8 Tips for Selling Your Home Fast

There are certain times in life when you need to sell your home quickly. Whether it’s because of a job change, divorce, major life event, or financial distress, sometimes you don’t have time to wait for market conditions to improve or to be patient while your house sits on the market.

In these situations, you have to be proactive to make sure your home sells quickly, regardless of market conditions. With that in mind, here are 8 tips to help Birmingham homeowners sell their homes quickly.

1.   Deep Clean, Declutter, and Depersonalize

It’s important that your home makes a good first impression in listing photos, videos, and showings. To do this, it’s important to deep clean all areas of your home. This includes cleaning and waxing floors to ensure that everything looks bright and fresh in listing photos.

To make your home look comfortable and inviting for potential buyers, you’ll also want to declutter and get rid of personal pictures and items. While this step might take some work, it’s a relatively quick and an affordable way to help your home sell faster.

2.   Have Professional Listing Photos Taken

Once your home is sparkling and ready for buyers, it’s worth the investment to have professional photos taken. The listing pictures have a major impact on the number of showings that you’ll get and whether buyers will even look further at your listing.

Because of this, you want to have a professional take the photos to ensure that you present your house in the best light possible (pun intended)!

3.   Do a 3D Tour

Another way to help sell your property online is by doing a 3D tour of your home. In the last couple of years, this has become increasingly popular, and it’s a way to attract buyers that can’t view the home.

You’d be surprised at the number of deals that are done where the buyer never actually walks through the home, and to attract this type of buyer, it’s helpful to do a 3D Tour. While some photographers will do 3D tours, many experienced agents are also becoming skilled at doing this. If you work with an agent, they should be able to help you with this process.

4.   Freshen Up the Exterior

Once your listing has attracted buyers and you get showings, you need to make sure that your home’s curb appeal makes a good first impression. While you might not have the time or money to paint the exterior or do major landscaping, there are some quick and easy things you can do to freshen up the exterior of your home.

Cleaning the windows, replacing the house numbers, painting the front door, and installing a new mailbox are all simple projects that can improve your curb appeal. In addition, make sure that your yard is clean of debris and all walkways are clear and safe.

5.   Repaint in Neutral Colors

If you have spaces in your home that have bright or unusual colors, it’s worth taking a weekend and repainting those spaces in neutral colors. This project is a little more time consuming than others on the list, but it can be worth it to make your home more attractive to buyers. You don’t have to repaint everything – just tackle bright spaces and repaint them in a neutral color, for example, gray, white or beige.

6.   Make Quick Repairs

If you’re in a rush to sell your home, you probably don’t want to make major repairs or upgrades. Even so, it’s important to make as many small and quick repairs as you can. For example, fix loose hinges on doors, repair loose or broken tiles, and fix leaking faucets.

Additionally, if there are repairs that you know you’ll need to address during inspections, come up with a plan for dealing with those – whether that means fixing them before listing or being prepared to offer buyers a credit to deal with those repairs.

7.   Price Your Home to Sell

One of the most important things to consider when you’re listing your home is making sure that it’s priced correctly. This is important regardless of your timeline for selling your home. That said, if you need to sell your home quickly, it’s a good idea to price it aggressively. This is particularly important during slower markets.

Pricing can be difficult. It’s usually worth it to work with a real estate agent that knows the Birmingham market and is familiar with your neighborhood and area. Experienced agents can help you find the right price to ensure that your home sells quickly.

8.   Offer Buyer Incentives

Finally, buyer incentives can be a great way to make your listing stand out and to make sure that your home sells fast. Incentives are especially helpful in the current market, where buyers are concerned about rising interest rates and the increased cost of homeownership.

Get creative and find incentives that will attract buyers to your listing – for example, offering to cover closing costs, giving a credit for necessary repairs or upgrades, or offering a home warranty.

Looking for an Easier Way to Sell Your Birmingham Home Fast?

If you need to sell your Birmingham house quickly and don’t want to spend any time preparing it for the market, it’s worth looking at alternative ways to sell your property. Cash buyers can be a great option for homeowners that are looking for a quick way to get their home sold.

Cash buyers buy homes as-is, regardless of the condition. Plus, they can close quickly and cover all closing costs. When you work with a cash buyer, you can close in less than two weeks and simply walk away from your home with cash in hand.
