Tips on How to Sell Your Home Fast | Calgary, Alberta
Do you need to sell your house fast? In many markets around the country, including certain areas of Calgary, Airdrie, Cochrane, Okotoks, and Chestermere house prices have started to edge up. This could be a good time to sell your home. Easy tips for a quick home sale include:
If home prices in your neighborhood are increasing, do not raise your list price. Having a lower priced home will cause your home to get all of the attention and could ultimately drive up the final sales price of your home through a bidding war. Your ultimate goal is to get the highest possible sales price, not the highest list price. Ideally, you want your home priced at or below other homes in the neighborhood – higher priced homes in a given neighborhood are usually the cause of selling the lower priced homes in the same neighborhood. An interested buyer may first see the higher priced home but will quickly revert to the better priced home.
Remain flexible as buyers make offers to purchase your home. Allowing certain concessions can be integral to getting your home sold fast.
De-clutter the home by removing all personal items, extra furniture and the not used or wanted. Removing clutter can include these areas: closets, cupboards, linen closets, bathrooms and kid’s bedrooms. Once decluttered, make sure everything remains organized and clutter free until your home sells.
Landscape and clean up the yard. If the season permits, plant flowers to bring color to your yard. Keep the lawn mowed and edged and the yard free of household items, such as kids toys and anything else that detracts from the aesthetic appeal of the yard. If you mow the lawn while the home is on the market make sure to remove the grass clippings.
Make necessary repairs and renovations to make your house show well. For a list of such repairs please read Improvement to make to help sell your home in Calgary, Alberta
