We Buy Houses for Cash Commerce City
Selling your house is not such an easy task, however, if your house has been sitting on the market for months or perhaps years, it’s time to change strategies.
At Denver Property Flip, we buy houses for cash in Commerce City and help you offload your house when you aren’t getting any offers. However, you may want to scrutinize the whole process and see whether there is something else you did wrong that’s causing the house not to sell. Maybe there are some mistakes you made causing the house to sit.
To make sure that your house doesn’t have to stay on the market for several months, here are some tips on how to sell it fast, at least if you have the time – and money – on your hands.
Check your décor
It’s obvious that this is your house you are selling; however, you don’t have to show every buyer in every aspect, especially your décor. The kind of décor that you have personalized for yourself isn’t the one you want potential buyers to find in your house when they come to view. Make sure you remove all of your personal belongings from plain sight, something that should give potential buyers an ample time to imagine themselves in the house or rooms with their personal stuff.
All this talk is about proper staging. This is what you need to do in order to improve the chances of receiving offers for your house, otherwise, it may not sell anytime soon. If you can’t stage the house by yourself, you might want to hire a professional stager to take care of the business, but all in all, try to keep the house and/or rooms simple, neutral and welcoming.
The interior of the house
Even though your décor forms a significant part of your house, there are other areas that are far worse offenders when compared to modern standards. The bathrooms and kitchen are the areas in question and perhaps it’s why they are also so costly to remodel. Rather than spend more than $50,000 on remodeling the entire kitchen, you can make quick fixes such as installing new fixtures and countertops, window treatments, fixing knobs on the kitchen cabinets and even painting them. These are simple fixes, but they make be worth more than the $50,000 kitchen.
Watch out for your pets
You might be the best friend your cat or dog has ever had, but that’s not true for potential buyers who come to view the house. Some might be completely your opposite and in fact, they can even smell a pet. These are the type that will be completely turned off and they might even be afraid to enter the house at the sight of barking dogs.
It’s not that easy to lock a pet in one room and conduct business as usual in the other room. Besides, the client might want to check the room that is holding the pet captive, what would be your reaction? That alone would send them away with curiosity and they definitely won’t be making you an offer. The best solution would be to have a friend watch over them – which is even harder considering you don’t really know when the next potential buyer will walk in – or take them to a kennel. If possible, you can even have your pets stay at some other place until you sell your house.
Selling a house by yourself can be a huge mistake
Some people, especially those in no hurry to sell, choose to sell houses by themselves. This, as expected, can take time, unless the seller had a specific person, perhaps a friend or relative, to buy the house almost immediately. If your house has been sitting on the market for ages and you haven’t consulted a real estate agent yet, you better do that. Sometimes, selling a house on the open market by yourself is just a huge mistake.
This is a market that is controlled by real estate agents and as such, it won’t be easy for an “outsider” to come in and see immediate success. If you do want to sell fast by yourself, we buy houses for cash Commerce City and pay the money after just 5 days. Call us now on (720) 370-9595.
