Sometimes you just need to sell your home quickly, and you don’t have time to waste.
Obviously, in an ideal world we would have plenty of time to prepare a property for sale, but that isn’t always the case. If you are in this position, there are a few things you can do to speed up the process, reduce stress and save time.
Get outside help
Thanks to the internet, you can put together a team to help you from the comfort of your own living room. Here at Boutique Property Agents, we can appraise your home with a private visit or a virtual walk-through, backed up with some questions. A professional appraisal will give you an idea of your price expectations.
We can also put you in touch with other real estate professionals, including mortgage brokers and auctioneers. So if you are looking for a fast sale, do get in touch.
Other people to talk to include your bank, your accountant and your financial advisor, if you have one, to discuss your options.
In the current market you will probably need to be flexible on price if you are hoping for a very fast sale. Having said that, we will do everything we can to get you a price you are happy with.
Start getting your home ready
As we discussed in our previous blog on selling online, now is a great time to get your home ready for sale. But you’ll need to move quickly, so don’t embark on extensive renovations.
Focus on getting the most impact for the least amount of time and money. A fresh coat of paint is always worth the effort, as is making sure everything is spotlessly clean. Put extra clutter into storage or even in the boot of your car to make the space look larger, and hide all personal items such as photos and toiletries from view. Some fresh flowers and plants, crisp linen and towels, and a few nice paintings and accessories and you’re good to go.
Set your price to sell your home quickly
If you want a very fast sale you may need to compromise a little on price. However, you can also attract more interest and competition with a fast sale, which can work in your favour.
It’s important to talk openly with your agent about your situation so they will know what offers to present to you. Whatever may be happening in the world, there are always motivated buyers in Sydney, and ones who will put in a good offer early so as not to miss out.
Get us to call up our contacts
At Boutique Property Agents, we have a database of potential buyers on our database who we can reach out to early on to let them know what’s coming up. This can result in a great offer before the property even hits the market, and saves you the time and effort of a big marketing campaign, home inspections (which are difficult right now) and an auction.
We can call everyone we know who is currently searching, then schedule private or virtual viewings and start taking offers.
Don’t rule out early offers
It’s often the case that the first couple of offers you receive are the best ones you will get. This is great news for sellers looking to move quickly, particularly in the current market. When these early offers come in, it’s always worth thinking carefully about them, talking to your agent and weighing up your options. We can also show you the latest data-based evidence about house prices in your area so you can decide whether to accept or not.
If you are looking to sell your home quickly in inner Sydney and want to talk through your options in the current market, please give us a call today. We are still here, still working, and happy to have a no-obligation chat.
