I am asked that question dozens of times a week. There are three major factors that will decide how quick your home can sell.
1.) Condition – Is your home presented well. Does it have updates and upgrades? Does your home have neutral decor? Is it in a good and desirable location? Is it clean? Are there no strong odors such as cooking, smoking or pet odors?
2.) Marketing – Is your home on the multiple listing service? Are you using a real estate agent? Is it being advertised in the prime areas and vehicles that home buyers search for homes at?
3.) Price – The MOSt important factor. It is key that your home is priced well. Having an appraisal or market analysis is key in determining current market value that are no older then 3 months dated. Buyers in today’s market want a bargain. Pricing your home high or above the market average price will result in two outcomes, your home will expire off the market or it will never get an offer. Price it right rom the start!
