How to sell your home as quickly as possible

Sellers come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common; they want the best possible price for their home, in the shortest possible time.

Fortunately, there are ways to ensure that a property not only sells quickly but that the seller also walks away satisfied that they have gotten a good deal.

• Get your house in order before putting it on the market. It’s surprising just how many sellers believe that buyers won’t notice defects and that even if they do, will still be willing to pay top dollar for the property.
• Source at least three valuations from local agents. Ask for a comparative marketing analysis to see what has recently sold in the area, and at what price.
• Take your chosen agent’s advice. Overpriced homes generally take longer to sell and when they finally do sell, it’s often for less than the price originally recommended by the agent.
• Don’t only rely on your agent to get the message out that you are selling. Send the listing to friends and family, and post it on your local WhatsApp and Facebook groups.
• Keep the house clean and tidy while it is on the market and make yourself as available to buyers as possible.
• Choose the best offer on your house. Don’t assume that the buyer offering the highest price is offering the best deal. Cash will always be king, even if the offer is lower than those that come with suspensive conditions such as the buyer selling his own property first.
