There is more to selling your home than simply putting up a “For Sale” Sign in the driveway.
For starters, you’d have to prep the house well, stage it just right, and put up lots of posters, ads, and listings on local real estate agent sites to increase your odds of finding a prospective buyer.
Unless luck is on your side, it can take more than 6 months to get someone to offer a reasonable amount for the house, leave alone close the deal.
If everything is, however, done right (from prepping, staging, to pricing), there’s a better chance to sell house fast Fort Worth in less than 3 months.
Although real estate market trends might be unpredictable, you can make the whole process (or wait) much shorter.
Here are a few tips on how.
1. Prep the House (Work on Its Curb Appeal)
Start by getting rid of or removing all personalized items from the house. Family photos, your kid’s baby pictures, posters, and trophies should be tucked away safely and out of sight.
Consider investing in a temporary storage option to keep all the personal items, extra furniture, clothes, and any other items you might have.
This should help create more space making the house seem larger than it might be.
In addition to this, removing personal effects from the home makes it easier for prospective buyers to envision themselves in the house.
The next step would be to make small/minor upgrades to the same. This is particularly important if you have been living in the house for more than 6 months.
Some of the recommended upgrades include replacing light fixtures, faucets, shower curtains, and fixing any broken kitchen cabinets and drawers. A fresh lick of paint would be welcome at this stage.
2. Stage the Fort Worth House
Home staging plays a critical role in improving the home’s appeal, as well as how fast you find a prospective buyer.
The process generally involves highlighting the strengths of the house while making its flaws softer than they are, hence improving the potential buyer’s perspective.
While you could choose to stage the house yourself, we would recommend enlisting the services of a professional home stager.
Here are, however, a few tips for the DIYer home stager.
a. Use neutral colors on the décor, furniture, and walls
b. Let as much natural light in as possible
c. Have everything deep cleaned
d. Take high-resolution photos of the house for the listing.
3. Find the Best Real Estate Agent in Fort Worth
With the home ready for the sale, you can then have it listed on the best real estate websites locally.
This, however, means looking for and identifying, just the right person/realtor for the job.
More than 50% of those looking to buy a home will first sift through these listings before looking elsewhere.
Having the house listed on these sites, and promoting the listing on social media will help sell house fast Fort Worth.
4. Sell to A FW Wholesaler
Unless you are willing to go through all these, the easier route would be to sell it to a wholesaler.
A good number of Real Estate Companies in Fort Worth will offer to buy the house for cash as-is.
