Savannah’s real estate market is not as fast-paced as in some other parts of the state. It is surprising especially considering the average house price in Savannah is much lower than the national average. But there are a few tips to sell your house fast. So, if you have decided to move elsewhere to want to purchase a better property by selling the one that you already own, this piece is for you.
1. Clear and Declutter
To sell a house faster, it needs to be appealing to the buyers. If you have been living in the house for quite some time, chances are it is stuffed with furnishing that makes the house look small and less spacious. You must rent a storage unit and store all of these furnishings there. Do not transport the basics like couches, beds, and dressers but change their positions in the house to make it look more spacious.
Furthermore, run a deep clean on every part of the house including kitchen cabinets, bathroom tiles, carpets, and baseboards. You can call professional help if you do not have enough time to do it all by yourself.
2. Handle Quick Repairs
Fix all the minor repairs in the houses including loose tiles, door handles, leaky faucets, and scratched paint patches. It would not cost much to fix these but without them, the house would look broken which will bring down its cost. If it is possible, paint the house again and install new hardware and accessories in the bathroom and kitchen cabinet. While you are at it, ensure that the paint matches the accessories in the house. It will make the space look more appealing and drive the cost of the house.
3. Hire a Real Estate Agent
Selling a house on your own will save the commissions of agents but it will take much more time. You should hire an agent as soon as possible to sell the house quickly. Real estate agents can also help in pricing the house at better rates. Furthermore, these agents already know potential buyers which can expedite things. You would have to deal with much less paperwork because agents will take care of most of it.
4. Hire a Professional Photographer
As discussed earlier, a house needs to look attractive for it to appeal to buyers. If you have done everything including quick repairs, hiring an agent, and getting rid of the extra furniture but have not hired a professional photographer, it will be all in vain. No matter how good you believe your photography skills are, leave it to professionals. They understand the angles and everything else that goes into making a place look attractive. It is especially important when you do not want to make space available for visitors.
Furthermore, while you are at it, do not forget that the description of the house should look appealing as well. You can hire a copywriter to write descriptions that go with the photographs and make the house look appealing to purchase.
