When you list your house, you probably want it to sell as fast as possible. The potential for a fast sale is one reason it's best to work with a real estate agent to sell your home. An agent markets your house in ways you can't do as an individual seller. Here are three important ways an agent can help sell your home quicker.
Hold A Broker's Open House
Your agent may want to hold an open house that's only for other real estate agents as soon as your home goes on the market. This could help sell your home quicker since agents can see your home in person and decide if it's a good match for one of their clients. If so, this can get people touring your home much sooner than if you just wait for house hunters to spot your listing online or notice the sale sign in your yard. Buyer's agents are always looking for homes they can match to their clients, and getting these agents to tour your home is even better than having an open house for the public since one agent has access to many clients.
Hold A Public Open House
Another important way to get more people touring your home is to hold an open house on a weekend day when buyers are out attending open houses. You'll get some lookers that aren't really interested in your house, but you'll also get potential buyers who might not otherwise see your house because the listing description didn't meet their exact needs. Once they see your house, the prospective buyers may fall in love with it or the price and decide to put in a bid after the open house.
While looking at videos and photos of your home online is a good start, nothing is as good as touring your home in person, and some people may prefer to tour on their own by attending open houses before touring again later with their agent.
List Your Home With The MLS Service
It's good to list your home with the MLS service because this is the database that real estate agents use to see what homes are listed with other agencies besides their own. Your home gets more exposure when it's in the MLS database, and several major real estate websites pull MLS listings automatically, so your home appears several places online.
These are ways a real estate agent can help speed up the sale of your home, but these are just a few of the services an agent can provide that helps you sell your home quicker, at a fair price, and with the least amount of stress for you.
