If you have decided to sell your Houston home and you want to know how to sell your Houston house fast, Big State Home Buyers has years of experience teaching people how to sell houses quickly – from staging, to marketing, to getting an inspection before you sell. There are SO many tips we could offer, but below are a few new things you could do to attract more buyers and get you to the closing date as fast as possible.
1. Transfer Warranty Deed
The first thing you could do to speed up the sale of your home is offer your buyers a transferable warranty. Transferring a warranty to the new owner guarantees them that the property is free of any claims, such as liens or ownership interests, made by creditors and others. This could definitely make the whole transaction more appealing to potential buyers and give them some extra confidence and piece of mind regarding purchasing your house.
2. Money Off Closing Costs
You could also offer $1,000 off closing costs and make them feel they are getting a deal. You could tell buyers you can close quickly and that you have gotten al your ducks in order. If buyers can see that you are determined to sell quickly, it might motivate them to buy quickly as well since they can see that you are taking this transaction seriously.
3. Make House Move-In Ready
Making your house move in ready is probably one of the most common things you hear and read about when you research selling your house fast and that’s cause its truly important. Buyers are more impressed and more likely to buy if they see that you’ve taken care and your home. There are the four major things that can make or break your sale and that’s foundation, roof, electric and HVAC. If those four are taken care of before selling, you will attract some serious buyers.
Aside from major repairs such as roof and foundation, its important to make sure house is tidy so buyers can see themselves living there. This means deep cleaning, getting rid of clutter and even doing some light painting and repairs. Potential buyers need to be able to see what they would do with the place if they decide to purchase the home.
The front of your home is very important as well. Maybe even a little more important than the inside of your home. Have you ever heard of the “8 Second Rule”? Buyers make a decision within 8 seconds of walking towards your property so make sure your home’s curb appeal is good! In other words, first impressions matter! Make sure your front lawn is mowed and taken care of. No kids toys all over the place and get rid of any eyesores that may create a bad first impression such as a broken window frame. If all these things are taken care of, potential buyers can have the security that they won’t have much to deal with once they move in thus making an offer right away!
4. Be Proactive
Be proactive about the usual hold-ups such as appraisals and inspections. Getting your house appraised and getting an inspection (and fixing what’s wrong with the home) are things you can do to show buyers you are serious about selling fast and will save you time and head aches along the way.
If you are serious about selling your home, do some or all of the things we have stated! We assure you doing all the things will help you close on your house sooner than you expected.
