5 Tips For Home Sellers
If you own a house in Austin and want to sell it quickly and get paid fast, read this blog for 5 tips that will help you sell your house sooner!
Tip #1 – Skip The Fix-Up
One of the most time-consuming reasons that homes don’t get sold as quickly as the seller wants to sell is because of the renovations, repairs, and clean-up that needs to happen before the home can go on the market. Real estate agents understand what their buyers are looking for, so they usually urge sellers to make renovations. Unfortunately, the larger the renovation, the longer the sale is delayed. But you CAN skip this step!
Tip #2 – Forget Retail
When a home is sold “on the market” (usually listed by an agent), the prospective buyers are usually called “retail buyers,” meaning that the buyers are looking to buy a home that they want to live in. Unfortunately, retail buyers are notoriously unpredictable and they buy on their own timeline, which may not be your timeline! A reason for their unpredictability can be that their bank financing does not go through, or simply that husband and wife can’t agree on what they want and become finnicky. A better option when looking to sell an outdated home or a home you just need to sell quickly is to think about selling to a professional home-buying company.

Tip #3 – Gather Your Data
One surprisingly time-consuming piece of the sales process is when the buyer requires information that the seller needs to find. This might include information such as when the HVAC unit was installed or when the roof was last shingled, etc. Homeowners who anticipate these questions and have the answers at their fingertips can usually accelerate the buyer’s timeline and potentially sell their homes faster. If the home is rented out Tenant leases will also be needed so make sure to have those on hand.
Tip #4 – Bypass The Agent
An agent is motivated to sell your house and try to get the best price for it. While that is important, it means that they may not always have your preferred timeline in mind – since an agent may choose to delay if they think they can get a higher price. Bypassing an agent and selling directly to a buyer, such as a buyer like us at www.TheTexasHouseBuyer.com can help you to sell your house faster.
