For most of the working class, the biggest asset they own in their life is their home. And when times get good for us, the next asset to invest in is usually a bigger home! For most of us, the sale of our current property is the number one factor in the purchase of a new one.
A lot is riding on it, and if your house is not going for a good price, then there may have to be a change of plans. This is why properly marketing your home is crucial!
It’s not just the price but the timing too. If your old house doesn’t sell within the decided time frame, you may not be able to make the payment on a new house, and someone will beat you to it. So before you start a down payment on a new place, you need to settle payments and other things at your old place.
In comparison, buying is much easier than selling. When you buy, you have in mind what you want, but when you sell, you need to dig deep to find that sales pitch, which not everyone is good at. This is where realtors come in. They have professional sales experience which will sell your home faster!
Here are a few tips on marketing your home that will better your chances of a quick sale:
1. Beautify What You Are Selling.

A thorough cleaning and a well-maintained house will always sell faster. A fresh coat of paint or any other small renovation which brings your home in simply ‘move-in’ condition will guarantee a quick sale.
2. Photograph Your Home.
If you aren’t that familiar with a camera, then let a professional do it. Get some good shots and market your home online for a quicker sale. Most real estate agencies do the job themselves.
3. Find The Right Real Estate Agent.
There are tons of real estate agencies, but not every agency can get your work done for you. Yes, it is a tad bit pricey than just doing it yourself, but there is a good chance that they will get you your price for a small commission.

4. Set A Reasonable Price.
This is a no-brainer. You can get a real estate evaluation done and then set your price, and a realtor will give you an idea of what your property can fetch you.
5. Get To Know The Real Estate Market Conditions At The Present Time.
Where the housing market stands plays a huge role in making a sale. Perhaps there may be a better time for marketing your home. This is why a professionals’ opinion will be valuable.
One thing that you need to do before you hire a realtor is this: research your real estate agent thoroughly. In a world of social media, it is not hard to dig around for feedback and reviews. Make sure the agency you hire has a good percentage of successful sales, happy clients, and the competency to market your home well.
Another benefit of hiring a realtor is to delegate the tedious task of handling all the paperwork. So if you don’t have the time, you can just hire a realtor who will manage all of that for an all-inclusive fee while you enjoy packing up, saying goodbye to your old home and move into your new one.
