“Help! I’m Trying To Figure Out How To Sell My House Fast In the North East“
5 Tips For Home Sellers
If you own a house in the North East and want to sell it quickly, read this blog for 5 tips that will help you sell your house sooner!
Tip #1 – Skip The Fix-Up
One of the most time-consuming reasons that homes don’t get sold as quickly as the seller wants to sell is because of the renovations, repairs, and clean-up that needs to happen before the home can go on the market. Estate agents understand what their buyers are looking for, so they usually urge sellers to make renovations. Unfortunately, the larger the renovation, the longer the sale is delayed. Plus, these renovations are serious work, please be sure you’re confident undertaking these kinds of works before taking them on! Sadly, we have come across some real horror stories when we are approached by people and families who tried to refurbish their house themselves… People can forget how much time, money, effort and stress go into managing these projects, please do not underestimate them!
Tip #2 – Forget Residential
When a home is sold “on the market” (usually listed by an agent), the prospective buyers are usually called “residential buyers,” meaning that the buyers are looking to buy a home that they want to live in. Unfortunately, retail buyers are notoriously unpredictable and they buy on their own timeline, which may not be your timeline! A better option is to think about selling to a professional home-buying company.
Tip #3 – Gather Your Data
One surprisingly time-consuming piece of the sales process is when the buyer requires information that the seller needs to find. This might include information such as when the boiler was installed or when the roof was last replaced, etc. Homeowners who anticipate these questions and have the answers at their fingertips can usually accelerate the buyer’s timeline and potentially sell their homes faster. However, in our experience most people have no idea as to when their property was last rewired, for example…
Tip #4 – Bypass The Agent
An agent is motivated to sell your house and try to get the best price for it. While that is important, it means that they may not always have your preferred timeline in mind – since an agent may choose to delay if they think they can get a higher price. Bypassing an agent and selling directly to a buyer, such as a buyer like us at North East House Buyers will help you to sell your house faster. (We are home buyers and we have cash on hand to buy your house right now)
Tip #5 – Get Ready To Decide
It is our experience that homeowners who think they are ready to sell are not always truly ready. They WANT to sell but when it comes time to make a decision, they have difficulty moving forward. If you are really interested in selling fast, and you get in touch with a company like us, get ready because we can move very quickly and can even complete in, and put the cash in your bank, in about a week!
