You’re wondering how to sell your house for the most money? Isn’t that a bit odd? Want to do it as soon as possible? Well, alright, we’ll cut the whole “you might be asking too much” part. Instead, we’ll try to give you a bit of friendly advice. Curious about what that might be? Check out the article below to see some tips for selling a house fast for the most money.

Find the right pair of helping hands

Sometimes the best option is the most obvious one. In other words: sometimes the best option is to leave all the work to someone else. In this case – an experienced local real estate agent. Having someone on your side who knows the local market down to the smallest detail is a big plus. If they can help folks choose the best location for their business, they can surely help you sell your home. Of course, realtors don’t work for free. Their expenses might cost about 6-7% of your home’s worth. Still, this can be to your advantage since they can sell your home for a price that will make both sides happy (the seller and the agent, which is).

Smart home staging might just do the trick

You might want to think about the way you’ll stage your home for potential buyers. Your offline presentation needs to be perfect. Making your home more appealing by thinking about all the details a potential buyer might notice, you’ll stand out from the competition. The trick is to put yourself in the shoes of the buyer. Think about what you can do to enhance the curb appeal of the home you’re about to sell. It’s the little tasks, like repainting the exterior of your home such as walls, the front door and even the garage entrance, buyers value the appearances the most.

Decluttering is essential

There probably isn’t such a thing as creative mess (when staging your home for sale). Of course, it sounds artsy and free-spirited, but not a single buyer wants to see a home filled with lots of items that only mean something to the person selling the house. We’re sorry if we’re being blunt here – that’s the way it is. Minimalism is currently topping the living-space philosophy chart. Arrange your home, so the buyers feel there’s room to breathe and that there is space for them to experiment with. Maybe the keyword we’re looking for here is depersonalization (of your home). You might want to put your hobby table in a storage unit.

Cleaning, also

You don’t want potential buyers being repelled by the sight of a dirty home. Cleaning the place won’t make you lose much time, and the results can be fascinating. You won’t waste money, either! Get the family together or invite a couple of friends to do a complete makeover. You don’t have to hire professional cleaning services. As you probably already know, folks love the smell of a sparkly clean home. Also, that way, they’ll know the house is just about ready to be settled by new owners.

Are there any repairs to be done?

If the answer to the question above is a YES, don’t waste time not dealing with the mentioned issue. The sale of your home is a good reason to do some renovations. You might want to finish the essential repairs first. Or, if you think you don’t have the time for all that work, make sure you’re upfront with all the issues your home might have when talking to potential buyers. That way, you won’t waste anyone’s time (including your own). Also, the buyers will appreciate your honesty.

Work on your online presentation

For your potential buyers to even think about checking out you’re in-person, you’ll need to create a superb online presentation. Superb may be too tough of a word, but anyway – try to do your best! Use your digital camera and photograph every detail/angle you think will guarantee you some popularity on the online real estate directories.

Hiring professional movers to help you move out?

If so, you’ve made a great decision. Do you know why? Because a DIY move is not a wise choice when you don’t have much time. If everything goes well and you’re able to sell your home very quickly, the next thing on the menu is to organize a safe transition to your new home. What does safe mean here? It means that, by hiring pros, none of your stuff will get bruised, neither will your old home get damaged while you move out.

What’s a price-reduction timeline?

Hopefully, you won’t need to put this piece of advice into action, but it’s better to mention it anyway. You’ll probably want to set a date after which you’ll (have to) lower the price you’ve put up on the market. It’s always good to be a little realistic, and the price reduction doesn’t need to be all that radical. It’s not easy to do this since you’re trying to sell your home fast for a good price. Still, it’s certainly better than waiting forever for the ideal buyer to knock on your door.

Tips for selling a house fast for the most money – a conclusion
