How to sell a home in Dallas faster, and for a fair price, is a common question that many home sellers ask. The professionals at We Buy Houses Dallastm have provided 5 tips of what a home seller can do BEFORE listing with a real estate agent.
DALLAS, May 24, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- It is no secret that selling a house in Dallas-Fort Worth can be one of the life's biggest transactions many homeowners.
However, before a home seller signs a listing agreement and starts marketing a house and bringing potential buyers into it, We Buy Houses Dallastm outlines a few things home sellers can do to possibly help increase the chances of selling a house faster and for a better price.
Sell a Dallas House Faster By Doing These 5 THINGS FIRST:
Take the time and make the house LESS PERSONAL by removing family photos and other memorabilia. Get rid of that shrine of little Johnny's sports metals and the fridge full of kids drawings. At first, this may feel very weird, but remember...a potential buyer needs to be able to picture themselves in the house. During an open house, or during one of a hundred or more home showings that might take place during a traditional real estate listing process, if a home seller keeps the the refrigerator door filled with pictures and family mementos... it makes it harder for the next buyer to see the fridge and mentally picture their own family photos on it.
Setting the price is one thing, setting the RIGHT price is another. It will make more sense for a home seller to consider the industry standards when determining a property's actual market value. What a home seller wants for a house and what a buyer is willing to pay for the house in the current market might be two very different numbers. When taking an initial meeting with a real estate agent, the agent or broker isn't providing the prospective home seller an offer like a cash home buying company does. Instead, the agent or broker is simply providing a professional estimate of the home's value based on the previous sales of similar homes in the neighborhood. Of course, depending on the real estate agent or broker, and taking into consideration how focused they are on the many properties they might be juggling, and how they are sourcing their comparable homes data, are all important factors to consider for a home seller when meeting with an agent or a broker to discuss their home value. No matter how experienced, a real estate agent or broker may not be able to set the right listing price, and the price they set may become public record once the property is marketed, so the decision is very important. So how does a home seller get a fair value of their home before signing a listing agreement with a real estate agent? Here's the trick and it's actually quite simple:
Contacting a reputable Dallas Home Buying Company like We Buy Houses Dallastm for a free, no obligation home offer before signing a listing agreement with a real estate agent allows a home seller to get a real cash offer, which provides a home value for the seller to consider without the need to make any repairs, or show the property. An offer from a professional home buying company doesn't require any money to be invested before the sale, and the timing is set by the seller, because the buyer already has the financing and the experience to close in as quickly as 7-14 days. On the flipside, however, once a listing agreement is signed, the real estate agent is tied to the property for as long as the listing agreement states, and therefore, the real estate agent can take a large commission even a house is eventually sold directly to a cash buyer company. So the order matters immensely. Remember, to save money, and a lot of and get a cash home valuation for free, get the no obligation offer first from the cash buyer company before signing with a real estate agent, and not the other way around.
According to their website, "Prospective home sellers may call We Buy Houses Dallastm to find out how much their house is worth in cash. But in our experience, the same home sellers take that cash home offer when they find out the amount of money they can save in repairs, holding fees like mortgage payments and insurance payments, and the simple hassle free home selling experience of selling to a qualified, professional cash home buyer."
Technically, once a home seller has the house marketed, in many cases, it can attract attention right away. As a matter of fact, studies have shown that over 70 percent of the potentials buyers will see the home within 3 to 6 months after its listing. However, if the house is not getting the attention expected by the home seller after it's been marketed... there are some things a home seller can do to make a house look better to potential buyers.
Although, this step is often ignored, it is surprisingly important. After all, every buyer will actually want to know everything about the house before he or she takes the rein. Some questions a home buyer might want to know are: Who normally does the maintenance and after how long? When were the important systems like the HVAC last maintained? How old is the roof? Have there been any upgrade in the past 5 years? How much money has been invested in repairs over the course of the ownership?
Having the paperwork will install confidence in the home seller, and in how well a home seller has taken care of a home.
