Real estate markets in Salt Lake City and everywhere fluctuate — sometimes the markets are really hot like they are as of this writing, and there are so many buyers that sellers will list a property and it gets snapped up the same week if it is in good livable condition and priced right. Sometimes markets are kind of soft, which means a house might be for sale for weeks or even months without getting any offers! Even in a very hot market, there can be several reasons people want to sell their house fast.
Homeowners who are selling their homes in the second kind of market are often surprised and dismayed to discover just how long it can take. Even in a hot market it usually takes 6 weeks to 3 months to get a house sold and money in your hand.
That duration can be disruptive to your life, especially if you have to wait on the sale of your own home in order to buy another home or move to a different city or maybe foreclosure is looming. Maybe you inherited a house or have a vacant property to deal with or your house needs a ton of repairs.
Whether you’re choosing to sell your house yourself, or you’re using the services of a real estate agent, or thinking of using a house buying company, here are some tips to help you sell your house as quickly as possible.
Here’s how to sell your home fast in
Salt Lake City Utah!
Selling your home is a SALE. And in every sale, you need to start by capturing the attention of potential buyers. This means making your home stand out, or doing something that makes someone stop and look. Sometimes it’s a red-colored door in a neighborhood of bland doors. Maybe it’s a weird price that makes people look twice. Usually it is putting the house on the MLS for a lower than market value to get buyer’s attention right away. However, most likely any buyers you find will need to go through the loan process, and this is after a bunch of people have walked through your house.
Differentiate from the neighbors
To draw in a potential customer, you should try to make your home memorable. Consider putting colorful designs such as flowers, new windows, landscaping and even a new roof. These things will improve the look of your house and raise it’s value. Curb appeal is always VERY important.
Remove the clutter
It is important to eliminate all the clutter from the house before showing it off. This is because people need to picture themselves in that space. Therefore, you might want to get rid of some furniture to create a larger space, and also removing all your family photos and other personal belongings. I know that sounds kind of harsh, but buyers want to feel like the house can be ‘theirs”.
You can hire an expert to clean the clutter on your behalf. A clean nice smelling house is a must to get a quick offer.
Sweeten the deal
You want to sell your home faster in Salt Lake City Utah? Then learn how to sweeten the deal. You can offer unique terms that will sweeten the pot. For example, paying the closing costs for your buyer. This will attract more attention from those who are hunting for the best house deals in Salt Lake City. Even in the current hot real estate market (as of September 2017), buyers on most FHA Loans will need the seller to pay their closing costs amounting to about 3% of the sales price.
Market your house everywhere
As you promote your house, be sure to market it everywhere you can. Use social media like Face Book, websites like KSL.com, blogs, video, and anything else you can think of to get the word out about your house. Even if your real estate agent is marketing the property, you should do your own marketing to promote the property too. Placing directional street signs on busy streets leading to your house is also a great way to draw people to your house for sale.
