How to Sell Your Home for More Money in Less Time

Sell for more

Your home is an investment – so why not profit from it when it’s time to sell? There are a few key ways to stack the odds in your favor so you can cash in and move out quickly. I’m going to give you the 3Ps to sell your home faster and for more money

1. Prepare Your Home to Sell

Home staging is key to selling your home for more money and in less time. I can’t stress this enough. We live in a time where people will sift through 40 photos of your house before they ever decide to walk through its doors. If professional staging isn’t an option, it’s easy to do it yourself! There are so many simple updates that you can do to prepare your home for sale. In addition to making sure that the home is neat and clean, you can swap out hardware, paint the front door, and throw pillows on the couches. Even updating your landscaping by adding flowers can increase your home’s market value up to 15%! A great real estate agent will be able to help guide you through this process and offer suggestions and examples of what works well.

2. Price Your Home to Sell

A home is only worth what the market is willing to bear. So pricing your home correctly is crucial.. A great real estate agent will look at comparable homes sold in your neighborhood and then analyze where the market is heading in the coming weeks to keep you competitive. Then, they will come up with a number for your house that’s priced to sell. 

3. Promote Your Home

Quickly selling a home is more than putting a sign in the yard. An excellent real estate agent doesn’t just post and pray – they have a rock-solid marketing plan. Part of that plan is adding your home to the MLS and making sure it syndicates to all home search sites so interested buyers can easily find it online. Their marketing plan should ensure that your home gets as much traffic as possible in the shortest amount of time possible, so don’t hesitate to ask your agent, “What’s the plan?” Because they should aim to get you multiple offers and the best price!
