Tips for a swift home sale

Redfin reported New Jersey home sales prices were up 5.9% in June 2023 compared to June 2022. The booming market is great for sellers.

But it does not mean you can slack on your part of the process. Whether you are moving to a new location, facing financial constraints or simply eager to move on, selling your home quickly is a common goal.

Set the right price

One of the most critical factors in selling your home quickly is pricing it competitively. Research the local real estate market to determine a fair and attractive price. Avoid overpricing, as it can deter potential buyers,even in a seller’s market.

Enhance curb appeal

Improve your home’s curb appeal by tidying up the exterior, planting flowers and ensuring the front entrance is inviting. A well-maintained exterior can attract more potential buyers.

Declutter and depersonalize

Buyers should be able to envision themselves in your home. Remove personal items and declutter spaces to create a neutral and welcoming atmosphere.

Complete minor repairs

Address any minor repairs or maintenance issues. Leaky faucets, chipped paint or broken fixtures can give the impression that you have not maintained the home. Fixing these problems can make your home more appealing.

Stage your home

Home staging involves arranging furniture and decor to showcase your home’s potential. Staged homes often sell faster.

Be flexible with showings

Make your home available for showings at various times, including weekends and evenings, to accommodate potential buyers’ schedules. The more accessible your home is, the faster it may sell.

Respond promptly

Timely responses to inquiries and offers are important. Be ready to answer questions and negotiate when needed. Delayed responses can deter potential buyers.

Selling your home quickly requires careful planning, preparation and a proactive approach. You cannot just rely on a good market to sell your home. Putting effort into the process will boost your chances for a fast sale.
