5 Ways To Sell Faster

When it comes to a hard and fast sale, there’s not always a quick workaround or an easy shortcut you can take. The market is the market, and there are many things at play that will dictate how quickly your property shifts, so it’s good to always bear in mind some reasonable expectations. It goes without saying that your choice of agent is the most important factor, and can really determine how much your property gets viewed, how successfully it's marketed and who walks through the doors. However there are some things you can do to help get things moving when you’re looking for a faster sale. Here are our top 5 tips to get a deal closed quickly.

1. Price to sell

The valuation of your property is critical, and understanding the market demand and comparative prices will help you set the right asking price. Too high and you risk losing out on potential buyers missing it in their search or taking a walk-through, which will ultimately slow down the entire process. Your agent should help guide you on this with some firm advice, to find the sweet spot that will give you the best value, create a sense of interest and urgency, and get as many people as possible into the sales funnel.

2. Spring clean

The more you can declutter, clean and depersonalise your home, the easier it will be to sell. Making it feel more fresh and spacious allows potential buyers to really get a sense of what’s on offer, and envision how they can make the space their own. Clear out as much as you can, hide away personal items, dust off your rubber gloves and get the property looking show-ready. The more pristine it is, the more appealing it becomes, and the faster you can get it off the market.

3. Fix it up

Showing a well maintained home that doesn’t need any obvious repairs will get your sale moving quicker. Take care of as many fixes as you can - think broken door handles, shabby skirting, quick and easy paint jobs, cupboard doors that need mending - these small things can make a big difference when showing your home. Fix and clean what you can so the buyer gets a look at it in the best possible condition - that way they can focus on all the good things the property has to offer.

4. Highlight the selling points

When it comes to marketing, viewings and sale preparations it’s important to know what your property’s best bits are. What are the highlights that will get people interested? Pinpoint them and emphasise them as much as you can. Be it south facing, great outdoor space or a large living area, know the main selling points and unique features so your buyers can understand them too. Place focus on these things and make sure they are well presented.

5. Be flexible

Remember potential buyers are now your customers, and treat them as such. Be as flexible as possible with your agent when it comes to viewing times to make sure you get as many people through the door as possible, and as quickly as possible. This will really help you speed up the process. Try and make your home available and show-ready outside of office hours and at times that are convenient for your potential buyers - the easier you can make it for them, the better.
