Why I Blog about How to Sell Your Home FAST
I’ve been away for awhile with my son in the hospital for over 3 weeks. While gone, I asked myself why I blog about how to sell your home FAST.
In real estate, EVERYTHING matters when it comes down to how to sell your home FAST if you want to keep more of your own money. Unfortunately a large percentage of agents who actively sell real estate don’t really have a plan for that to happen.
There are only 3 ways to sell your home fast (if it sells at all):
- Price it right to get multiple offers
- Stage it with the right arrangement and accessories to attract the most buyers
- Choose the right Realtor that consistently sells homes fast
I believe the Realtor you hire will determine the results you get. Most sellers think like the average Realtor…just put the house on the market and it will sell immediately, with multiple offers and for some insane amount of money. Will it?
The average Johnson County house for sale
Fact of the matter is, about 30% of the houses that come on the market never sell. The average days on the market in Johnson County is over 50 days. The list price to sale price averages around 97%. That means if you’re selling a $400,000 house, you might be on the market for almost 2 months. Your final list price to sale price might be around $388,000. How would that make you feel?
Or what if?
What if you really did sell immediately, with multiple offers and for some insane amount of money? For example, my house at 12703 High Drive did sell the first day on the market, with multiple offers and for $415,000 CASH. That was the lowest of the offers we received but it was cash with a 2 week close.
Had that house been average, my sellers might still be on the market. We’d probably be into our 2nd or 3rd price reduction by now and they would have ended up selling for around $388,000. Instead, they did everything right and instead of losing $12,000 on the sale, they gained $15,000*. (*We did reduce the price a bit to accommodate some repairs that needed to be done). That’s a difference of $27,000 between the average agent and someone like me who cares about your money and has a plan to help you keep it.
