There are many reasons why some homes sell faster than other homes. Here is a list of 9 factors that contribute to how quickly your home is going to sell. Curb appeal is very important to purchasers. They will make a first impression from the moment they drive by the home. If your home lacks curb appeal there are many things you can do, such as paint the exterior of your home to give it a fresh look, add landscaping, add a wreath to the front of the door, and pressure wash the (driveway, sidewalks, and roof).
Other factors that many buyers will take into account is the school ratings and they will pay more for a home with better school ratings. Homes that are move-in ready will also sell faster.
Sellers if you are listing a home with an agent, make sure they use professional photography as homes that have good quality photos are going to sell faster and for more money. Virtual tours are also nice and help sell homes quicker.
If your home is vacant and does not have any furniture, staging can help buyers picture what their own furniture will look in the home and have a better idea of placement of the rooms. A home with a lot of furniture, decluttering is a must! You don’t want buyers distracted by all of the belongings and not focused on the features of the house.
Homes that are well designed with extra features such as quartz, farmhouse sink, subway tile, etc will also appeal to buyers and help the homes sell quicker.
