5 Tips For Home Sellers
If you’ve got a house in Portsmouth and want to sell it quickly, read this blog for 5 tips that will help you sell your house sooner!
Tip #1 – Skip The Fix-Up
One of the most expensive and time-consuming exercises when you are trying to sell a home is the repairs. If you contact a real estate agent, most likely they will recommend that you do repairs. Of course, they know what traditional buyers want – nice, move-in ready houses where everything is fixed, works perfectly, and hopefully has been renovated in the last several years. Unfortunately, doing repairs will cost you a lot today, not to mention the delay in trying to get contractors or parts/materials in today’s slow logistic chains. The larger the renovation the longer time you will need to prepare the house. Can you skip the agent, commissions and sell your house direct to a cash buyer? Of course you can. We can help.
Tip #2 – Forget Retail
When a home is sold through a real estate agent on the regular retail market, you will be dealing with unpredictable buyers. They will want a home made for them, will want to move it at their timelines and there may be some restrictions possibly from trying to get their financing in order. A better and faster option is to sell your home to a professional homebuying company.

Tip #3 – Gather Your Data
One of the lesser-known delay issues may arise from buyers asking questions that may not be easy for a homeowner to answer, such as the exact age of the roof, or the HVAC unit. You may have inherited the house, or maybe you bought it after the roof was replaced, but it may be challenging to answer these questions to a potential buyer quickly. Seller who can answer these questions with great detail and certainty can sell their homes faster.
Tip #4 – Bypass The Agent
An agent will want to sell your house to the highest bidder, which is a good thing, but that also means that they may want to delay the sale and keep the ad open for longer, in hope to find a buyer that will offer more (and for them to get a higher commission). It is true, the longer you wait the higher chance of getting a higher price may be (sometimes), but in the end, if you are looking to sell faster, or to sell before a certain date, that may be a problem for you. Bypassing an agent will not only save you money from not having to pay agent commissions, but also, when you sell your house to a pro home buyer like Coastal Edge Homebuyers, you will sell faster, usually with just one showing, and you can even set your own closing date, so no guessing!
