Moving out of your apartment can be a long, stressful process. It is hard to find the time to pack up all of your belongings and take them with you when you are also trying to work on preparing for your new home. Staying in your apartment while you prepare for the move can be a challenge. If this sounds like something that has been keeping you awake at night, then don’t worry! We have five tips for selling your apartment quickly and without hassle to not become an even more significant burden on top of everything else.
1. Get a suitable real estate agent and show the place to your friends & family:
The first step is to find a real estate agent you trust. This could be someone from your building, or an agent who specializes in selling apartments like yours. The best agents are compassionate and experienced professionals that will do their absolute best to get the highest price possible for your property! Invite friends into the apartment to see how easy it is for guests. They will be more likely to buy if they know that their family and friends are able to come visit them often after they move in without being too inconvenienced by a long commute or tight space.
2. Price it to sell:
One of the most effective ways to sell your home fast is to price it competitively. It is essential to use a fair price to attract buyers and not make the property seem like an overpriced deal. Try not to be too emotionally attached because it will only lead to disappointment when buyers cannot make offers on your place due to their budget constraints. It also doesn’t hurt if you get high bids as soon as possible, giving some happy sellers more incentive than just “getting it over with.”
3. Clean, quick repairs and boost your curb appeal:
Cleaning is key! Keep the place clean, tidy, odor free and in good condition, so buyers don’t have to do any work before moving in themselves, making them much more likely to buy it as-is without needing any additional repairs or renovations.
When you list your home on the market, it may become necessary to have some minor repairs done before prospective buyers arrive. If you have time, do some quick repairs or hire someone like replacing a few light bulbs or painting the front door to give it that new home feeling.
This tip might seem obvious, but when buyers come in, they want a good first impression, so be sure you have everything clean, neat, and organized before showing off your home. This will make your home more appealing by making your home look like it has been cared for and looked after.
4. List it online:
Make sure you take photos of all the different spaces, including closets, bathrooms, bedrooms, living room and dining room before moving out so that buyers can get a clear idea of what each space has to offer when viewing your listing online through websites. This way, potential buyers do not have any surprises when visiting your home!
• Take pictures from every angle possible
• Show off public areas and the neighborhood
• Produce a video tour
• Show off flooring and any other materials used in your home
• Capture images of views from windows, balconies or patios
• Use a tour to show your home and highlight the amenities
• If you have a pet or child, be clear in your description if there are any allergies so that potential buyers know ahead of time.
• Include shots of all bedrooms, including closets and bathrooms. Ideally include a shot with you wearing clothes to show the scale of the room.
• Include images of your home with furniture to make it as easy for buyers to visualize themselves living there
The best way to sell your home is by making it as appealing as possible.
5. Sweeten the Deal:
To make an offer more attractive is to offer something to sweeten the pot. The best way to sweeten the pot is by offering something that potential buyers are looking for. For example:
• Offer to provide a keyless entry system
• Provide an air purifier
• Help with finding and setting up utilities/services in new home
• Provide homeowners insurance to cover the new home for at least one year
Remember to keep a sharp eye on pricing! In this market, buyers are not only picky about what they want but also where they’re willing to go for those wants, so if you price yourself too high or below others, then there’s no reason why people should come knocking on your door. Also, remember to stay away from dealing in cash deals as these can lead to some less than legal dealings such as fraud which could result in criminal prosecution! And finally, never let anyone pressure you into making hasty decisions because while quick sales may sound like an attractive idea, especially when trying to sell quickly, it also means that you could end up selling at a lower price and for less than what your home is worth.
