When you sell your property, your motivation for doing so will greatly affect the final sale price. Hence, even if your motivation is to sell your property as fast as possible, you still might want to find yourself motivated by profit for your own benefit as well. If you want to sell your home at the best possible price, there are a few things you must do.
First things first and get to work on the outside of your property. The outside of your property is what will give potential buyers the first impressions. Hence, you must make sure that you have clean your yard and that your trees are pruned. Look at your property through the eyes of a stranger and see whether or not it has any curb appeal. Generally speaking, this is all down to keeping the outside tidy rather than having to do any major work.
Your motivation is yours and yours alone, so don’t go around telling potential buyers. When you tell people what motivates your sale, they are able to use this to their advantage, not yours, particularly if they are working with a good real estate agent. If people really want to know why you are selling, try to be obtuse about it. Tell them, for instance, that your needs have changed. This is just vague enough to be the perfect answer. It has been shown psychologically that people will interpret these answers in a positive light that works for them. For example, it is possible that the buyers will believe you came into money and are looking at something bigger. Or they may think your kids have left the home and you are looking to downsize. Either way, people will always believe that you have a genuine reason for a sale that is not financially motivated.
Lastly, you have to get all your cleaning gear out. Make sure every surface has been cleaned properly. The elbow grease is going to have to come out, and it is also a great opportunity to start to get rid of the clutter in preparation for your own move. You need to transform your home into a show home. As such, make sure you also focus on the exterior of your property. You have to make sure that your yard is clean and tidy, that your lawn is mowed and free from weeds and that your trees and bushes are pruned properly. The exterior of your property creates a first impression. And don’t forget that you only get one chance to make that first impression. All being well, the above tips will help you to make a sale quickly and for a great price.
