Five Ways to Speed Up The Sale of Your Home

Tweaking a few basic elements can make the difference between a quick home sale and a long, frustrating ordeal.

1. Price it right. Set a price at the lower end of your property’s realistic price range. Use a real estate tool known as Absorption Rate along with a well thought out Comparative Market Analysis to set the right price. Your REALTOR® will help.

2. Get your house market-ready for at least two weeks before you begin showing it. The money you spend conditioning and staging your home will usually be far less than your first price reduction. Homes that are move in ready, STAGED, and priced right typically always sell faster than the competition.
Consider This:
In a 2004-2006 study conducted by, 300 homes with an average of 163.7 days on the market, were Staged by Accredited Staging Professionals (ASPs™).The homes were all then re-listed. They subsequently sold with an average days-on-market of 13.7. Homes that were Staged before being listed, sold in an average of 8.9 days.

Of the same 300 homes, those that were Staged after spending time on the market, had an average equity of $14,074. That’s compared to homes that were Staged prior to being listed, which saw a 5.8% increase for an average equity of $16,784.

On average, Staged homes sold 50% faster and for 6.9% more money than homes that are not Staged.

93 Percent of ASP Staged homes sell in one month or less.

3. Be flexible about showings. It’s often disruptive to have a house ready to show on the spur of the moment, but the more often someone can see your home, the sooner you’ll find a buyer.

4. Be ready for the offers. Decide in advance what price and terms you’ll find acceptable.

5. Don’t refuse to lower your price, especially in a "buyers' market". If your home has been on the market for more than 30 days without an offer, be prepared to consider a reduction in your asking price.

Price vs. Time On Market
Price vs. Time On Market time-line
Timing is critical in real estate. The Price vs. Time on Market graphic above demonstrates the importance of placing your property on the market at a realistic price from the start.

A home attracts the most excitement and interest and has the greatest chance of selling at the right price when it is first placed on the market for sale.

Pricing your home correctly, from the start, will help it sell in the shortest possible time frame.
