If you are considering putting your house on the market, there are certainly a number of things you should do first so as to get it ready for viewing. Besides current financial hardships, the primary reason why homes take a long time to sell is because the potential buyers cannot see themselves residing in that place. There are a lot of trade secrets that can improve a home's visual appeal, yet there are also many other things that the seller can do to get their home sold fast. Here is a short overview of what sellers have to be doing to sell their property in today's competitive market.

 The most important thing to do is distance yourself from the feelings you put into making this house your home. Although it may be difficult to do that, selling your home for an excellent price is the most crucial consideration. To be able to take yourself out of the home, you must make it anonymous to buyers. This means giving up your forest green paint and wedding pictures for natural tones and less personal art. Next you must (we reiterate, must) get rid of all clutter and keep the house clean. Now, this is really easier said than done, since many people still reside in the home while trying to sell it. When cleaning up and de-cluttering, it is very important to not neglect the yard areas and garages as well. No matter what you do, if it is tucking items underneath a bed, getting rid of broken-down trees, or packing early, just make sure that your home is attractive. After all, potential customers are judging each house in accordance to the others.

 House improvements to the most crucial areas in the home, such as the bathrooms and the kitchen, are guaranteed big money makers. If it's not in your budget to do these improvements, you may wish to consider leaving some allowances for selling price negotiation involving these spaces in your contract. Beyond the physical appearances, key issues to the home, like a leaking roof or an awful furnace, have to be repaired before selling. Again, if they cannot be, then you'll have to divulge these issues right away and leave room for them on the negotiation table.

 Listing your property with the right agent is also something that directly affects how quickly you will sell your house. Trustworthy real estate agencies like Remax and Keller Williams have broad marketing programs where they publish listings of your home. These listings create leads on your property. It's your realtor's job to market your house honestly and to the right demographic. For example, if you have a small condominium for sale in Louisville, Colorado, it could be smart to try to market your property toward new families or working professionals. Your realtor should be ready to suggest things like converting the second bedroom as a nursery or an office/guestroom.

Selling a home in today's economic times can be tough. Most homes sit on the market for months and many times up to a year. Home owners are told by Real Estate agent that they may need to make tens of thousands of dollars of repairs. Heating units may need to be repaired, carpets, and most always a new paint job. You want to make money not spend it all just to have your home sit on the market. That's money wasted! You may think that you are inventing in your home when you make those repairs but you could just be dumping money down the drain. You may think that the new fresh coat of white paint will satisfy any new owner. Only to find out that the new owner wants blue paint.

So my first point is its best to sell "as is" to save money and time. It's best to sell it as is to avoid spending money you may need to move or buy another house. Check locally for an investor that can help you with a home evaluation.

You also want to have a definite time frame that you want to sell you house in. You will need to give an investor or buyer enough time to get financing. Point number two is set a sell by date. This will give your buyer a good idea of how much time they will need to secure money and make repairs.

Point three is be prepared to sell for less than what you think your house may be worth. Remember a buyer may be working with you on your time constraints so you may have to give some on the price. Investors are looking for sellers that want to sell fast and that means now. There are tons of sellers that are thinking about selling in three to six months but there are also tons of sellers that want to sell now.

Figure out where you are so you will have an understanding of how an investor or buyer may respond to you. Just being prepared to take less than what your house may be worth will put you at the top of the list and make your home more attractive to a buyer and there for much easier to sell.
