Current Fast & Free Tips - By Owner Source

Last Updated: Wednesday, April 23, 2014
  • Interior Photographs - Take photographs of every room. Even if you suspect the room won't photograph well, shoot it anyway because the photo quality just might astonish you and be useable. Open drapes and blinds. Turn on lights. Focus on interesting details like the condition of a wood floor or a fireplace mantle. Remove trash cans and close toilet lids in bathrooms. Use floral arrangements in kitchens and dining rooms. Avoid shooting into mirrors because your image will reflect.
  • If you are a seller in , shoving a For Sale sign in your front yard isn't going to help much. Nor is plopping the listing into MLS. You've got to be aggressive and make your home stand out like a shining star among the hundreds of others on the market. Whether you plan to hire an agent in or you want to sell your home yourself, you can use these strategies to sell quickly and for more money in a depressed market.
  • If you decide to offer a commission to selling agents, you will want to put a lockbox on your premises for easy access by agents when you are not home.
  • Open Houses - Not every home is suitable for an open house due to location or other factors, and sometimes the only way to determine that is to try it. If nobody comes, that's probably a good indication. However, if your home is located near a high traffic area where buyers often swarm, then it's a good candidate. Place open house signs throughout the area directing buyers. Advertise in the newspaper. Advertise open house times online. Invite the neighbors; they're going to come anyway.
  • Signage - Signage encourages home shoppers to immediately call you or your agent. It's free advertising! If your home is a corner lot, put up two signs. Some homeowner associations prohibit real estate signs. Some HOAs allow only window signs. Try talking to a neighbor whose home is located at the corner of a busy street, asking for permission to put a sign in that yard with an arrow pointing toward yours. Agent signs should include the phone number of the closest office (if the brokerage operates multiple offices) and the agent's cell or voice mail number.
