Bob Bwayo, a real estate agent for almost two decades, says the biggest reason for wanting to sell property and sell it fast is in cases of financial emergency.
“There are so many reasons people sell their property from getting better ones, to structural problems. However, when someone puts you on pressure, it is always a financial emergency,” Bwayo explains.
There are different things one can do if they want their house sold as fast as possible.
Set the right price
The most important is setting the right price. Kassim Nkiro of Boston Real Estate agents has had to give up selling property because of the client’s refusal to price their land accurately.
“A certain princess wanted to sell her property and she had an unrealistic amount in her mind. Regardless of my explanations, she has refused to change the price. It has been five years now and the property still remains on the market,” he narrates.
Nkiro says the longer the home stays on the market, the more difficult it will be to sell because people assume that it hasn’t sold because something is wrong with it.
Make house look good
Another way to sell a house fast is to make it look good. Nothing is more important than a first impression.
So, consider what a potential home buyer may think as he or she drives up to your property for the very first time. Give it some fresh paint, fix broken windows, glasses and clean the compound.
A house that is in pristine condition is more attractive to buyers. It’s also easy to show off all its potential.
In order to attract attention and to make your home more memorable, consider custom designs or additions such as landscaping, high-grade windows or a new roof.
This can help improve the home’s aesthetics, while potentially adding value to the home. Any improvements should be practical. Use colours and designs that will appeal to the widest audience. The colours should complement the home and its amenities, such as building a deck or patio adjacent to an outdoor swimming pool.
