Selling Your House in Palm Beach County is one of the more important and biggest transaction a homeowners makes. It is not an easy task and if you want to sell you Palm Beach County house faster, then read this post for some very helpful tips.
Over the year here at Home Solutions FLA we have learned a few things that can help increase a homeowner’s chance of selling the house. So before you start marketing your house and showing it to potential buyers, here are a few things that you can do to sell your house faster and for a better price.
De-Clutter and De-Personalize
A potential buyers needs to be able to picture himself in the house to invest in it. So make the space less personal by removing family pictures and other memorabilia such as your kids’ drawings of the fridge. With the space empty of other people’s past memories, the potential will be there for a buyer to imagine his own future in the place.
Price it Right
You might have already decided the value of your house, but the actual market value might be different. What you want for you house and what someone in the current market will pay for it may be two different things.
People now have more options than before and they do their research at home, online, and through agents when they are looking for homes. The popularity of websites like Zillow (which sometimes values houses lower what the buyers might actually pay) prove the theory that 90% of home buyers start their research online. So set your price after checking online sources. If your price is higher, you should have a reason to convince the buyers to pay more than what the internet suggests.

Make the Property More Appealing
In many cases, once your house has been listed and you have marketed it properly, it will attract potential buyers right away. As a matter of fact, studies have shown that over 70% of all potential buyers will show interest in the 3-6 months after it has been listed. So you should get your potential buyer within the first 3-6 months. However, if your house is not getting as much attention as you need in those first few months, then you need to make some changes to make your house look more attractive. Here are a few things that you can do to make your house look better to potential buyers:
- Make small changes in your yard to increase its appeal, like ensuring the shrubs and grass are neatly trimmed. You can even go the extra mile and replace the existing flowers with new and fresh ones.
- Do repairs or repaint your house if it’s looking battered and bruised.
- If you have great furniture consider including some of the furniture in the sale to entice the buyer.
The thing about most “retail” buyers out there is that a majority of them have a hard time looking past the ugly parts of a house. Yes, they can remodel, repaint and make some changes but the first impression is the lasting impression and some buyers just can’t get past that initial ugly visual.
