You're striving to get rid of a House that just won't sell?

Avoid Foreclosure Now Houston - If you pay attention to the talk show hosts, realtors, news anchors, or the President of the United States all you hear is how satisfied they are with the condition of the real estate market… so why can't I get an offer? The realtors are saying properties are getting a number of offers, and setting records.

If that is the case… where is your offer?

These hints could be just what you need to get rid of your property.

Need To Sell Your Property Fast

  • 6 Tactics To Get An Offer & Get Your Home Sold

1. Don't be embarrassed to request help - just make certain they are competent.

You remember 2008- all those realtors running around pounding their chests saying " we know what we're doing"… you remember what happened …obviously they did not.

The reality is that they do not. A "new speculator" in real estate can be compared to the proverbial bull in the china shop. It is just so tricky for them to not wreck everything…. the complexities of financing, evaluation, and deal structure. For most folks buying/selling real estate is the biggest investment they've ever been part of- don't let the experience along with your financial future be ruined by trusting the advice of a novice. If you want great results, partner with the pros.

2. Don't make too many improvements.

Too often we see over-improved homes – those where the owners have gone too far. Improving your house with $100,000 worth of renovations/upgrades when neighborhood houses only go for $125,000 means that your property will be on the market for a very long time, you will lose money, and in most cases that it will sit on the market with no offers and that when you finally accept one that you'll lose money. Remember anytime someone buys a "used" property they'll want to add their own touches, flavor, style, and flair so if you do a lot of "permanent", expensive, new renovations you'll limit who may be interested in buying your [city house. I don't care how rich they are everyone at least cringes at the throught of ripping out something new. Think, " what will appeal to the biggest number of potential buyers". And remember, keep it light, airy, and clutter free.

3. Make necessary improvements.

Buyers are easily scared by small unfixed things, let alone major issues. Show that you've been a responsible house owner and get all the little details fixed.

Don't leave gaps in the trim or behind plates of the switches. Call in a licensed home inspector to verify the condition of your Property for prospective buyers. This goes a long way towards establishing confidence that they are making the right choice in buying your property.

4. Exterior and Interior Design Matter.

If the houses exterior does not pique their interest, you have no hope of selling your house. Buyers should get a sense of your style and theme. Make it cohesive don't let it be a hodge podge. Update the landscaping, paint the walls, and most importantly keep it clean. Consider hiring a professional designer to help tastefully stage the property.

5. Pricing matters a lot.

If you want to get serious offers your house has to be priced right. If you have done everything you should do to get a buyer and you have gotten no takers… chances are your home is priced too high.
