Can You Sell Your Residence in One Day?

by Allison Jaffe 04/14/2019

How a home seller approaches the real estate market may dictate his or her success. For example, if a seller allocates time and resources to learn about the property selling journey, he or she may be able to plan ahead and sell a house in a single day. On the other hand, a seller who fails to showcase his or her residence to the right groups of potential buyers may struggle to achieve the optimal results.

As a home seller, it is essential to do whatever it takes to streamline the property selling journey. Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you speed up the home selling journey so you can accomplish your desired property selling goals faster than ever before.

1. Improve Your House's Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is a key tenet of the home selling journey. If your home has amazing curb appeal, it likely will generate lots of interest from prospective buyers. As a result, your house may stand out from similar properties in your city or town, and you could accelerate the property selling journey.

To enhance your home's curb appeal, you should repair any damaged siding, mow the lawn and conduct assorted home exterior upgrades. If you need help with home exterior improvements, you can always hire professional contractors as well.

2. Eliminate Clutter

Let's face it – clutter is a problem that can be tough for home sellers to eliminate. Yet a seller who spends time removing antiques, paintings and other clutter can make it easy for buyers to envision what life may be like if they purchase a residence. As such, sellers should devote time to eliminate clutter so they can show off the true size and beauty of their houses.

Sometimes, it helps to rent a storage unit prior to listing a residence. A storage unit allows a home seller to safely store various personal belongings until his or her house sells. Then, this individual can move his or her personal belongings from a storage unit to a new residence.

3. Hire a Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent is willing to do whatever it takes to help you seamlessly navigate the house selling journey. He or she will promote your residence to prospective buyers, offer tips and guidance during the home selling journey and much more. By doing so, a real estate agent will help you get the best-possible results during the home selling journey.

Let's not forget about the support that a real estate agent provides as you determine whether to accept or reject an offer to purchase your home, either. At this point, a real estate agent will provide an honest, unbiased recommendation about how to proceed with a homebuying proposal. He or she also is happy to negotiate with a buyer's agent on your behalf to help you maximize the value of your home sale.

Want to streamline the home selling process? Use the aforementioned tips, and you can boost your chances of enjoying a fast, profitable home selling experience.

"I determined early in my real estate career to focus on the specific needs of my respective clients rather than a specific geographic area. My job isn’t to sell buyers on a town or school district – they know where they want to live – my job is to sell the one property in that location that my client has to sell. My buyer clients want options and having lived and worked in Westchester, Rockland, the Bronx, and Manhattan, I know where to find those options.”
