Selling Your North Texas Home? Tips For Fast Selling

selling your north texas home

As trusted Flower Mound real estate professionals, we know that some homes sell nearly as quickly as the “For Sale” sign is placed in the yard, while others sit on the market for months. While there are several reasons for this, one of them is the fact that, in some cases, sellers don’t want to do what it takes to attract buyers, which is updating and making repairs. Are you selling your North Texas home, and hoping it goes fast? You might want to pay attention to our advice below.

Consider a family who’s lived in a home for 20 years and is ready to downsize. All they want to do is sell the home, then move on – even if they don’t know exactly where it is they’re going once the home sells. Lots of people want to sell “as is,” but any reputable agent will tell you buyers don’t want a home that needs “fixing up.” People are busy, and want a home that’s ready to move in to!

When you don’t have a plan for when your home sells or reject suggestions made by your agent in regards to updating, renovations, or pricing, it can leave the agent with a bad taste in his or her mouth. After all, if your agent isn’t excited about your home and its potential for buyers, how can he/she possibly portray excitement to potential buyers and help them experience a great first impression? It’s impossible.

What happens when you work with an experienced real estate agent well in advance of the move, and listen to suggestions about minor repairs, updates, and price? Your home is far more likely to be snapped up at the price you hoped it would sell for.

It may be something as simple as painting a room, packing up all of the personal family photos and souvenirs from your trip to Japan, removing blinds from the windows that are decades old and out-of-date. When you’ve lived in a home for decades, you can be sure that some elements and features are NOT what today’s buyers are looking for!

Basically, when you want to sell your home as fast as you possibly can, it’s recommended you work with an agent and LISTEN to suggestions. Making a few changes or repairs won’t cost you an arm and a leg, but it will make your home more appealing and valuable to potential buyers. Instead of resisting, consider what today’s buyers are looking for, and the fact that it could be very different from what your home currently offers.

At Team Nelson, our Flower Mound real estate agents want to help you sell your home as quickly as possible! We do much more than list your home and show it to buyers – we provide the guidance necessary to ensure yours is not one of those homes that sits, and sits . . . and sits, while other homes all around are selling like hotcakes. Give us a call today!
