When you’re selling your home, it’s often because you want to buy another one. Maybe you want something larger or you need to move closer to family or your job. When you’re selling one to buy another, time is of the essence, as it is very difficult to get two mortgages at one time.
In general, you’ll want to sell your first home as quickly as you can so you’ll have the liquid assets you need to put down on your next home.
Here are some tips to make sure your home sells as quickly as possible:
- The Price is Right – A competitively priced home is more likely to sell faster because it opens up the bidding to everyone in that price range, instead of the few people who are so in love with your home that they’re willing to pay more.
- The House is in Great Condition – Having your house in tip-top shape will make it much more attractive to buyers, especially buyers who want to move in fast and not wait for repairs.
- The Seller is Motivated – Motivation is the key to getting anything done. If you’re really motivated to sell, you’ll be more willing to negotiate with buyers. Your Realtor will help you through the negotiation process and look out for your best interests.
- Work with an Experienced Realtor – Working with an experienced Realtor will streamline your “sell-to-buy” process. Realtors in The Silva Group have more than 300 years of combined experience, so there are almost no situations they haven’t seen before.
