Tips to Sell Your Home Fast, in a Slower Market

A recent report indicates 77% of buyers won’t consider buying a home that isn’t move-in-ready. To capture the attention of potential buyers still in the market, consider these five quick updates:

  1. Power wash the exterior to boost curb appeal with an ROI of 135%.
  2. A fresh coat of interior paint has an average ROI of 159%.
  3. Update the landscaping for an ROI of 251%
  4. Refinishing hardwood floors gave an average ROI of 348%.
  5. Replacing carpets has an average ROI of 280%.

After your home is in perfect shape, remember these few things to keep it showing well:

  1. Declutter and Depersonalize: Clear out excess belongings and personal items. A clutter-free, neutral space allows buyers to envision themselves living in your home.
  2. Listen to Feedback: Pay attention to feedback from showings. If buyers consistently mention a specific item, consider fixing it to enhance your home’s appeal.
  3. Redo photos after making cosmetic upgrades and decluttering to make the listing more welcoming.

By following these steps and working closely with a skilled Realtor, you can increase your chances of selling your home quickly, even in a slower market.
