Like many people at some point in their lives, I have needed to sell my house. This is a very stressful experience and it can definitely be overwhelming, especially if it is your first time doing it. In my case, I sell house fast houston and that made the process much harder and more complex, adding extra stress to it. Luckily, I was able to find ways to smooth this process, especially through specific agencies. These 3 actions are the main steps I followed to sell my house fast:
- Upgrade the house
Clean, declutter, fix, paint, decorate: you will need to make your house look pretty if you want to attract more buyers. Do not erase your house’s personality, but make sure it is not crowded and full of objects that fill it up more than it needs to be. Add mirrors to give the impression of more space, paint your walls light colours to add brightness and spaciousness to the rooms. Fix anything that needs to be fixed and add decorations to rooms and spaces that are flawed, in order to minimise the impact of their imperfections on potential buyers. Be clever and strategic, and most importantly, don’t forget to detach yourself from the house. When I sold my house this was crucial, as it allowed me to look at it objectively, rather than from an emotional point of view.
- Don’t go for the highest valuation
This is something that most sellers do not know, and I used to be one of them. When asking for valuations of your house to agents, be very cautious. Always put trustworthiness of the agents before their offers. I had a few very suspicious offers that were too good to be true when looking through agents. You should be careful when it comes to this kind of offers, as the market changes and if your property does not get sold in a short time, it will cost you a lot of money. For this reason, always prioritise agents with experience rather than ones offering too much money.
- Choose the right period of the year to sell your house
The housing market is very complex, but it was fundamental to know its basics when I sold my house. The most important thing to know about it as a seller is that not all periods of the year are the same in the market. With the exception of professional buyers, there are times of the year when selling a can be much more fruitful. Spring is definitely the best season to sell a house: with the good weather that will make your property look appealing to potential buyers and people looking for a place to move into after the summer, your will be much more likely to be sold during this time.
