The housing market is still slowing down. There doesn’t seem to be a stop sign to the recession ahead. But recession or not, as a real estate investor, you’re still going to have to sell that house.
In the state that the housing market is in nowadays, people would consider it lucky enough when you’ve lowered the price just to hove sold the property. And you might be thinking: Is this the only way?
The answer is no. You can always sell it. Just sell it. No need to lower the price. Just sell it.
5 Tips In Selling the Property
- Create a Listing That Is Credible and Great!
When you’ve got an agent who wants to scan the list of properties you have at hand, engaging his or her attention will be important. Catch their interest by taking charge of your MLS listing and making it look great! Don’t just depend on the real estate brokers to create the listing for you.
Most MLS listings can be very boring to look at. To capture the attention of your clients, make your listing more lively. Print pictures that display the appealing parts of your property. Make sure the pictures are clear and well-photoshopped. Take pictures of the property in its most desirable form.
- Directional Signs
You have to make sure that your property can easily be located by your clients. Use lots of directional signs to avoid misunderstandings on the location. This is especially helpful for properties that are far from the main roads.
- Put up a Professional Sign In Front.
You can give out a sense of credibility and professionalism through putting up a professional sign in front of your property. As much as possible, do not use cheap signs where you have to roll up your flyer. A sign that has an attached flyer holder will instead be preferable, making it easier for people to pull out your flier when they pass by.
You can also encourage interested prospects to take a peek in the house by putting up the flyer box on the stoop of the home. All you have to do is place an arrow with a “More Information” phrase on your sign to direct them into your house.
- Not Just an Ordinary Flyer
Many people wouldn’t pay much attention to flyers. This is because almost all flyers are basically boring. Most investors would sometimes just print flyers in black and white. With a boring flyer, how could you possibly expect someone to notice it?
For starters, a flyer will catch a person’s attention if it’s in color. Lots of clear pictures will also add to the trick. Another concern about flyers is that they mostly focus on facts. Information alone won’t get a person to be interested in your property. Focus on showing pictures of your property in the fliers. Remember, you’re selling the house.
- Give that “Push”
Most sellers would be contented by having prospects take a look at the property and leaving them to make up their minds. This, though, will not be enough to make that sale.
Many prospective buyers are actually already ready to buy a house. They’re just not sure which house. In order for that house to be your house, you have to give the seller a little push to consider your property.
Always be ready with a contract. Try to get the buyer to leave you a deposit check, even if it is refundable. You never know he or she might really go along with buying the property. Get as much commitment as you can.
