5 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster
Selling your home? This is a great time to sell your home. With high demand and low inventory, you are positioned in a great place to sell and make a nice profit off of your home. To ensure the most value out of your home, here are 5 tips to sell your home faster. The faster your home sells, the more profit you will make! Find out how below.
Declutter your home! Pack away all personal items and put them away in the garage or in a storage unit like pictures, awards, and sentimental belongings. Make them feel like they belong in this house! Remember, less is more. The more items you clear off of table tops, shelves and mantels, the easier it is for the buyer to envision living in the space.

Since you took the time to declutter, keep it organized! Before the buyers show up - pick up toys, straighten pillows, make the bed, and put away clean dishes. It is also a good idea to put out some cookies fresh from the oven or a scented candle. Buyers will remember the smell of your home! According to reports, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms to stage in order to attract more buyers. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home!
3. Price it Right
If your home is priced right, this will ensure your home will sell faster than starting at a higher price point to "see what happens". The problem with starting higher or having a higher number in mind is how long the home will sit on the market. The longer it sits, the more potential buyers will wonder why the home isn't selling!
More inventory coming into the market guarantees there will be some competition. You want to make sure your home is noticed. The key to selling your house in 2019 is ensuring it is Priced to Sell Immediately (PTSI). That way, your home will be seen by the greatest amount of buyers and will sell at a great price before more competition comes to market!
4. Full Access
One of the top way to sell your home faster is home access! If your home is available anytime, that opens up more opportunity to find a buyer right away. Some buyers, especially those relocating, don’t have much time available. If they cannot get into the house, they will move on to the next one. Put away, store or lock up any personal belongings that you do not want potential buyers to see. This way, they will have full access to view the inside of closets, drawers and other storage areas to get the best idea of storing their own belongings.

5. Open Schedule
This one goes hand in hand with allowing buyers to have full access to your home. The more you open up your schedule to allow for viewings, the more traffic you will potentially have through your home. The more buyers that are able to view your home at all different times of the day, the better your chances are of selling before having to begin to reduce the price of your home. Great homes that are priced right with the right access and schedule will almost always sell quickly!
