Summer is well underway, and we’re feeling the heat here in North County San Diego! You might be, too, if you’ve been planning to sell your home this summer but haven’t gotten started yet. But don’t worry! While the summer real estate season is in full swing, you can still close on your home sale before the kids go back to school. By following these 5 tips, you can have the speedy summer home sale you’re hoping for.
Price your home competitively
The number one thing you can do to sell your home quickly is to price it right. While it’s a seller’s market out there, that doesn’t mean you can price your home high and have the offers come rolling in. If you want a speedy sale, then price your home competitively from the beginning. This will get the attention of buyers and could even cause a bidding war. Work with your agent to determine the best listing price to sell your home fast.
Invest in quick repairs and upgrades
We’ll be honest — you don’t have time for a full kitchen renovation if you want to sell your home by the end of this summer. But you do have time for quick repairs that will make your home look great to potential buyers. This includes patching holes, fixing leaky faucets, repairing door handles, and fixing broken or loose tiles. If you have some time left over after those repairs, then invest in quick upgrades. Apply a fresh coat of paint, update lighting fixtures, buy new appliances, or install new hardware in the kitchen and the bathroom.
Clean and stage
Making a good first impression is crucial if you want to sell your North County home fast. That means taking a couple of days to thoroughly clean and declutter your home. If you want to make the best impression possible, then consider packing up all your belongings and keeping them in storage. Then have a professional stager come in to make your home look amazing. They’ll have the tools and insight needed to draw attention to your home’s best features and make it as appealing to buyers as possible.
Do you want to make your home really stand out? Then sweeten the deal. You could offer to pay some of the buyer’s closing costs, for example. Or perhaps there is a particular piece of furniture that the buyer loves — offer to throw it in with the sale. It could be just the thing to tip the scales in your favor for a speedy closing.
Be flexible with appointments
Finally, if you want to sell as fast as possible, then you must be flexible with appointments. We understand it can be a hassle to deal with last-minute requests. But a little inconvenience could mean you’ll have an offer that much sooner. Be willing to accommodate potential buyers, and you’ll be rewarded with less time on the market before you get an offer.
