How To Impress A Potential Home Buyer

Tuesday, February 4, 2020

You don't want your home sitting on the market forever. If you have a property that you are ready to move into, it's important that you find somebody to move into your current home as quickly as possible.

Of course, it's not as easy as it sounds. With so much choice in the real estate market, the buyer has the freedom to look elsewhere if they don't take a liking to what you have to offer. 

So, what can you do to impress a potential homebuyer and sway them to your side? Here are some ideas we think you will find useful.

#1: Accept a cash offer

The house-buying process can be a long and tiresome affair, but a lot of the hard work and waiting game can be offset if you are able to accept cash offers. This will serve you well, and it will also sway the home buyer's interest, especially if they are looking to buy something for an investment opportunity or if they are looking to move into a house as quickly as you are trying to sell. This article at Gem Homes goes into other reasons why you might want to sell your home for cash, so have a read, and even consider using their house-buying services if you're in a hurry to sell.

#2: Boost your home's value

Your property is but one of many, so the buyer will need an extra incentive to consider it. Finding ways to boost your home's value is a must then, as not only will you appeal to the buyer's interests, but you will sell your home for more money too. So, you can do simple things, such as adding a fresh lick of paint here and there, and making repairs around the property. You could also incorporate smart technologies into your home, which many buyers place value on for both money and world-saving reasons. You might also consider adding extra rooms to your home with an extension, although be sure to budget your finances if considering this option.

#3: Sweeten the deal

To encourage somebody to buy from you, you might want to give them an extra incentive. So, you might want to leave some of your furnishings behind, especially if the buyer takes an interest in them during the viewing. You might also want to bring down the price of your property a little, especially if the buyer is torn between your property and another. Of course, you don't want to damage your own bank account in the process, but if you have been able to raise the value of your home anyway, you might have the financial leeway to consider both of these suggestions. 

#4: Streamline the process

When the buyer is trying to schedule a viewing with you, don't leave them waiting around for long. When they want to look at the property's documents, have them ready and waiting. And when they show an interest in your property, don't leave them dangling if they are ready to make an offer. By streamlining the process in such ways, you will both impress the buyer and have the opportunity to sell your house quickly. 

We wish you every success with your house move!
