Need to sell your house fast and don’t know where to start? Is it worth the time and effort to list your house in the local newspaper? Probably not. So where is the best place to list your property for sale to have the best chance of being seen by as many buyers as possible? The answer is really pretty easy – the internet. Keep reading to learn more about advertising your house on the internet to sell it fast.

Using The Internet To Sell Your House Fast

In a previous article “Improving Curb Appeal To Help Sell Your House Fastwe covered making your house look as nice as possible for when buyers arrive at your property. But how do you get those people to your house? With the invention of the internet now people from all of the county, or the world for that matter,  can have a peak at your house without even leaving theirs.

Just putting a sign in the front yard and hoping that a buyer will come by just isn’t going to happen. In today’s fast paced digital world with tons of social media sites and online listing sites, your property has to be on as many of them as possible. This is where most people start the home buying process these days, and some suggest over 90% of would be buyers start their search there. Just think about it, where would you start your search, probably on your laptop, tablet or right on your phone. The internet just makes it easier for people to look at a lot of houses until their hearts content and find a few that they like and want to visit.

Even WikiHow makes this statement about making use of the internet:

Use the power of the internet. The internet changed the way that houses were bought and sold. No longer did prospective home buyers need to physically visit the house to find out what it was like. Today, many potential home buyers weed out listings they don’t want to invest time in online, and then visit the ones in person that look intriguing. Promoting your home’s unique qualities online is a great way to generate more leads.

Use As Many Channels As Possible

You should know that there are sites out there like Trulia, Zillow and Redfin that you can list your house for sale and many more. But where else can you list your house for sale?  Check this out:

Craigslist is one of the best websites for marketing property. You must therefore make a point of listing your home for sale on craigslist.org. When doing this, you have to specify you are the owner and the location of your home to increase your chances of attracting buyers. It is also important to renew your ad daily to ensure your listing is visible. Make sure your add stands out above the rest of the listings by adding plenty of high quality pictures and ideally a YouTube video tour in HD.

Facebook is another great resource you can use to sell your house fast. Look for active facebook groups in your area and write a post with pictures and videos of your house. It is important to note that real estate investors are more resourceful than real estate agents because they usually have cash on hand. Use Facebook’s graph search to find individual real estate investors in your area.

Craiglist is often overlooked by a lot of sellers and so is Facebook. Go ahead and make a post on Facebook that your house is for sale with some good pictures in it, you never know who is in your circle of friends that may be looking for a house in your area. In the above article they also mention real estate investors which brings us to our last part of this article –

Perform A Web Buy Houses Search

If you really need to sell your home quickly, one of the easiest things to do is to perform a search on your favorite browser with something like “sell my house fast” or “we buy houses” with your city at the end and you will have a lot of results returned that are real estate investors that are looking to buy houses. For some people this is the best route because their property needs repairs or really do need to sell quickly because of a new job in another city.

Summing It Up

If you need to sell your house fast you absolutely have to make use of the internet. Just putting a sign in the front yard or at the front of the subdivision isn’t going to bring in that many potential buyers. Get lots of good pictures of your property and post them on as many sites as you can that your house if for sale.

What You Should Do To Sell Your House Fast

Selling a house fast can be challenging, and nerve racking. If you have a larger home with children knowing where to start can make you want to pull your hair out. Do you start cleaning, contact an agent or start marketing if selling FSBO or maybe even packing? It’s best to step back and take a deep breath, then start making a list of things that need to be done. In this article we will give you some good tips on getting your property sold as quickly as possible.

What You Need To Do To Sell Your Home Quickly

In our previous post “Should I Sell My House As Is” we talked about selling your house “as is” without making repairs or even cleaning up the property. This will most certainly affect how much you are able to get for the property if you don’t make repairs. However in this article we are going to assume that you have money to make repairs and get your property in tip top shape to get it sold.

Time is of the essence here, so the first thing you need to do is start cleaning. Get your house as clean or cleaner than the day you moved in. Next you need to be concerned about staging, which this article from Cameron Huddelston has some good thing to say:

Stage the house. Staging involves deeply cleaning, decluttering, depersonalizing and arranging furnishings to make your house as appealing as possible. According to a survey by the International Association of Home Staging Professionals and StagedHomes.com, 95% of staged homes sell in 23 days or less, on average. So we painted the walls in a stairway that were scuffed and the ceiling of our kitchen and sunroom because they had some stains. I packed up most of my family photos that were on shelves, tables and walls. We already had a storage unit, so we were able to clean out closets and put items we weren’t regularly using into it. And we turned a kid’s craft room (which was cluttered with art supplies, toys and a homemade craft table covered in paint and glitter glue) into a sitting room. My goal was to make my home look like it was ready for a photo shoot for a magazine or catalog.

The first 3 things they touch on, deep cleaning, decluttering and depersonalizing are a must. All of this will help when you show your property and as well help the potential buyer to see the property as their own. We are also believe that packing a lot of items and moving them to storage is a good idea.

Painting & More

Painting can take some time to do correctly and a poor job will stand out to buyers. Make sure to set aside enough time to properly do the job.

What colors should you use? Fox News has this to say about colors and more:

9. Choose sophisticated neutral colors. Now is not the time to experiment with that “fun”-looking lime green. But that doesn’t mean you need to go all white, either. Rich midtone neutrals like mocha and “greige” create a sophisticated backdrop that makes everything look more pulled together.

10. Create a gender-neutral master bedroom. Appeal to everyone with a clean, tailored master bedroom, free of personal items and clutter. You can’t go wrong with clean, crisp linens, tasteful artwork and a blanket folded at the foot of the bed.

