Three easy steps for selling your house in less than a week!

Richard Weisser says it well.  There really are only three things a seller needs to do to sell a property quickly.  And yet, so many home sellers will ignore this advice and try to justify high asking prices and work that needs to be done.  When you sell a home, your property becomes a product on the market.  Stage and price it as a product, and it will sell.

Three easy steps for selling your house in less than a week!Do you want to sell your house? Would you like to have a contract for full list price or more in less than a week?

Here are three easy steps to ensure that your house is one of those “hot” properties that everyone wants:

1) Price it correctly. In real estate many factors determine price. Location, schools, amenities and features all figure into the calculation. Don’t try to “test the market” by starting high and work your way down. Price your home at market and you will do OK. Price it slightly below market and you will have buyers beating a path to your door.

2) Have the property in move-in ready condition! Buyers want to buy a house and NOT a project. Buyers want to visualize placing their furniture and do not want to think about the cost of replacing the roof.

3) Make your house available to be shown. No one will buy your house if they can’t see it. It doesn’t make any sense at all to offer a product that cannot be displayed. Every showing that is prohibited is one less chance to get top dollar for your house.

 To sum up, price, condition and availability are the three keys to selling a house quickly.

Do it right from the start and you will most likely have multiple offers in less than a week.
