Real estate is one of the best investments a person can make. Assuming a fair price was paid originally, the value of most properties continually rise over time. As Mark Twain once said, “Buy land, they’re not making it anymore”. The only downside to this is that much of a person’s wealth is invested into their home and property, and it’s not an extremely liquid asset. This can be a problem when someone needs to sell a home quickly, since they often accept a lower-than-market price. Here’s how to sell your home fast without sacrificing on the price.
It takes more than 60 days on average for a home to be sold. When people need to sell their home quickly, they often cut the price, thinking the value will be enough to sell the property faster. Selling a home quickly doesn’t require slashing the price, but the price needs to be fair. Most buyers will not turn away from a good house at a fair price. In fact, dramatically cutting the price of home for sale can even be counterproductive. If a price seems too good to be true, many people will assume that it is. Worse still, if a buyer realizes that a seller is desperate to sell quickly, they can try to talk the price down even lower. One of the keys to selling a home fast without sacrificing the price is to make sure the price is set fairly.
From the very start, Foster Douglas takes extra steps to ensure our clients get the right price for their home. To start the selling process, we meet sellers at their home to review data that we’ve researched to help them set a price. This review will include information based on the property, neighborhood, comparable sales, and other necessary information needed to help the seller make an informed decision on the correct selling price.
To help sell a home quickly and at the best price, Foster Douglas offers advice on improvements that can be made to make the house more desirable and valuable to buyers. We also offer ideas about staging. You may like your home the way it’s set out, but we have experience showcasing thousands homes, so we know what buyers are looking for during a viewing.
Another reason to consider Foster Douglas is our FD Seller Solution, a VIP program that focuses on increasing the home value and selling it fast. There are two ways to take advantage of the program. We can help sellers by coaching them through the process they will need to set up appointments with buyers. And for sellers who are looking for a more hands-off approach, it’s possible to hire us to sell the home and we will do everything for you.
The FD Seller Solution relies on putting in more work at the start so your home spends less time on the market. We take the time to sit down with sellers to hear their goals and to devise the best strategy to accomplish them. We will then make several visits to walk through the house and get a thorough evaluation of where the home currently stands in value. Using the roadmap we create can ensure that everything needed to get the best price for a home has been accomplished.
Using the best marketing plan is another key to selling a home quickly at a good price. When you’re in a hurry to sell, you can’t wait for people to stumble on your online listing or “For Sale” sign. Foster Douglas offers professional real estate marketing through our team of creative and technology experts to help sellers showcase their home. Our web developer, graphic artist, videographer, drone pilot, and photographer work together to create an amazing online experience that helps show the best aspects of a property.
