a condition that makes it look like no one lives there, right? Moreover, timing, of course, is everything. Did you know that, according to a survey by Zillow, homes that were listed on a Saturday between May 1 and May 15 sold nine times faster than any other time of the year?
A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words
Most people find the house they ultimately end up buying online. Moreover, most of them make their decision based on the photos that they see online. If the pictures of your home do not put its best foot forward, prospective buyers may not even want to look at it. This is a case where people judge a book by its cover.
Have You Done A Good Cleaning Lately?
If things are ultra-messy, buyers are going to be turned off by that. If you are not confident in your skills for deep cleaning, hire an outside company to do it for you. People are not only more likely to buy a clean house, but they also tend to pay more.
Take Yourself Out Of The Equation
We know you love all of your little knick-knacks and personal touches. However, it can be tough for a buyer to picture themselves in space when your high school and college graduation pictures, and your kids, and grandkids photos, are all over the place. Moreover, your cousin’s nephews, neighbor’s kids’ artwork is on the fridge. Depersonalize the place and make it easier for prospective buyers to picture themselves in the space.
Clear Your Schedule
When it comes to being ready to show your home, you may want to clear your schedule. This is because it is not about your time at this point, but the buyers’. They want to be able to see a home when they can, not when you have time to show it to them. Being available to show a house when the buyer is available to see it is going to make the difference in making the sale or not.
You might like that cozy feel with much furniture, and much stuff, all around. However, that stuff and clutter make the home feel smaller. Only keep the essential furniture. At most, a living room needs a sofa, loveseat coffee table, and some end tables. Of course, if there is room, it is okay to have maybe one armchair and an entertainment center. However, only if it does not make the room crowded and cluttered looking, and there is still plenty of room to move.
If you make use of some of the tips here, your home will hit the market and be off of it faster than you can blink.
