5 proven tips to sell your home faster in Little Rock!
This is the first step and most people never do this. Pack up your house before you list it! That may sound crazy BUT you are going to be moving regardless – why not get a head start and pack now. We recommend starting to pack everything up that is not used in your daily life. This will help you with your showings and open house as well because you will be creating a clutter free space for potential buyers to see. This has been proven to subconsciously allow buyers to envision themselves living in your house.
Get Quality Photos
We live in a time where most people are transitioning to doing business and making decision over the internet. High quality and well thought out photos of your home will help to sell your home faster in Little Rock. The pictures that you use in your listing should have good lighting and highlight the best areas/features of your home. It may even be worth it to have your photos professionally edited. You will only have seconds to get the attention of someone scrolling through your photos, you really want to grab the attention of buyers.
Take it from us – the curb appeal of your home can make or break the sale of your home. This is the FIRSt thing a buyer see’s when they visit your home. We recommend that you spend most of your effort in the front of the yard and leave the backyard more of a blank canvas. Here are some tips to increase the curb appeal of your house:
- Mow the grass, pick weeds
- Consider planting some flowers and introducing some color
- Consider painting the door a contrasting color
- Touch up the address, garage door, and other items in plain view from the front of the house.
The Price is Fair
This may be the most important step for a fast sale in Little Rock. You can reach out to a real estate agent to get a valuation but we also recommend you do your own homework. You should look at what other similar homes are selling for in your neighborhood and price it based off of those recent sales. We do not advise you to price a record high for your neighborhood as that will likely lead to you having to reduce the price. A price drop is not a good look for your listing, it will give the impression that there may be an issue with the home or you are desperate to sell it. It’s important to be competitive with your price and match what the market is demanding – this all starts with quality research.
Showcase Your Neighborhood
Do not be mistaken, a buyer is just not buying your house, they are also buying the location. Savvy sellers will find a way to showcase their neighborhood, community, and area that the property is in. We have seen sellers put together an informational pamphlet that includes unique information about the area. Let them know about parks, lakes, and anything you love about the area yourself. Most people are not just looking for a new house but they want it to fit into their lifestyle.
