HOW TO SELL MY HOME FAST IN A SLOW MARKET
Whether you are immigrating soon or simply need the funds to purchase a new property before your OTP expires, sometimes the need exists to sell as fast as possible. But, what are the things I can do to sell my home fast even when market conditions are slow?
Sign a sole mandate to sell fast
Many sellers have the misconception that the more agents you have marketing your home, the better your chances it will sell. In fact, having a property listed with more than one agent decreases an agent’s motivation to work as hard as they can to sell the property. On the other hand, when signing a sole mandate, you’ve given an agent a timeframe in which to sell your property, at the end of which, they might lose out on the sale completely.
Listen to the advice of a fast seller
If you’ve partnered with a real estate professional with a proven track record of sales, then trust the advice he or she gives you when it comes to the marketing of your home. Whether they advise that you repaint a room, declutter a space, drop the price, or simply ask you to leave the house for a viewing, don’t waste time fighting their advice. Instead, allow them to do what you’ve hired them to do – which is to sell your home fast and as close to full value as possible.
