How to Sell a House Fast

Just got a great new job on the opposite coast or getting transferred in a month? There are many reasons you might need to sell your home quickly and there are some steps you can take to help that happen. In many areas of the country, the housing market is slowing down, but selling quickly is still a possibility.

  • Consider hiring a real estate agent. Unless you have a lot of time to devote to selling your home, it will probably be difficult to sell your home quickly unless you use an agent.
  • Price your home reasonably. Use a Web-based home valuation tool and talk to your agent about how much similar homes in your neighborhood have recently sold for, and price your home accordingly.
  • Stage your home. This will help anyone who wants to sell their home, but is especially important when you're trying to get buyers interested quickly.
  • According to Smart Money Magazine, hiring a photographer and posting the professionally-done photos on the Internet with your listing can help generate interest quickly.
  • Smart Money also advises sellers to consider adding concessions to help attract a buyer. Offering to pay extra fees that are not your responsibility, or making improvements so the buyer won't have to after they move in could make your home more enticing.
