8 Ways to Prepare for a Fast Sale

If you are looking to sell your home right now, you likely won’t have a problem getting it sold in Folsom, El Dorado County or most areas of Sacramento. It has been predicted that 2017 will be the fastest market in history. It’s a seller’s market right now in Sacramento, so houses are on the market one minute, sold the next. In the Sacramento Valley, we are seeing 48% of homes sell in less than 30 days. That is fast. So, if you plan on selling, there are a few things you will need to do to be prepared.

How to Prepare Your Home

  1. Get your preapproval out of the way so you can be ready to buy quickly and with confidence.
  2. Hire a good listing agent that knows how to market your home in a sellers’ market.
  3. Keep an eye on homes in the price range you are looking and in the area, you want to live in.
  4. Make a list of comparable homes selling in your area.
  5. Take care of any repairs your home might need.
  6. Clean and declutter, especially closets, bathrooms, and kitchen cabinets.
  7. Improve your curb appeal so potential buyers get the right impression at first glance.
  8. Be prepared to make your offer stand out from the competition.

Don’t Wait!

Having your preapproval ready before you put your home on the market is a very wise thing to do, so be prepared and get your preapproval! Getting your home looking the sharpest it can will help insure a quick sell. Just because it’s a hot seller’s market doesn’t mean your house will get top dollar if it is in disrepair, give a bad first impression, or appears to have storage problems. So, get ready, get set, and go! That perfect home is out there and waiting! Give us a call for a free consultation, and get your preapproval started. Thank you and have a great day.
