Selling anything is pretty tough these days, given how unstable the world economy is performing lately. Therefore, everyone anywhere is affected by this trend. And, one might lose hope immediately given these circumstances especially if you are planning to sell your house.
Look no further, because if you are ready to move on from your old home then these are tips that you need to remember before calling and paying extra fees to your realtor.
Things To Remember And To Do
But first things first, what are the things to you need to remember first before selling your property and what needs to be done before handing it to a buyer.
Make sure that you have the deed of the house (and other related documents) with you.
Let’s begin with the legal side. Of course, before performing any sale of a house and/or property, one has to make sure that he or she does own the building and also, he or she should be aware of any legalities written in the law before selling your old unit to anyone. Be aware as well that you need the deed of the house in your possession to avoid any complications within your respective legal system.
Explore every single corner of the house for repairs
You cannot sell a house and expect a higher price rate for it if you are not going to perform any repairs to it. Understand that every buyer may or may not look at how old the building is however what will matter to them the most is if they do not have to deal with any damages that will lead to bigger problems once they moved into your house. Whether it’s a faulty faucet or clogged toilet bowls, these issues (whether there is a need for major or minor repair) should be resolved before you even show it to your prospective buyers.
Do not hesitate to perform also some improvement to your old house
This will depend on the budget you laid out for the repairs of the house. It doesn’t need to be a major overhaul of the house, but if you are looking to sell your house to a big price range, then you have to compete with other houses in the sale and invest in a makeover of your house. You can start with a few things like doing some re-painting of the house, both in the inside and the outside. If the flooring is a bit old, you may want to replace it with a new one. And finally, browse some modern house designs online so you have an idea about what other things that you may do to modernize your house. Expect for buyers to look immediately at your house once you’ve done these tasks.
Finding A Buyer Immediately
For starters, it’s a struggle for them to even begin selling their house because they do not have an idea of where and how to sell their house to the public. If you are this person, here’s a few options that you might consider to sell your property immediately.
Online Buy and Sell Websites for House and Properties
Nowadays, everything seems can be found online. Whether you need a gift for your loved one or a sale of a gadget, you can browse and buy online in a matter of seconds. Considering everybody has their own social media accounts, you know that most of our time is spent, online. Therefore, if you are finding ways to sell your house to a huge number of people, your very first option should be selling it on a trusted and well-known buy and sell a website for house and properties in your area. Research about the reputation and trust-level of the website(s) and finally, if you are satisfied with what you saw and researched, then that is the time you contact and post an ad in their website(s).
As opened in the first category, most of the people today own a social media account, therefore, this should be an option as well for you. However, you might wonder why this one was separated from the online buy and sell websites for house and properties category given they’re both online is because unlike the first one which is in a public domain setup, your social media (though also in a public domain setup) is limited within your friends and connections. In other words, as much as you post your ad in your social media and set it to the public, it is still limited to the number of friends and followers in your accounts. Given that, it is still a great avenue to post and sell your house because there might be people within your circle of friends that might be interested in your property and/or might refer to someone that they know that might be interested in purchasing your old house. As they say, use every option as possible.
Common friends and relatives
Of course, the last and certainly not the least option is making it knew to people that you know, whether it’s an old-friend, far relative or anybody that you know that may help in selling your house are all great choices. You just have to make sure though that you have well-explained the information of the house and also, try to market it the best that you can so that the price that you want for your old house will likely be met in the day of transaction.

Selling Your House According To Your Price Range
Selling your house is one thing, selling it according to your price is another? It is always expected that whenever you sell something to anyone, they will ask for a discount and/or for you to at least lessen the price which is not easy on your part especially if you’ve done some necessary repairs and renovations to it. Here are some ways that you could consider so that you will able to sell your house in good price rate.
Know the current trend of prices of houses for sale
Another thing that a house seller should put in mind is being realistic with their prices. You cannot sell a house for one Million US Dollars if your house is not even near a mansion-type regardless if you’ve done repairs and renovations to it. Understand and be updated with the price ranges of houses for sale for you to know whether this period is the right time to sell your house or you need to wait for a while and then when the time is right and prices are high, that is the only chance for you to sell your property at a good price.
Consult with property experts to know how much your house will realistically cost when sold
It is true that there are also some people who don’t know how much their house would cost when sold or how will they compare their property to others price range. That is why there are property experts who can help them out in terms of figuring out the sale price of their home. Things that may be considered for pricing are the location of the property as well as how old is it and of course, those that are related to the quality of construction of the house (repair and renovation done included).
Target those that have little knowledge when it comes to houses and properties
One might ask, “hey, it appears you are fooling someone”. Obviously no. The thing is, for as long as you are sticking to the real market price of your house then you are good. The reason why you have to target those people that have little knowledge to reality is because people that are vice-versa or those that have an idea to houses and properties, they might be the ones who will use their experience to it to make sure that you will lower the price, therefore, if you target someone who may appear as satisfied with what they have seen in your house then expect them to hand you the price that you wanted in the first place.
In conclusion, we know for a fact that selling a house that is according to your price is not as easy as selling lemonade outside (although that too is hard nowadays) however as mentioned in this article, that price target can be meet if you are willing to pour the extra effort (and money) to make it possible. Repair and renovations are important more than selling the house because you will not expect any buyers (even if you sell it in an “as is” condition) for your house if damages and destruction are evident the moment they step inside.
Finally, getting the price you want for your old house will always be tricky regardless, if you’ve done the right steps whether you’ve done the construction to it or you’ve marketed the house in a strong fashion, but more than anything else, timing will really matter when it comes to getting good price tag for your home. Whether it’s timing for high price rates of houses being sold to the timing for right people to come to you and agree to your price range. Consider it not only as good timing but also, luck on your part.
So if you are planning to move in a new house and sell your old property, consider all the steps given here because not only will you be able to sell your house quickly but also, get a good price out of it.
Good luck with selling your house!