11. Open those closets! Open-house visitors will peek inside your closets. Closet space can be a make-it-or-break-it selling point for buyers, so show yours off to their full advantage by giving excess stuff the heave-ho. Again, this is really important, so even if you need to store a few boxes elsewhere, it’s worth it. Aim to have 20 to 30 percent open space in each closet to give the impression of spaciousness.

Not quite sure about “greige” as if it’s suppose to be a mix between gray and beige. However those are both colors that we use in our properties with gray used more in new homes as of late.

It’s also good advice to clean your closets. Buyers will look in your closets to see how much room there is. Besure to pack up as much as you can to give your closet a more spacious feel.

Detach Yourself From The Property

This can be hard to do. A lot of people have a problem with this, after all, you may have raised a family in this property and have a lot of memories there. However you need to sell the house, so you need to think of it as someone else’s and a more neutral color pallet and furniture for staging. Forbes has this to say about this important step:

5. Don’t … get emotionally involved.

Yes, it’s your house. Yes, you sweated blood and tears to get it just the way you wanted it. But, no, that does not make it someone else’s “perfect,” particularly when you’ve made some unique decorating decisions. You want the space to look as neutral as possible, so buyers can envision themselves in the space. So even if those teal walls in the bedroom look knock-out great with your duvet, they probably won’t match anyone else’s things. Let go of the features you love, and make it a house most people could love—and that might mean painting all of the walls a soft, neutral color. “My office at home is a robin’s egg blue,” Derrick says. “But if we get ready to sell that house, you can bet I’m repainting it.”

It’s just like what Fox News had to say – neutral colors are what you need to aim for, both in the color of your walls as well as the furniture that you stage the house with.

Conclusion

Having to sell your house fast can be a real hassle. However, if you choose the right colors and properly paint the interior of your house and use neutral colors for staging furniture the property will be more inviting for a larger base of potential buyers. It may take you longer if you have painted every room in the house a different color, like pink for your daughters room. The pink may look nice, but what if the perfect family for the house has all boys? Just stick to the advice above and you should have a buyer for your property faster, all though it may take you some time to get all the work done.

If you really need to sell your house fast and don’t have time for everything mentioned above, don’t forget, here at Mandich Property Group we buy houses as is and in any condition. We don’t care what the colors are of any of the rooms or if the house is staged or even clean. You can learn more at MandichPropertyGroup.com

Tips On How To Sell Your House Fast

Having to sell your house and move can be a real headache. Add in having to sell your house fast – that can add even more stress. Unfortunately people do find themselves in situations where they need to sell their home quickly, usually because they have a new job in a different area. If you are one of these people and are looking for some tips to help you sell your house quickly, keep reading 🙂

How To Sell Your House Fast

The first thing you need to be concerned with is how the house shows. Is it clean? Is everything put away in it’s place so that the house doesn’t look cluttered? We covered some of this in a previous post “How To Sell My Home Fast By Owner” about making sure your house is clean and de-cluttered, so check that out.

But what your really need to pay attention first is this – how does the house look when you first drive up to it?

Besides making sure your house is clean, how your house looks from the outside is extremely important. You only get one chance to make a first impression. We have heard that people make up their mind if they like a house or not within the first minute of looking at it when arriving.

Laura Adams wrote an excellent article concerning “curb appeal” and much more in an article on Quick And Dirty Tips:

Selling Tip #1: Improve Your Curb Appeal

Nothing is more important than a first impression. So consider what a potential home buyer may think as he or she drives up to your property for the very first time.

Walk out into your street and look–and I mean really look–at your home to see its shortcomings. Is it attractive, clean, and well-kept, or does it need maintenance that you’ve been putting off?

After you’ve been in a home for a while, it can be difficult to see it objectively. So take suggestions from a real estate professional, friends, or prospective buyers about how to make it show better.

When your home is on the market, it’s critical that your landscaping is well-groomed and your lawn is mowed 24/7. Plus, your driveway, exterior porches, and exterior walls must be clean, too.

If you put money into cleaning up the outside of your home, I can guarantee that buyers will be more likely to take a tour of the inside. Curb appeal is what draws buyers in, helps maintain their interest, and sets your home apart from the competition.

Really good advice from Laura! We especially like the tip of asking your friends and anyone you can to look at your house from the outside to see what they think. They may spot some things that you haven’t.

Getting Your Home Sold Quickly

Once you have the property cleaned up on the inside and outside it’s time to get the place sold. So just how do you go about that? Of course you can list your house with an agent, but that may take longer than you have. You might want to try and sell it yourself, or maybe even try and do both. Just make sure that if you decide to do both that in your contract with your realtor that you don’t owe them money if you sell it yourself.

Elise Sole wrote a great article with some tips to help in getting your house sold quickly:

Set a hard deadline

Want to bring buyers out of the woodwork quickly? It’s easy: Set a deadline for offers.

You can make this clear in your listing by saying you will be accepting offers only until a certain date—even as tight as one to two weeks after your home is listed for sale. That said, you should probably not announce why you need to sell quickly due to a new job or other circumstance, because buyers will smell desperation and take advantage of that. Just state your deadline without further explanation, and watch the offers roll in.

Selling your house to a flipper

There’s no faster home sale out there than to a flipper. These buyers enable you to usually sell the home as is—often for cash—removing the burden of costly home repairs.

“These situations usually appeal to homeowners who just need to get a property off their hands,” says Benuska. But there are downsides: Flippers may demand below-market price, so they can resell it later for a larger profit. So just be sure your flipper isn’t fleecing you up the wazoo; at the very least, compare offers from two or more investors so they can’t steamroll you.

Setting a hard deadline is a fantastic way to bring in buyers really fast! However we think that no matter what when selling to a conventional buyer and setting a hard deadline will tip them off that you need to sell quickly and will want to force negotiations for a lower price.

We really like her last tip of selling to a flipper – probably because that’s what we do 🙂
