4 Ways To Sell Your Home Fast

How Can You Sell Your Home Fast?


1. Make buyers feel at home
Declutter your home! Pack away all personal items like pictures, awards, and sentimental belongings. Make them feel like they belong in this house! According to the Profile of Home Staging by the National Association of Realtors, “83% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home.” Not only will your house spend less time on the market, but the same report mentioned that,
“One-quarter of buyers’ agents said that staging a home increased the dollar value offered between 1 – 5%, compared to other similar homes on the market that were not staged.”


2. Keep it organized
Since you took the time to declutter, keep it organized! Before the buyers show up, pick up toys, make the bed, and put away clean dishes. It is also a good idea to put out some cookies fresh from the oven or a scented candle. Buyers will remember th ...

Catch them at the Curb! Preparing to sell your home....

What do you do when you are preparing your home for sale????

There are so many things to think about as you prepare to sell your home.  Here in Spokane we continue to see a strong seller's market.  So, even as we head into the fall and winter months, I strongly advise that you do take a look at your curb appeal, and make a potential buyer say "Stop the car!!"

Here at Haven Real Estate group one thing we take pride in is our ability to successfully prepare you for selling your home and successfully market your home to the most potential buyers!  Do I have your attention????

While you’re preparing to sell your home, curb appeal should be a top priority. When someone is walking by or coming to your open house, the outside of your home is the first thing they will see. If there is no curb appeal, potential buyers may not have that "WOW" factor initially, and worst case, may never even set foot in your home. Eeek...the worst.....

So, be sure you are not igno ...

10 Tips to wow potential home buyers

1.      First impressions are paramount if you want to sell your home. You want to get the potential buyer in the door. You don’t want to them to drive up to the curb and then just drive off because the first impression was not the best.
So, what should a seller do? Make sure your curb appeal is great. Clean the walkway and the                              porch. Put a potted plant by the front door. Make sure the front door is clean, freshly paint it if needed, maybe a pop of color. If there is room for a chair or two and a little table add them. Make the home look inviting. Make sure that your yard is manicured, pathways are clear and everything is looking spiffy.


2.     The entry way is the first thing the potential buyer will encounter as they enter. Make sure it is free from clutter an ...

What can I do if my house isn’t selling?

Our Spokane real estate market is a strong seller’s market currently. If you’re home isn’t selling there got to be a reason. What could the reasons be?
Price:
If your home is overpriced, then it will sit on the market. You will end up lowering the price time and time again until you lower it to the true market value. The problem with these homes is that you either had a poor evaluation of the home and the realtor told you it would sell for this exorbitant price to get the listing or the listing agent wasn’t upfront with you on what the home was actually worth after you said you thought it was worth much more. It is so important to price your home the 1st time at the true market value or slightly below if your looking for multiple offers. Multiple offers will drive up the price therefore netting you more.
Condition of the home:
There could be something about your that is turning away buyers such as is there an odor? It’s hard to tell if our home smells ...

Listing Your Home

Perhaps you have expanded beyond your current living space, or you would like to move into a different-better neighborhood. Maybe you want to move closer to your work…whatever the reason, there are a few things to do before the “For Sale” sign goes live:


Determine Affordability


To begin with, you need to look at the principal balance on your current home. You must also figure in all costs associated with selling your home such as; repairs, your closing costs which can be average 8-10% of the sale price of your home and the expense of the move itself. 


Reviewing  Market Conditions


Evaluate your local market conditions. You are assessing the market to include the current inventory of homes for sale, the recent successful transactions, and housing prices in general. Are homes moving fast in your area? Are you prepared to move quickly should the opportunity present itself to do so? The most helpful tool in this step is to work with an Expe ...
