“Help! I’m Trying To Figure Out How To Sell My House Fast In Orlando“
5 Tips For Home Sellers
If you own a house in Orlando and want to sell it quickly, read this blog for 5 tips that will help you sell your house sooner!
Tip #1 – Skip The Fix-Up
The best way to sell your house fast is to have the least amount of impact on it. This means skipping the fix-ups, even if that means you are losing money when it comes time for closing.
Typically, this price loss is less than what you would make in repair profits after receiving an offer from a buyer. So, no matter how nice or new your renovation looks, someone else will always be able to make it look better and higher priced within weeks of purchasing the home.
Tip #2 – Forget Retail
When a home is sold “on the market” (usually listed by an agent), the prospective buyers are usually called “retail buyers,” meaning that the buyers are looking to buy a home that they want to live in. Unfortunately, retail buyers are notoriously unpredictable and they buy on their own timeline, which may not be your timeline! A better option is to think about selling to a professional home-buying company.
Tip #3 – Gather Your Data
One surprisingly time-consuming piece of the sales process is when the buyer requires information that the seller needs to find. This might include information such as when the HVAC unit was installed or when the roof was last shingled, etc. Homeowners who anticipate these questions and have the answers at their fingertips can usually accelerate the buyer’s timeline and potentially sell their homes faster.
Tip #4 – Bypass The Agent
An agent is motivated to sell your house and try to get the best price for it. While that is important, it means that they may not always have your preferred timeline in mind – since an agent may choose to delay if they think they can get a higher price. Bypassing an agent and selling directly to a buyer, such as a buyer like us at Optimal Home Buyers will help you to sell your house faster.
